We love this Secret Space because…
Not only is it situated close to the attractions of the Cotswold Lavender Farm and 15th-century Snowshill Manor, there is a 2-bedroom Cotswold stone cottage on site too which can be rented through Character Cottages.
With stunning views across the verdant, rolling landscape of the Cotswolds countryside, Smallthorns Barn is set within the open grounds of a farm estate. Conveniently located for the chocolate-box village of Snowshill and within easy reach of the hotels, restaurants and art galleries of Broadway and Stow-on-the-Wold, it is a fantastic blank canvas space. This adaptable event venue is available for corporate away days and team building activities and other special occasions.
Smallthorns Barn has two separate areas; the smaller of the two barns with its wood-panelled walls and a giant wood burner is a warmer more intimate space. Whilst the adjoining tithe barn with its stone-flagged floors and Cotswold stone walls presents a more rustic event space. Both rooms have soaring vaulted ceilings open to the rafters.
As a dry hire venue, whatever your event the space here is yours to define from the food and drink that you choose to serve; to the decoration of the space; to the music your guests dance to, you really can create your own bespoke event. The owners are able to recommend local companies to assist you with your plans or you can engage your own, whichever you prefer.
The beautiful setting at Smallthorns Barn is bound to inspire, making it a great space to hold a meeting where creative thinking without distractions is on the agenda. The wood-panelled area of the barn works well for more traditional meetings, whether that be for senior management looking to escape the conformity of the office or for groups seeking a space to spread out and brainstorm.
Whilst for team building days, there is the option of the outdoor space available in the farm fields or for indoor activities, there is the blank canvas of the tithe barn.
If you have always dreamed of having a themed party for your milestone birthday or wedding anniversary, then Smallthorns gives you the ability to do just that. Of course, the rustic setting lends itself to a countryside-style theme, but it really is up to you whether you choose hay bales and a hoe-down or glitz and glam.
Please note; Smallthorns Barn is not available for weddings.
