Thanks for taking a look at our gorgeous venue set amongst Kent apple orchards. The space in The Night Yard is really charming and we do recommend you take a look in person as the photos do not do it justice. Please do get in touch if you would like to visit us or if you have any more questions that we might be able to help with.

What’s your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Work out how many items you need for each of your tables and take a notepad to the venue to jot down what's required to decorate the different areas of your space
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
I love the trees in upturned apple bins they add some height and great for hanging photos or lanterns from. I also love when couples get in some quirky furniture or venue styling.
