Photoshoot location

The design of the great barn provides ample space and lighting opportunities for photoshoots. Our Great Barn is a popular venue of choice for many household brand names who hire our settings for their photoshoots.

In addition to hosting the venue for these photoshoots, both indoors and outdoors, we have also provided the catering for off-site photoshoots, catering for up to hundreds over several days, which is always an option if your photoshoot is close by.

The Great Barn is where we recommend holding larger conferences, training sessions and exhibitions, which has capacity for 180 seated delegates and 250 standing. As standard, we provide a projector, screen, AV facilities and stationary.

The layout of the barns opens opportunities for multiple break-out areas and group discussions in the Cart Shed, whilst the Forge offers a more relaxed area for small group meetings
