Set in the Kent countryside, The Night Yard is an unusual venue with plenty of character but with modern amenities. It originally started as a ‘night yard’ housing the dairy herd sleeping quarters and has been transformed into a beautiful wedding venue. Dress it up if you want or simply admire the character of the space. The Night Yard offers complete exclusivity for the day of your wedding and the flexibility to really create Your Day. We can accommodate up to 240 guests (utilising both the indoor & outdoor spaces).
The Night Yard is a quirky barn with a centralised courtyard. The courtyard houses a clear sided marquee and is edged by cloistered barns. The acoustics are fantastic for live music, which can often bring a festival vibe to Your Day.
We appreciate that as every couple is different there is no set structure to how Your Day should run. However our team of wedding coordinators work with you to advise and make suggestions and help you coordinate Your Day.

As soon as we stepped into the venue on our first
They say a bride just knows and it feels right when she finds the dress, well we got this feeling with our Venue! As soon as we stepped into the venue on our first viewing we knew it was for us, our kids instantly ran off to explore leaving us feeling confident this was the perfect venue for our relaxed child filled wedding. I love how the venue can be dressed completely to suit your style, but then is beautiful and rustic as it is. The planning journey was well organised and reassuring as Courtney and the rest of the team had it all in hand. You don’t feel like just another booking, it was always nice to catch up. Thank you, especially Courtney you helped bring our vision to life, we just want to relive it again and again!Sent on 27/06/2019

This is a most sincere Thank You
This is a most sincere Thank You for hosting such a perfect day for us. Our wedding was absolutely perfect...The Night Yard as our chosen venue was complimented by every guest as the most beautiful and relaxed environment for such an occasion which we agree wholeheartedly.Sent on 16/10/2018
Ed and I appreciated Courtney's help so much. Courtney...you were outstanding and went above and beyond...looking after our chorus singing dog when he threatened to drown out the ceremony...distracting the children whilst we were decorating...adjusting the climate control to accommodate our guest's needs...everything you did was appreciated so very much.
Our wedding was the happiest day we have had, and The Night Yard made it happen.
So again...Thank you. We thoroughly recommend you all for anyone wanting to hire a venue as the perfect choice.

The most incredible place!
When we discovered The Night Yard online we had a feeling it was going to be something very special. From visiting, we fell in love with it.Sent on 03/01/2019
The Night Yard offers the most amazing space and even with quite a lot of rain on the day on the day every contingency was thought of by the team!
Courtney, Nancy and all of The Night Yard team were hugely supportive throughout our planning process and had an incredible list of contacts who could facilitate every aspect of what we wanted to pull together.
It was clear - whether it be correspondence via email, conversations on the phone or as a face-to-face meeting - that the team knew what we were after. Their help and advice throughout was second-to-none.
Our wedding was the most incredible day and so many people commented on how wonderful The Night Yard was as a venue.
The Night Yard really really is a hugely special venue.
Now, just to figure out how we can do it all over again!
