Incredible Venue!

We had the pleasure of celebrating our Wedding at the beautiful Chidham Barn on August Bank Holiday. The rustic barn, the field and the views were all incredible. Not only did our guests compliment the venue, but even our caterers commented on the set up and location. Being allowed to hire the barn from the Friday to Sunday was a huge benefit, it allowed us time to set up and decorate the barn with little to no stress. Susan was so helpful and supportive throughout every stage of planning. Her knowledge and expertise were invaluable. For any couples looking for a beautiful rustic barn with gorgeous views, you will not regret viewing and booking Chidham Barn! 😊
