“Beautiful relaxed wedding venue”
Reviewed October 23, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

My husband and I hired the barn for our wedding back in May. This was the most perfect venue and we fell in love as soon as we saw it. We hired the barn for three nights so that we could have family/friends over for a meal the night before the wedding and then invited everyone back the day after the wedding for a BBQ and some games. This was one of the reasons we chose it as it just meant the celebrations could last that bit longer and it was great that so many guests could stay (18)! We loved the number of places in which you could have your ceremony, and we loved how it felt like you were having your wedding in your home! We had our ceremony on the beautiful lawn and we were so lucky with the weather - it was a gorgeous place to get married. The party/reception was held in the banqueting hall which when you look round might seem strange as it is the dining area but trust me it works! This was one thing a lot of our guests commented that they liked, as it was so relaxed and made them feel really comfortable! It was wonderful how you could bring your own suppliers into the venue as this meant you could really do everything your own way with no restrictions.

Jenna was so amazing in the lead up to the day and on the day itself, so calm and offered great advice. She is a real asset to the team at Chaucer Barn!

Would recommend this venue in a heartbeat for a wedding, and also for a short/long stay as it is so beautiful. The grounds are incredible but the style of the barn is also superb! It is not far from the stunning North Norfolk coast so you can explore if you wish to. We hope to return one day for an anniversary to remember the special day we had here.

“Awesome wedding venue whatever the weather”
Reviewed October 17, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Chaucer barn was the venue for our wedding a few weeks ago. We fell in love with the place after our first visit- the grounds are stunning and the barn is beautifully decorated too. The weather wasn't on our side on the day, so our ceremony was in the banqueting hall instead of the woodland, but in a way I'm so glad it ended up being inside as it felt so intimate in the banqueting hall. We made the max possible use of the barn over the weekend, by having a formal ceremony and meal for family on the first day and then inviting our friends for a big party day on the second day. This worked really well for us and meant that we could stretch out the celebrations!

Jenna and the team at chaucer were amazing! So many other venues we visited had restrictions about what you could do, where and when. At chaucer barn, they helped us turn every idea we had into reality. The set up is the perfect balance of having the flexibility to do almost anything you like to make your day special and unique whilst also having the team there to support you, make sure everything runs smoothly, help coordinate with suppliers, move furniture on the day etc.

We had the best weekend and cannot thank the team at chaucer barn enough!

“Truly Wonderful Wedding Venue”
Reviewed July 31, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Chaucer Barn is set in the most magical rural setting, and is not far from the stunning North Norfolk coastline. We hired the Barn for 3 days for our daughter's and son-in-law's wedding as they fell in love with the grounds and gardens for an outdoor ceremony. The Barn itself is amazing. We would like to thank Jenna and all the staff for making a dream wedding come true. A truly beautiful and wonderful venue. We will be back!

“100% fantastic wedding venue”

My lovely husband and I got married 2 weeks ago and had our reception at Chaucer Barn. We and our friends and family occupied the barn for 3 days and never wanted to leave! What a place!!!! So beautiful inside and out and with great staff that really helped us to make all our wedding wishes come true.
The bedrooms (there are 9) were all beautifully styled and each different to the rest. The gardens are just wow and great for photos (and playing cricket).
We enjoyed Chaucer Barn so much that we're thinking of going back next year for a family weekend.
Thank you James and thank you Jenna:)

“Fantastic Wedding Venue”

We made a list of wedding venues to visit and went to Chaucer Barn first - after seeing the barn we fell in love with it immediately and never made it to the rest! We definitely made the right choice.

The staff at the barn were excellent and helped from initial ideas through to the organisation on the day itself . The possibility of staying the night before and two nights after the wedding made for a very relaxed few days. We had 14 family and friends staying at the barn allowing us to have a meal together the night before the wedding and a brilliant day of outdoor games (while finishing left over wine + prosecco!) the day after.

The flexibility of the venue allows you to put your own ideas into practice so you can go as simple or elaborate as you like, we chose to keep it relatively small so we could fully utilise the barn's internal space for the wedding day. The range of rooms allowed people to relax in the quiet or join the party as they pleased which allowed us to cater for everyone.

Overall it made for a brilliant experience that we will never forget in stunning surroundings; we are already thinking of finding an excuse to book the barn again for a family gathering!

Just came back from an amazing weekend at Chaucer Barns and its was absolutely fantastic, we are definitely going back! the house has all the amenities you need, and they even supplied coal for us to cook our food on the BBQ although it was a bit too cold to eat outside this weekend. We were a 10 min drive to Cromer and the small village of Holt is even nearer, some good pubs in the areas, (short drive away), the local cabbie "Bernie" was kind enough to collect our Indian takeaway for us on Friday night which was lovely, The house is perfect for a large group get away, all the rooms are lovely and the house is spotlessly clean, there is a large Aga for cooking, great sound systems/TV's, perfect location and only 2.5/3 hours away from Essex. we loved it and my friends who came with us haven't stopped talking about. so Chaucer Barn see you again soon and thank you so much for a great weekend.
