The Great Barn at Hales Hall
The Great Barn at Hales Hall is a unique location for your wedding, party or celebration. Set in beautiful rural South Norfolk in the heart of the Waveney Valley, 13 miles from Norwich, 6 miles from Beccles and half an hour to the coast, the beautiful Grade One Listed Tudor barn is a fantastic setting to welcome your guests. The imposing ‘queen post’ roof with exposed timbers and thatched roof create a feeling of spacious elegance.
As the largest brick-built barn in the country the Great Barn can comfortably seat up to 200 guests and can accommodate more for an informal reception. Upstairs is our airy Gallery room with stunning views across the fields which can be used throughout your event as a relaxed lounge or retreat.
We welcome your original ideas for decorating the medieval barn in your own style to create an individual space perfectly suited to your tastes.
We are licensed for Civil Marriages and Civil Partnerships which can take place in the main Barn or upstairs in the Gallery.
We have a fully licensed bar offering a wide range of wines, local beers, lagers and spirits which is offered throughout your event. We can offer a broad range of in-house catering options to suit your preferences.
