Manor Farm Barn

New Barn Rd, Southfleet, DA13 9PU, Gravesend, Kent
Up to 100 guests
History and heritage meet modern magnificence at Manor Farm Barn - a stunning place to enjoy fine food and drink in Southfleet.

Originally an 18th-century barn, it was lovingly restored in 2001, becoming Britain’s first 21st-century thatched pub and the winner of a CAMRA Pub Design Award.


The thatched roof is, quite literally, the crowning glory here - but it’s only part of the pub’s appeal. Inside, original oak timbers have been painstakingly restored, while two spacious floors, a dramatic high ceiling and swathes of natural light make the pub a truly special place to relax.


As for the food and drink on offer, it’s worthy of the sublime setting. Foodies travel for many miles to sample our delicious restaurant dishes, while beer fans can savour award-winning ales and lagers from Britain’s oldest brewer, Shepherd Neame. There’s an extensive collection of wines here too - perhaps best enjoyed outside in the sun in our spacious patio garden.


And when you really want to raise a glass to toast a big occasion, there’s the option to hire our restaurant exclusively for your group. A special setting for a special day, there’s no finer spot in Southfleet for a ‘barnstorming’ celebration…

Up to 200 guests
Crondon Park has established a reputation as the premier wedding venue in Essex. Set in the beautiful valley of Crondon, with stunning views across the Essex countryside and our championship golf course, it’s no wonder that we are considered in Essex as ‘The Venue for All Occasions’. We have been staging weddings at Crondon Park since our opening in 1994, so we bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to ensure that your day runs smoothly. As Essex’s best wedding venue, we have a responsibility to strive for improved standards. Our family owned business is constantly looking for ways to cater for our valued guest, and we’re keen to make your experience an unforgettable one.

Our main function room is The Baronial Hall. Built circa 1600 out of light oak, it is considered to be one of the finest examples of a Tudor/Jacobean Barn. It has a charm of its own, a very special atmosphere and that wow factor when you first see it. We have enhanced its medieval feel by adding atmosphere lighting; this charming Essex wedding venue can then be colour matched to the theme chosen for your wedding. The solid rosewood floor was acquired from County Hall London twenty years ago, and a hundred years after it was laid there. The Baronial Suite includes The Ryder Room, which is licensed to perform Civil & Partnership Ceremonies. It also has a Bridal Suite, allowing the bride to prepare herself prior to the ceremony and a private room to escape to. The private gardens are totally enclosed. It has a very private feel and cannot be overlooked by anyone. The trees are theme-lit to match the lighting in the Baronial Hall. The whole wedding venue suite is exclusive and self-contained.


The best wedding venues in Essex, and specifically Chelmsford, are extremely well represented, so we have to be vigilant and professional to stay ahead of our competitors. Crondon Park has recently been nominated and shortlisted for ‘The Best Wedding & Barn Venue in the United Kingdom’, which is a true honour. Whether you’re looking for a large wedding venue or a small wedding venue in Essex, we can accommodate for weddings of all sizes. All our catering is in house, we only use fresh produce, and we pride ourselves on presenting tasty foods for all of our wedding guests. There is a wide choice of menus to satisfy all tastes and special dietary requirements.

Leeds Castle

Maidstone, Kent, ME17 1PL, Maidstone, Kent
£8250
Up to 250 guests
Just a few months before Lady Baillie died in September 1974, she put in place plans to create a charitable foundation to which the Castle and grounds would be transferred, so that they could be preserved for future generations to visit and enjoy. Her lifelong friend Lord Geoffrey-Lloyd became the first Chairman of the Trustees of the Leeds Castle Foundation, and he set about ensuring the financial stability of the newly established charity.

An endowment of £1.4 million was invested and a further £400,000 was realised from the sale of furniture, so that improvements could be made to the Castle to attract paying corporate conferences. It was quickly realised that these alone would not support the ongoing costs of running the Estate, so in 1975 the gardens were opened to the public, and the following year the Castle was also made available to visitors.


The reputation of Leeds Castle as a leading visitor attraction and conference venue grew, and in 1978 it was chosen as the location for the Middle East peace talks that preceded the Camp David Accords of the same year.


Since then Leeds Castle has become one of England’s top tourist attractions and welcomes over 600,000 visitors a year, as well as hosting weddings, conferences and caring for the beautiful gardens and Castle interiors.


• Known as "The Loveliest Castle in the World"

• Additional accommodation of 42 bedrooms, all with breakfast served the next morning: 20 in the Castle, 5 in the Maiden’s Tower, 17 Stable Courtyard
