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.
We got married at Chaucer Barn in April 2012 and couldn't resist the chance to return to celebrate my 40th birthday this weekend. We absolutely love the place and it’s a perfect venue to celebrate anything. It was a little chilly this weekend but we were able to light the pre-made fires and get cosy. The staff are always friendly, they left us some treats and some lovely fresh flowers as a finishing touch. We also really enjoyed the large grounds and were able to run the dog and children around to tire them out! Thank you Chaucer Barn.
I booked Chaucer Barn for my husband's 50th birthday weekend away with a gang of family and friends. I am reluctant to give it the glowing review it so deserves as I want to keep it all to myself! This really is a very special place, beautiful in every detail, extremely comfortable, warm and cozy despite being also very spacious. We had the most perfect weekend there we'll never forget!
Was here with friends to celebrate New Year. The barn suited our large group of adults and young kids perfectly, providing comfortable rooms and great communal spaces. A lovely place in beautiful surroundings in a wonderful location.
We had a lovely family weekend, four generations to celebrate our mums 80th Birthday. When we arrived, the weekend before Xmas, the Barn was beautifully decorated. The entire Barn and grounds are simply stunning and spotlessly clean.
It really is a magical place and will be in our memories for ever.
A big thank you to all of the Chaucer team who from beginning to end were most helpful.
We would not hesitate to recommend.
This was an idyllic place for our wedding. Beautiful surroundings, rooms and facilities as well as the people making the arrangements being so helpful. Everything went perfectly.
