The gardens of Hales Hall are the main focus point with the accommodation & the Great Barn surrounding them. The picturesque gardens feature established herbaceous plants and trees, topiary, and a moated area complete with a fountain, all of which provide you with a stunning backdrop for your wedding photographs.
The bespoke lighting and sound system inside the Grade I listed Tudor brick barn (the largest of its kind in Britain!) can be tailored to create you the atmosphere that you require, and provide background music throughout your ceremony and wedding breakfast, and outstanding acoustics for bands and DJs in the evening. We also have modern bathroom facilities which include a baby changing area, housed in the neighbouring stables.
