Tell us a bit about your business…

Hayne is a substantial & versatile venue space, a magical setting for weddings, private parties, corporate events and as a film and shoot location.

Set amongst a sacred grove of ancient oak woodland within 25 acres of glorious grounds and enchanting gardens, the historic 17th century farmstead houses a range of grade II * listed Cob & Lime buildings which have been beautifully restored and converted under the sympathetic guidance of English Heritage.

What made you start your business…

Having played at numerous weddings and parties over the past 20 years, musicians Tim & Milla wanted to create a magical setting where they could imagine putting on the ultimate dream party. A warm, atmospheric and soulful place with characterful buildings, beautiful interiors, heavenly gardens, breathtaking views, delicious locally sourced food & drink and luxurious accommodation.

An extraordinary destination where everything one needs is here on site and for a long weekend, friends and family can come together, relax and let Hayne take them on an enchanting journey…

What kind of couples match your style of service…

Hayne is magical, atmospheric, soulful, charming, characterful, brimming with creativity, beautiful, heavenly, enchanting, warm and relaxing… I would suspect that the kind of couples that would be attracted to Hayne would also be attracted to these qualities of personality.

We are a small family run business and our home is our business. It is incredible to be able share the buildings, gardens and landscape with others. No day is ever the same, each day comes and brings with it new creative ideas and challenges.

We have a fantastic range of events happening throughout the year bringing new faces and new experiences all the time. Most of all we love the people we meet. Hayne is a truly enchanting, magical and atmospheric place and as a result it attracts like minded people….

It would be too hard to choose a favourite from all the fabulous weddings and events we have had here at Hayne…each is so very special & different. Highlights of in – house events include michelin trained chef Josh McDonald Johnson of fledgling pop up restaurant PICKLE SHACK cooking up a storm whilst music was provided by THE HAYNE HOT BAND playing a mix of Gypsy Jazz, Swing, Rock ‘n’ Roll, Country & Bluegrass.

Last Summer Mexican Chef Jorge Juarez and his cooking partner Jesse James came and ran a Mexican Street Food Cooking Masterclass at Hayne. A great time was had by all as we cooked DELICIOUS & SPICY street food while listening to Mexican music & drinking mojitos!

We are really looking forward to our next event here where we are lucky enough to host the first concert on Anda Union’s UK tour. Straight off the plane from Inner Mongolia the 9 piece band will be performing, running workshops and showing a film documentary celebrating their culture and revealing how music underpins the fabric of everyday life.

People’s reaction to your business…

We have had nothing but fantastic feedback about Hayne. People say such lovely things about it! Such as… it’s like the feeling of returning home after a long time away or bumping into an old treasured friend you have not seen for years or perhaps finding the key to a secret garden. Now restored to its former glory, people seem delighted when they experience the magic of Hayne.

Future Plans…

Our plans for Hayne are to continue to push our creative spirit. This year for the first time we are opening the gardens to the National Garden Scheme… We plan to plant a cutting garden for hand cut blooms, we want to continue to grow our accommodation options with more amazing spaces popping up around the fields, meadows and woodland. We will continue to put on pop up food and music events, workshops, gigs and hopefully start putting on a regular yoga class to keep all that work here happy and healthy.

Welcome to the team guys!

Hayne have an open day on Saturday 19th March 11am-3.30pm, so if you would like to attend please drop a RSVP to Tim & Milla at Flyer below…
