Conferences & Events Venue
If you're looking for somewhere a little bit different for your next conference, board meeting or training day please call us on 01376 561448 to discuss your requirements.
The barn complex offers theatre-style seating for approximately 120 people. We can seat up to 140 people for working breakfast briefings. There are three 'break out' areas for group working. Catering can be arranged to meet your needs - from simple coffee and buffet through to three course fine dining.
In the house, the dining room doubles up as a smart boardroom for more formal meetings for up to 12 people. There are also six bedrooms if you are looking for overnight accommodation.
Houchins is easy to find. It is half a mile off the A120, one mile east of Coggeshall. That means it is just 15 minutes from Colchester and Braintree, half an hour from Chelmsford, approximately 35 minutes from Stansted and about 1 hour 30 minutes from Central London.
And unlike some rural locations, it also has a good mobile phone signal!
Come and see us here at Houchins on 21st June, 2017.
Next open evening, Wednesday 21st June 6pm - 9pm.
Come and visit us on Wednesday 21st June when Houchins will be 'dressed' for a wedding so you'll be able to see how stunning the venue can look on Wedding Days.
Our team, along with a select group of our preferred suppliers will be on hand to discuss your wedding plans in more detail.
We look forward to meeting you then.
Dove Barn, our sister venue, just 30 minutes from Houchins.
Wedding Show, Sunday 2nd April, 11am-3pm. Free entry and goodie bag for all brides.
Dove Barn is where our wedding business started in 2002. A charming, rustic barn just behind the historic Castlings Hall near Sudbury in South Suffolk needed restoring and we took on that challenge. Since 2002 we have held over 300 weddings at Dove Barn and it has variously been described as 'quirky', 'laid-back', 'a hidden gem of a venue' and 'full of rural calm'. If you are looking for a unique venue just off the beaten track take a look at our website:
And we still have some availaibility for 2017
