Beams and rafters

The Cross Barn, in the charming medieval village of Odiham, is one of the earliest agricultural buildings built of brick in Hampshire, and one of the jewels in the valuable collection of Odiham's historic buildings.

Originally built in 1532 during the reign of Henry VIII, the Cross Barn was expertly converted in 1997. Its size and position in the centre of the village make it an ideal venue with a difference for meetings, exhibitions, country fairs, lectures, classes, private functions, celebrations and children's parties.

The Great Hall, the largest room in the Cross Barn, has under-floor heating, and the lighting has recently been upgraded to LED which now strategically lights the main areas with up-lighters for ambience and down-lighters for bright, even illumination at table-top height.

The Cross Barn can accommodate up to 150 people.

Additionally there is a separate upstairs meeting room, King John's Loft, which will comfortably accommodate 10 people at a meeting table or a maximum of 25 seated in rows. This room is let independently from The Great Hall.

There is a small terrace on the south side of the Barn which is available as part of the hire fee for pre-lunch or dinner drinks, or for hog-roasts and barbeques.

The Cross Barn has become a Hub of Community Life in Odiham and is available to hire throughout the week and at weekends, 365 days of the year!
