What Makes Us Unique
In a nutshell
Port Lympne Hotel & Reserve is Kent’s largest wildlife reserve, set within 600 acres of magnificent private parkland and home to 900 wild endangered animals.
The reserve’s centrepiece, the Grade II* listed Port Lympne Mansion, surrounded by 14 acres of landscaped gardens, is regarded as one of England’s finest country houses. Overlooking the dramatic expanse of Romney Marsh and the English Channel, it has entertained royalty, aristocracy, prominent politicians and playwrights for over a century, welcoming notable guests, including Charlie Chaplin, the Prince of Wales, Lord Mountbatten, Sir Winston Churchill and T.E. Lawrence.
The ceremony will be hosted in one of our licensed areas, including the new glass orangery, the stunning new pergola, the quintessentially English-tiered and walled gardens, the dramatic Moroccan Courtyard, or the elegant Iceberg Terrace.
Our setting remains unique: one where couples can wed surrounded by hundreds of rare and endangered animals, knowing that their event supports wildlife protection in the UK.
The wedding party can enjoy a delectable wedding breakfast and evening reception in the opulent mansion rooms, or opt for a banquet in the enchanting Orangery, which includes its own fully incorporated kitchen for all fine dining requirements.Menus are curated from locally-sourced ingredients, and we work with many award-winning local vineyards to offer outstanding wine pairing. Inventive dishes celebrate the very best of Kentish produce, with a strong commitment to seasonality and championing local artisan suppliers. All produce is sustainably sourced, with fruit and vegetables fresh from the park’s kitchen garden at Walmestone Growers in Wingham. Being in the heart of English wine country, local wines and Kentish brews wonderfully complement our dishes, and we include Gusbourne sparkling wine in all our packages. Our Events Coordinator can assist couples with everything from bespoke tableware and linen options through to menu design and wine pairings. We can also provide evening buffets, from traditional elegant spreads to something more fun and informal, offering everything from mini burgers through to gourmet cheese boards and sweet treats.
