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.

Best day of our lives
All of the amazing team at Little Channels – especially Dannielle – made our wedding day on the 21st September 2018 so special and memorable. Absolutely everything was perfect! They were all so helpful from start to finish and made us feel like the most important people in the world in the lead up to the wedding and on the day itself. Every time we came to Little Channels – even for just a cheeky look at the venue – we were instantly recognised and warmly welcomed in, which made everything feel so personal and special. We had the best day possible at Little Channels; all of our guests kept saying how beautiful the venue was and how lovely all the staff were. They set everything up for us perfectly meaning we had nothing to worry about on the morning of the wedding and the food was absolutely delicious! They played such a huge part in our perfect day and we can't thank Little Channels enough for everything.

Wish we could do it all over again!
We had our wedding at Little Channels on Sunday, the whole day was absolutely perfect, Dannielle was fantastic from the initial planning stages right through to the evening reception, she was so knowledgeable, calming and helpful. Jason was also brilliant and so hard-working, making sure everything went smoothly. The staff all had smiles on their faces and made a great atmosphere. We had so many lovely comments on the beautiful venue and food. Wish we could do it all over again, thank you so much!!!!
