The Barmoor Trustees wish to maximise charitable uses of the house across a range of charitable purposes.
Booking periods are generally allocated by our Bookings Administrator in November for the year following, between applications that have been received, so early application is advised.
Priority will be given to groups which closely match the charitable aim. Alternative dates may be offered for best fit between different groups.
Vacancies that remain after November may be filled if requested later.
Bookings run from 3pm before the first night until 10am after the last night of your booking period, unless otherwise agreed. Weekend bookings can run to 7pm on Sunday.
Day hire of the Harvey Room may be possible during a vacancy.
Rates for booking Barmoor
Groups registered with the charity commission may pay our basic charitable rate which is kept as low as we can. It is expected that the group is sharing living costs and non-profit.
The basic charge covers 15 residents, with an additional amount for numbers above this.
If vacant periods remain once charitable requests have been filled, Barmoor may be available to private or business groups at a commercial rate.
This commercial income is used to subsidise the charitable purpose.
Concessionary commercial rate
Non-profit groups with aims of public benefit but who pay reasonable fees to course providers may claim an intermediate rate as detailed on the booking form.
Any Christmas or New Year booking can expect to pay a special commercial rate.
All bookings pay a generally non-returnable deposit of £200 on confirmation of the booking, and the full basic fee four weeks before their date.
