Long Barn

The Long Barn is an evolved yurt. It is an elongated yurt in the most perfect proportions and structurally at it’s optimum strength.

The footprint is 7m by 10m and is ideal for a cosy dinner party for up to 50 guests or as drinks reception area for your party. The design is aesthetically pleasing, unexpected and stands out as one of our most popular tents.

Like the yurt, the Long Barn is made from oiled English oak, chestnut and ash and 12oz waxed-cotton canvas to BS FWR (Fire, water, rot proof) standards. We follow the traditional design of steam-curved roof beams slotting in to a central wooden crown with trellis walls. The Long Barn is remarkably secure and sturdy.

The Long Barn can be erected on hard standing or on grass and works well as an attachment to a larger structure such as a Traditional Canvas Pole Tent or a Pavilion to either increase the capacity or create a chill-out area. It is the perfect size for a bar tent at a wedding.

We find the Long Barn is often requested as a ‘dormitory’ at parties.

As with the yurts and most of our tent stock, the Long Barn is manufactured in-house and we make to order for customers who would like an interesting semi-permanent entertaining space in their grounds. We will happily advise on and construct an appropriate decking for the Long Barn which is vital for long-term use.
