About the Long Barn
The Long Barn is one of the most spacious and exquisite barns in Hampshire. Nestled in the picturesque village of Newton Valence, amidst spectacular rolling countryside, The Long Barn offers breathtaking views from one of the highest points in the South Downs National Park.
The oak-framed building and flint walls that date back to 1764 have been lovingly restored by the owners. The large open space creates a majestic atmosphere providing a blank canvas on which to create a truly bespoke occasion.
The split level space provides two distinct, adjoining areas. The top end provides the seating arrangement for just over 200 guests. The lower area is perfect for reception drinks and evening entertainment, featuring a full size dance floor and a large bar area.
Fairy lights sparkle along the original beams, illuminating the spectacular ceiling and perfectly complimenting the unique structure, creating a truly magical atmosphere. An efficient heating system inside and a log fire pit outside allow us to make sure guests are comfortable, no matter what the weather.
The spacious industrial kitchen attached to the venue allows easy access for your chosen caterers. See our list of trusted caterers here.
The en-suite Bridal Room and luxury cloakroom facilities are all available within the Barn.
Surrounded by a 7 acre maintained field, additional marquees or outdoor events can be arranged. We welcome weddings, theatrical productions, charity dinners and auctions, corporate dinners, family celebrations and birthdays.
