Family Celebrations at the Earth Trust Centre

Fison Barn

The Earth Trust is based in an amazing location at the base of the Wittenham Clumps in Little Wittenham, South Oxfordshire, and Fison Barn is a stunning venue for large family occasions. The 19th century barn has been beautifully restored, using the original oak beams and local Western Red Cedar cladding. 

Perfect as it is, the barn offers the flexibility to organise the catering, decoration and entertainment as you want.

Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do

Our eco-friendly biomass boiler provides under floor heating during winter for all our buildings. We harvest rain water for our toilets and our solar panels generate greenhouse-free electricity to meet a substantial portion of our electricity requirements.

Surrounded by nature

The large barn doors open onto our tranquil courtyard where bats and swallows have made their homes in the barn eaves, red kites swoop overhead and there are floral displays of herbs and plants attracting butterflies and insects. The courtyard area provides an ideal extension for events in good weather or an area for a marquee (separately hired).

Only 11 miles from Oxford

Nestling at the foot of the Wittenham Clumps nature reserve, Fison Barn is set amidst 700 acres of stunning countryside yet is conveniently located just 11 miles from Oxford and 18 miles from Reading.
