Full Description
Our venue is full of charm. We have stunning views across the urban landscape of Northampton to the rolling countryside of the South Northants Nene Valley. Dating back to 1776, this former working farm comprises of a complex of farmhouse, 2 barns and several outbuildings. After a sympathetic conversion to modern use, the barns still retain a lot of their features, with exposed wooden beams, stonework and solid wood flooring creating a rustic, country styled interior that lends itself wonderfully to intimate events. Sitting in 13 acres of land, from well tendered English styled gardens to dense woodland areas, The Barns at Hunsbury Hill are part of a ‘Hanoverian’ tradition and a rare and unique example of a model farm. The farm complex was built in 1776 as the Hunsbury Hill Farm by Edward Bouverie and along with two smaller farms in the area, provided food to nearby Delapre Abbey. An octagonal grassed courtyard takes centre stage with the Farmhouse, two barns, the larger High Barn and the smaller, more intimate Low Barn, animal sheds and ‘hovels’ wrapping themselves around this focal point. Not only does the courtyard provide a great flow to your event, but also great shelter, enabling us to use the outside as much as possible to offer a ‘typical’ summer English event. We know that no two weddings are the same. Not only should your wedding look like the image you have created in your mind, but also, more importantly the day should be the most enjoyable day of your life. With that, experience is needed! We have bundles of experience and will work with you to make sure every detail is covered so we share your vision and thoughts. The Barns make a perfect backdrop to your wedding, the rustic charm of exposed beams and brick give a warm intimate vibe. Not to mention our High Barn looks great against your decor, whether it be filled with tissue paper pompoms, jam jars of country flowers wrapped in lace, oodles of bunting, or left simple and elegant.

We love this place
We held our wedding here! So a slight bias review. We love this place, from the very first visit at a wedding fair to the big day. We have been looked after. The level of customer service was incredible. On our special day there physically was nothing that they couldn't of done for us. Hayley did not stop all day!! This woman needs a cape and a S on her chest. She ran to Tesco's to get us dummies as we couldn't find our little boys ones. She became a pro at sterilising bottles. As for stuart and his super hugs... this man knows how to calm a heated situation. I would highly recommend anyone that wished a chilled wedding venue to come visit this location. A massive thank you to all staff members who really looked after us.

Fantastic Venue
Fantastic venue hidden in Northampton. Suitable for any party type occasion with bar onsite. The bar accepts cards which is great. The food for the evening was a BBQ style and works well. Make sure you prebook your taxi if leaving late as there was an hour wait!

We had the best day and would highly recommend The Barns to anyone!
A massive thank you to Hayley, Stuart, Sarah and the team for making our wedding day so perfect. The venue is beautiful and the food was incredible. Our guests have commented so much on how impressed they were with the food. We had the sharing boards to start, a lamb main and a lemon meringue pudding. The evening food was a big hit too with the pulled pork shack. Hayley made sure that our day ran smoothly, it was all perfect and we hardly noticed the staff were there. Hayley is so organised and people kept mentioning to us how impressed they were. We had the best day and would highly recommend The Barns to anyone! Thank you all so much!

Truly the happiest day of our lives and so perfect, thank you to all staff for making our special day possible
Myself and Gemma wanted to say a big THANK YOU to all the staff at The Barns for making our day (01/08/19) so memorable and special. The room changes were seamless and quick, and staff were approachable and friendly. Hayley the events manager, was assigned to us and was absolutely FANTASTIC! I cannot stress how unbelievable she was. Nothing was too much, she was extremely attentive to us and our guests, always going the extra mile. 100% on the ball the whole time! She made the whole day so stress free and even the guests commented on how brilliant she is at her job. Our day was perfect and we owe a huge part of that to Hayley, so thank you! The venue itself is so picturesque, with so much character! So well maintained and beautiful, the images speak for themselves. The food was impeccable and greatly enjoyed by all. Truly the happiest day of our lives and so perfect, thank you to all staff for making our special day possible because it wouldn't have been as amazing if it wasn't for you all. Sarah was also brilliant during the build up period, answering so many questions so quickly, thank you. So a final massive thank you to everyone at The Barns who made our day so special. Lots of love, Mrs & Mrs Simonds
