At a glance, Crockwell Farm is a specialist family-run wedding venue founded in 2002, providing a unique service with exclusive use of the venue over three days. Set against a backdrop of rolling South Northamptonshire countryside, undiscovered lanes and sleepy stone built villages, but within easy reach of the M40 and M1.

Whether you’re planning a small, intimate occasion or a large, lavish affair, Crockwell Farm can be tailored to suit you. The 17th century oak-beamed vaulted barn, fully insulated permanent starlit marquees, and beautiful gardens and grounds provide you with a personal and flexible space for your big day.

Couples have three options for their civil ceremony on site, including outdoor ceremonies in the Crockwell Orchard. Couples can also host a reception at Crockwell following a church wedding and can choose to marry in the beautiful local church of St Nicholas, in Eydon.

Crockwell is one of the few wedding venues in Northamptonshire to offer dedicated accommodation for the bride and groom, as well as their immediate family and friends. There are nine spacious bedrooms within the farm cottages providing a home from home experience over three days and two nights.

Crockwell Farm offers a professional service with a personal approach. Throughout your wedding preparations, our small dedicated 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.

Our cateres, Ross & Ross have won the UK Wedding Award Caterers of the Year award for the last three years. We couldn't be happier to work with a caterer local to us that shares 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.

    Perfect wedding day at Crockwell Farm

    My husband and I hosted our wedding at the beautiful Crockwell Farm on 02/09/2021. As soon as we visited for the first time in summer 2020, we knew that Crockwell Farm was going to be our wedding venue. From that moment on, every member of staff put 100% into making our wedding vision come true.
    The venue was perfectly set in the rolling countryside and our dream of getting married outside was also made possible.
    A definite bonus to this venue was being able to stay on site the night before and after the wedding alongside our family and closest friends, with breakfast provided both days!

    We would absolutely recommend Crockwell Farm to anyone looking to get married here; the buildings, grounds and staff are absolutely fantastic!

    The most perfect, romantic and idyllic venue.

    We were lucky enough to have hosted two weddings at Crockwell Farm- both our legal ceremony at Crockwell in July 2020 and our blessing ceremony this week. Despite the lifting of lockdown we opted for a smaller wedding on the 14th June 2021 rather than postponing again. Looking back, we were really pleased we chose to go ahead as the day was extremely intimate and we enjoyed the whole day much more with only our close friends and family. Crockwell have been through our wedding journey since 2018, we looked at three venues but picked Crockwell as our favourite mainly due to the fact the venue was gorgeous and the friendliness of staff on their open evening. Ross and Ross caterers provided us with the best roast dinner we’ve ever eaten and the service was flawless. Throughout planning we haven’t once felt like we couldn’t pick up the phone and ask random silly questions, we got to know each and every member of staff and they helped us with nerves, stress and understanding the restrictions. A huge thank you for us goes mainly to Rosie, Amy, Hermione and Mel. Mel co-ordinated our full day on both weddings and she did a fantastic job of it, the staff are extremely friendly, the venue is romantic and idyllic. We got to enjoy both a garden ceremony and inside within the barn, so it felt like we had the best of both worlds. We would love to do it all again but I think two weddings for anyone is plenty! Thank you again to everyone, we couldn’t have picked a better venue to share our special day with.

    Crockwell Farm's reply:

    Thank you so much for your kind review Sophie & Josh. It was a privilege to host both your ceremony last year, and your celebration this year. Covid has thrown us all so many challenges, and you have taken each one in your stride and not allowed restrictions to curtail your joy or celebration which is a fine example. Thanks you for choosing Crockwell and please keep in touch! Amy

    Amazing setting for our perfect day

    I can't recommend Crockwell enough as a wedding venue. From the first look around to the day after our wedding, the service we received was personal, attentive and flexible. Rosie and Laura were always on hand in the run up to answer last minute questions about the minutiae of our day with extremely speedy and comprehensive responses, and helped us to create a wedding that was absolutely and uniquely "us." Nothing we asked was ever too much trouble, even though what we wanted was definitely outside of the norm! I had complete faith that they would make our day everything we wanted and more, and we were right to place our trust in them. Everything was perfect, and we truly had the best day of our lives. I cannot recommend Crockwell and the team enough if you're looking for a stunning, relaxed setting with a supportive and attentive team. Thank you so much to everyone at Crockwell!

    Crockwell Farm's reply:

    Emily & Joe, thank you for your ever so kind words. We loved working with you to create your perfect day, you are a fabulous couple and we wish you all the very best for a fantastic future.

    Amazing, Fantastic, Wonderful, Perfect Wedding Venue!

    We booked our wedding back in 2018 and absolutely fell in love with the venue, the grounds and the staff instantly. Unfortunately our original wedding date of July 2020 was postponed due to Covid-19 and pushed back to June 2021. Firstly the staff were fantastic at supporting us in the difficult times when we postponed, they kept us informed and were very fair at choosing new dates.

    We then had the most perfect wedding day on Saturday 12th June that was everything i'd ever dreamed of. I do not regret going ahead with the 30 person wedding at all, it was intimate but still felt like enough people. The staff were absolutely fantastic in the lead up and on the day it just ran perfectly. Sarah was our wedding co-ordinator who was just incredible from start to finish. Hermione, Amy & Rosie also kept us supported along the way, it feels like a lovely family run venue with so much care and effort going into every wedding.

    I hope one day we can be luckily enough to get re-invited to another wedding here just so we can visit again!

    Crockwell Farm's reply:

    Thank you so much Jodie for your lovely review! We know what a rollercoaster the past year has been and we're just delighted that we were able to work with you to find a good date and alternative plan. Thank you for putting your faith in us and for being incredibly understanding and patient throughout. It was a real joy to host your wedding and the smiles on the day were infectious. We wish you and Bobby the very best for the future and hopefully we will see you at a Crockwell wedding again in the future!

    Our intimate wedding

    We were a couple who were affected by the postponement of our wedding. However, we decided to go with a small ceremony this month, it was perfect and the staff were incredibly supportive to us. We can’t wait to share our next day with them next year for the full day.

    Crockwell Farm's reply:

    Thank you so much for your review Sophie. It's been a whirlwind year for everyone and we were so relieved that we were able to help you have your wedding ceremony this year.

    Fairytale venue

    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.

    Crockwell Farm's reply:

    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!

    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

    Crockwell Farm's reply:

    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

    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.

    Crockwell Farm's reply:

    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.

    27.07.19 Wedding

    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!!

    Crockwell Farm's reply:

    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

    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!!

    Crockwell Farm's reply:

    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!

    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.

    Crockwell Farm's reply:

    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

    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.

    Crockwell Farm's reply:

    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.

    Amazing!

    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

    Crockwell Farm's reply:

    Simply amazing.

    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!

    Crockwell Farm's reply:

    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.
