Weddings & Functions

The Great Barn is ideal for the holding of Wedding Receptions and Wedding Photography. It is situated in a 3 acre site just to the south of Titchfield Abbey, with which it was associated since its erection in 1410AD.

The Great Barn at Titchfield is 156ft. long by 41ft. wide and 34ft. high and was built for the monastery situated at Titchfield Abbey in 1409/11, confirmed by dendrochronology (ring-dating) of the timbers. It is the largest barn in Hampshire, and one of the largest in England, and its unique structure, and magnificent condition, places it in the forefront of examples of medieval contemporaneous architecture.  Of particular interest are the ‘cruck-like’ timbers in the alternate minor trusses, and the longitudinal braces between the ridge beam and king posts in the apex of the roof.


The History of the site enhances the AMBIENCE of the occasion.  The Great Barn is grand in appearance and makes an ideal ‘back-drop’ for photography.  Marquees can be erected if required, thus extending the range of the function.  Electricity and Water is laid on, and adequate car-parking available, including for the Disabled.

The near vicinity of the “Fisherman’s Rest” and the “Titchfield Mill” public houses are an added bonus for those who wish to have a pre-function meeting place.  The “Holiday Inn”, the “Queen’s Head” and the “Abbey Guest House” provide very local accommodation.  The Great Barn is fully licensed and has bar facilities available to hire with or without staff.  Promotional material is available giving details of the history of the Great Barn.
