Historical barn venue

Over 100 years of history

The Barn was originally built in 1889 by Sir Hussey Packe, serving as a model farm to show good farming practices on the Prestwold Estate.

It was used until the early 20th century but the rise of industrial farming left the Barn abandoned and unloved. In 2011, Edward Packe-Drury-Lowe, current owner of the Prestwold Estate and great-grandson of Sir Hussey Packe, decided it was time to breathe some life back into the Barn.

We’ve now taken the Barn to exciting new places, converting it into a beautiful and modern event space. We’ve made sure to stay faithful to the history of the building, but we’ve also added in some posh loos, showers and heating to keep our guests comfy and cosy.
