We bet you’ve never sat back to watch a film in a 14th century barn...well here’s your chance. The Barn Cinema in Devon’s Dartington Hall estate is an independent cinema situated in a renovated historic barn. Better yet, the barn caters for all film tastes, showing independent arthouse films as well as the latest to hit the big screen.
The cinema is open every day of the week, and you’ll find a programme that includes world cinema and mainstream. It may have started life as a barn, but it’s now a comfortable cinema that makes a lovely spot to watch a film and drift away. Dartington Hall Estate is close to Totnes in South Devon, and its medieval courtyard makes it just the place for some time out in the peace and quiet.
Take a walk in the landscaped gardens while you wait for the film to start and enjoy the experience of a cinema in a cosy barn. The Barn hosts special children’s matinees on Saturdays, so look out for BarnKids screenings. Despite its heritage, there is disabled access to the Barn Cinema, just phone the box office in advance for advice 01803 847070.There is parking at Dartington Hall.
