About Port Lympne Hotel & Reserve

Port Lympne Hotel & Reserve is Kent’s largest wildlife park.  Home to amazing animals and the county’s only safari experiences, the 600 acre country estate is also an award winning wedding venue, offering couples an incredible location filled with romance, adventure, luxury and glamour.

Situated within one of the most picturesque and unique areas of the County, couples can choose to say their vows and celebrate their special day at a variety of locations around the reserve, ranging from four star luxury at Port Lympne Hotel, to more intimate ceremonies at Giraffe Cottage or the Treehouse Hotel and nature inspired, country style weddings at Bear Lodge.

The Grade 2 Listed Port Lympne Hotel and surrounding gardens provide couples with a choice of indoor and outdoor areas to say their vows, including romantic Italian inspired terraces and the exotic Moroccan Courtyard decorated with handpicked antiques from the souks of Marrakesh.  Indoor options include the muralled reception rooms, or spacious Aspinall Suite.

The hotel can be booked exclusively and the lovely Port Lympne Hotel gardens with colourful borders, statues, water features, fountains and glorious views offer a wonderful backdrop for photographs and unmissable Instagram moments.

Giraffe Cottage, with its pretty cottage garden and incredible views over The African Experience offers couples a charming venue with private ranger guided safari, personal chef and overnight accommodation for eight people, whilst the Treehouse Hotel with views over the rhino paddocks is perfect for a relaxed celebrant led ceremony with a contemporary feel, reflecting the natural surroundings.

Bear Lodge, with its private entrance, parking, spacious clubhouse and overnight glamping accommodation is ideal for natural themed, rustic style weddings with incredible views over the spectacled bear habitat to the coast beyond.

Surrounded by some of the world’s most endangered animals, couples and their guests can enjoy a private safari after their ceremony to see free roaming wild animals or get up close and personal with their favourite animal with an exclusive animal encounter!

 

With a range of completely unique and effortlessly chic overnight accommodation available, couples can opt to spend their first night together, either star gazing at The Bubble, or curling up together in a shepherd’s hut, or even sleeping within a whisker of tigers or lions in a luxury lodge.

Our team will be on hand to help from the very beginning of a couple’s wedding journey and our variety of wedding packages available, including last minute and bespoke options, are designed to make the day run smoothly and suit a variety of budgets.

There’s also a wide variety of special touches available and with menu tastings included in some packages, or dry hire for those who want to bring in their own caterers, it’s easy to see why Port Lympne Hotel & Reserve is a destination of choice for couples looking for a unique venue.

    Amazing

    Nick and I got married here on Saturday and well what can I say. INCREDIBLE! I want to say a huge thank you to all of the staff, the cleaners were so kind and informed me personally when the room was ready, the restaurant staff went above and beyond to make sure my dress was in a safe place, the rangers were on time to pick us up from bear lodge in the morning and for our giraffe encounter and were genuinely excited for us. I want to mention a special thank you to Jess our wedding organiser who’s calm personality is just what I needed!! She has been an absolute star from day one when we booked (which was about a year ago). She replies to all my questions, and believe me I do go on and on! The day was 10000% better than I expected, I thought I was going to be stressed the whole day but nope not at all! Not to mention how absolutely stunning the venue is! We are lucky it didnt rain but if it had done you have no worries, its stunning in every room. I honestly cannot recommend having your wedding here enough, they were so so accommodating and we will definitely be spending every anniversary here that is for sure! I want the day to happen 100 times over again! Thank you so so so much it really was the best day of our lives xxx

    Wonderful

    Hi Jess,
    We had the most amazing day! Absolutely perfect. The weather was incredible and the hotel and grounds just shone! We were so so happy and couldn’t have dreamed it would go so well. Thank you to you and your whole team - amazing. After the first hour of sheer panic I was able to relax and enjoy the whole thing - from the ceremony onwards I had the best time and Maz did too!

    I hope everything was cleared up ok? My aunt and uncle and mum were left with instructions! We’ve arrived in Inverness after catching the sleeper! All went to plan.

    Thanks so much again - incredible
    All the best
    Liz and Maz xx

    Thank you

    Hi Jess,

    Ben and I just wanted to thank you and all of the staff at Port Lympne for helping us to have such a magical wedding day. We loved every minute of it and really did have the best day ever.

    We have many happy memories to take away from the day and all of our guests commented on the venues location, the efficiency of the staff and the good food that we enjoyed.

    We will definitely be back to stay at some point. Thank you again.

    Kind regards,

    Hannah and Ben
