Last week I was kindly shown around the very beautiful and newly restored venue Hendall Barn by the lovely owners Peter and Nicola.
The couple have made the most splendid job of restoring the barn and the warm colours of the sandstone and the beams make the space feel very warm and cosy.All the little details are just right.
Hendall was originally a dairy farm and Peter and Nicola have put a huge amount of love, time and effort into totally transforming the place.In addition to hiring out the barns as a wedding and party venue they also intend to put on lots of lovely events such as Shakespearian plays, charitable outdoor musical evenings with picnics on the lawn and art exhibitions.So if you live in and around the Sussex area then keep an eye out for what`s on .
As soon as I stepped inside the barn I was immediately thinking how great it would be to style it for a vintage themed wedding or event! Watch out for a vintage inspired photo shoot in the Spring....
The garden is also fabulous, courtyard in style with a fantastic arty wall made from pale grey slates.
In the summer it will be wonderful to wander in and out of the big doors with a glass of Pimms in hand,a jazz band playing, ideally with afternoon tea on the lawn!
I have a feeling this place is going to be the place to be once the word gets out......
