The Barn .... a more personal Wedding Venue
The Barn is unique in many ways not least in that it has been rebuilt from a centuries old Elizabethan barn which was originally constructed in a Kent village and re-erected on its present site some years ago. It reflects the traditional Kentish style with oak beams and columns and this creates a truly wonderful atmosphere, just perfect for a wedding venue.
We can offer the sole and exclusive use of our entire venue and gardens with absolutely no venue or reception hire charges. Fully inclusive packages start from £2,995 for 50 guests.
We are licensed for civil ceremonies which are held in our beautiful new Orangery overlooking the lovely award winning courtyard style gardens. During warmer months the windows open out allowing the outside in.
Guests are seated in the pretty and atmospheric restaurant for the wedding breakfast and uniquely given a choice of menu for each course. As your wedding day is such a celebration our inclusive drinks package includes Champagne as standard and at no extra cost.
We can accommodate up to 150 guests for the evening reception and as dusk falls the venue and gardens are illuminated with an abundance of twinkling lights to give a truly romantic backdrop for your celebrations.
Philippe, the General Manager of over 25 years fully understands that there is no more important event than that of your wedding day. He offers a wealth of experience and friendliness to all his couples and everyone becomes part of the family throughout the planning process.
We are passionate about weddings and are proud winners of the 2019 Kent Wedding Awards having previously won this prestigious award in 2016 and 2013.
Philippe would really love to meet with you and show you how The Barn could be the perfect venue for you, so please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Amazing value for money
We had our wedding at The Barn on 25.8.19 and it was a fantastic day!Sent on 23/04/2020
Phillippe, Janet and the whole team went above and beyond to give us our perfect day in 31°c temperatures.
So many of our guests have complimented us on the food and the relaxed nature of the venue. The wedding breakfast was amazing and the wine was gorgeous and flowing very generously.
Everyone LOVED the evening BBQ, we’ve heard some guests had 4 burgers as they were just so tasty! It was set up beautifully with our decorations and flowers and the garden looked beautiful as always. Nothing was too much trouble for them (including building our cake stand and setting up a doughnut tower with 2 tier cake on top!) and it was so reassuring throughout the whole process knowing that Janet would answer any query almost immediately!
Luke Swift the resident DJ was also brilliant, even doing a kid’s disco and dance competition and doing an amazing job of our requested UK Garage hour!
We are so pleased we chose to hold our wedding at The Barn and would recommend it to any couple considering it for their wedding, especially as their offering is the most amazing value for money too. They even gave us a box with all the leftover wine from our wedding breakfast, so I got over the post wedding comedown by remaining pleasantly sozzled for a fortnight! Thank you, so much!
