Wed Magazine feature shoot

On Wednesday 10th June we had the immense honour of hosting a feature shoot for Wed Magazine here at Hendra Barns.  The experienced and talented team came together to create a stunning shoot, styled by Elle at Inspire Hire, and we were blessed with beautiful weather. That’s all we can say until the magazine comes out […]

The Hendra Barns wedding arbour is complete

Complete with slate paved floor, we are delighted to show the completed wedding arbour at the lakeside.  Some fragrant planting is planned to soften the edges, where the new grass is starting to shoot up. And iff you’re interested in viewing the arbour up close, just register for our one-off Wedding Open Evening on Wednesday 10th […]

Wedding Open Evening

Wedding Open Evening – 10th June 2015 Cornwall’s exclusive residential wedding resort invites you in, for one night only. Hendra Barns is a private resort nestled in a secluded valley at the heart of Cornwall.  Our new wedding arbour – now licensed for ceremonies – has been handcrafted in Cornish oak, uniquely set at the […]

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 […]

Licensed for Ceremonies

We are celebrating here at Hendra Barns. Today we hosted a final inspection from Cornwall Council for our ceremonies license application. We are delighted to say that the inspector was also delighted!  Although the arbour is not yet finalised, the structure exceed their expectations, and they’re excited to add such a beautiful setting to the range […]

5500 Cornish Slates

The mammoth job of pinning 5500 slates to the roof of the new wedding arbour at Hendra Barns has begun.  Each of the slates – we are using ‘delabole’ slate from Cornwall – has to be trimmed and pinned. Hendra Barns’ owner and the craftsman behind the arbour, and all of the quality building work […]

Seven Tonnes of Oak and Two Cornishmen

Cornish craftsmen have created some of the most beautiful structures in the country and, though we may be biased, we think our new wedding arbour is nothing short of magnificent. Owner Ken Evans is a skilled carpenter – he renovated all the barn buildings himself – and most recently he has turned his hand to crafting a […]

Announcing our Wedding Collaboration

  We are delighted to announce that we have partnered with Jenny Wren Weddings to offer our venue for wedding ceremonies and receptions. Having hosted a small number of wedding receptions upon request in the past, Hendra Barns has unrealised potential as an exclusive rural venue, and is anticipating it’s license for ceremonies in the New Year. A wooden […]

Fork Magazine features Hendra Barns

Hendra Barns’ owner Ken Evans was featured in the latest Fork magazine about managing deer in Cornwall for venison meat.  He escorted journalist Katy Davidson on a dawn deer stalk in central Cornwall, with the aim of understanding the relationship between man and meat, and meanwhile she discovered the beauty in the peaceful countryside. You can […]
