This beautiful timber-framed 15th-century dwelling-house was originally built by a farmer called Byrd. It stayed in the family for generations, becoming a hostelry at some indeterminate point before 1900. The last owner, the formidable Miss Lola Taplin, passed away in 1977 and gave the inn to The National Trust.
Today the pub is a vibrant centre of the local community, often hosting traditional or folk events including music sessions in the pub and Morris Dancing outside, and even pays regular tribute to the wonderful vegetable that is asparagus by organising and celebrating its own dedicated festival, 'Asparafest', once a year.
This beautiful space was originally created in the 17th century, and today hosts licensed civil ceremonies under its lovely oak roof-beams - all intertwined with festive hops and fairy-lights!
Enjoy drinks and canapés in the gardens or the main pub whilst The Barn is turned around for a cosy formal wedding reception.
After the wedding breakfast, when the speeches have finished, it's time to clear tables and cut some moves on the dancefloor!
