Sizer and Pepper wedding
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.
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!

Firstly, the team at Crockwell are truly amazing - the most professional, organised and fun people to have running your wedding. We can't thank them enough for how much time and effort they put in to helping us plan our big day. We'd like to especially thank Laura who made the day run so smoothly and was always there when we needed her! Crockwell was such a perfect fit for us because of the accommodation on site and getting the venue for the entire weekend. This made it much more like a weekend away for all of our family and friends who stayed with us and lets you settle in to the wedding before the big day - something we were so grateful for as they day just whizzes past! Crockwell and The Chopping Block also hosted an amazing taster evening 6 months before our wedding so we could make informed choices about what we wanted on the day. This evening was also really useful to experience the venue at its best so you could get a really good idea of how to decorate it. We opted for an outdoor ceremony but you can actually get married in three different locations at the venue - all equally gorgeous! The orchard was just perfect for us and felt so tranquil and intimate. The weather was a bit touch and go but as I mentioned, Laura had it in hand! So I didn't feel at all worried about the back up plan. Our day was so perfect from start to finish and Crockwell deserve so much credit for the work they put into ensuring this. Thank you!
Bex & Dan! Thank you for such an amazing review, lovely to hear that the whole process was so enjoyable. Laura is a gem and we are so lucky to have her as part of our team. Your day looked fantastic, dress, flowers, decoration the lot and we LOVE the mini film. Best of luck with everything from all at Crockwell.

When we first saw Crockwell Farm 2 years ago we knew this was the venue for us, the place is gorgeous and everyone was so welcoming. We had the venue all to ourselves from Friday through to Sunday, which really allows you time to get everything organised and set up.
We got married on Saturday 3rd March when the beast from the east was here but this didn’t hinder anyone at Crockwell, they went above and beyond to make sure our day went ahead as planned. The team were absolutely fantastic, with a special thank you to Laura, who made our day run so smoothly.
Chopping Block who catered for our wedding, was outstanding with so many compliments from our guests on not only the taste but presentation as well.
The honeymoon cottage was spectacular, along with the rest of the accommodation which allowed our friends and family to stay with us. Not only does the venue offer you space but also gives you picturesque views, for us with the added snow it really gave us a white wedding to remember.
We couldn’t recommend Crockwell Farm more highly. Thank you all for making our day perfect.
Thank you Hannah & Luke! We are so glad you enjoyed your special day and wish you all the best for a fantastic future together.
The wedding of Darcy and Jake.
By Andy Hall, father of the bride., on 09 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 01 Jul 2017
What a fantastic wedding venue!!!!
So glad that my daughter Darcy and now son in law Jake, chose Crockwell Farm for their wedding. We all had such a wonderful time.
All the staff were amazing and professional, they could not do enough for us, especially Laura, the wedding planner, who managed the whole day to perfection!
Thank you Andy for your very kind review! Laura is a gem and we are very lucky to have her working with us here at Crockwell. Darcy looked beautiful, we are looking forward to seeing their wedding pictures. We hope they are having a fab honeymoon!

Crockwell Farm is an absolute dream come true venue! Every single minor detail is so well thought out and well planned for! From the day we came to visit and look round to the day after the wedding, the staff were exceptionally helpful.
The venue itself is absolutely beautiful and is so well looked after... It's spacious, fun and for us magical. The grounds and the exclusive use really made our day and our guests were over the moon with it. People honestly said it was the most amazing venue they'd ever been to!
The staff are also incredible, they work so hard and made our dream a reality and really understood our vision! Nothing was too much trouble and a special thank you to Rosie and Laura for ensuring everything ran as we dreamed!
Crockwell and it's staff are the best out there! Thank you for everything. x
Sammy & Matt, you guys were an absolute pleasure to be around, we loved having you here. Thank you very much for your extremely kind words. Come back and see us for an anniversary, we would love to see you again.
Dream wedding at a perfect venue
By Amanda and Dave Markie, on 21 May 2017Date of Wedding - 13 May 2017
Crockwell was our number one venue from the start, we had a list of 20 positives and no negatives. From the minute we pulled up at the viewing we were sold, we didn't look at another venue. From then on there was constant communication, a brilliant taster evening for us to bring our parents and helpful staff at every stage.
Due to the exclusive use as were able to set up from 2pm on the Friday which meant it was relaxing and fun (apart from getting the wrong table names for two tables!). The accommodation on site is wonderful, the amenities are excellent and comfortable. The most important part is the view, just beautiful to wake up to.
The day itself went without a hitch due to the amazing staff. Laura, who ran our wedding is an incredible ball of energy and there whenever you need her. Rosie, who first showed us round, kept in contact throughout and was a fantastic help. Hermione and Bay were kind, generous and welcoming at all stages, they truly have a gem of a venue.
The chopping block were amazing, their food is incredible, we couldn't have asked for a more perfect selection. The wait staff and bar staff were so attentive and thoughtful, and patient....sorry to the wonderful staff who we kept from going to bed because we were having so much fun.
We will never forget our day, we are so happy to have such wonderful memories in a perfect location. Getting married in the Vaulted Hall is a dream come true for me (us).
We will come back for a visit to stay at Crockwell as a B&B guest, it is an important place for us and our families.
Amanda & Dave, you were a delight from the beginning and we loved having you spend your wedding weekend with us. Thank you so much for your fantastic comments, we are so glad you had such a memorable weekend. Please do come back and stay, we would love to see you. Best wishes from us all here at Crockwell.
The best day of our lives at the best venue!
By Mark and Rachel Grundy, on 14 May 2017Date of Wedding - 29 Apr 2017
My husband Mark and I were married at Crockwell Farm on 29th April 2017. Crockwell Farm was the first venue we visited when we started our wedding planning and we fell in love with it straight away - we loved it so much we didn’t even consider looking at any others!
I cannot put into words how fantastic the team at Crockwell Farm are. Hermione and the team all go above and beyond to ensure everything on your special day runs like a dream and cannot do enough to ensure it’s perfect for you. They host wedding after wedding yet I still felt like the most important bride. From booking our initial date to finalising details a few weeks before, the team's communication was always spot on.
Another thing we loved about Crockwell Farm is that they don’t run weddings on consecutive days, giving you the opportunity to see your wedding plans all come together, setting up your decorations and finishing touches. They are there to give you a hand if you like but are completely unobtrusive and are very relaxed in letting you make the space your own.
We must also make a special mention to The Chopping Block (Crockwell Farms chosen caterers) as the food was absolutely fantastic - one of our guests said it was the best wedding food she had ever eaten! There was so much choice and Sarah and the team made sure all the details were arranged so on the day everything ran smoothly.
We had the most special day of our lives and would highly recommend Crockwell Farm to absolutely anyone. Attending one of the Open Evenings just gives you a glimpse into how spectacular Crockwell really is, and to see all of the hidden, special gems.
Mr & Mrs Grundy, thank you very much for your lovely review. We are so glad that your day was so special and your whole experience not just your day was so great. We have passed on your kind words to Chopping Block who we are very proud to have on board. Rachel you looked stunning, please send us some pictures when you have them, we would love to share them on our website. Best wishes for a fantastic future together, the Crockwell team.
Truly the best day of our lives!
By Becca and Dan Warren, on 22 May 2017Date of Wedding - 22 Apr 2017
I cannot recommend Crockwell enough to future brides and grooms. I had heard good things about the venue from friends even before I met my husband so I always knew this is where I would get married.
This feeling was confirmed the day we viewed Crockwell. We had only looked at one other venue but as soon as we pulled into the driveway leading up to the house we both knew Crockwell was the one.
Not only do you get beautiful grounds but the Harpers and their team are phenomenal. They couldn't do enough for us and that was the decider for us. Organising a wedding is a stressful time! But the team at crockwell were with us every step of the way sharing ideas and supporting us with decisions.
The day itself was absolutely perfect. The great thing about Crockwell is that you have the venue the day before the wedding so we were able to set up and relax and enjoy our evening at the venue and utilising the accommodation in the village (East of Eydon). My groom and his groomsmen had a fantastic evening in the Royal Oak which is also owned by the family. I've been told the food is outstanding so we are already planning a date there as husband and wife!
Laura looked after us on the day and I can't praise her enough. Our guests loved the venue and we had compliments and commendations all day and following the big day.
When you book Crockwell you get more than just a venue. You truly do get a day to remember!
Becca & Dan, I am so glad your day was so memorable. We loved having you with us for your special day and hope to see you at The Royal Oak soon. Thank you very much for your lovely review. Best wishes for the future as Mr & Mrs Warren.
Best Day of Our Lives
By Hannah Richards, on 03 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 17 Apr 2017
I had picked Crockwell Farm as my wedding venue before I even got engaged. It had everything and more that I wanted for my very own day. The venue is just breathtaking, the grounds and gardens beautiful. You have full use of the venue for 2 days, which is fantastic as you are able to see it transformed into this magical place where you will get married and then you get to have a relaxing morning the day after. The accommodation is great, so comfortable and homely. The breakfast is AMAZING - scrambled eggs to die for and certainly the best cure for a sore head. The Chopping Block (caterers) provided the most delicious food for our guests and almost everyone said that it was the best food they'd ever had at a wedding. The venue itself is so convenient and easy as everything has its own space - a separate ceremony room, separate bar area, separate wedding breakfast marquee and separate dance floor. No awkward shifting of guests whilst the ceremony room is turned into a dance floor, etc. Laura is the most amazing, helpful and easy going organiser ever. I left her to get on with the decorating and she did a fantastic job, and she hires out her own decorations which is just a dream and so easy. She helped me feel so relaxed on the morning of the wedding that I didn't even feel nervous or stressed throughout the whole day. Hermione and co. were also fab and made us feel so welcome in their home. Stuart and I honestly felt like the only people to have ever got married there and I think that's what's very special about this place. Thanks for making our dream come true.
Hannah & Stuart, we are so glad you picked us! Thank you so much for your very kind review, it is lovely to read what an amazing few days you and your guests had and we are so glad we can offer this unique experience to our couples. Please come and visit us again soon. Very best wishes for your future together.
Wedding Wow Factor
By Alexandra & Andrew, on 19 Apr 2017Date of Wedding - 08 Apr 2017
We fell in love with Crockwell Farm when we attended a friend's wedding at the venue in 2013. When it came to planning our own special day we knew immediately where we would like to hold the Wedding and we feel so lucky that we were able to make it happen. The location is beautiful in all seasons. As soon as you arrive you feel relaxed and happy. The Harper family are very generous with their home and are so welcoming and friendly. It is clear that the whole Crockwell Team work incredibly hard to make each Wedding Party feel special and looked after. Our day was overseen by the wonderful Laura who is brilliant. She is super-organised and fun and was reassuring when any nerves kicked in. Laura works hard to be unobtrusive but on hand whenever needed and managed our day, making it run seamlessly. The Chopping Block provided all our guests with delicious food and everyone loved each dish. No-one went hungry and the presentation was amazing. The accommodation is very well appointed and comfortable. Having the Honeymoon Cottage to prepare and then walk through the door into the Vaulted Barn for the ceremony is perfect! The 'secret' dance floor was so much fun for our first dance. All our guests were blown away by the beauty of the setting. Some wished there was more accommodation so that they could also stay. One guest didn't want to go home the next morning! After a delicious breakfast we spent a few moments in the grounds before heading home. It was truly a magical day in the perfect location.
Thank you very much Alexandra & Andrew for your kind review. It means a lot to our team to know you enjoyed your day and experience with us. Wishing you all the best for the future and hopefully we may see you as guests at some point. From the Crockwell team.
The Best Wedding Venue You'll Find!
By Carla and Sam Wade, on 17 Apr 2017Date of Wedding - 06 Apr 2017
Crockwell Farm was the first venue we visited when looking around potential places for our wedding, and we instantly fell in love with it. Hermione and all her team made us feel completely at home and their communication after the first viewing right through to the day after our wedding day was nothing but exceptional.
The family opened up their home to us and made us feel that our wedding day was the one and only wedding day they had ever hosted. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they went out of their way to make sure we had the best day of our lives.
From the minute we arrived the day before the wedding, Hermione, Rosie and Laura couldn't have done more to help up set up and the day went without a hitch thanks to their organisation and hard work behind the scenes.
Every single guest at our wedding commented on how beautiful the venue was, how the food was delicious and how well the day ran - all thanks to the Crockwell staff and the Chopping Block caterers.
The clean up operation was so efficient and was all done by the next morning, making our job the morning after very easy!
The minute you look around Crockwell you will fall in love with the venue - trust your heart and don't look anywhere else.....I couldn't recommend it highly enough!
Thank you so much Carla & Sam for your lovely review. We really enjoyed hosting your day and getting to know you. Wishing you all the best for the future, keep in touch! The Crockwell team.
The perfect day!
By Lee & Faye Arnold, on 04 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 29 Oct 2016
From when we first met the Crockwell staff we knew they would do everything to make our day go perfect.
From every "what about this" email and every call of "could I just come over and" they were happy to help and no silly bride question or request was too much.
The day before the wedding they were great as my mum, bridesmaids and ushers descended on the venue to decorate. What was so lovely was how the staff left us to it but yet seemed to over hear any problems we had and would be on hand with a solution without us even having to ask.
On the day when we arrived for the reception we were met with a glass of champagne and all of our guests saying how amazing the venue was.
We were all left to celebrate and enjoy but yet at just the right moment Laura would appear and get people where they needed to be without people really noticing. The day just glided!
The food was amazing and every little food request by certain guests were met.
So many people commented on how the staff seemed to get things done yet you never saw them!
The dance floor is the real gem of the venue! All of our guests kept saying "where is the disco going to go?"
Standing on that dance floor ready for our first dance and the curtain just got pulled back, the look on everyone's faces is one of my best memories of the day! It's the best kept secret!
Faye and Lee, we are so glad that the day glided and ran so smoothly. You both looked gorgeous as the curtain pulled back for your first dance, we love our little secret! Best wishes from all at Crockwell as you start out on your married life together.
