Bonhams Barn is a 250 year-old oak-framed barn, lovingly restored over the past 30 years, and now refurbished and modernised specifically for entertaining. Over the course of its life it has also regularly been used for celebratory events by us, the Cannon family. We have lived on the farm since 1979 and have used it for many of our special occasions.
“Extraordinary Hampshire barn venue”
Since its rebirth as a bespoke events venue, the Barn can be used as a stand-alone venue, accommodating up to 130 people. In addition, many clients opt to use it for one part of their celebration: either as the main dining area, purely for music and dancing, or as a bar with chill-out area. The location and design of the Barn lends itself wonderfully to supporting additional temporary structures, as might be desired – marquees and bar-areas have all been used in the past to perfectly meet our clients’ requirements.
The Barn is over 2,300 sq ft, and comprises a dining area, dance-floor and toilets – all overlooked by a stunning upstairs gallery, and framed by solid oak beams. A professional lighting consultant was employed to install over 50 specialist lights, to showcase the wonderful craftsmanship throughout the building.
Despite its size, the Barn retains an intimate, comfortable atmosphere – accentuated by a stunning custom-built wood burner, which is immensely popular with all our guests. Bright and airy in the summer, warm and cosy in the winter, it offers you a stunning canvas upon which to make your own special mark to create the event of your dreams.
We are not registered to hold civil ceremonies in the barn.
