Had my daughter (& now) son in laws wedding there yesterday. It is the perfect venue. The facilities are excellent.

My husband and I cannot put into words how amazing our Wedding day was. Of course it is because it was the happiest day of our lives, saying our vows and falling deeper in love with each other. But we can honestly say our day would not have been anywhere near as special as it was if we didn't get... More

Attended a wedding here and day was perfect in every way. Ceremony held in the garden venue pre and post drinks in the garden patio area. Air conditioned main room for meal reception and food outstanding. About 20 minutes outside Folkestone so pre book taxi to ensure you arrive in time for the event.

This was a wonderful day made better by good weather and the very attentive staff. The bbq meal was superb and the attention to detail, the friendliness of the chefs who supervised the output and the quiet efficiency of the waiting staff made for a great day. Book your taxi early!
