Beautiful - couldn't have found a better place.

We couldn’t have found a better place to have our wedding celebration. Jeremy, Rachael, and their team were unbelievably helpful throughout the whole process. There was ample room for our guests, a self-contained catering tent and kitchen, along with more than enough room for a stage, band and dancefloor inside. The surrounding grounds and barn itself are beautiful, which provided an amazing backdrop in wedding photos. We couldn’t recommend this venue more! .

Thank you.

Thank you and all the team at the Sancroft Barns. We had a brilliant party and so did our guests and thanks go to you and your team.

What a party!

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for providing such a perfect venue for Amelia & Dan’s wedding celebration last weekend.  What a party! They have still not come back down to earth, and there have been so many compliments. I think it goes without saying that everyone enjoyed themselves.

Thanks for all your help and support and for just being there. You were so generous in allowing us to pick flowers from your personal garden, the boys getting ready in your house and the photographs being taken there.

We will be recommending your venue to anyone who asks.

Perfect venue

"Tom and I got married at the Sancroft Barns this year and it was perfect!
From start to finish Jeremy and Rachael were incredibly helpful. No random request was too much work (even when Tom suggested he might sky dive into the wedding!) and they were easily contactable. They were full of local recommendations for food/drink/accommodation. You can really sense their enthusiasm for other people's happiness, treating you as individuals not just a client. It was a really nice touch having them around for the celebrations, mixing with our guests and generally having fun!
The venue is beautiful; great balance of indoor and outdoor space - exactly what we wanted! We were really lucky with the weather but even if the heavens had opened, it would have still been gorgeous.
We highly recommend the Sancroft Barns, whatever your occasion!

A magical day

"Our wedding at Sancroft Barns was so amazing, such a beautiful venue and our day was just perfect.

Jeremy and Rachael and the family were brilliant and made the day and process absolutely seamless, they couldn't do enough to help out wherever possible. Also the lead up to the wedding was fantastic from allowing you to view the barn for ideas to instantly answering the many questions we threw at them. The hire companies they also suggest to use were brilliant; between Sancroft and said companies it made hiring and getting everything there very easy. 

Somehow they made it feel like the most laid back day going (it probably wasn't for them), which I expect a lot of couples getting married can't say and everything flowed exactly as we hoped. We had so many people say it was the best wedding they'd been to which says a lot in itself. Thank you so much for a beautiful and perfect day."

Wonderful owners and a brilliant venue

"We planned our wedding party at the Sancroft Barns (which we’d had to postpone numerous times due to COVID) from Bangkok without having visited the venue, which could have turned out to be a complete disaster! But our experience couldn’t have been further from it. The barn is beautifully restored in gorgeous rural Suffolk; Jeremy, Rachael and their team couldn’t have been more helpful, flexible or accommodating right from the first enquiry I sent to them. They were completely unflappable on the day of the event when storm Anthony hit - we were camping in bell tents at the venue and they offered us their guest room inside the farmhouse to get ready, met our guests with umbrellas in the car park, had a basket of towels ready and really had everything covered too in terms of a wet weather plan. We really felt that they bought into the spirit of our party too and helped make it a brilliant afternoon and evening. 

I wholeheartedly recommend the venue, especially if you want to avoid the cookie cutter wedding venue conveyer belt - they are the opposite of this but still utterly reliable and professional. We’ll be forever grateful to them for hosting our wedding party and ensuring it was just as we wanted."

Gorgeous barn

"Wow what a stunning barn. No detail has been overlooked in its sympathetic restoration. The heating is brilliant - and we needed it that night, it was -4 outside!  Warm and cosy, lovely lighting, space to mingle then to have a sumptuous dinner, followed by some Dad dancing, courtesy of the modern speaker system installed! The new floor looks amazing too.

The barn has really been brought back to life, but you can still see all the history in its walls and on the beams. And even though we didn't use it (too cold!), the outside courtyard is a joy, and it has opened up the space magnificently.  Great venue, great party."

Stunning venue

"Thank you Rachel and Jeremy for offering us your stunning venue to host a surprise 60th party for Mum yesterday. It’s the most stunning venue, the perfect back drop to a party. You looked after us so well and were so generous with the preparations leading up to the party and on the day. 

Perfect venue for a perfect party. THANK YOU"

Ginny Sewell (Lavinia's 60th birthday party) September 2022

Such an amazing setting

"I recently got married at The Sancroft Barns - we were the venues first wedding since opening. We booked the venue in December 2021 when the barn was still in the middle of work being completed but we could tell Jeremy and Rachael had amazing ideas and plans for the space, everything came together perfectly!

As a 'dry hire' venue we had complete freedom to choose different suppliers and vendors, there was no set list we had to choose from like we had found with other venues. And we had no idea Jeremy and Rachael would go so above and beyond to help ensure the smooth running of the day, I don't think a single thing happened out of time or went even slightly wrong which I'm sure is unheard of with weddings.

There are amazing places around the grounds for photo opportunities, we were extremely lucky with the weather having beautiful sunshine and got some amazing sunset shots with their fields and gardens as the back drop - we can't wait to get our full album back to be able to share more with you.

Anyone who is considering hiring glamping tents we would definitely recommend, it was so lovely the morning after the wedding waking up with family and friends, and being provided much-needed free tea and coffee.

We had so many lovely compliments from guests, and we wish you both every luck with the venue for the future. Thank you very much for being the setting for our big day, we will remember it forever and would recommend you to anyone."

An exceptional venue

"My daughter and now son-in-law recently married here having the wedding ceremony and receptions in the main barn and marquee. Nothing was too much trouble and the day was completely faultless.

An exceptional venue, incredible hosts and I cannot recommend Sancroft Barns as a wedding venue more highly."


Just amazing

"What an amazing place! Made to feel so at ease and welcome!

Jeremy and Rachael were amazing hosts from start to finish, allowing us the freedom to create our day. Helping us along the way making it run smoothly and with little personal touches you wouldn't expect.

Lovely venue and genuinely nice people!"

Max Goodwin

So friendly

“You have such a beautiful venue, and you made us feel so at ease, taking time to show us round your gorgeous grounds, which really stood out from all the other venues we visited. It was such a friendly experience, and we will certainly recommend the venue to anyone looking in the future."

Becky and Tia 2021

A truly gorgeous day

“What an amazing paddock at the Sancroft Barns - it’s such a gorgeous spot. We used all our own suppliers for the wedding, and Jeremy and Rachael couldn’t have been more helpful in making our day perfect. With loads of space it was a truly memorable day for us and our guests – thank you.”
