Luxury wedding venue plans unveiled by Burley Browne

Commercial | 14.09.2023

Plans to transform a former antiques centre into an exciting new luxury wedding venue in the West Midlands have been unveiled today by property consultants Burley Browne.

Blackbrook Barns, prominently located between Lichfield and Sutton Coldfield, is set to be re-imagined by its new owners as a high-class wedding venue set within beautiful rural surroundings against the backdrop of a Grade-II listed hall and outbuildings.

The unique venue will be able to accommodate wedding ceremonies and all the subsequent celebrations. The development will also boast eight retail units which are ideally suited to retailers and businesses associated with the wedding and wider hospitality sectors.

David Hemming, Joint Managing Director of Burley Browne, who has been instructed to let the available retail units, said: “The redevelopment of Blackbrook Barns offers some really exciting opportunities for retailers operating in the weddings sector. Our client will transform the current site into a fantastic new luxury wedding venue which will be surrounded by high quality shops that will complement it. It will provide couples in the region with superb new facilities in an extremely convenient location.”

Six of the retail units available to lease will overlook the internal courtyard with the remaining two - a coffee shop and larger retail showroom - arranged over ground and first floor at the entrance to the venue. All units will be open to the general public through the year but are considered ideally suited to retailers and businesses that can complement the venue and hospitality sector. 

The units range in size from 410 sq ft to 2,100 sq ft. Further office pods are also being planned for a later phase of the scheme with an anticipated opening date of Spring 2024. 

On the same site is Blackbrook Hall which has recently been transformed into flexible workspace. The hall now has 11 local businesses in its 12 office suites after undergoing an extensive programme of refurbishment. The suites are let on all-inclusive packages.

The site is situated fronting the main A38, a short distance from Weeford Island. It has excellent links to the M6 Toll Roads, M42, A5, A453 and A446, providing access to the wider West Midlands, South Staffordshire and Warwickshire areas.
