The Ferry House is a charming 16th Century venue, just an hour from London, with 4* accommodation, tucked away in an idyllic ‘secret’ spot alongside the Thames Estuary. Sitting amongst rolling farmland, renowned bird & nature reserves and specially designed wedding gardens, the panoramic views across the water and countryside provide unrivaled backdrops for your day.
We offer bespoke weddings, tailored to each couple, or package weddings, so you can have your perfect day exactly the way you want it. Our dedicated Events Team will take a personal approach to your day and will be on hand to ensure your big day runs smoothly.
We are licensed to hold civil ceremonies in both the Oak Barn or outside in Oak Gazebo for up to 200 guests. To follow the ceremony, you have the choice of hosting your reception in either the Oak Barn, seating up to 70, or our brand new Event Suite seating up to 200.
For the main event (or as we see it, the food!) we offer extensive and varied menus to suit all different styles of weddings. As members of Produced in Kent, we are incredibly proud of the quality of our ingredients; the Lamb and Beef are from our very own family farms, the Game is from our own shoot and all our fresh produce is grown in our on-site Kitchen Garden. The Ferry House Inn was awarded Kent Dining Pub of the Year in 2014 and 2018.
Our Evening Reception options include Barn only receptions for up to 100 guests, Barn and Dancefloor options which include an additional private wedding bar for up to 150 guests or our entire Event Suite is available to use all day to host the wedding breakfast with a dancing area screened off during your meal, which is then revealed in the evening. This option also includes the private wedding bar from after the ceremony and is suitable for up to 300 guests.
To end the day in style and comfort, we have eleven 4* B&B rooms on site for you and your guests; including our Bridal Suite with a super king sized sleigh bed, spa bath, lounge area and views across the wedding Patios, Gardens and Estuary. Wake up to an award-winning local breakfast and reminisce on the day before. Just off-site, we also own Mocketts Farm Cottages, a complex of four 4* self-catered cottages available to book for 30 plus guests. The perfect ‘next-stop’ for family and friends to stay or to make a weekend of things!
Every wedding here is individual and unique. Our couples are welcome to decorate the venue as they please, and Exclusive Hire of the entire venue is available for weddings who would prefer a more private affair. We offer lots of varying add-ons including a family-owned vintage tractor ride to arrive in true country style, dancefloor upgrades and even our own fire-pit with toasted marsh-mellows for the evening!
