A friendly village hall for the community run by local volunteers
The first village hall in Countess Wear was built in 1922 by local men returning from the war, after the locally residing Lady Granger kindly gifted the land to the community to be used for such a building. In more recent years, members of the village hall committee and local community put in huge amounts of hard work to fund raise the money needed to build a lovely, new, modern hall (no more having to worry about a tin roof!) and in 2016, the hard work paid off and our current village hall was built.
We're proud to currently offer a wide range of activities, courses and events to the local community and we're able to offer great spaces available for hire.

We regularly hire the hall out for celebrations, classes, courses, meetings, wakes and all sorts of other events so please get in touch via our gmail or postbox. if you have any enquiries, we would be happy to meet and show you around.
There are a number of different spaces available for hire, on the ground floor we have our main hall which is our largest, bright and airy room, there are plenty of tables and chairs if needed and there is also a serving hatch through to the kitchen. The kitchen is suitable for making drinks, washing up and is well stocked to serve premade food from. The ground floor also has ladies, gents and disbaled toilets as well as baby changing facilities and there is a lift up to the first floor.
Upstairs we have two cosier meeting rooms which are carpeted and have tables/chairs available for use as needed. We do also have a television and projector which can be made available for use during your hire, just let us know about your requirements and we'll do our best to meet them.
It makes for a decent music venue for up to around 100 strong audience without too demanding a PA system. Have seen Mick Groves and the Spinners Legends perform at the venue in the past and hope to do so again.

We recently hired Countess Wear Village Hall to host after the funeral of a loved one. The facilities were immaculate, clean and new and the hall worked perfectly as a blank slate to build upon when styling. We'd like to thank those who volunteered and for being so kind and helpful especially when packing down and cleaning on behalf of the family.

Lovely new hall.
This is a really lovely, clean space and the staff are very friendly.
