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.
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.

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
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.

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!
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.
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.
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
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.
By Hannah & Luke Jones, on 29 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 03 Mar 2018
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!
By Sammy Barnes, on 24 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 24 Jun 2017
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.
