What we do

Somewhere Special

It's time to unpack your special outfit, start to relax and enjoy your preparations.  Arrive the day before your wedding with your family and bridesmaids and enjoy a cosy dinner (and maybe an early night?).

.. To Prepare

Have your flowers delivered and your make-up and hair done.  Have your family and bridesmaids join you to help and enjoy your special time together.

.. To Relax.. and enjoy

Enjoy your preparations and a glass of bubbly before you leave for your ceremony.  Return later to continue your celebrations with your family and friends and those closest to you.

Weddings with Accommodation

We pride ourselves in being different.  Our luxurious accommodation, dry-hire barn and three day packages set us apart.. 

Little Tey Barn really is somewhere special..  Somewhere to prepare.. to relax.. to enjoy with those closest to you..

Intimate Micro Weddings

Hosting our first 'weddings for 15' has been the most touching and heart-warming experience and because these weddings are so special we have launched a new website!  We are so pleased to be talking to so many couples who are choosing this as an alternative to their 'BIG' plans.  

Head over to our new website dedicated to smaller weddings



B&J married December 2020:

"Wow where to start with this amazing place!!! I could not recommend Little Tey Barn enough. It is such a beautiful barn and has gorgeous grounds. It’s the perfect spot for a wedding and fantastic that you can add your own stamp with the dry hire option. The owners are just wonderful too! They went out of their way to help us not just in the weeks leading up to the wedding but also on the day itself and day before (and all during a pandemic !!) They basically worked their socks off for us!!! Made a stressful time leading up to the wedding so much easier and calmer and we cannot thank them enough. Jane has lots of recommendations for suppliers too, everything you could want and need for the perfect wedding day, we really felt ours was. If you book this place for your wedding or special event you will not be disappointed! Also the house itself is beautiful, the rooms are decorated to a really high standard and the whole place was exceptionally clean upon arrival (which is especially important now during the pandemic.) The master bedroom has the most amazing bathroom and shower and the beds were very comfy. There is even a hot tub outside! You and your guests will feel so special!! Highly recommend !
