Over Barn is a beautifully rustic wooden barn venue, located at Gloucester’s Over Farm.

Originally built for grain storage more than 170 years ago, the barn was given a new lease of life in 2010, when it become an event venue. The dusty beams were sandblasted clean, the dirt floor was concreted and the roof was repaired to keep the wet out. Apart from that, the barn is as it was built and has a great character, which makes for atmospheric parties and wedding receptions.

The barn venue holds up to 120 people for a sit down meal and up to 180 people for a party. Adjacent to the barn is a large open courtyard with undercover seating, a skittle alley and fire pit. Inside you’ll find a fully licensed bar,  made from an oak tree, that was grown on the farm.

There are a range of hire packages for the barn, as well as on site accommodation.
