behind the scenes


Family is everything at Fence Gate and what better than to have a close knit father and daughter team running the organisation.


Kevin Berkins, a Master Butcher, trained as a butcher in the family business from the age of 14. After leaving the family business at 19 Kevin owned numerous butchers shops in the Burnley & Pendle area. The purchase of Fence Gate in 1982 was a natural progression after suppling the sector for numerous years. The beautiful 18th century property was lovingly extended and modernised over the years. The most recent addition to Fence Gate is Fence Gate Lodge, a luxurious 24 bedroom hotel with an exclusive function room which now completes the guest experience for corporate and leisure guests alike.  Kevin’s attention to detail can be recognised throughout the properties.


Keeley Beaumont (Kevin’s Daughter) completed her Business Management degree at Leeds University.  From university Keeley went to work for a Premier League Football Club and after a number of years took a senior position in corporate sales and sponsorship. After 7 successful years in the world of high flying Premier League football Keeley left to join the family business. Working with her father for the past 15 years as a Director of the Fence Gate they are still as close as ever.
