Facilities at St Endellion
The St Endellion site also offers opportunities for meetings, workshop activities, and overnight self-catering accommodation for short breaks or retreats. The meeting room in the Stone Barn is an excellent space for business meetings, workshops or away days for groups of up to 15 people. It is accessible for wheelchair users and has a kitchen facility. Upstairs there is basic sleeping accommodation, suitable, for example, for groups of young people. (One room with accessible facilities downstairs.) Glebe Farm offers further self-catering holiday accommodation (sleeps 9) and can be hired with or without the Stone Barn. The St Endellion Hall has recently been transformed to a modern multi-functional facility, accommodating a wide range of users. The main space has a beautiful outlook at the back through wide glass doors, a kitchen facility and modern facilities, and is suitable for small functions, workshops or exercise groups.

The Stone Barn
Stylishly converted from the tumbledown farm building originally in this corner of the site, the Stone Barn offers generous, hostel-style accommodation in two dormitories. There are six bunk beds in one dormitory and ten in the other, each pair having its own wardrobe and measure of privacy.
The dormitories have fitted worktops which can serve either as dressing tables or desks. Both are generously lit by skylights and the North one also enjoys a magnificent view across the fields to the sea and the Tintagel headland. There is a WC on the landing between the two. Four shower rooms (one wheelchair-accessible) and a bathroom are situated downstairs, along with a further, wheelchair accessible double bedroom with its own ramped access from outside.
The downstairs common room, with its kitchen, dining table and leather sofas, enjoys access to a terrace with outside seating. The common room may be rented independently of the rest of the building for rehearsals, meetings or courses.
The Glebe Farmhouse
With a kitchen adapted to the needs of the St Endellion music festivals, Glebe Farmhouse sleeps nine people but has the capacity to feed considerably more!
There are four twin bedded rooms and one single room. There is a bathroom and shower room upstairs and a further shower room downstairs. There are in effect two sitting rooms, one of which gives onto a dining room.
A sunny, glazed porch admits visitors to a garden well equipped with tables and chairs. The well equipped kitchen may either be used as a kitchen/dining room for groups using only the farmhouse or rearranged to provide more industrial catering and serving arrangements for larger parties accommodated across the way in the Stone Barn or camping.
The glorious Collegiate Church of St Endelienta lies at the site’s heart and without it, none of this project would exist.
John Betjeman thought that St Endellion was always praying even when no one was inside the building; certainly it has an atmosphere to which believers and non-believers alike respond. The exposed wooden vaulting, like a trio of great upturned boats, draws the eye, and the use throughout of clear glass means that the space seems full of light in even the dreariest weather. It also benefits from a peculiarly clear acoustic, ideal for spoken word events and for concerts, however intimate.
Major restoration work in the 1930s gave the church its present openness and lightness. The old pews were made good and furnished with contemporary carvings and the roof angels added to and dedicated.
A wide range of rostra is available to enhance performances in this lovely building. These range from simple wooden platforms to raise the height of individual performers, to a professional set of chamber music staging ideal for improving sightlines for performances by a string quartet or similiarly sized ensemble, through to a complex of staging to accommodate a chorus of 75 and a symphony orchestra. If you think your group might need to book any of these, please tell us of your needs when you place your booking enquiry.
Similarly, please let us know if your group might like to contribute to a special church service as part of its Endelienta visit.
