Your Arrival

Having driven through the historic village of Saltwood and passed Saltwood Castle on your right, the country lane leads you directly onto the Hayne Barn Estate   Hayne Barn Estate also includes additional accommodation.  As you and your guests make your way up the drive it is planted with stunning cherry trees that come into blossom around Easter every year, (to read more see our Spring Weddings at Hayne House Blog) and to the left is a discrete road that leads to the additional accommodation that can be booked for a minimum of two nights.

Take in the beautiful landscape,  until you reach the car park, where there is ample parking for all of your guests and yes they can leave their cars overnight.

The Woodland Path

Your guests then make their way down the romantic woodland path that guides them from the large car park, adorned with festoon lights. It is perfect for your evening guests to know where to go and gives you and your photographer an amazing opportunity for evening photos.
