The Collecting Yard & Gardens

Surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens and picture-perfect hideaways including our resident alpaca’s field, Southend Barns provides a romantic haven all year round.

The spacious and perfectly maintained central courtyard is ideal for mingling with guests, entertaining, musical performances and evening relaxation, with your choice of seating and dining provided by experienced caterers and staff. The all-weather Collecting Yard comes complete with terrace bar, sheltered alfresco seating and roaring fire pit.

Our glorious countryside setting boasts plenty of picturesque backdrops for photos and as evening falls the gardens are romantically lit to create an enchanting evening experience.
