This page is about the Tithe Barn room that adjoins the main accommodation at Gins Barn. This space is not included in your normal rental here but you can request to use it. We charge for any planned use of the space.
People usually use it for smart dinners, an extra sitting room, events and weddings. It is mainly for use in the warm months. During the winter months gets very cold. It takes 24 hours of wood burner heat to warm it up. There is no central heating. You’d have to be wearing gloves to play the piano!
This room is part of the owners area at the property and it is not a guarantee that it will be available for your stay. We do not rent this space, nor does the owner use it much, when there are guests in the main accommodation.
The Tithe is not a specifically set up event venue, it is part of the owners house and is set up, each time, for rental purpose. This means moving furniture, the piano, parking issues, boat mooring issues, guests walking through the owners gardens, security staff etc.
The Tithe will seat 30 at tables. Or 100 standing up for drinks.
Pricing for event hire starts at the barn starts from £1000.
We hosted our first big wedding celebration, with giant marquee on the lawns, in May 2016. Look at our blog here.
Family celebrations – 70th and 80th birthdays with the whole family in tow.
The barn is suitable for less mobile people too. There are two steps 8″ each step into the barn from the parking area. You can park right outside the main door. The doorways are wide enough for regular sized wheelchairs but there isn’t any specific adaptation through the house for chairs. There is a very slight step of 2″ between the hall and the sitting room which will be a speed bump for those in chairs.
So if you are organising a group with less mobile people then read our ideas (and tested excursions) here in our blog ‘Holidaying with less mobile folk? Here’s where to go, what to do!’
And if you are organising a celebration for those in their 60’s + please visit our blog post ‘Four easy ideas for memorable 60th, 70th & 80th birthdays’
