About Marleybrook House

Marleybrook House is an immaculately presented seventeenth century 'chocolate box' thatched Country House full of unique character, history and old world charm. Former home to the legendary international singer, actress and caberet star Eartha Kitt, Marleybrook House is in a secluded location, offering total privacy and exclusivity, yet just seven miles from the city of Canterbury. Nestled within ...five acres, the landscaped gardens, paddocks and woodland provide the perfect setting for a quintessential English Country Wedding.

We are licensed to hold Marriages and Civil Partnership Ceremonies on these premises. These can be held in the formal walled gardens under the stone pillared Gazebo followed by the signing of the register within the house. Alternatively you may wish to hold the ceremony within the Kentish Oak Framed Barn. You and your guests are invited to explore the grounds of this exclusive venue before entering the Grand Marquee for your wedding breakfast and evening reception where the finishings and accessories are of the finest quality. Our country-style bar and function room conveniently adjoins the marquee offering guests further space and comfort to relax and enjoy this wonderful venue for all its character.

Marleybrook House is perfect for weddings all year round providing the prettiest 'picture postcard' backdrop throughout the changing seasons. Winter weddings are also ideal within the cosy feel of this venue as it offers log burning fires and a true christmas feel. With all its features, this venue is a magical winter wedding setting.
Experience the nostalgia of the many features in abundance here including the Oak Framed Barn (situated adjacent to the marquee making it ideal for hog roasts, backdrop for photographs or any unique ideas you may wish to use it for), quirky features such as the original haywain, gypsy caravan, vintage tractor, various carts, butchers bike, red telephone box and much more!
Finish the evening in style and stay in the newly renovated Showman's Caravan that is based on the pullman style carriages currently used on the Orient Express. Further accommodation includes our luxurious Bridal Suite, complete with hot tub on the terrace, offering sumptuous accommodation to enjoy at your leisure. This can accommodate up to six persons making it the ideal place for a pre wedding party with recommended beauty treatments available. Or simply use the comfort of the Bridal Suite for you to get ready on the day.

We pride ourselves in delivering a first class service of the highest standard. Together with your personal dedicated wedding co-ordinator, we are on hand throughout the entire planning process leading up to the day of your wedding thus ensuring your special day is managed seamlessly. We very much look forward to welcoming you to this exciting new venue.

Magical and beautiful!

By Laura ling, on 20 Sep 2014

Both my husband and I fell completely in love with Marleybrook House as soon as we laid eyes on it. It is the most magical venue that I have ever seen. What made it even more special was its owners, they are a lovely and so very helpful. We have booked Marleybrook for a family celebration next year (including the blessing of our marriage) and I am more than excited. We got married at The Old Kent Barn but this venue is better in my opinion! If you are looking for a 'chocolate box' wedding then you have found it. It truly is amazing xx

Our intimate, country wedding

By Paige O'hara, on 14 Apr 2014

Now looking forward to our wedding very much so which is now set in the gorgeous country side. This venue is the perfect combination of classy and rustic, just what we were looking for for our intimate wedding. We are confident the friendly staff will look after us which is a huge weight off my mind.
