New venue alert! Chapel House Estate, Thanet

Chapel House Estate in Thanet, East Kent, once a private family home, has been redesigned as an exclusive-use luxury wedding venue due to open in the spring. The Estate blends seamlessly into the surrounding Kentish farmland, less than a mile from the picturesque coast. The reinstated north drive will provide the main access via a private, gated entrance and the team will greet guests at reception where they'll be able to check into their accommodation before heading off to explore. Offering a limited number of exclusive, destination weekend and intimate weekday weddings, Chapel House will provide a memorable experience for couples and guests alike.

Just picture it: as part of the private stay on the eve of the wedding, you and your immediate guests will be served drinks in the courtyard before enjoying supper together from one of the seasonally designed menus, showcasing the very best of Kentish produce for an inclusive vegan, vegetarian dining experience at the chef's table.

The Estate offers varied opportunities for the wedding ceremony itself, including the Wild Apple Orchard and the Walled Courtyard, which can seat up to 60 guests, while the former is large enough for 120. The Old Malt Granary is licensed for indoor weddings. A banqueting barn is being built next to it, a few steps from the ceremony to the drinks reception and wedding breakfast. For those wishing to take advantage of more intimate “I dos,” Chapel House's vaulted receiving room is licensed for 15 people.

Chapel House itself is a Grade II listed building dating back to 1290, and is the centrepiece of the Estate. It now provides a beautifully styled master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, complemented by a dressing room with bathroom and two attic bedrooms also with en suites. A large modern kitchen and two lounge areas offer the perfect spaces for entertaining. In addition , the south west paddock will house 10 private lodgings and a 24-hour on site concierge service will ensure guest needs are catered for, no matter the hour.
