The arbour is revealed in full glory

The roof of our wedding arbour is complete! The cone shape required the slates to be cut smaller and smaller the further towards the top they progressed, which made for tricky work at a 45-degree angle and at such a great height.  And the top four or five rows are tiny indeed, but are now in […]

Stunning signage

Hendra Barns is tucked away in a quiet valley, accessed by some roads you could only describe as Cornish, narrow in width with high hedges, which at this time of year are in full bloom with bluebells and campions. We furnish our guests with maps to guide them to us, the short distance that remains […]
