“ The words jaw-droppingly beautiful do not do it justice ”
Chaucer Barn is one of the most prestigious wedding venues in the country, ranked as the UK’s sixth best wedding venue by The Independent newspaper. Yet with accommodation for 18 included, it’s value for money is unrivalled.
Our aim is to get as far away from the wedding industry’s ‘one size fits all’ wedding as possible.
We invite you to visit as often as you like while planning your wedding. Feel free to decorate the barn or garden and grounds yourselves. Whatever inspires you to give Chaucer Barn a sense of your own personality.
The idea is to do away with the ‘conveyor-belt wedding’, giving you a blank canvas on which to stamp your own individuality. No two weddings here are ever the same.
There are no hidden tie-up’s with suppliers, no fixed menu, wine list or corkage and no fixed wedding program. It’s your wedding to plan the way you wish. We give you the flexibility you need to create the atmosphere most suited to your taste, while helping you plan and supporting you all the way.
Chaucer Barn itself, is an award winning conversion. Filled with furniture and textiles from around the globe; from the cathedral like space of the main hall to the contemporary chic of the pink sitting room, the tone of Chaucer Barn is one of stylish informality.
The stunning 4 acre garden is surrounded by 16 acres of rolling parkland. Whether you stand at the end of the topiary pyramid forest and gaze down the oak avenue toward the twenty acre wood or stroll from the living willow arch through the wild flower meadow, your only problem will be choosing where to spend your important moments! Will it be a woodland wedding? And on which of the various lawns might you want to hold your reception?
The concept is to move in and host that perfect country house weekend, spending real quality time with your favourite people. You get the entire property to yourself for you and your guests to enjoy for the whole of your stay.
