The Barn

PENDLE HILL DURING COVID-19. Due to continued public health concerns, the Pendle Hill campus will be closed to conference groups until the virus is contained, and at least through March 1, 2021. We will announce our opening date on our website and e-newsletter at least two months prior to welcoming visitors. Until we know our opening date, we will not be able to accept any new Conference Service reservations for dates during this time period. If you are interested in dates after September 1, 2021 or have any questions about Conference Services at Pendle Hill, please send them to and the Conference Sales Coordinator will respond in due course. Groups with existing reservations scheduled through at least March 1, 2021 will be contacted directly by the Conference Sales Coordinator about this decision. Thank you for your patience and understanding in these times.
