After many years of planning The Barn at Botley Hill is due to open.
Work began on The Barn at Botley Hill in October 2018, and now the main structure is complete. We’ll welcome our first weddings in June 2019.
The Barn is set to be a stylish new venue for weddings, black-tie dinners and private parties in the Surrey countryside.
“When I look at the view from The Barn I actually get goose bumps” says Nicole Joubert, one of the driving forces behind the project.
Ideal Surrey Location
The Barn at Botley Hill is next door to the historic Botley Hill Farmhouse, which you may already be familiar with. We’re near the towns of Oxted, Woldingham and Warlingham in Surrey – within easy reach of London. The new venue is situated on the former RAF Botley Hill, a strategic location during World War Two.
The most breath-taking feature is the floor to sky glass windows. These feature windows give guests a panoramic view across the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
“Ever since we first set eyes on the location, the key focus has always been to maximise on the views,” said Joubert.
Beautifully Crafted Design
With just a few months to go until the first wedding takes place the Botley team have been busy sourcing the final touches. Aged porcelain tiles have been shipped from Italy. The tables have been hand crafted by local carpenters from reclaimed wood.
For some parts of the project, we’ve enlisted the help of Emma Kirby. Emma was part of the design team behind the vintage-modern look of Soho Farmhouse in Oxfordshire – the private members’ country retreat and celebrity favourite.
“The Barn will be a harmonised blend of rustic elegance with contemporary features and will be beautiful in its own right. Customers will be able to enjoy the surroundings as they are or use them as a backdrop to create their own unique theme for their wedding or exclusive event,” says Sheila Benson of The Barn at Botley Hill team.
Exciting New Wedding Venue
Wedding guests will access the barn venue from a private driveway. Entrance into The Barn will be through a smaller barn attached to the main building. As well as a reception area for weddings or intimate parties, this space will be a cosy break-out area with comfortable seating, rugs and a wood burner.
The two barns will lead out onto the decking where a gazebo, informal seating and fire pits will allow for continued socialising outdoors.
The south-facing garden will draw its inspiration from nature with wild grasses and aged steel planters, leading the eye to the fields and across to the North Downs. In the opposite direction, on a clear day, guests will be able to see the outline of Canary Wharf and The Shard. London is just 12 miles away as the crow flies.
TIE THE KNOT AT BOTLEY HILL BARN
The Barn at Botley Hill is a brand new luxury wedding venue on the Titsey Estate. Within easy reach of London, the new Surrey venue enjoys spectacular views of the North Down. The Barn will hold up to 128 people seated.
