Healey Barn is a wonderful new wedding venue in the Northumbrian countryside, near the small village of Healey, just 19 and 24 miles from the centres of Newcastle and Durham respectively.
The venue is made up of a collection of traditional stone farm buildings surrounding a sheltered courtyard.
The main building, the Long Barn, has a spectacular oak “raised cruck” roof, giant candelabra, wall-mounted candle holders, a fairy-lit ceiling and a barn-sized stone fireplace. This creates an enchanting and romantic atmosphere, perfect for Civil Ceremonies or for the arrival point after a Church Wedding – and this later becomes the dance floor!
The Dining Room has a lovely oak roof, a glass wall looking into the Courtyard, and a fantastic Northumbrian view. It suits smaller numbers, but will accommodate higher numbers. At the end of the room is the bar, which has a licence until 1am.
The sheltered Courtyard is perfect for post-ceremony drinks and at night looks magical with fairy-lit trees, fire pits and lanterns. There are giant oak planters, umbrella-topped trees, cosy sun traps and planted troughs and borders.
They like to make their food dramatic as well as delicious, so there’s an 8-spit rotisserie, and large mobile BBQ.
