Guest Information

We look forward to welcoming your guests to College Farm and very much hope they will enjoy their day here. 

Please note that College Farm is a private house and not a hotel

College Farm is a Grade II* Listed building and was built by our ancestors in 1349.  It is now our family home and we have lived here for the last 45 years. 

The house is not part of the venue hire and we ask that you respect our private space. The house will be kept locked for security reasons but guests staying in the house may gain access at certain times if requested.  For security reasons, non-residents are not allowed in any bedrooms or anywhere in the house at any time. The house is for our private use only & those staying as guests.

Laura & Adam's Wedding at College Farm Norfolk

Guest Bedrooms

Use of our three guest bedrooms are provided, and the bride and groom will be in charge of allocating these to their guests.  

Camping Facilities

Guests are very welcome to camp in our field on the night of the wedding. There is a cold tap but unfortunately we are unable to offer shower facilities.  Please see our dedicated Camping Information page for more details.

College Farm is an outdoor wedding venue and you should dress appropriately and be aware of insects and other wildlife.

After Hours Noise

Residents remaining on site as B&B guests or campers are requested to behave in a quiet and orderly manner after the end of the festivities. In particular please do not make excessive noise out of respect to those of us living here, our neighbours and the environment in general.  Noise travels a long way and can sometimes be heard a couple of miles away!

Confetti

We ask that you only use natural confetti – eg, fresh or dried flowers & petals.  Metallic confetti is strictly prohibited as it is very difficult to clean up & is dangerous for our many animals.  

Children & Parents

Please be aware that College Farm is a working farm. We have ponds close to the house; several uneven surfaces;  machinery, gates and lots of animals (sheep, chickens, llamas, alpacas, cats). Parents and guardians are responsible for the safety of their children at all times whilst at College Farm (children should never be left unaccompanied). We reserve the right to ask parents of unsupervised or disruptive children to remove them from the premises.

Timings

All music (live or recorded) will finish at 11 pm. Bars will also stop serving at 11pm. 

Parking 

The drive in front of the house should be kept clear on wedding days. Exceptions are for Bridal cars and disabled guests. We are happy for cars to drop off passengers but all cars must be parked in the designated car park. There is ample parking in the field behind the house – access is via Butters Hall Lane and the car park is well signposted.

Cars may be left overnight but they must be collected by 12 noon the next day when we lock the gate into the car park.  Cars are left entirely at the owners’ risk.

Lost Property 

We will store any lost property we find and guests may either collect their lost items or arrange for courier collection. Please ring 01953.483.318 or email info@collegefarmnofolk.co.uk to report any lost items and we will let you know if we have found them.

Non-residents

All non-residents are requested to leave the site at the end of the festivities when the generator will be turned off and the site closed for the night. 

Promotional Materials

College Farm reserves the right to take promotional photos & videos which we may use online through our website, Instagram, Facebook & Twitter and/or through printed media.

The site must be vacated by midnight.

We reserve the right to change these terms & conditions at any time and without notice.
