Welcome to the Garrigill Village Hall Website

Here you'll find lots of helpful information about Garrigill and our village hall: places to stay, camping, local facilities and events, bike hire, weather, village news and much more.

After many years of fundraising, 2012 saw Garrigill Village Hall closed for major refurbishment. We now have a fully modernised building, warm, light and welcoming. The Hall enhances village life with a pleasant environment for meeting, interacting and strengthening community ties. From hosting live bands, parties and theatre to film club and supper evenings, the Hall plays host to a multitude of events and is available for private hire, overnight stays and daytime use. We also offer bunkroom and camping facilities as well as electric bike hire.

A big thank you to the Garrigill Estate for your generous donations over the past four years towards the development of the Hall. Your kind support is very much appreciated.
