    stunning wedding venue

    Absolutely loved our wedding venue!!! if you are looking into having a barn wedding would definitely recommend. I loved having the cottage at the venue to get ready in with all the bridesmaids, I was able to walk around the morning of and watch everything come together. Nothing but great things to say about this venue, all our guests loved it.

    Venue & ceremony

    We were happy with the venue appearance and over all look of the place was beautiful. But, the service and the equipment/cottage we received were not in good condition for a wedding. We were not provided with any shower condiments and the barn sound system was so low we couldn't hear anyone. It was unacceptable and caused us issues throughout the dinner. The owner did not keep proper track of payments we gave her, and now we overpaid, but we havent received a refund of that money back yet. We also got charged for our security deposit for her having to ask a few guests to smoke in the smoking area and claiming they broke a chair and table (which I doubt my guests did)
    I loved the location but for the trouble we went through and the money we spent it is not worth it. We also had problems with the heaters in the barn, and the owner was not very helpful with it. My husband had to keep leaving his dinner to fix it.

    Valley Croft's reply:

    HI Elisa
    Thank you for your comments. As promised, any over payments will be refunded.

    We appreciate your feedback, and will take your notes into consideration as we move forward into our next season.

    Regarding the security deposit, our policy is very clear and smoking anywhere near the barn does forfeit the deposit. The risk to our wooden century barn is just too great. We always try to work with guests and their co ordinator (if one is on hand) to ensure that guests follow the policy and there is no need to charge the deposit.

    If you would like to contact us by phone to discuss further, we would be very happy to chat with you.

    Thank you!

    ***stunning venue ***

    This venue is absolutely amazing!! Kate the owner of this superb venue is equally fantastic. Communication with Kate was incredible. The whole lead up tot he wedding was made extremely easy and stress free as Kate was fantastic at getting back to me and answered all my questions in such detail. I was a very nervous bride a week before my wedding and she truly calmed my nerves. The day of the wedding, Kate was fantastic. She ran around helping clean up and making the whole day run smoothly. She was even there when we had a scare and thought our officiant wasn't going to make it. Kate stopped everything to call all the vendors she knew to help us out. She was absolutely amazing on the day, and didn't bother myself or the Groom once with questions. Kate truly put so much into making sure our day run perfect no matter all the stress and we will forever be so grateful for her hard work. I would highly recommend this venue and Kate to every bride looking for the most perfect rustic barn :)

    Valley Croft's reply:

    Chantal, thank you so very much for taking the time to write. You, Joey and all your family and friends were a pleasure to have with us at Valley Croft for your special day!
    We want every couple that celebrates with us to have a stress free day, they will remember for ever - that's our job!
    Have a wonderful life together! "Let the Adventure Begin".
    Best wishes, Kate xo

    A dream come true

    From the moment we met Kate we knew Valley Croft was something special. The barn without any decor is so incredibly beautiful with all the rustic wood and twinkly lights and the pub like bar space was so fun. We were in love with the space immediately. The on site cottage was the perfect place for my bridesmaids and I to stay and get ready the day of and for my groom and I to spend the night. Kate is an absolutely incredible woman. Her and her team made sure every single detail was executed perfectly and we were getting exactly what we wanted. From the beginning you could tell that they truly care for the couples and just want everyone to have a great, stress free time. Kate had everything organized and planned so that I didn’t have to worry about anything and she was always an email or text away when I needed anything. Even when we had to change plans at the last minute because of rain she made sure each and every moment was perfect. There is nowhere else I could’ve imagined getting married. We cannot thank her and her team enough.

    Valley Croft's reply:

    Traci!
    We can't thank you enough for taking the time to write your review. We truly appreciate it!

    We are so happy that we were able to help bring your dream wedding to life! Your entire group or family and friends were a delight to work with!
    Wishing you a lifetime of Love & Happiness Always!

    Perfect country wedding!

    Such a beautiful venue! The lower barn is perfect for any reception (the layout is like a pub) and having the cottage to stay at on the property is a bonus. Kate was very accommodating and flexible in the midst of a pandemic and made sure we still had our perfect day! The bartenders were so fun and made sure everyone had a good time. The price is very reasonable and I guarantee you will love it!

    Valley Croft's reply:

    Thank you so much Amanda for leaving for feedback such a lovely review! This year was certainly challenging for everyone, and we appreciate your cooperation so much as we worked together to update your wedding plans! We wish you both a very happy life! I would love to reach out directly and get some more feedback from you!

    Amazing venue and staff!

    We hosted a Sunday wedding at Valley Croft last July. It was amazing. I will admit, I was a little uncertain at first about a Sunday wedding. But it worked out perfectly. The staff were so helpful in setting things up and answering all our last minute emails and questions. The grounds were so pretty and we loved the cozy pub feel of lower level for dancing. Highly recommend this option for couples looking to have a wonderful day, and not breaking the bank!

    July 7 wedding - wonderful!!!! Best Day Ever!!

    We were married at Valley Croft on July 7th. We actually found the venue through WeddingWire. We researched a TON of venues, and found Valley Croft offered the flexibility we really wanted. The owners were awesome to work with, and really helped out a lot with recommendations and suggestions. All my girls loved the cottage. I can't wait to see our pictures from the woodland. Highly recommended!
