Full Description
The Oak Barn is a stunning 18th Century threshing barn that lies at the heart of Frame Farm, a traditional farmstead of 25 acres. The current restoration retains all the historic features yet with the most up to date technology, and provides a stunning, versatile space for your bespoke wedding breakfast and celebration. 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. 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. You will love the beauty of the farm whatever the season, from the impressive barns to the lily pond and tranquil flowing grass gardens. A warm welcome and personal service will ensure that your wedding is everything you ever dreamed of.

The Oak Barn is just the cherry on top
We got married here in September 2019 and honestly had the best experience. Incredible venue, wonderful owners and truly amazing recommendations on suppliers. Beautiful grounds, stunning accommodation and the Oak Barn is just the cherry on top. Could not more highly recommend this for your special day.

It has 'The WOW' factor but in a natural way!
“Chris and I would like to say a big Thank you for making Chloe and Nick's day so special. The venue is of course magical and how wonderful to see the vision you shared with us last year come to life. We feel it really does have 'The WOW' factor but in a relaxed, natural way which was perfect for us. All of our guests commented on what a wonderful venue and in the last few years there have been many weddings all different so it was great for Chloe to have something unique and different to her friends. It was everything we wanted as we wanted our guests to feel relaxed and have fun!

A Perfect Weekend
We had our wedding at Frame Farm in July this year. The venue has been converted with amazing attention to detail and the overall setting is idyllic. Both the inside and outdoor areas provided such great spaces for all aspects our day. The Byre gave us an intimate feel to the ceremony and accommodated our 100+ guests comfortably. The terrace was great for post ceremony drinks and was a secondary space for guests after our meal in the main barn. The courtyard enabled our guests to choose to relax outside or spend time on the dance floor. Tim and Deana were very helpful and attentive through our whole planning process and supported all our suppliers on the day. The accommodation for guests on site is stunning and helped make the whole weekend just perfect. I would have no hesitation recommending the venue and really encourage couples to opt to have the farm for the whole weekend, it made the day so less stressful and rushed.

Our Beautiful Barn Wedding
We first visited Frame Farm in March 2018, before the Oak Barn had really began its main construction, and we reserved our wedding date based on paper floor plans and computer generated images. When we returned for the launch in January 2019 we could not have been more overwhelmed by the Barn's unbelievable transformation - we knew we had made the best decision choosing The Oak Barn for our wedding reception. You will not be disappointed if you choose to get married here. The Byre and Weavers Cottages add such fantastic opportunity to your event, you can arrange the day however you like. We are living on all the wonderful memories, we wish we could do it all over again and cannot wait to visit Deana and Tim again soon at Frame Farm. Thank you for everything, we had the best day ever and couldn't have asked for anymore.

The location is incredibly idyllic
We had our wedding at Frame Farm, on the 26/05/19. The location is incredibly idyllic, set in the beautiful Kent countyside, all of our guests were blown away with how amazing the venue was. Tim and Deana allowed us to visit the venue with our friends, family, caterers, photographer etc on numerous occasions, which made the preparation so much easier and they were on hand to assist or answer any questions when needed, over the entire period. We would recommend this venue to anyone, it's a perfect setting for such a special day and run by a lovely couple."

Naturally beautiful and eco
Our day was breathtaking beautiful at the Oak Barn. The setting on its own was beautiful but with a few simple flowers it came alive! Excellent facilities that fit into our eco lifestyle and Deana and Tim were extraordinarily helpful and really went out of their way to help us achieve our dream day!!!
