The Old Kent Barn is a multi-award winning venue (including 2 National accolades) situated in the glorious Kent countryside. Family owned and run since 2005, The Old Kent Barn offers exclusive use for you and your guests along with calm, precise and supportive management of your day.
There are 2 barns on site; a purpose-built open plan oak framed barn for indoor weddings and receptions for up to 150 guests and the original 'Old' barn for accommodation, built over 225 years ago.
The barns are set in manicured landscaped grounds and surrounded by picturesque Kent countryside making it the perfect backdrop. The 2 ½ acre gardens, with formal parterres, are planted with romantic roses, sweeping curved hedges and an informal lake garden with a lit fountain all set against a backdrop of mature trees. Dedicated gardeners are here on a daily basis.
The paved seating area for outdoor ceremonies has a rose and wisteria covered aisle along with glass canopies to accomodate up to 150 guests. Both indoor and outdoor ceremony areas have a high quality sound system so all your guests can hear the ceremony and music clearly.
Mouth-watering and memorable dishes from our in-house kitchen along with our renowned attention to detail from our expert team.
Atmospheric up-lights and fairy lights have been placed throughout the grounds, for you and your guests to enjoy the surroundings in the evening.
We pride ourselves on the quality and warmth of the service we offer, and we personally work tirelessly with our staff to ensure your wedding is perfect in every way for you, your family and your guests.

It is just the most stunning venue
We just wanted to say such a massive 'Thank You' for the absolutely amazing job you all did with our wedding on Saturday.Sent on 09/04/2019
From the moment we walked into The Old Kent Barn to look around a year ago, we absolutely fell in love with it, and when we looked at other venues, none of them matched up. It is just the most stunning venue - we feel incredibly lucky to have had our wedding here.
But what makes it even more special is everyone who works there. You really are such a lovely group of people and it was a real pleasure to share our day with you.
We had the best day of our lives and we are so grateful for everything you have done for us.
