Bookings are made with exclusive use over a weekend, for up to 100 guests ~ giving you space and time to make the most of this delightful venue to create your own wedding in the style you love.

Surrounded by a medieval grove, The Keeper and the Dell offers the Bride & Groom and their guests a pretty, romantic venue with the wonderful chance to marry, celebrate & sleep under the stars, all within a beautiful country setting.
You may not have been born in a barn, or happen to live in one, but at The Keeper and the Dell, you get the unique chance to celebrate your wedding fully in your own relaxed style. Whilst the historic barn is a main feature, guests can also find themselves enjoying the fabulous Terrace, Birch Gardens, and the Dell itself with Cabin Deck, Den and beautiful vintage Marquee ~ giving plenty of beautiful spaces for photo opportunities and shelter from whatever the English Summer may throw at us!
"We simply cannot recommend the Keeper and the Dell highly enough. Just Imagine getting married at a wonderful venue.
It is so different to the halls you often see. It offered the most beautiful backdrop for our photos, our guests loved it
almost as much as we did and visually, no other venue in Norfolk comes close. The Keeper and the Dell is just so idyllic.
visually it’s perfect, but it was the attention to detail from Lolly and her amazing staff that really
made us feel at ease and left us to simply enjoy our perfect day"
The Barn, vintagely outfitted for wonderfully special celebrations, yet pays homage to it's history. The relaxed living room is the perfect space for the signing of the Wedding License, a lovely place to set up a gift table with a guest book or display a Wedding Cake. Other lovely areas are never too far away, with the Terrace just outside the old Barn doors, being the perfect spot for a friendly circle of friends, enjoying each others company around the warmth of the firepit
Our wonderful marquee is part of the deal ~ there are no hidden high costs for hiring this beautiful marquee. We're very proud of our marquee and rightly so as it is beautifully vintage, handmade in Norfolk with a traditional canvas, strong wooden poles and British made coconut matting. Our marquee is literally a blank canvas, ready for you to decorate & add your own little touches that you’ve either made or you have picked up along the way.
