Nestling in the sprawling Kentish countryside
I was invited to Chapel House as a local artist with a view to exhibiting some pieces with them. It was my pleasure to have a preview tour of the house and grounds ahead of its launch this year. Nestling in the sprawling Kentish countryside, its peaceful grounds boast a plethora of immaculately kept gardens. Chapel House itself bursts with sumptuous interiors, exquisitely blending modern trends with historic features. This enchanting escape is an absolutely unmissable venue for an unforgettable experience.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

We have to admit we haven't had 'the best wedding' yet - we have however gone from a building site, with mud caked on our shoes to a luxury wedding venue. We hope your wedding grabs the title!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Choosing the perfect venue is our number one wedding planning tip. Choose a venue that gives you outdoor options but the perfect indoor contingency, after all, we live in the UK!

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

Give each of your guests staying in Chapel House or in the overnight Lodges, a handwritten note inviting them to breakfast in the No9 Restaurant at 10:00 the next day. Who can resit a Full English Breakfast after a night on the dance floor!

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

An exclusive-use, luxury, destination venue, with stunning outdoor gardens with everything on site and more!

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

With 35 acres of considered landscaping, stunning gardens, a converted flint wall chapel, a brand new barn and Old Malt House there are so many photo opportunities, but we love the wild apple garden orchard!

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

Now that would be telling!

What’s your favourite canapé?

Arancini, tiny Italian stuffed rice balls, coated with bread crumbs and deep-fried - it's rude not to!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Picky food, like fish and chips in cones - after all, we are on the Kent coast

What is your venue's most unique feature?

A Grade II listed Chapel resides at the heart of the Estate. It has been converted into a three-bedroom 'home' with a honey suite for the couple on their wedding night. It has its private terrace, accessed through the ensuite bathroom.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

Since May 2021, when we purchased the previously residential property, the majority of the works on site are either nearing completion or well underway: - The stunning Chapel House, with three ensuite bedrooms, dressing room, roof terrace and luxuriously appointed ground floor, has been renovated and styled with your every need in mind. - The purpose-built new gazebo in The Wild Orchard and the now converted Old Malt Granary enable you to envisage styling your wedding day, outside or inside, for up to 120 people. - The No9 Restaurant and The Courtyard have been completely remodelled to enable you to start planning your engagement party or wedding anniversary. - The Hideaway Lodges, which sleep up to 18 guests, are well under construction. - Although the purpose-built banqueting Thorne Barn internal works continue, it is now at a stage for you to start thinking about your 'order of the day', who sits next to who, and what menu and drinks to serve throughout your wedding stay. So our proudest moment is going from a mud bath to a beautiful Wedding, Experience and Stay Destination Venue.
