Barns & Yard of Hanley Hall comprises a Tudor barn and farm cottages which have been carefully restored to create a unique venue for weddings and celebrations. The landscape includes a lake and many period features and is in a beautiful location set against the Malvern Hills. The owners wanted to blend the traditional buildings with a more contemporary design that would appeal to their wedding guests. Externally it was important to create beautiful open spaces as a backdrop for photography and for easy outdoor entertaining. Our Traditional Paving was used for this Beautiful Barn Restoration

Choosing traditional paving

"We saw that Westminster Stone did a National Trust range and knew their paving would be excellent quality and aesthetically correct. We needed a large quantity so although we would have loved to use natural stone, we couldn’t afford to - however, the handmade products have turned out to be even better as they are frostproof as well."

A range of contrasting products were ordered to provide different textures and a blend of colours to the external courtyards and terraces.

"We used a mix of Henslate flagstones and Castle Blend flagstones. They are beautiful, hardwearing, robust and just look ‘right’".
