The venue at Crockwell: stone barn and farmhouse and wooden terrace.

The Vaulted Barn

Our stone vaulted barn dates from the 1700’s and forms part of the original farm buildings. In the early 2000’s, the barn which had been used as an agricultural building was lovingly restored and we started hosting small weddings and parties. Today, the barn remains the ultimate romantic location for wedding ceremonies. With a capacity of 86, very little decoration is needed other than church candles which we will light for you before your ceremony and perhaps some flowers.

The Saddle Room Bar

Connecting the vaulted barn, starlit marquee and leading into the breakfast room is our bar. Completely refurbished in Spring 2020, the bar boasts underfloor heating throughout, beautiful oak timbers and a cosy fireplace. Our bar is a great gathering place; it is where your guests will come together before the ceremony and is used throughout the wedding day. The bar will be open from an hour before the ceremony through to closing time, usually at 12.30am. It stocks a good range of premium beers and ales including Birra Moretti, Heineken, Doom Bar and Guiness as well as a large selection of gins and spirits.

The Starlit Marquee

The marquee at Crockwell is situated next to the bar and inside a well insulated building. It offers panoramic views of the Northamptonshire countryside through expansive windows and is the ultimate blank canvass on which to create your wedding theme. The marquee is beautiful as it comes, with a fairy light canopy, large hanging hoops with foliage and a choice of round tables with white table linen or rustic, long tables. We provide all the crockery, cutlery, glassware and chairs as well as various optional props such as the balustrade and urns. Our 2020 refurb has included the installation of underfloor heating and attractive neutral flooring throughout the marquee. Couples are encouraged to let their imaginations run wild when it comes to decorations (although in reality very little is needed; table centres are the only essential addition). Having use of the venue from 2pm the day before the wedding allows our couples the time to create their vision and is a treasured part of the Crockwell wedding experience. The marquee can host ceremonies as well as receptions for up to 200 guests.

The Beautiful Gardens and Orchard

Crockwell is a privately owned, 400 acre farm and the venue and farmhouse sit in the centre of the estate. Surrounded on all sides by fields, it is an idyllic, secluded and very beautiful spot. The gardens are lovingly maintained and planned each year by owner, Hermione who works hard to ensure that Crockwell looks beautiful throughout the year. Through the summer months in good weather, reception drinks and canapes are served in the garden under the huge Walnut tree. Garden games and entertainment are always popular and photo opportunities are abundant. Leading from the garden is our Orchard with a tree-lined aisle and a permanent gazebo which can host outside ceremonies for any number of guests.

Accommodation for your Guests

Situated in the farmhouse and adjoining cottages are nine spacious bedrooms, many of which are family rooms enabling you to accommodate the core wedding party for two nights. Gathering your closest family and friends on site the day before the wedding is a really special and exciting time and something only made possible through our three day use. There is much excitement the day before, and morning of the wedding when preparations are complete and it is time to relax and enjoy the experience.

The Breakfast Room

Part of our 2020 renovations has been to add this beautiful banqueting room. Adjacent to the bar and accessible through a large rolling door, our breakfast room is a stylish contemporary space to gather the troops for a big breakfast on the morning of and morning after your wedding. Breakfasts at Crockwell are a highlight. Always relaxed (great moments should never be rushed), breakfast consists of fresh fruit, homemade granola, yogurts and toast followed by a cooked breakfast of local free range sausages, bacon and eggs, organic mushrooms and tomatoes from our closest village. For a lighter breakfast on the morning of the wedding, sometimes the bridal party may opt for bagels with smoked salmon and scrambled eggs. Our “hangover breakfast” the morning after happens around 9.30am and is a chance to regale family and friends with the events of the previous day and bid farewell before departing into married life and hopefully, a relaxing honeymoon.
