Odo’s Barn sits just above the Royal Military Canal overlooking the Romney Marsh. The views are extremely far reaching and on a clear day you can see across the Channel to France and westwards right across to Rye and Winchelsea. On the West Side of the Barn sits the Bilsington Monument, erected to commemorate Sir Richard Cosway (see History of Odo’s Barn). This is a large obelisk and a very unusual backdrop for photos.
Odo’s Barn is a stones throw away from the 14th Century Norman Church, St Peter and St Paul. Couples may enjoy a traditional Church marriage followed by a short picturesque walk to the Barn for their wedding reception, or get married in Odo’s Barn itself.
The south facing terrace is a perfect spot to hold your drinks reception with far reaching views. The terrace can be covered with a marquee to give you extra space and flexibility. To the west side of the Barn sits the Bilsington Monument, a landmark and memorial to local philanthropist, Sir Richard Cosway (see more in history). It also provides an interesting backdrop for your photographs.
There is a large car park and the surrounding area is perfect for marquees should you need extra space. A former stable block has been converted into modern lavatory facilities.
