The Kentish Barn

The barn is a beautiful 18th century oak-beamed backdrop to your special day.


The barn is licensed by Kent County Council for civil ceremonies and can seat up to 200 guests.

Bringing your day to life...

The barn can seat up to 120 guests for a wedding breakfast.

Many couples bring in a marquee on the field directly behind the barn, creating different spaces for use throughout the day. This gives the ability to reset the barn for the evening whilst the wedding breakfast takes place.

Round tables and banqueting chairs are included in the hire price but you are equally welcome to bring your own preferred furniture.

The barn can be decorated as you wish, to bring your vision to fruition (providing it isn't to the detriment of the historic building). Our friendly team will talk through your plans and make suggestions based on our exerience of past events.

The courtyard and field space provide large areas for outside activities to keep your guests entertained. Previous events have included rides, bouncy castles, stalls, barbeques and more. Onsite we have equipment available for hire including giant garden games.

Frequently asked questions

We've answered some of the most common questions about weddings at Lower Grange Farm below.

If you can't find the answer you are looking for, please contact us.

Access is normally provided from 12pm on the day before your wedding for setting up through to 2pm on the day after for clearing up.

In the leadup to your big day you can arrange visits as required to help with the planning and invite suppliers to the venue to see the site.

The venue is offered as a 'dry hire' meaning that we don't provide food or drink services. This allows you to bring in your own choice of caterers, bar provider - or arrange yourself where preferred.

We have a fully equipped catering kitchen which can be used by your caterers to prepare and serve.

There is no corkage charge.

For the benefit of our neighbours and to comply with our licence, all entertainment must finish by 11pm (outside entertainment by 10.30pm).

Unless staying overnight, vehicles should have left by 12 midnight.

Due to the surrounding neighbours, farmland and animals, we don't allow fireworks or chinese lanterns.


If you wish for your guests to throw confetti we request they use bio-degradable confetti which is better for the environment and the surrounding farmland.

Yes of course.

We especially encourage suppliers who haven't used the site before to come down so that they can familiarise themselves with the layout and check logistics like power and water.

Just let us know in advance so that we can make sure that the relevant areas are available and open for your visit.
