A wedding venue, exclusively for you

We’re incredibly proud of our country wedding venue and would love to show you around. Please enjoy looking at the following information and then contact us to make an appointment to view our world!

Our 16th and 17th century inn and barn are situated to the west of Kent in the Garden of England! We are surrounded by peaceful countryside yet conveniently close to the motorway network for easy access.

The Barn is peg tiled, beamed and beautiful with minstrels’ gallery, oak floor and wood burning stoves for the chillier times of year. A fully stocked bar is set for every occasion with a hatch opening into the garden for summer access.

Both The Barn and our garden hedgerow gazebo are licensed for your civil wedding ceremony or simply available for your wedding reception and evening celebrations.

A little something for everyone

Our country gardens are extensive and a magical backdrop for your photos. Picturesque cottage garden flowers surround areas for your summer time celebration. Any attending children will love our play area and exploration possibilities.

The traditional Kentish hop hung pub, with its inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove, makes a wonderful winter wedding reception area. Kentish Ales from local breweries are worshipped here!

Our barn is perfect for up to 150 guests at a formally seated summer wedding, 130 guests during the winter months and the whole venue is available for up to 200 guests at a less formal celebration.

The food we serve is prepared with a great deal of thought and planning, cooked from seasonal ingredients by a team led by Hazel, a chef and foodie.
