The Perfect Spot

We were looking for a reception venue that would allow our guests and us to have fun and celebrate our day. Not only did we get that, but the beauty of the property (the trails, trees, on-site cottage, and 1876 barn) and the amazing décor (chandeliers in the woods, vintage couches and trunks as coffee tables, and bonfire) made for an unforgettable night for everyone. All of our 80 guests raved about the atmosphere. Kate (venue owner) was amazing throughout the entire planning process. She responded quickly to any questions we had and when we needed suggestions for the day of, she did not disappoint! The day would not have been as smooth as it was without her. It was truly stress free for the two of us.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

***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 :)
