Art Exhibitions


Dove Barn Art organises mixed, multi-artist shows on an ad hoc basis. Historically part of the proceeds always go to charity and since the exhibitions started in 2004 Dove Barn has raised over £20,000.00 for Barnardo’s, Teenage Cancer Trust and the YMCA.

For more information please email us.




Dove Barn is a flexible space designed to create a relaxed atmosphere for small conferences and training/team building days.

Set up 'theatre style' the traditional barn will accommodate up to 50 in comfort.

Around the boardroom table we can seat up to 30 people

Prices start from £35 (ex VAT) per delegate for a minimum of 20 delegates. This price includes non-alcoholic refreshments throughout the day and a substantial finger food lunch. Larger numbers (up to 150) can be accommodated in the 'White Space', a 40’ square barn adjoining Dove Barn. This is a summer option only.

Please contact us direct on 01787 860126 to discuss your requirements.

“Dove Barn was the perfect venue for us- beautiful, peaceful and completely relaxed. It was great that we had the venue for the whole weekend to decorate just how we wanted. We loved the flexibility, hard work and helpfulness of both Jayson and the team at Dove for allowing us to create our own special day, in our own style. Thank you! We had the best time ever and wish we could do it all over again! x”
