Full Description
The Waltham Barn is a restored mid 19th century working farm, and perfect for smaller, relaxed intimate weddings. The wedding team are dedicated & passionate to ensure your day is perfect, ensuring attention to detail at every stage. With only one wedding a day, the focus is all on you. With some lovely photo opportunities, stylish décor and private use of the large flagstone courtyard, it's a venue to take into consideration, especially as the cost is so very reasonable and offering great value. Unlike other venues you will not lose your guests to an over-sized room and our brand new wedding garden (under construction) is sure to add some extra magic to your special day.

Thank you so much for making our day so perfect.
We came to look at Little Channels and booked it straight away for our wedding. It’s such a beautiful venue and we instantly fell in love with the beautiful beams and fairy lights. We’d also seen on previous reviews about how well organised the staff are something which was really important to us. They were amazing, keeping in contact with us and answering any little or big questions, they were so well organised even doing two plans of our decor (Incase it rained which it did!) despite the rain we had the best day and it went perfectly with out any issues. We had so many compliments on the beautiful venue and amazing food. Special thanks to Dannielle and Jason who ensured the day ran smoothly they did a fantastic job. Thank you so much for making our day so perfect, Mr and Mrs Lacey

Where do we start......Danielle & the team have been fantastic from start to finish, nothing was an issue or a problem, she made our day the very best, made sure timings were key, and everything was in order! It’s such a beautiful venue for the intimate wedding, everything was exactly how I’d dream it would be! The day flew by so quickly I wish I could do it all over again! The photos were absolutely stunning! It’s amazing what a golf course can achieve! If anyone is thinking of booking their dream wedding with little Channels, I can guarantee you will not be disappointed! Good luck all you brides & grooms to be! 💞🎩💍

No but we once had Danny Dyer turn up to a children's party dressed as a pirate!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

What part of your business are you most proud of?

Our feedback and reputation for having created so many happy memories. There is nothing better than hearing a happy couple tell you how amazing their day was, it makes all the long hours so worth it.
