The Essex Barn at the Channels Estate has had a few improvements in the last few month. These have taken the venue to the next level. With 21 gorgeous bedrooms, stunning outside ceremony garden and 17th century Essex Barn, it made my daughters wedding day a truly wonderful experience. Thank you to Paul, David, Emma & Samantha for going the extra mile at every stage.

I recently attended a wedding at Channels, The day was perfect. I wished I had booked this venue before my cousin!! The wedding garden is so unique with Church Pews and excellent sound system... and having viewed over 10 venues in Essex its most definitely the best venue around.

My daughters wedding was at Channels last week, even though I thanked the staff personally, I just wanted to write a review so everyone else who was involved gets to know how pleased we were. The setting, the food and the service was impeccable. We were very impressed and recommend the Channels Estate to any newly engaged couples.
