The Old Kent Barn Full Description
We pride ourselves on the quality and warmth of the service we offer, and we personally work tirelessly with our staff to ensure your wedding is perfect in every way for you, your family and your guests. Set in an idyllic rural location, there are 2 barns on site; a purpose-built 110ft oak framed barn for indoor weddings and receptions and the original 'Old' barn for accommodation which was built over 225 years ago. The barns are set in manicured landscaped grounds and surrounded by picturesque Kent countryside making it the perfect backdrop.

The 2 ½ acre gardens, with formal parterres, are planted with romantic roses, sweeping curved hedges and an informal lake garden with a lit fountain all set against a backdrop of mature trees. Dedicated gardeners are here on a daily basis.

The paved seating area for outdoor ceremonies has a rose and wisteria covered aisle along with a canopy to shelter up to 150 guests. Both indoor and outdoor ceremony areas have a high quality sound system so all your guests can hear the ceremony clearly. Atmospheric up-lights and fairy lights have been placed throughout the grounds, both you and your guests can enjoy their surroundings into the evening.
