Full Description
With 20 acres of RHS award winning 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 Royal Horticultural Society award winning 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. If you would prefer to choose your own suppliers, we are 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.

Perfect venue
We got married in this stunning venue in March. This was the first and only venue we looked at. I fell in love with it straight away. The grounds are beautiful and the barn itself is perfect. Everything we needed and so much more. Tessa and the rest of the staff were so helpful throughout, especially on the wedding day itself. We didn't have to worry about a thing. The venue was perfect in everyway. We had the most wonderful, stress free wedding. We would highly recommend this venue for a wedding.

A home away from home.
We postponed our wedding reception at Chaucer from last October to just a couple of weeks ago. We still got married last year and had the party this year. We fell in love with Chaucer as soon as we visited and we are so glad we went ahead to have our postponed wedding party come anniversary this year. It is just such a magical place and we had the most wonderful day and weekend there celebrating with our friends and family. Tessa was amazing in the run up and on the day as well to ensure things ran smoothly. If you want a blank canvas venue to make your own this is the one for you - a home away home!

Full of charm and WOW factor!
Having had two postponed wedding dates, we FINALLY got to have our BEST DAY EVER at Chaucer Barn last weekend! It truly is a fantastic venue. Photos really don't do it justice - you have to BE THERE to feel that home from home vibe that can be further achieved by adding your own personal touches around the place. Tessa was brilliant. She was always quick to answer any queries and re-assure us throughout all the uncertainties - and was particularly helpful during set-up when a few unexpected issues arose! The weather was kind enough for us to hold the ceremony outside, which was a bonus as the grounds are spectacular! However, we had LOTS of twinkly lights (and hearts!) up inside - just in case! It truly is a wonderful place - full of charm with a definite WOW factor.

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.

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 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, informal, stunning!

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

The topiary pyramids are unique in the gardening world and a huge draw for photographs. 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. Our blank canvas policy means that you have a huge selection of street food vendors available to choose from.

What is your venue's most unique feature?

A three minute walk through our parkland, lies our, serene Woodland Ceremony grove. Deep in nature, it is pure fairytale magic and the most popular place in all of our 20 acres for our couples to tie the knot!

What part of your business are you most proud of?

We are very proud of the freedom of choice that we give our couples. However, our greatest feature must surely be the 20 acres of award-winning gardens and Parkland surrounding Chaucer Barn.
