Barnard Castle

Murder Mystery Evening

Our first MURDERMYSTERY evening takes place this Saturday here at THE JERSEY FARM HOTEL, BARNARD CASTLE, COUNTY DURHAM.

These are really popular fun evenings that we have been hosting for over 10 years now. We also have been using the same production company for the plots, MURDERMYSTERYPRODUCTIONS.

Mark Harris and his team of professional actors write a new plot every time so repeat customers don’t see that same scenario as many return to these popular events. TheY act out the plot while guests tuck into a delicious freshly prepared 3 course dinner with choices chosen on the evening itself at the table. See the delicious home cooked menu below for what you would tuck into.

The evening starts around 7 pm with guests sitting down at around 7.30 where upon Mark introduces the team and sets the scene for the evening. The guests then are served courses with a new scene and further story being acted out in the middle of them between the courses. After the food, actors visit the tables for guests, who are now the detectives, to interrogate and question and deduce who the murderer is an why etc. all taken light heartedly of course. The bar is open for drinks too.

If you cant make this first weekend then the next one planned is the Friday 8th March. A lot of guests make an evening of it as to stay over with breakfast for 2 persons and tickets for The Murder Mystery evening is only £125.00 total payable on booking.

Weddings any Size

The wedding trend at the Jersey Farm Hotel hasn't abated as the venue becomes more popular than ever. Brides from all over the North East of England and further are finding our unique quirky hotel.

Last weekend saw our wedding showcase weekend happen where brides ventured out in the snow to see the Barn function suite all set for a wedding and to get ideas for theirs. Tables were dressed with ideas from Lucy at Party On Balloons and event hire and every table different brides had plenty to look and choose from. All the seats with chair covers had different styles of bows on them to give new ideas.

Jersey Farm doesn't only do large weddings in the separate function suite they can tailor smaller packages to organisers needs. This weekend sees a smaller wedding in the Garden suite with leads out onto the terrace at the front of the hotel. This is a more informal gathering with the food being from the famous carvery.

We can do weddings from  a very small number with all food and drinks packages being catered to ones needs.

Spring has sprung, wedding days are here

The lovely weather of late has brought people out to explore the delights of  Barnard Castle and County Durham. We can see our daffodils poking out of the ground ready to bloom and the grass becoming greener in the fields and everything starts to look neater. Just as well really because the first of the 2013 weddings will be soon.

This year has become really popular for weddings for us. Maybe its our very competitive rates or our all inclusive package which includes everything brides need for a perfect day. We also offer chair covers now from Party On balloon and event hire with bows colour coordinated to the brides theme. This has been a great selling point with brides finding they have money left over in their budget because we have everything covered so that they can afford the little extra and different touches to make their day unique. Bands, fireworks, candy carts all spring to mind as brides try to find services that make their day unique.

Jersey Farm has now become one of the most popular wedding and event venues in the area. Bookings for 2014 are going quickly too as more people find our unique, quirky hotel. Our wedding fayre recently attracted the most number of visitors ever. We also have planned a showcase weekend on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 march from 12 till 4pm.

A showcase is where we set the whole function suite for  a wedding as it would be for a wedding, the chairs are covered by Party On and they will put some different table decorations out for people to view. The civil ceremony room is set up too. Brides can view the function room laid out see hotel rooms and facilities and also chat to our Wedding Coordinator Ruth about their special day. So definitely worth a visit on this weekend. The restaurant will be open so you could combine your viewing with something to eat or drink in the bar of the hotel.

During this time the covered chairs are being moved to the main dining tables to finish off the wow factor of The Barn. The centre pieces are reflected by the oversized table mirrors which reflect light and the candlelight of our wrought iron candlesticks. Your wedding cake will be in pride of place in the centre of the top table displayed on one of our many cake stands along with our decorative sword and cake knife.

Joyce and Richard Healey were married today with a civil ceremony at the Bowes Museum, Barnard Castle.

They commented what a magnificent building the museum was and fantastic venue for a wedding. The setting was perfect for photographs with the photographer taking longer than usual becuase there were so many scenes and photo opportunities.

Guests even lingered after the ceremony to browse the museum and also waited to see the unique silver swan pluck the fish from the river
