The Old Kent Barn is a multi-award winning venue (including 2 National accolades) situated in the glorious Kent countryside. Family owned and run since 2005, The Old Kent Barn offers exclusive use for you and your guests along with calm, precise and supportive management of your day. Mouth-watering and memorable dishes from our in-house kitchen along with our renowned attention to detail from our expert team.
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, so guests can enjoy their surroundings in the evening. Day guest capacity 150 – Evening total guest capacity 250.
