The Old Barn

The Old Barn at 1620s House & Garden has atmosphere and charm, offering an interesting space to hold intimate conferences, impress clients, deliver training or team sessions, as well as hire for family occasions and special events.  Sitting within the beautiful and tranquil grounds and gardens of the medieval manor house, this is a really special place for many events.

Alongside the space itself, the Old Barn has an established reputation for wonderful, homemade food, acting as our coffee shop when the site is open to the public. If you wish to hire the space, we are always very pleased to add food and refreshments of a high standard.  We are very happy to discuss your specific requirements and can work to all budgets to offer something memorable for you.

The 1620s House and Garden site is also available for hire for filming and photography sessions and if you wish to give event guests a really memorable experience, we can discuss including House access to any hire of The Barn, at an additional charge and subject to staffing availability.

We are happy to accommodate a visit to view our magical site and discuss your needs before you book, so please call us on 01455 290429 or e-mail dlhmanorhouse@leics.gov.uk to start your enquiry.
