Emily and Huw, who looked after my son's wedding, are simply amazing. Though young, they are completely professional and on top of things. I had no doubt in my mind, after meeting Emily at a pre-wedding meeting, that things would go perfectly. She instilled such a sense of confidence that I was confident that she knew exactly what she was... More

Our wedding was always going to be a simple affair with minimal planning, so we decided it was best to do this abroad until someone suggested we saw The Old Kent Barn, so we did and we never looked back. My husband and I were completely blown away by the Barn so much so, we opted to get married this... More

My daughter chose this venue for her wedding, and last Saturday her dream came true when from start to finish her day was perfect, but this is only part of the story. Wedding preparations often begin a long time before 'the big day itself,' and I can honestly say that Hilary, Roger and the team gave her every confidence that... More

My husband and I got married at The Old Kent Barn on 3rd August, we could not have wished for a more perfect day. The venue itself is stunning and all of our guests were blown away by it, but the real selling point are Hilary, Claire and everyone else at the barn. Their calm nature and organisation helped our...

Wow, the old Kent barn is a superb venue for a wedding. My daughter and son in law were married there last Saturday and I cannot thank Hilary and the team enough. The day was absolutely perfect due to the calmness, efficiency and organisation of all the staff. It is the most beautiful venue ever, all a bride and her... More

On the 21st August my daughter & son in law held there wedding service & reception at The Old Kent Barn. The lead up to the day was made so much easier by Hilary & Roger. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Their attention to detail & our needs was unbelievable. They genuinely wanted my daughter & son in... More

The venue itself is rather lovely, but I was at a wedding the other day & my clutch bag got stolen at the reception! Staff were reluctant to help, we asked to view the CCTV & they kept fobbing us off with excuses. No one offered to help search for the lost bag which held money, cards & other personal... More

Dear Bonnie, We certainly take seriously the comments you have made about our venue and the lack of response from ourselves. We were in conversation with your close family and friends from the time you reported the loss of your handbag (about 7.30pm) and explained to them that we would look at the cameras as soon as we could. The... More

What a beautiful venue, went for a family wedding and it was perfect, fantastic service, lovely staff, great food. My son is quite fussy, and although the food was lovely, he does not like sauces etc. I explained to the lady and she went off and got him some plain chicken and rice, which he loved- made such a difference-...

As a Venue for any Celebration this Venue would struggle to provide and more to make yojr experience more special. The location, venue, staff, provision, food, you name it; is exquisit and standards are through the roof! Service, and detail is beyond regimentally perfect and doubt one woulx find somethingmto complain about.

Stayed here for my sisters wedding in May 2012, great nights sleep, lovely breakfast and the owners treat you like family, nothing was too much trouble (and I can be awkward!). Also a fantastic venue for a wedding, beautiful surroundings and the barn is beautiful. Only "niggle" we had is that the room (where technically being in the loft) was... More
