The barn at Tall John's House is in the process of being restored to provide a warm, light , versatile space - perfect for gatherings of all types - whilst preserving its original rustic charm.
The enclosed rear courtyard provides a very sheltered outdoor space, perfect for drinks, smokers, canapes or simply socializing. The front courtyard offers breathtaking views across the valley to the Black Mountains.
In the courtyard complex there are permanent toilet facilities and a self-catering cottage providing 3 en-suite bedrooms to sleep six people. This can also be used as a creche, or a sitting out area for worn out party-goers!
Also adjoining the courtyard complex is The Coachman's. This is a luxurious romantic getaway for 2 people - ideal for a couple on their wedding night. It is entirely private and couples will be treated to a breakfast basket of good things!
One of the best features of Tall John's House is the wonderful setting. Surrounded by its own land, Tall John's House has spacious lawns - ideal for pre-dinner drinks and photographs - and a historic and carefully maintained walled garden with many spots to capture those memorable photographic moments!
The crowning glory of the property is the historic Manor House of Tall John's. A 16th century Welsh longhouse, later renovated in the Georgian period and now brought right into the 21st century with en-suite bathrooms, modern fittings and even fibre-optic internet - yet the atmosphere and character will make guests feel they have stepped into a Jane Austen novel. The manor house is staffed by our delightful chef and house-keeper and meals can be provided for house guests as and when required. The manor house provides the perfect and private base for the pre-wedding rehearsal dinner and for the family to join together and celebrate.
Although we are a blank canvas venue, TJH management have a comprehensive list of local suppliers, and will be delighted to help you plan your day.
