The Hayloft venue is available for hire year-round, with windows that open for a lovely breeze in the summer months and heaters to keep toasty over the winter. There is a small kitchen just below the Hayloft venue with free tea and coffee-making facilities to enjoy during your visit. A toilet and shower block are also available for use next to the kitchen, which includes a fully wheelchair accessible toilet and shower.
The Hayloft venue is an ideal space to practice yoga – a light and airy atmosphere which lends itself well to relaxation and mindfulness. This space is perfect for holding one-off yoga sessions, weekly or monthly yoga classes, and yoga retreats. We can supply high-quality YogaMatters kits for your yoga class at no extra cost. With lovely natural scenery just around the corner, you can immerse yourself in yoga and then enjoy a lovely stroll through the fields and woodlands of Highway Hill.
The Hayloft venue can be used to hold a variety of fitness activities, from private training sessions to medium-sized exercise classes. The exposed, low-hanging wooden beams can be used for hanging punching bags for boxing classes and pull-up ropes for strength and conditioning classes. There are electrical sockets and wifi available if you would like to play music during your sessions. We can supply yoga mats and blocks for you to use during your classes at no extra cost.
With its open-plan layout and natural lighting, the Hayloft provides a breathable and welcoming atmosphere to hold your business meetings, training sessions, or away days. The space can be set up as per your booking needs and requirements, with tables and chairs in either theatre or boardroom style, along with a flip chart on request. There are electrical sockets dotted around the Hayloft if you have multiple computers and work stations and access to wifi is also available.
The Hayloft venue can also be used to hold regular or one-off book club sessions, discussion groups, choir or music practice, arts and crafts, family activities, photography, and much more. We are happy to accommodate a variety of get-togethers and needs, and the space can be arranged in the manner most suitable for your activity if requested in advance.
In March and November, the Safari Tent, is available as an optional add-on to the Hayloft venue. This makes a great communal space at meal and social times. It’s also perfect if you’d like your caterers to set up the meals for you in a separate area to your main event.
