Chaucer Barn is situated on the edge of the charming village of Gresham in North Norfolk, tucked into a valley classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The beautiful unspoilt coast is just two and a half miles away, offering the vast white sandy beaches of Holkham and Wells and the ‘Poppyland’ towns of Sheringham and Cromer, not to mention the largest salt marshes (National Trust) in the UK, boasting the UK’s largest colony of Grey seals. They are also very near to the pretty Georgian town of Holt, with its boutiques and cafés. The area features sailing in the National Trust salt marshes, beautiful walks and year-round birdwatching.
You can explore the Norfolk Broads, which are a mere thirty minute drive away, and they can recommend lots of historic places of interest to visit, such as the Holkham and Blickling Estates.
Chaucer Barn has a relaxed, rustic and unique vibe offering luxurious and stylish informality in a tranquil and imaginative setting. They want their guests to make the award winning barn conversion their own home-from-home and stamp their individuality on the venue. No two weddings are ever the same at Chaucer Barn!
The tone of Chaucer Barn is one of stylish informality, ranging from the cathedral-like space of the main hall to the contemporary chic of the pink sitting room. 16 acres of rolling parkland surround the stunning 4 acre garden. So whether you stand at the end of the topiary pyramid forest and gaze down the oak avenue toward the 20-acre wood, or stroll from the living willow arch through the wild flower meadow, your only problem will be choosing where to spend your important moments! Do you fancy a woodland wedding? And on which of the various lawns might you hold your reception? You can’t say that a Chaucer Barn wedding is a ‘one size fits all’ wedding. You have a blank canvas on which to stamp your own identity.
Whilst they offer couples total flexibility in their choice of suppliers, the team are also on-hand to give as much or as little support as they need in the planning stages and they have a list of favourite suppliers if needed.
By inviting their guests to return as often as they like, they hope that they will feel relaxed when it comes to their stay. With 9 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms, guests can share the barn for a long weekend or mid-week stay and have time to relax and set down roots with their friends and family.
Chaucer Barn also have 5 cutting edge, self-contained Eco-lodges hidden in the woods. They are exquisitely crafted, luxurious and can accommodate up to 4 guests each. Crucially, you can find them only a short walk from the Barn, on the edge of the parkland. They feature all the comforts of home in an awe-inspiring location.
Each lodge nestles in a unique setting, with bathing and kitchen facilities, a wood-burning stove complete with logs, mood lighting and the gorgeous views (including a magical stone circle) of the parkland and it’s wildlife.
Opportunities and ideas are endless – swing by and see their friendly team to discuss your perfect wedding.
