“Dream wedding ”
Reviewed August 17, 2018 for a stay in July 2018

Where do we begin? From the moment we looked around Chaucer Barn, we knew we were in for a treat! Hosting our Wedding in the most beautiful venue in North Norfolk was an absolute privileged! The grounds are the most stunning I have ever seen, carefully looked after by a truly amazing team, they should be so very proud of their efforts in maintaining such beauty! Not an easy job during this scorcher of a summer! Andrew was an absolute superstar, going the extra mile to help us with tools and set up, a really lovely guy whose energy was a real delight to be around, someone we would love to meet again and share our gratitude with, there were things Andrew did, from the kindness of his heart that were not part of his job description! What a man! For those of you who are thinking of booking your wedding at Chaucer Barn, you will not be disappointing, as Jenna is the most amazing organiser we have ever met, and we are pretty organised people ourselves! Remember, not every venue will have someone as decicted, kind, thoughtful and so dam on it as Jenna is. Jenna was our very own wonder woman, her professionalism, attention to detail, patience, and calm influence made our wedding the most perfect day! No job was too big and she always did her upmost to support us not just on the day of our wedding but leading up to it. She was always, and I mean always on the end phone, message, email to help with the organisation of things.The day would not have been the most perfect day of our lives if it wasn't for Jenna and the very, very hard working team at Chaucer Barn. We had a live band at the wedding and the team at Chaucer Barn supported with the set up and I have to say, the band were amazing and had no trouble with their sound equipment and never, ever did the music cut out and it was plenty loud enough. Any louder and you would have had a cracking headache. We danced the night away to our hearts content and the band were very happy with the way things were run. The barn itself is perfect, the team work so hard to keep it pristine which can't be easy after a very fast turn around, but they do it and you know it is all done with love! We wish we could have stayed longer and our hope is to return in the future for a family holiday and reminisce on the best day of our life, helped by the most gorgeous souls who work at Chaucer Barn. Thank you from the very bottom of our hearts. You guys are amazing!!!! With all our love and best wishes, Noel and Jade xxx

Dreams turned into reality for the wedding of our son and daughter in law. The staff were outstanding and were always on hand to make sure everything went smoothly and to plan, nothing was too much trouble for them. The barn was ideal in every way location, facilities, gardens, rooms and surrounding landscape. Even the weather played it's part. We can not recommend this place strongly enough.

“Phenomenal place for a wedding or special stay”
Reviewed June 17, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

I have never written a Tripadvisor review before but I am making the time for this one!! Chaucer Barn is INCREDIBLE! My husband and I just got married there and we can't believe that we were so lucky to have got married in such a beautiful place- we are so unbelievably glad that we found Chaucer Barn! You can style your wedding however you like there, of whatever size, and we loved that about it. It is also such an amazing venue- the house inside is gorgeous, spacious and unique- with 9 bedrooms styled beautifully different. And the gardens are just WOW...you only have to look at the photos of weddings there. You can get married in lots of different places around the grounds too.
I would also like to say that Jenna and the CB team there are absolutely fantastic- working so hard behind the scenes making sure everything runs so smoothly and the gardens are perfect. Our wedding just ran with ease and it's all thanks to Jenna and the CB team supporting us before our wedding as well as during the wedding day. If you are looking for a special place to get married in or for a special place to have a few nights away with friends and family, honestly look no further than Chaucer Barn- there's a reason why it is the 6th best wedding venue according to the Independent Newspaper! Although in our opinion it should be the 1st! Thank you so much CB!

“One word...OUTSTANDING!”
Reviewed December 16, 2017 for a stay in December 2017

Chaucer Barn made our dreams of an intimate winter wedding come true and certainly exceeded all expectations. The staff are fantastic and so friendly. They helped so much to ensure our day went smoothly for us. It's an outstanding venue both in the summer with its blooms of colour and in the winter where you can take advantage of the roaring fire places while you're surrounded by crisp autumnal colours and glistening frosts. We had luck on our side for weather too so could take full advantage of having our photos taken within the lovely grounds. It was an added bonus to have the beautifully decorated rooms for our family to stay with us which made the weekend all the more memorable. Just perfect!

“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!
