This family-owned-and-operated establishment offers comprehensive wedding packages and attentive service to make your day unforgettable.

Facilities and Capacity

As well as large, family gatherings, Happy Valley also has the perfect set-up for more intimate, micro weddings and elopements.

Here, up to 150 seated guests can enjoy panoramic views across the breathtaking landscape as they drink, dine, and dance. This venue also offers onsite, luxury, glamping accommodation for up to 28 guests for those that wish to turn their celebration into a multi-day affair. Guests can choose from bell tents, shepherd huts, cosy cabins, and more for their overnight stay. Year-round hot tubs and fire pits are also available on the grounds for guests to enjoy.

    Happy Valley Wedding

    The most beautiful venue for our intimate wedding of 10 that we were determined to have despite being amidst a global pandemic. Katy and Kirsty were the perfect hosts and throughout the pandemic and with one already rescheduled date, they worked with us and we could not have asked for more. They were accommodating, understanding and so patient and helped us to still have the most perfect wedding day. Happy Valley itself is also so perfect, beautiful and is full to the brim with wonderful natural and idyllic views and accommodation and we cannot wait to return and be back in our Happy Valley bubble once again.

    Feels like a second, more glamorous home

    As an eco wedding florist I LOVE working with Happy Valley. The first time I went there was on a site visit with a prospective couple. There were soooooo many ceremony and party options and we loved walking around picturing the wedding. We definitely jumped up and down and did some excited clapping when we decided on the woods next to Toad Hall. As a designer, there was so much to take inspiration from - not only is the site full of lushness but the surrounding fields are dreamy.

    I was impressed by the eco credentials too, which included eco friendly products in the toilet blocks and sympathetically built and planted facilities.

    Katy and Scott are so welcoming and great to work with. Happy Valley feels like a second, more glamourous and exciting home. I can't wait to get back there to unleash a frenzy of fabulous floral creations.

    The Perfect Woodland Wedding Venue

    Happy Valley is a unique and picturesque venue, full of incredible, natural spaces that create the perfect ambience for your wedding day. Outdoor ceremonies and rustic barns make Happy Valley the perfect woodland wedding venue and is one of my absolute favourite spaces to photograph. You can really make it your own and spend a few days chilling out with your wedding party. The team are fantastic and will go out of their way to help and make you feel as relaxed as possible. Of all the venues I photograph, this is certainly one of the most inspiring! I would highly recommend it for that super cool, boho vibe! - Aurora Grey Photography

    I cannot put into words how wonderful it is

    Happy Valley was our wedding venue of dreams - we have quite big families so were looking for a large venue in Norfolk with enough space for all the kids to run wild & free!

    The venue is perfect as it has endless beautiful outdoor space but also the most beautiful indoor barns. We were able to have our ceremony outdoors surrounded by trees and looking out to the Norfolk countryside. To be able to spend the weekend on site with our friends and family was just perfect and made our wedding so much more special - we will absolutely be back for future weddings!

    Katy & Scott have made the most beautiful venue, I can’t quite put into words for wonderful it is! It has been made with such love & care and absolutely made our wedding so special. Each accommodation was beautiful and perfect for our guests.

    Happy Valley is the perfect woodland getaway and made our wedding day the most special day.

    Thank you for everything!!!

    An absolute dream venue

    Happy Valley is the most incredible place. We were lucky enough to hold our September wedding there and we still can't believe how beautiful it was. With little gypsy caravans and bell tents in the woods, us and our closest friends and family could stay all weekend, making it feel extra special. It is such a child friendly venue, with acres of space (literally!) for our 6 little flower girls to run riot, I don't think they ever really left the rope swings! If the weather isn't the best, there is plenty of beautiful inside space that offers a great peace of mind in the run up to the day. Katy, Scott and Gemma make the whole process so relaxing and completely stress free. They are there when you need them but very much stay in the background to leave you to enjoy your weekend. I can't think of any other wedding venue where you can spend your wedding morning drinking champagne in a wood fired hot tub in the forest, before having your ceremony under a willow tree on an island on a lake, before sitting around a fire pit toasting marshmallows with your guests whilst the sun goes down. The following morning was just as fun, with all of our guests who'd stayed overnight milling around in their pyjamas and wellies, eating bacon sandwiches cooked on the bbq, whilst reminiscing about the day before. We honestly cannot recommend Happy Valley enough.

    The venue speaks for itself

    Leon and I were fortunate enough to hold our dream "festival" wedding at Happy Valley. From start to finish Katy and Scott were extremely welcoming and made planning our perfect day even more relaxed. The venue speaks for itself and we managed to get all 80 guests on the idyllic island in the middle of the venue for our ceremony. Afternoon drinks, listening to an acoustic duo looking over the lake, followed by dancing the night away to a live band on stage inside the Dutch Barn was the exact vision we had planned. We were lucky with the weather so our day time catering set up the BBQ in the court yard, however if needed there was plenty of shelter in the hay barn. As for photographs, were do you start. Our wedding photographer 'Darina Stoda' was spoilt for choice with endless photo opportunities. After a few drinks we even got pictured on the tyre swing, lets face it, the dress was never going to stay white. We can't recommend Happy Valley enough for giving us our most perfect day. Hopefully we get to renew our vows in years to come with another celebration at this hidden gem.

    A stunning venue in the most idyllic location

    Happy Valley is the most stunning venue in the most idyllic location.
    We were lucky enough to be booked with our Glitter Bar here for a September wedding last year and it was truly amazing.
    Katy and her wonderful team are so lovely and welcoming and put great care and attention to detail into everything they do.
    I would highly recommend this venue to all couples looking for a care-free, relaxed wedding in the beautiful outdoors.

    Happy Valley - Stunning venue that keeps on giving

    We were fortunate enough to hold our wedding reception at Happy Valley, an idyllic and peaceful spot hidden in West Norfolk's beautiful countryside. The venue has it all: a lake with a bridge to a little island in the middle (you can also get married on this island), magical woodland accommodation and facilities (including hot tubs), huge party barns and all surrounded by nothing but peaceful woodland and glorious Norfolk sunsets. It really is the perfect, private wedding venue and you will be spoilt for choice with photograph opportunities. We had our drinks reception and canapés on the edge of the pretty lake, using the lean-to of the Dutch barn as our outside bar area, and had a band playing outdoors near the willow trees to accompany. We then moved inside to the incredible Dutch barn which has stunning views across the lake, to eat and party the night away - it was just amazing. There's a built-in bar area already in the Dutch barn which is a lovely touch, a stage was set-up for the band to play on in the evening and our caterers set-up camp in the Hay barn. We were very lucky with the weather, but both barns at Happy Valley offer great (and dry!) spaces to be in whatever the weather. Katy and Scott, the owners, really are the most fantastic hosts, and we couldn't thank them enough for everything they did to help ensure we had the perfect day. None of us wanted to leave at the end of the weekend, and it will forever remain the most special place for us. We can't recommend Happy Valley highly enough, and have spent most days since wishing we could do it all over again. The venue really is a gift that keeps on giving.

    I would be back at Happy Valley like a shot

    When we started searching for a wedding venue I had a fairly clear idea of the kind of place we were looking for - I just wasn’t sure if it existed! When we met Katy at Happy Valley, however, these fears were alleviated. Happy Valley is, put simply, wild. A secluded setting with all the natural beauty of the forest, nearby fields for those coveted ‘golden hour’ portraits, a rope swing and even its own lake and island! Happy valley provided more than the ‘blank canvas’ we were after to create *our* day, it was a stunning backdrop upon which we were able to have a unique celebration with our friends and family.
    There was flexibility around all aspects of the day - we were able to choose our own caterer, bring our own alcohol, have a ceilidh and a band and even a guest appearance from the horse I learnt to ride on!

    Katy is the coolest lady, she was able to provide recommendations of local suppliers, we even had the same wedding florist (Jo Flowers is the dream!)

    Our wedding pictures and video are the beautiful reminder of a truly amazing day - my best people all in one wonderful, unique place. It’s our 5th anniversary this year (how has this happened?!) and if we could do it all again I’d be back at Happy Valley like a shot!
