- Community Events

In short, The Barns at Hunsbury is our ‘commercial arm’, providing invaluable revenue to support our charitable activities.
Northampton’s hidden jewel
The Barns at Hunsbury Hill is steeped in charm. Set in 13 acres of gardens and woodland, we’re on a hillside location overlooking the picturesque rolling countryside of South Northamptonshire. The Barns provides an idyllic setting for weddings, social and business events.
Only a few years ago, The Barns was a working farm. Since then we’ve completely renovated the site. We’ve retained the original buildings with their wonderful features – the exposed beams, the stonework and solid wooden flooring.
Now all our visitors agree – The Barns at Hunsbury Hill provides the perfect rural setting for every event!

History of The Barns….
The Hunsbury Hill Centre is a rare example of a model farm, built around 1776 by Edward Bouverie, including a large farmhouse, barns, animal sheds and ‘hovels’ set around an octagonal yard. Along with two smaller farms in the area, Hunsbury Hill farm was built to provide food to Delapre Abbey.
Overlooking the picturesque Nene Valley, the grade II listed building is situated in 13 acres of woodland and grounds. Northamptonshire ACRE is constantly looking for funding opportunities to develop and restore the grade II listed farm buildings
