Swarling Manor is set back to give you this peaceful haven to enjoy your special day. You can really add your own flare to this venue but everything Gina offers, even down to the little touches is perfect. The grounds are beautiful and with the space provided everyone can enjoy the day, especially children. It is an amazing venue and I am over joyed that we came across this hidden gem. There is also local accommodation near by making the bridal parties journey a simple walk which is perfect! Could not recommenced this place enough, hopefully I'll be able to attend as a guest one day!!

The venue is set just back from the main road meaning you have this quiet haven to enjoy your day. The grounds are breathtaking and everything offered by Gina just created the perfect day for us. It is an outstanding venue, there is local accommodation perfect for the wedding party. It’s the perfect venue for children as they have so much space to roam. Everyone we’ve spoken to mentioned how much fun they had and how great the venue was. It is a perfect venue for any occasion and I am over joyed that we found this hidden gem!

Perfect Place to get Married

My Husband and I got Married at Swarling Manor in August 2017 and it was the most perfect day in the such a beautiful setting, we couldn't have asked for better! Our circumstances were sadly unfortunate due to my Mum being diagnosed with a terminal illness we wanted to get married asap, leaving only 5 weeks to plan the Wedding. I can honestly say that all this would not have been possible without Gina, she was so helpful and sorted everything and nothing was too much trouble! The day ran very smoothly with no problems. If you are looking to get married in Kent i would highly recommend Swarling Manor!

Incredible venue and amazing staff

Could not recommend a more beautiful venue with the most helpful staff. Stunning pictures were taken at our day and everything was perfect

You can make this venue your own

We viewed this venue along with many others and this was the only place where I believe you can either have a very simply un fussy wedding or add on all your own extras and make it completely yours. The barn where the wedding take place has hops on the beams and there is a permanent marquee (summer months) which has a wooden floor, swags and lighting. You can put tealights all around the edges of the barn for the evening etc. You use your own caterers, provide your own wine (no corkage fee) It has the manor house grounds for photos. You can make this exactly what you want.
