If you are looking for a beautiful and unusual woodland venue with a variety of options, then Little Gate Farm is the place for you. We have 40 acres of unspoilt woods together with beautiful hand built rustic buildings for you and your guests to unwind and enjoy what we have to offer.
Whether you want a fairy-tale wedding with a festival vibe, to renew your vows or to remember a loved one we can provide what you want, taking away all the stresses and strains.
Not only can we provide a beautiful venue for the day but we can also provide a kids club service to help them and you enjoy your time with us.
Our rustic Barn forms a fantastic central hub giving you a glorious tree studded spot to start your ceremony. The barn has a beautiful open space in front and a quirky bar area where you will be served by our fabulous trainees. We can provide velvet comfy chairs for the main party with haybales with covers for the rest of the guests. There is also a mezzanine area.
We have a great camping field for your guests to really bring home that festival feeling. We are unable to provide tents but can put you in touch with some great suppliers so you can choose exactly what you want.
We can tailor the event to suit you. It is worth noting that we can provide a catering service including a bar that will be staffed by our wonderful trainees from the farm. You can of course source your own caterer and drink supplier (we would charge corkage in that instance). Our trainees would serve this from the bar. Below you can find out more about our mission and our trainees
We are happy to supply you with details of providers of additional services.
More about what we do and how we prepare trainees for your special event
Our mission is to help people with learning disabilities and autism into paid work.
We do this through our Supported Work Training Programme, finding Supported Employment and Supported Apprenticeship opportunities, and continuing to support both our trainees and their employers throughout their career.
At the beginning of each season we invite our trainees to apply for our wedding and other event roles. This may be working behind the bar, serving food and making sure our guests are happy. We will interview interested trainees and make our selection based on their skills and strengths. This will be followed by a 6-week training programme at the farm to ensure they are the best they can be. Each trainee will be supported by one of our talented job coaches who will have spent time building a relationship with them.
They will be paid for working at your event giving them a real sense of pride and achievement.
