All weddings are bespoke, from an intimate wedding in one of the private dining rooms, to a wedding breakfast for 120 people in the garden marquee.

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…

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
