Full Description
Nettlestead Place is a medieval manor listed in the Domesday Book of 1086 set in the heart of Kent. It has for centuries staged lavish celebrations and is now exclusively available for weddings and other celebrations. The 14th century gatehouse stands to the west of the manor at the start of the private drive and is an impressive entrance for the bridal party. St Mary's Church is the neighbouring church and just a 5 minute walk to Nettlestead Place. Nettlestead Place offers an exclusive unique English country setting with award winning gardens, striking medieval manor, a location that is genuinely a perfect wedding venue. The manor is steeped in history and is still a family home but it can be exclusively used for weddings. It is a true gem of a venue! The 13th century Undercroft is a truly unique location for wedding ceremonies and is characterised by 3 medieval pillars. An historic and striking setting for such an important occasion. The Undercroft can seat up to 120 guests. The stunning Rose Garden is the setting for outdoor ceremonies, with a wooden Gazebo sitting at the base of a large lime tree. The aromas and the beauty of the rose garden make this a truly romantic setting. After the wedding ceremony guests can enjoy champagne and canapes on the broad terraces overlooking the manors sunken pond. The celebrations can continue as guests can wander through the idyllic gardens, famous throughout Europe, across manicured lawns, paths and water features, surveying the beautiful Kent countryside on their way to the wedding marquee.

Fantastic venue and beautiful setting
Me and my partner got married here in May 2022 and had the most fantastic day. All of our guests absolutely loved it too. The gardens are beautiful and such a romantic setting to get married in! Would highly recommend getting married in the rose garden if the weather allows, you will not regret it!

It was a beautiful and memorable day, and this is a wonderful venue.
Our daughter was married at Nettlestead Place on 11 September. It was a beautiful and memorable day, and this is a wonderful venue. The undercroft is an intimate setting for the ceremony and perfect for the number of guests we had. There is a sense of formality about it which is important, but it’s not overbearing. It was just right for what my daughter wanted. The gardens are beautifully kept. There are plenty of settings for photos, and I noticed quite a few of our guests just wandering round enjoying the surroundings. It really is a lovely place. It is true that we were very fortunate with the weather, but there are rainy day options for photos too. The marquee worked really well for the meal and the band afterwards. The food service all went very well, including for the evening buffet. Everyone I managed to speak to really enjoyed the day as much as we did, so thanks to Sharon and the various suppliers for helping to make the event a success.
