If you are looking for a completely secluded woodland wedding venue which is unlike anything you have seen before then this is the venue for you.

Set within 80 acres of privately owned land within the Kent Downs area of outstanding natural beauty, this stunning ancient woodland, field shelter and meadow offers the most unique and secluded setting for your wedding day. Not only does it come with a legal ceremony license within the Field Shelter, it also comes with a woodland blessing area giving you the rare opportunity to choose from two places to hold your ceremony.

Say I do overlooking the most beautiful trees and wildflower meadows or hold a personal blessing under a canopy of ancient woodland. The choice is yours…..



Upon arrival a leafy lane just off a main road leads to a private entrance. You and your guests will follow a single track road through meadows and woodland until you reach a small field that is used as the car park. From here, a pathway through a hedge at the top of the car park will take you on a romantic walk through the gorgeous coppice woodland to the main meadow, the licensed field shelter and glamping meadow. This pathway is beautifully lit at night ensuring guests can safely make their way back to their cars or taxis at the end of the evening.

Within the coppice woodland is a natural clearing that can be used for alternative ceremonies or a personal blessing under the natural arch of a beech tree branch. If you have always dreamed of getting married under a canopy of trees then this is the place for you. This area can also be used for your welcome drinks, an area for an acoustic band to play or a chill out retreat for you and your guests.



In the main meadow a handmade swing hangs from a gigantic ancient beach tree close to the licensed field shelter. Giant hat tipis, marquees or yurts can be erected on the meadow close to the beach tree within easy reach of the field shelter, bonfire and other facilities.

Access to the site is easy with excellent links to London and two train stations very nearby. The venue also offers glamping in the form of 2 Shepherds Huts, 7 Bell Tents and a very cool and quirky woodcutter’s cottage often used as the honeymoon suite. Camping pitches are also available.

Special thanks to Heline Bekker Photography and Joe Burford for their amazing photos.

The shelter is licensed for marriage ceremonies, renewal of vows and baby welcoming ceremonies. The space allows for excellent flexibility for all types of event.
