Full Description
With 20 acres of landscaped gardens and grounds, and luxury accommodation for 28 guests, the award-winning Chaucer Barn makes the perfect year-round private retreat for smaller intimate groups or larger weddings. During the summer, make the most of our National Garden Scheme-approved gardens and in the winter enjoy the cosy romance of our beautiful interiors, stunning views and open log fires. Tailor make your wedding with us. We work closely with an outstanding list of suppliers from caterers to photographers, with no restrictive packages or hidden charges. But if you would prefer to choose your own suppliers, we are really happy to work with you to make plans to suit your style and budget. Because no two weddings are ever the same here, we have a unique wealth of experience. You will therefore find our free-of-charge wedding service enormously helpful. We encourage you to visit the barn as often as you like so that you can get a feel for what will be a blank canvas, you are most welcome to decorate both inside and outside to your own individual style. We try to do everything differently from the rest of the wedding industry in order that your special day is as unique and individual as you are. You don’t have to believe in fairies to get married in the woods but it helps! Venture over the parkland at Chaucer Barn and you will find an enchanted glade tucked into a tiny valley all of it’s own. Surrounded by trees of all shapes and sizes this is the place where many happy couples have chosen to tie the knot. We have recently added 5 Eco-lodges, nestled in the Woodland here. This increases our onsite accommodation to 28.

All in all a dream weekend & a dream wedding.
From the moment my wife saw Chaucer Barn on the website she knew that was going to the be venue. We wanted a venue and accommodation in one as our ideal wedding was more of a long weekend for friends and family. We didn't look anywhere else and both fell in love with it straight away. The staff were so helpful and made everything easy. Local suppliers also amazing. We had Andy Parle as our chef and he and his team were brilliant and the amazing Ross Harvey as our photographer. All in all a dream weekend and dream wedding.

From the moment we saw the barn we knew....
What can we say?! From the moment we saw the barn we knew it was where we wanted to get married - the homely feel was just perfect. It's so beautiful and we were very sad to leave. Thanks for all of the hard work behind the scenes throughout the day.

The most perfect venue
We had our wedding at Chaucer Barn over a weekend in September and it was honestly the most perfect venue. Aside from all the wonderful help we got from Jenna, Emily and the whole team, the grounds and the facilities were absolutely faultless. We had family stay in the woodland lodges and they loved it. The rooms in the barn itself were gorgeous and so comfortable. Chaucer Barn would be perfect for everything from weddings to weekends away with a big family or group of friends. Cannot recommend this place enough!

Beautiful Norfolk venue for an amazing Wedding weekend!
My husband and I got married at Chaucer Barn in July 2019. It is an amazing venue, and just as important it has an absolutely fantastic team behind the scenes that do whatever it takes to make sure your day runs smoothly. The barn is stunning, and all rooms and amenities are of a very high standard so it is a lovely space to have a weekend, we particularly enjoyed being able to have both of our immediate families on site for the whole weekend. The grounds were what really stood out to us when we were venue-hunting.. meadows, fields, wildflowers, a formal lawn, and even space to camp! There is so much versatility and so many beautiful places you can hold a ceremony and different parts of the day. The team were just fabulous, giving excellent advice all the way through the long journey of planning a wedding, and Jenna in particular was an absolute star both in the run up and in being an oasis of calm and making sure everything was just as we wanted it on the day. Having total flexibility over the suppliers we wanted to use was also a real advantage, and meant we could personalise every aspect of the day. We could not recommend the venue and the team more highly!!

Simply the best
We recently held our wedding at the barn and from our first visit and subsequent booking, right through to the day Jenna, James and the team couldn’t do enough for us.. Our wedding was based over 4 days, 3 nights and we utilised the whole site, from a woodland ceremony to an evening Handfasting at the stone circle.. We used all the bedrooms and camp field for our just short of 100 guests and it was just perfect. The venue is just simply stunning, the barn itself is wonderful and has everything you need to be completely self-contained and the gardens are just out of this world… honestly the beauty of the place cannot be done justice with just words.. We arrived on Tuesday lunch Time to be greeted by Jenna (an absolute hero who made everything so simple and easy) and were re-introduced to the barn and then left alone to settle in with the reassurance that she was just around the corner if we needed anything.. Our wedding on the Wednesday went without a hitch, Jenna and the team guided us through the process and dealt with all the suppliers and registrars, leaving us all to just get on and enjoy the day.. The evening Handfasting within the stones went superbly and again words cannot do it justice. The Thursday we all de-camped and headed to Holt to get the Steam train to Sheringham (almost 70 of us) for fish and chips and ice cream on the beach. Thursday night we ordered pizza in and all chilled out within the beautiful grounds all reflecting on how awesome the past few days had been and wishing we didn’t have to leave. A massive thank you to Jenna, James and the whole team who totally got and understood our slightly ‘’left field’’ concept, not even our fire breather raised an eye brow.. Honestly if you are thinking of using the barn.. stop thinking and just book it… you really won’t be disappointed. In a world full of conveyor belt weddings where you struggle to put your own mark on the day the Barn is an oasis for those that want to be different and make their day as personal to them as their own fingerprint. Were already thinking of going back for our 1st anniversary just to do it all again…

FAQ
(10)

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

All our weddings are fabulous! Because we offer a completely bespoke setting, each wedding is so very different. It's always wonderful for us to see what the couples have chosen. Our favourite weddings are always the ones that have the really personal/DIY touches.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Pick the Venue that gives you goosebumps and go from there!

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

We held a humanist ceremony in October and the couple had their best friends stand up and read out the first few text messages that they'd sent each-other from when they were falling in love. It made us laugh and cry in equal measure.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Flexible, luxurious, romantic, in-formal, perfect!

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

There are so many! The Parkland looks amazing in summer with the tall grass-the sunset shots are phenomenal. I also love the Wild Flower Garden for some whimsical romance or the willow archways ...or the topiary. It's too hard to choose!

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

That would be telling.

What’s your favourite canapé?

All of them!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Pizza always goes down well with tired dancers.

What is your venue's most unique feature?

Our beautiful, private, serene, Woodland Ceremony Area.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

The freedom of choice that we give our couples.
