The village hall has a large main hall and a smaller meeting room. You can hire either room separately, or the whole venue. Both rooms provide light, bright spaces and are air-conditioned.

Wifi is available throughout the building, and we have a music system with speakers.

There is also a reception area between the rooms, a modern kitchen, and toilets (including baby change). The building is fully accessible and has an accessible toilet.

The kitchen is suitable for small parties, afternoon teas, etc., but is not a full catering kitchen. If you are looking for full meals for a large event, the King’s Arms pub and Brantwood Hotel in the village are happy to discuss your needs.

Entrance and reception area


The hall has a large storeroom with space available for regular hirers to store equipment.

Car parking and getting here

The hall car park has space for six cars. As parking is very limited, we do ask people to walk or use public transport when possible and park responsibly.  

Stainton is on the Stagecoach X4/X5 bus route which runs between Penrith and Workington, and there are stops just a 1 minute walk from the Village Hall. (Please note: Buses are disrupted until 18th October 2021 due to roadworks on the A66).
