Chilston Park is set in stunning Kentish countryside and lays claim to 22 acres of private grounds. The venue caters for guests travelling from far and wide nestled in Lenham, just 10 minutes from the M20 and with the nearest train station being Lenham or Ashford International (12 miles away).
Chilston Park is a place of timeless elegance – classic interiors combined with original features give the venue so much character that only enhances the setting for a wedding day.
Chilston Park lends itself to all seasons. Stunning summer time weddings featuring an outdoor ceremony held in the gazebo which is set in the grounds and vibrant florals which complement white iron vintage garden furniture in the gardens – perfect for reception drinks.
The venue takes on a soft and cosy feeling for winter and the décor of dark wood with gold highlights is bought to life with glowing chandeliers.
For the ultimate experience Chilston Park is best when it belongs entirely to the wedding couple for their day. Exclusive use hire allows you to make this country house your home and to dress each of the ceremony and reception rooms exactly as you dreamt.
We close our bars to non residents at midnight and music may only be booked to this time. Where exclusive use is booked then you may choose to have the bar stay open until 1am. We offer alcoholic beverages to our residents 24hrs (subject to behaviour).
We will take bedroom reservations for the night prior to your wedding no earlier than 9 months before your wedding day. Bedrooms will be subject to availability and charged at the best available rate.
Your ceremony time can be your preference in accordance with the registrars. We will then structure the rest of the day around this.
The hotel supplies all glassware, linen, china and silverware for your table, however, we do not provide any decoration. The operations team will be happy to lay out your place cards and any favours on your tables for you as long as clear instructions are left of how you would like it.
Outdoor ceremonies are available from March - October in garden gazebo. Don’t worry about rain - we always make sure you have an indoor room set up just in case.
