Winterbourne Medieval Barn, built in 1342, is a unique surviving example of a great medieval Barn built by a gentry family. Constructed using green timber methods, cutting edge technology for the time, it has been described as a magnificent example of the builders craft. Come and look around this beautiful building, set in rural South Gloucestershire, just outside Bristol.
The Main Barn will be open for you to look around at your leisure. Our tour guides will be available to answer any questions you have about our unique site and tell you about the barn’s history and amazing construction.
Our pop up cafe will also be open for more modern tastes!
Why not combine your visit with a trip to St Michael’s Church next door? Check their listing on the Heritage Open Days website for times. We’re also located next to Monks Pool Nature Reserve which makes the Barn an ideal starting point for exploring the local landscape.
All activities are free of charge although we are asking visitors to book a free morning or afternoon slot so that we can control numbers if we need to. Morning: 11am to 1.30pm. Afternoon: 1.30 – 4pm. Please arrive at any time within your time slot.
Look out for the A Board and bunting on the lane to direct you to the entrance of the Barn. Limited car parking is available onsite. We have plenty of cycle parking for those travelling by bike. The Barn is a short ten minute walk from Winterbourne High Street.
