Hoad Farm Barn is a rustic wedding venue set in the peaceful village of Acrise near Folkestone, Kent. Family-owned and -operated, this setting was carefully designed to give couples a beautiful, relaxed retreat to enjoy their wedding weekend. The newly converted barn, eco-friendly practices, and lush forest surroundings will ensure that your big day has a naturally stunning backdrop.

Facilities and Capacity

Hoad Farm Barn is run by Shirley McCrystal, along with her sister and niece, Valerie and Bronwyn, who work to give visitors a memorable, peaceful stay. With structures dating back to the 13th century, their property features a blend of old, vintage charm and modern, quirky twists. The venue's main setting is the barn area, which sports an industrial loft theme with rustic touches. Up to 100 guests can be comfortably seated under the high, vaulted ceiling, metal chandeliers, and large windows for a bright, airy setting. An upstairs loft area is also present, allowing you and your partner to enjoy a birds-eye view of your celebration. Outside the doors are a spacious BBQ area, lush fields and ponds, and an adorable bridge that makes for a stunning photo location. Parking is available onsite, with wheelchair accessibility to ensure everyone arrives at the venue with ease.

Service Offered

As a pet-friendly venue, Hoad Farm Barn welcomes couples to incorporate their four-legged friends into their celebration, from dog companions to horse baraats. The team offers a variety of packages, which can be tailored to suit your needs, wants, and budget. Their in-house event coordinator can also be available to help you organise and prepare for your big day. In addition, the grounds feature multiple holiday cottages, where you and your guests can enjoy a relaxing wedding weekend and overnight stay.
