We will remember it forever.
I recently got married at The Sancroft Barns - we were the venues first wedding since opening. We booked the venue in December 2021 when the barn was still in the middle of work being completed but we could tell Jeremy and Rachael had amazing ideas and plans for the space, everything came together perfectly! As a 'dry hire' venue we had complete freedom to choose different suppliers and vendors, there was no set list we had to choose from like we had found with other venues. And we had no idea Jeremy and Rachael would go so above and beyond to help ensure the smooth running of the day, I don't think a single thing happened out of time or went even slightly wrong which I'm sure is unheard of with weddings. Jeremy and Rachael have amazing places around the grounds for photo opportunities, we were extremely lucky with the weather having beautiful sunshine and got some amazing sunset shots with their fields and gardens as the back drop - we can't wait to get our full album back to be able to share more with you. Anyone who is considering hiring glamping tents we would definitely recommend, it was so lovely the morning after the wedding waking up with family and friends - we went for breakfast together at The Good The Bad The Hungry which was a lovely place only a 10 minute drive away. We had so many lovely compliments from guests, and we wish you both every luck with the venue for the future. Thank you very much for being the setting for our big day, we will remember it forever and would recommend you to anyone Olivia & Max xx

An exceptional venue
My daughter and now son-in-law recently married here having the wedding ceremony and receptions in the main barn and marquee. Nothing was too much trouble and the day was completely faultless. An exceptional venue, incredible hosts and I cannot recommend Sancroft Barns as a wedding venue more highly.
