About Crockwell Farm

Eydon, Nr Daventry, Northampton
Northamptonshire, NN11 3QA

Set against a backdrop of rolling South Northamptonshire countryside, undiscovered lanes and sleepy stone built villages, lies Crockwell. Let your perfect day begin....

Whether you’re planning a small, intimate occasion or a large, lavish affair, Crockwell Farm can be tailored to suit you. The 18th-century oak-beamed vaulted barn and permanent marquees provide you with a personal and flexible space for your big day. Additionally, the award winning B&B accommodation and stunning grounds and gardens make Crockwell Farm the perfect venue.

Our marquees are set up within our farm buildings, providing you with the intimate celebration atmosphere with protection from the unpredictable English weather. The marquees are fully heated and their windows allow stunning views across the open valley. Although the venue is within easy reach of the M40 and M1, you will still feel as though you are in the wonderful isolation of the countryside.

Owned and managed by the Harper family and supported by a dedicated team, Crockwell Farm offers a professional service with a personal approach. Throughout your wedding preparations, the team will work with you to ensure that everything runs smoothly, and their attention to detail guarantees that nothing is forgotten.

As we do not book weddings on consecutive days, you will have ample time to set up your reception space. You can also extend your celebrations a day longer by enjoying a family breakfast at the venue. 

From 2020 we will be partnering with 2018 & 2019 UK Wedding Award Caterers of the Year, Ross and Ross Events, as our sole caterers. We couldn't be happier to have found a caterer local to us that share our ethos and style, and we couldn't be more confident that you will love what they have to offer! With a simple and unfussy approach developed over 7 years catering for weddings, Ross and Ross offer delicious dishes using fresh, local and seasonal ingredients. 

For more information or to arrange a visit, please contact Hermione.  "Seeing is Believing" we would love to show you around Crockwell, allow yourself about an hour and we can do this most weekdays up til 6pm and most weekend mornings, please do book an appointment. Our next Open Evening is on Monday 2nd December from 5.30 til 8.30pm all welcome, if you are thinking of coming we do please ask you to let us know.

Fairytale venue
Venue Service

By Andrea Thomas, on 16 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 22 Aug 2019

Honestly cannot recommend Crockwell Farm enough. The venue and surrounding area is just beautiful. The exclusive use for 3 days is excellent and really does help make everything alot easier and more relaxed! Everyone has commented on how beautiful our wedding was, and that is mainly down to the venue. The whole team at Crockwell are just the best, they go above and beyond to help you in the lead up to the wedding and on the day are just faultless. Our day couldn't have been more perfect or run smoother. I'm going to have to come to Open Days just so I can relive the day and see everyone again! Thank you for making our dream wedding a reality.

Rosie Boniface , Events Co-ordinator at Crockwell Farm responded to this review on 20/09/2019 09:22:15

Thank you Andrea! It is so lovely hearing what a wonderful day you had, I am so glad that we could help make your dream day come to life! Best wishes to you and Kevin for a fantastic future together.

Amazing venue!
Venue Service

By Charmaine & Nithin, on 06 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 03 Aug 2019

We got married at Crockwell Farm on 3/8/19. It was only the second venue we visited but we immediately fell in love with it! The whole place is incredibly beautiful, from the wheat fields to the draped marquee and of course the amazing bridal suite. The day itself was superb and ran smoothly from start to finish, thanks in no small part to our amazing co-ordinator Laura (who also left us some much appreciated midnight snacks for when we were done partying!). A lot of our guests said it was one of the best weddings they had every been to- cannot recommend Crockwell Farm highly enough! C&N

Rosie Boniface , Wedding Planner at Crockwell Farm responded to this review on 11/09/2019 12:44:21

Thank you so much for your lovely review Charmaine & Nithin, it was a pleasure to host your special day. Charmaine you looked so beautiful and we have loved looking through your stunning photos. All the very best from us all at Crockwell.

Just Amazing
Venue Service

By Dave and Emma, on 22 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 01 Aug 2019

What can I say other than if you are looking for a venue that is beautiful and the service even better then look no further and go and see for yourselves. We got married here on 1st August and everything was perfect. Being able to have the venue from 2pm the day before is amazing and takes a lot of stress away. Fiona was brilliant throughout and made sure we had everything we needed and took away a lot of the stresses of a wedding day meaning we could concentrate on having a good time! Even from when we booked, Rosie was superb and did everything we asked and nothing was too much trouble. The owners were lovely and made sure we had everything we needed even the day after. Even letting us use their office to fix last minute changes due to our mistakes with table plans! Even that was not too much trouble for you. All our guests loved the venue and commented on what a great day they had, some even recommending to others already. You made our day perfect and we are gutted it is all over. You were a pleasure to deal with and made our day so special.

Hermione Harper, Owner at Crockwell Farm responded to this review on 29/08/2019 16:06:46

Thank you Emma & Dave, we are so glad you were able to have the wedding you dreamed of. We love that our couples can come the day before to set up all of their decorations, so useful for everyone! We hope your pictures tell a wonderful story of a beautiful day and you enjoy reliving them. All the very best.

By Ben Alders, on 04 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 27 Jul 2019

just now Where to start with Crockwell Farm. We got married there on the 27th July 2019, and honestly the venue and all the staff made all our dreams come true. From the build up to the day through to final goodbyes, we couldn't have asked for more and we really would recommend the venue to everyone. A special mention to Fiona who organised the day. She was kind, helpful and made us feel at ease and we really are grateful for her work. 5 stars is not enough!!

Harriet Thame , Marketing at Crockwell Farm responded to this review on 29/08/2019 16:04:16

Thank you for your fantastic review Ben, so pleased to know what a wonderful day you had. All the best to you and Amara for the future.

The most incredible venue
Venue Service

By Sarah Young, on 06 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 27 Jun 2019

I cannot recommend Crockwell Farm highly enough. From first visit on their open evening, to our wedding day and beyond, the team at Crockwell have been outstanding. The venue itself is idyllic - gorgeous countryside setting, stunning gardens and orchard for outdoor weddings, indoor barn (which took away all our weather worries as an equally beautiful alternative ceremony space in case of rain!), beautiful 'indoor' marquee with a hidden dance floor, and gorgeous bedrooms! The wonderful team at Crockwell go above and beyond, with excellent communications right through the wedding build up, and they really do everything to look after you and make your day perfect. It feels so personalised, as if you are the only ones to ever get married there. We loved having the venue for the afternoon before right up until the lunchtime of the day after - it made all the difference as the big day itself goes by so fast. And Hermione's breakfast was incredible! We had Laura as our wedding coordinator who was exceptional, with so many extra touches that we will remember forever. So many of our guests commented on how fantastic the venue is. Crockwell will forever have a special place in our hearts - book this venue immediately, you will be in the safest of hands!!

Harriet Thame, Marketing Manager at Crockwell Farm responded to this review on 11/11/2019 15:00:02

This is such a lovely review Sarah, thank you! It was a pleasure to host your big day and we are so glad that it will hold special memories forever. Best wishes from us all.

The perfect venue for the most perfect day!
Venue Service

By James and Robyn Burr, on 11 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 01 Jun 2019

From the moment we first visited Crockwell farm, we instantly knew it was the place for us. From the open days, the food tasting and of course the wedding, everything was incredibly well managed and the attention to detail for every aspect of the wedding was outstanding. Hermione and her talented team, including Mel our wedding co-ordinator could not have done anymore than they did. They were on hand every step of the way and ensured that everything went smoothly without a single hitch which allowed us to make the most of our amazing day. Additionally, the accommodation was beautiful and was loved by all those who attended and stayed over. The honeymoon suite especially was stunning. For anyone whose considering venues, Crockwell Farm is a must not just because of how beautiful it is, but mainly down to the incredible team behind the scenes. We cannot recommend them enough, and I want to personally thank them for giving us the happiest and best day of our lives.

Hermione Harper, Owner at Crockwell Farm responded to this review on 11/09/2019 12:46:41

Robyn & James, you were always a pleasure to deal with and I am so glad that you had the happiest and best day of your lives. Your video is stunning and we have loved watching it. Thank you so much for your lovely words about Crockwell and our team, we are very lucky to have such a great team here and we are so happy that you think so too! Best wishes for your future together.

Amazing Venue
Venue Service

By Lauren and Simon Gayton, on 10 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 27 May 2019

Where to start? From start to finish the service was first class. We first visited here in August 2017 and knew from the moment we stepped in, this was where we wanted to get married. Hermione and her team made us feel welcome and answered any questions we had, also giving us a brochure about getting married in Northamptonshire (which none of the other venues had done). They then held open evenings and afternoons where you could take family and friends to have a look at the venue and they even let us visit on a Sunday afternoon with my parents, nothing ever seemed too much to ask. Someone was always available to talk to us either on the phone or via email and we were always made to feel important. The taster evening was fantastic; we were able to taste a range of food and choose the wine. When it came to our wedding day Laura was on hand from the minute we got there to the minute we left (she is absolutely AMAZING), she took all stress away from us and our day ran like clockwork. It is great that you can arrive at the venue the day before and set up the venue if you wish and then it was lovely to be able to have breakfast with all the guests the morning after, it makes it feel more like a wedding weekend than a wedding day. Within the venue there is lots of space, so no need to worry about our ever changing British weather, it also means your guests have lots of space to sit and relax or enjoy the fabulous dance floor. The venue is beautiful, the food was gorgeous and the staff are excellent.

Amy Cox, Owner at Crockwell Farm responded to this review on 11/06/2019 14:09:00

Dear Lauren & Simon, Thank you very much for your kind review it means a lot to the whole team to know that the day went smoothly and that you enjoyed the whole process. We love being able to welcome couples and their families at our Open Evenings and it's good to know they are a useful tool. Best wishes from all at Crockwell.

Dream Wedding Venue
Venue Service

By Guenevere and Mark, on 23 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 25 Apr 2019

Amazing venue, and staff were fantastic. Laura was especially amazing, great wedding coordinator, went above and beyond. Beautiful barn for the ceremony, and marquee is beautifully lit, with lovely views across the Northamptonshire countryside.

Amy Cox, Owner at Crockwell Farm responded to this review on 24/06/2019 12:27:30

Thank you very much for your review Guenevere, we loved hosting your wedding to Mark it was a beautiful celebration.

Amazing!
Venue Service

By Rebecca and Seyi Otukoya, on 06 May 2019Date of Wedding - 06 Apr 2019

Well what can I say! The amazing Crockwell Farm! From the moment my mum and I got there I knew this was our wedding venue. The onsite accommodation, and the now refurbished honeymoon cottage! The bar area, the vaulted barn, the massive marquee, secluded dance floor, outside pavilion. This place has it all! I knew I had to get my fiance to look and we booked a visit again ASAP. We booked our wedding date that same day. ALL of the staff and I mean ALL from Rosie, Laura, Hermionie and all the bar staff Barnaby. Alison and Chloe. Everyone from Chopping Block, Karen and all of her staff are absolutely amazing and made or day run so smoothly. The process is so organised and professional, they really take the time and go through your day. I felt so confident and secure that they all and especially Laura who ran our day ( the best of the best) would go according to plan and I can not fault one thing. It was the most amazing day! Chopping block food was amazing and everyone was so warm and welcoming. I honestly can not thank everyone enough and I can not recommend Crockwell Farm enough. It truly is a magical place, the breakfast was 10/10. The relaxed atmosphere of just having the bridal party there whilst the boys got ready at the cottage. Having the place for 3 days, in the middle of nowhere surrounded by your loved ones and rolling hills was like being on holiday! You guys are absolutely amazing and I am so grateful and glad we had our wedding here. Thank you! Thank you! Mr and Mrs Otukoya

Harriet, Marketing Manager at Crockwell Farm responded to this review on 09/05/2019 16:15:37

Congratulations again Mr and Mrs Otukoya and thank you so much your lovely review. It is very kind of you to find the time and to write such great stuff about Crockwell and our team, we really appreciate it. Best wishes to you both.

Simply amazing.

By Laura Grant, on 07 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 21 Mar 2019

We held our wedding at Crockwell Farm back in March and it was the most perfect day. Everything about the venue was what we wanted and the team at Crockwell just couldn’t do enough for us especially Laura our wedding planner who was there on our big day! She was simply outstanding, there really are no words to say how fab she was, everyone commented on how brilliantly she ran everything and how helpful she was. She made us all feel so relaxed as we all knew she had everything under control. It really is a fabulous place and the whole team there do a brilliant job, can’t recommend it enough as a wedding venue! The facility has so much space so even if you don’t get the weather you’ll be absolutely fine. Would do it all again tomorrow!

Amy Cox, Owner at Crockwell Farm responded to this review on 10/06/2019 11:03:39

Thank you so much Laura for your lovely review. We loved hosting you and Steve for your wedding and are so glad you had an enjoyable and relaxing day. I have passed your thanks on to Laura who also really enjoyed running your wedding. Best wishes from all of the Crockwell team.

Our memorable Winter Wedding.
Venue Service

By Jodie & Gus Beteli, on 06 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 27 Dec 2018

We first visited Crockwell Farm a few days after our engagement with it being the first venue we visited off of our long list!! Within 24 hours of visiting we had chosen a date and paid the deposit! We never thought that it would be that easy, but it was! After meeting Hermione and the team at Crockwell we knew that this was the team we wanted to help organise and run our special day, so we didn't even look at other venues. We have had a 1st class service from Crockwell, they're extremely helpful, approachable and really do make your wedding day feel like the most important day ever. A stress free experience and even running up to the day they had made contact with all of our suppliers to finalise the plans on our behalf. It is such a beautiful and unique venue with all of the different spaces that it has to offer, meaning that you can really tailor your day and make it like no other. A particular selling point for us was the big space by the bar and the secret dance floor that was revealed later in the evening! We loved the fact that we had the venue across three days, this allowed for a very relaxed set up which we were able to enjoy with friends and family as the excitement for the big day approached. All of the accommodation was fabulous and the breakfasts each day were 10/10. Having so many rooms on site meant that the morning after the wedding we were able to enjoy a feast of a breakfast with loved ones and share stories from the night before. We wish we could do it all over again! We would recommend this venue to anyone and everyone.

Rosie Haigh, Wedding Planner at Crockwell Farm responded to this review on 07/01/2019 16:35:50

Jodie & Gus, thank you for taking the time to leave such a wonderful review. You were a pleasure throughout the process and we are so glad you chose us to hold your stunning wedding. Everything looked beautiful, we can't wait to see more of the photos. Best of luck to the three of you from everyone at Crockwell.

Sizer and Pepper wedding
Venue Service

By Carly and Chris Sizer, on 29 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 26 Jul 2018

What an amazing day we had. Could not have asked for a better setting with better weather. We got married outside which was our dream and the weather made it perfect. From the moment we arrived until we left the Crockwell team were hands on in making everything run smoothly. I felt very relaxed and able to enjoy my day to the fullest. We were living in Thailand for the entire build of our wedding which didn’t phase Crockwell at all. They all understood our situation and helped us along where needed. We had our planning meeting a year in advance and were able to communicate via email throughout the year. Laura deserves a medal for all the hard work she does. What a trooper and very dedicated member of the team who is there for you no matter what your need. Thanks team. You made our day magical.

Rosie Haigh, Wedding Planner at Crockwell Farm responded to this review on 31/07/2018 13:19:07

We are so glad that you managed to hold your dream wedding outside, it was magical. Best of luck for the future Mr & Mrs Sizer!
