The Great Barn was originally built in 1580 and was moved to its present site in 1745 when the house was built. This listed barn, with its original beams dating back to 1490, has a very impressive structure. Before the advent of modern farming, it was used as a threshing barn where sheaves of wheat were stored and threshed during the winter months. Having lain redundant for 50 years, Anna & Jamie came up with the plan to use it for events – thus saving this very special building from dereliction and preserving it for generations to come. Work began in 2010 and was completed in 2014. The restored Great Barn was the winner of the 2015 Chilterns Building Design Award.
Now fully restored to the highest standard, it benefits from oak floors, under floor heating, sophisticated lighting, luxury loos and air conditioning. Interesting quirky features include a cloistered walkway, garden room with an open log fire and a French fountain and these are what make The Great Barn @ Micklefield a genuinely unique venue.
There is ample parking on site.
