An ideal location for every event…

Buckminster is a quintessentially British village recognised for its idyllic and unspoilt landscape, picturesque architecture, tranquil setting and vibrant community. Located within the village is an attractive stone built 19th century country pub, namely the Tollemache Arms, with recently refurbished en-suite rooms.

Only a stones-throw away from Buckminster Barn is the attractive Grade one listed St. John the Baptist Church with seating for over 250 which promises a memorable venue for weddings, christenings or anniversary celebrations.

Set just three and a half miles off the A1, Buckminster is within easy reach of the market towns of Stamford, Melton Mowbray and Grantham. Nottingham, Leicester and Loughborough are conveniently situated within a 20-mile radius of the village, and London is only a two hour car or 65 minute train journey away.

Buckminster Barn 

Positioned within a tranquil and gloriously attractive setting, Buckminster Barn is a sympathetically converted farm building combining distinctly traditional features with stylish contemporary finishing. The oak wooden beams, flag-stone flooring and a wood-burning stove provide for a country life feel. The floor to ceiling windows and opening French doors providing panoramic views over endlessly rolling countryside, a beautiful sight from dusk till dawn! Enjoy Buckminster Barn at any time of the year – whether keeping warm with the log-burning stove or opening the doors to enjoy a beautiful summer’s day.  The Barn is perfect for business meetings & conferences, product launches, private dining and corporate parties, birthdays, wakes and christenings.

The Park & Lakeside

The Park and Lakeside extends to 5 acres of spectacular countryside and can be used for a range of small and large scale events, including exhibitions, shows, concerts, team building events and perfect for both film and photography.    We work with some talented local suppliers who can cater for your event, whether it’s event management, catering or a team building activity you require support with, we’re happy to help. We are a no obligation venue, you have the freedom to organise your day to suit your requirements.   Let us help you build your memorable event at our stunning Park and Lakeside, an area of outstanding natural beauty.
