Full Description
Tucked away down Tea Garden Lane by the edge of the woods but close to the heart of Tunbridge Wells, The Beacon is set within seventeen acres of gardens, woodlands and lakes and perched high on the ridge overlooking Happy Valley, this former Arts and Crafts private residence has breath-taking views all year round. With options for exclusive-use of the house and grounds for the day, The Beacon is fully licensed for weddings and offers a naturally abundant and generous home to celebrate in. With two function rooms, terrace dining, a blooming rose garden, the Amphitheatre and the Grand Pavilion, The Beacon provides spacious private areas for your celebration, complete with homely aesthetics and sweeping views. The Beacon is the ultimate house party, wonderful for an exclusive-use wedding of feasting, partying and fun. On the day of your wedding, your guests assemble on the terrace to enjoy panoramic views of the stunning Kent countryside as well as perfect viewing down to the Amphitheatre and Grand Pavilion; a sneak preview of the celebrations to come. They then take their seats for an intimate and aesthetically striking ceremony in the Amphitheatre. With its rustic wooden build, classic features and beautiful natural backdrop, this stage makes a charming setting for exchanging your vows. The wood panelled tiered auditorium ensures that every guest enjoys a front row seat for the nuptials. Following your ceremony, where better to enjoy your wedding breakfast than in our custom made Grand Pavilion, complete with wood floor paneling and beams. Enjoy a bespoke catering package for your day, tailored towards your specific needs and tastes. Vows exchanged, feasts devoured and photos taken, it’s time to remove the jackets, kick off the shoes, and really start celebrating! Dancing in the Cellar commences, accompanied by a bar and late night snacks. And for anyone in need of a rest, there’s space to cool off on the terrace as the sun goes down.

Best Wedding!
Thank you so much for all your help pre and during our wedding day. Your attention to detail and great timing ensured that we could have a stress free wedding day and enjoy the festivities. We really had a fairy tale wedding: the venue and the tiered system were beautiful, the food and service were fantastic. Please let the team know that we really appreciated all their help! Not only were they attentive and professional, but always had a smile on their face and went above and beyond to make us and our wedding guests feel welcome. More than one family member said that this was the best wedding they have ever been to!

Amazing staff & beautiful day
I wanted to write to congratulate you on your amazing staff and to let you know how beautifully they looked after us at our wedding on Friday. Despite the weather, Anne kept her calm and great communication in keeping us informed about the choices right up until the last minute. The venue was perfect for the day and all our guests commented on how wonderful the setting and wedding breakfast was. I cannot praise the professionalism and grace highly enough. Your staff are truly a credit. Thank you very much for the opportunity and we look forward to many more occasions at The Beacon.
