The stunning 18th Century Oak Barn is nestled in a beautiful valley below the village of Benenden in an enviable rural position within Kent’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Located at Frame Farm, it has easy access by road from the M25 via the A21 and nearby towns of Tunbridge Wells, Maidstone and Ashford. By train London Bridge to Staplehurst Station, takes 45 minutes giving access to the venue in just over an hour.
The Oak Barn is the perfect venue for your bespoke wedding set in a beautiful countryside location.
Located at Frame Farm, a traditional farmstead of 25 acres, the current restoration retains all the historic features and provides a stunning, versatile space for your wedding. The barn has a magnificent high vaulted roof, amazing views of the surrounding countryside and a cosy wood burning stove, giving you every modern convenience in a beautifully traditional building that is perfect in all seasons.
You will love the beauty of the farm whatever the season, from the impressive barns to the lily pond and tranquil gardens. A warm welcome and personal service will ensure that your wedding is everything you ever dreamed of. The Byre has breathtaking views down the valley and is ideal for hosting your civil ceremony, partnership or renewal of vows. Glass doors now enclose this open fronted animal shelter and in fine weather you can enjoy a celebratory drink on the terrace and around the lily pond.
The luxurious Weaver’s Cottages dating from 1607, can accommodate 18 people and includes five cottages. The sumptuous bridal cottage is perfect for brides and their bridesmaids to prepare for their grand entrance
