Nestled in a beautiful valley in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Beauty and surrounded by 25 acres of farmland, The Oak Barn wedding venue in Kent is a sympathetically restored, grade II listed 18th century threshing barn located at the heart of a traditional Kentish farmstead that gives you every modern convenience in a beautifully rustic building that is perfect in all seasons.

Countryside Haven

Available for exclusive use only, The Oak Barn is a stunning, versatile DIY wedding venue that retains all its glorious historic features including a magnificent high vaulted roof, amazing views of the surrounding countryside, the latest sound and lighting system, and a cosy wood burning stove.

The courtyard between The Oak Barn and Weaver’s Cottages provides an ideal area for your drinks reception, and if additional space is required for dining, a small marquee can be added on the south side of the barn.

The Byre is a small, elegant barn with breathtaking views down the valley and is ideal for ceremonies or renewal of vows. Glass doors now enclose what was an open fronted animal shelter and after your ceremony you can enjoy a celebratory drink on the terrace and around the lily pond.

Accommodation

The farm’s Weaver’s Cottages comprise one, one-bed cottage, and four two-bed cottages. Each one has been carefully restored and converted into luxury accommodation that sleeps up to 18 guests. A carved tie beam dates construction of these cottages to 1607, during the heyday of the Kent wool trade.

Eco Friendly

The farm runs with a strong environmental purpose and is close to being carbon neutral; all heating and hot water is provided by biomass fuel and surplus electricity is created from its solar pv panels.

“We are a new venue and have undergone a three year restoration of these magnificent grade II listed buildings to create a spectacular location for everyone to enjoy on the most important day in their lives. Our green aspirations, high tech facilities and warm, personal service form the basis of every successful wedding we hold here.”-Deana Maw, owner
