The Old Kent Barn is a 200-year-old oak-framed tythe barn bursting with character and is home to the venue’s recently refurbished accommodation complete with stylish newlywed suite and two additional double en suite rooms.
The grounds that surround the barns are professionally landscaped and feature formal parterres with seasonal blooms, curved hedges and an informal water garden all set against a backdrop of mature trees and countryside. The illumination collection now features six locations within the gardens and grounds, including fairylit and festoon areas.
WHERE TO WED
The gazebo, 150 guests
Ceremonies take place in the gazebo, which sits in the gorgeous grounds and offers panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. The whole area is conveniently paved where your guests can sit in comfort beneath elegant glass pergolas protecting them from both rain and sun.
The New Barn, 150 day and 250 evening guests
In the winter, you’ll marry instead in the New Barn. Ivory drapes create a beautifully intimate ceremony space, with bespoke wooden benches to seat your guests. This gorgeous space is used for receptions too, and is simultaneously opulent and neutral to coordinate with any colour palette or theme, it can be dressed in so many ways. Oak-framed and open plan, with large windows and a light tiled floor, it also features a wooden dancefloor, while the starlit ceiling guides you onto it for your first dance.
You’ll be offered a complimentary tasting experience, dressing services and support in the on-site dressing rooms and a stay in the newlyweds’ suite in the on-site five-star bed and breakfast in the Old Barn.
