About Nettlestead Place

Nettlestead, Maidstone Road, Nettlestead
Kent, ME18 5HA

Nettlestead Place is a medieval manor listed in the Domesday Book of 1086 set in the heart of Kent. It has for centuries staged lavish celebrations and is now exclusively available for weddings and other celebrations.

The 14th century gatehouse stands to the west of the manor at the start of the private drive and is an impressive entrance for the bridal party. St Mary's Church is the neighbouring church and just a 5 minute walk to Nettlestead Place.

Nettlestead Place offers an exclusive unique English country setting with award winning gardens, striking medieval manor, a location that is genuinely a perfect wedding venue. The manor is steeped in history and is still a family home but it can be exclusively used for weddings. It is a true gem of a venue! 

The 13th century Undercroft is a truly unique location for wedding ceremonies and is characterised by 3 medieval pillars. An historic and striking setting for such an important occasion. The Undercroft can seat up to 120 guests. For couples wanting to marry outside our stunning Rose Garden is the location for outdoor ceremonies. The beautiful hexagonal cedar wood Gazebo sitting at the base of a 300 year old Lime tree and surrounded by rose trees is the perfect setting for an outside ceremony. The aromas and the beauty of the rose garden make this a truly romantic setting.

After the wedding ceremony guests can enjoy champagne and canapes on the broad terraces overlooking the manors sunken pond and rolling valleys of Kents countryside.  The celebrations can continue as guests can wander through the idyllic gardens, famous throughout Europe, across manicured lawns, paths and water features, surveying the beautiful Kent countryside on their way to the wedding marquee.

Our exclusive wedding marquee overs amazing views over the valley and gardens and can accommodate up to 150 day guests and 200 evening guests for wedding receptions. The beautifully decorated wedding marquee offers couples an opportunity to theme and decorate to their own style and taste.

Massive Thank You
Venue Service

By Natalie Crispe, on 27 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 16 Sep 2017

A massive thank you to you Sharon for all of your help in making our day as amazing as it was.

My perfect wedding
Venue Service

By Kirsty and John Howard, on 08 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 02 Sep 2017

Nettlestead Place was our dream venue, we knew instantly from the moment we looked around the place on a dreary January day. Sharon met with us and shared the stunning photos of previous weddings and the plans for their gazebo in the rose garden which was built this year. Sharon instilled us with confidence and reassurance that nothing was too much trouble and she really is super organised! Our wedding day was the perfect day and everything was seamless. It really is the most gorgeous venue if you're looking for a Kent country garden wedding.

Amazing day

Best Wedding ever
Venue Service

By Sarah Marsden, on 18 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 19 Aug 2017

We had a fantastic weekend. Our guests continue to message us about how beautiful the wedding was and we've even had some comments that it was the best wedding ever! I can certainly say that was the case for me and my new husband! Thank you for reminding me to slow down as I charged up the aisle! Thank you for your help and guidance in trying to get our wedding day just the way we wanted it.

Perfect wedding day....

Thank you so much for being such an amazing wedding planner and making our day as perfect as possible. You even arranged for the sun to shine on the venue where there was rain everywhere else…how do you do that?! we thank you so much Sharon for making our day as perfect as possible and for you being as helpful as you were.

Beautiful Magical Wedding Venue
Venue Service

By Zoe Murray, on 07 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 01 Jul 2017

We chose Nettlestead as our reception venue for our Wedding in July. Our photographer recommended it to us and when we walked into the stunning gardens, we fell in love. From our very first visit to the day of the wedding, the service provided by Sharon was impeccable and nothing was too much trouble. Sharon was very enthusiastic about our plans, supportive with supplier suggestions and was generally a superstar. There is the option to hold the ceremony at Nettlestead too, we chose to have a church ceremony so did not do this, but the options available are very pretty - the Rose Garden and the Undercroft are lovely. Our reception was in the marquee, which can be opened up completely on one side, offering beautiful views across the countryside. I can't recommend the venue enough, it was really special and we have had so many compliments about our day.

Wonderful Wedding Day from the Mother of the Bride
Venue Service

By Joanna Gowlett, on 10 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 24 Jun 2017

Thanks so much for your help on Saturday especially as you were barely back from your holiday Sharon ! We had a really lovely day and appreciated being left to sort everything as we liked. We felt very much at home in the big bedroom getting ready and having our pre nup picnic. The undercroft was stunning and the registrars could not have been more helpful and friendly, really entering into the relaxed spirit of the ceremony. The marquee looked lovely - Suzanne did us proud with the flowers. I hope the ceili music and dancing didn't resound too loudly through the whole of Nettlestead- it was extremely boisterous and huge fun! All the guests thought the venue was absolutely gorgeous- I wish I'd had time to do more exploring myself; I expect we'll come to one of your open garden events to have a good look around.
