KENTFIELD COUNTRY WEDDINGS
Kentfield Country Estate is the perfect venue for those wishing to escape the hustle and bustle of urban life. You and your guests can enjoy the wonderful Kent countryside with the sound of skylarks singing above you whilst looking out over the tranquil lake.
Every wedding we hold is unique and entirely bespoke as we only host a limited number of weddings each year.
With a full wedding licence why not exchange your vows under our stunning lapa that sits at the edge of our beautiful 4 acre lake?
Once the ceremony is finished you can take a trip in our vintage Norfolk boat “Pipsqueak” on the lake, this will provide a fantastic photo opportunity as well as making use of many other quiet yet dramatic spots around the estate.
The celebrations can then begin! A beautiful LP Bohemia Marquee is positioned beside the lake, with sweeping views of the estate. It can accommodate 150-day guests and an additional 50 guests for the evening reception. Once the meal is finished you and your guests can dance the night away under the stars.
We want to create the perfect day for you so we work with The Swan in West Malling who have a wealth of experience in managing and operating large events at both its own site and external venues.
Our dedicated Events Manager will be responsible for your wedding and will be there to assist you along the way.
Finally, why not arrive in style to the estate – we own several vintage Aston Martin cars which can be included to make your day extra special!

Exclusive Vintage Cars and Boats
If you are lucky enough to hold your wedding ceremony or reception at our beautiful venue you have the option of choosing a very special car to take you to and from the church or pick up from your hotel (subject to mileage).
The Aston Martin DB6 Volante is synonymous with the wedding of Kate & William when they left Buckingham Palace, waving to the crowds.
Also available is a rare 1964 Aston Martin DB5 which is the car associated with the James Bond films Goldfinger, Casino Royal & Skyfall, or perhaps an Aston Martin DB4, famous for its appearance in The Italian Job?
We also have a stunning gun metal Aston Martin DB9 which was the car of choice in Fast & Furious 6 and 7.
We even have available a genuine Aston Martin Junior, which was built by Aston Martin, and this can be used for wedding pictures for younger page boys or bridesmaids, so they do not feel left out of the action!
Moving away from cars, an alternative for those clients also looking to arrive at the venue in an unusual but very stylish way, we have a teak decked Norfolk launch boat call “Pipsqueak” she is a hand built beauty, which is operated by electric motors avoiding any petrol or diesel smells.
Stag and Hen Parties
At Kentfield Estate, we work alongside our close neighbours at The Wright Event who specialise in fantastic motor based activities to guarantee your stag, hen or “sten” party is one to remember.
We have a wide selection of motorised activities and country pursuits to offer for an action packed and fun filled event. Choose from activities such as the exhilarating clay pigeon shooting, the adrenalin packed apache rally cars, quad biking or maybe a leisurely spot of fly fishing.
Our full list of party activities are listed below, once you’ve made your choice contact us to get your party booked!
My wife and I recently had our wedding reception at Kentfield Country Estate, Offham, Kent.
When looking for a suitable venue we found many locations that insisted on using their own caterers, DJ, bar etc but we wished to arrange our own suppliers. Through a few searches on google we found Kentfield Country Estate, so swiftly made an appointment to meet with Ian. He showed us around the extensive grounds which are nothing short of stunning. As soon as seeing the beautiful venue we knew this is where we wanted to celebrate our wedding, and upon talking to Ian we quickly established that he was more than happy to accommodate anything we required for our reception including our choice of suppliers.
Not only does Kentfield Country Estate have the most exquisite surroundings, Ian also has what only can be described as an outstanding collection of cars including an extensive selection of unique cars. We were fortunate enough for Ian to drive his Aston Martin DB6 Volante for our wedding which all of the guests were very impressed with, in fact I think many of them were more interested with the vehicle than our wedding. On the actual wedding day Ian’s priority and main focus was all about my wife and constantly checking she was ok and if there was anything she needed he would arrange it, nothing was too much trouble. Ian made the whole process easy, relaxing and problem free.
Whilst we were waiting for the guests to arrive from the church to the venue we were able to have a few minutes to relax in Ian’s garden with a cold beverage which was unexpected and extremely kind of him. The whole ambiance of the venue was absolutely amazing and there was such a great atmosphere with people in the lapa sipping their drinks by the lake and listening to music. I would never hesitate in using Kentfield Country Estate again or recommending the venue to friends and family, we are even thinking of planning our 1st year anniversary there next year!
Mr and Mrs Williams
We were so lucky to be the first wedding held at Kentfield Country Estate, we could not have asked for a more amazing venue or a better person to deal with than Ian.
The venue itself is enough to fall in love with, but with Ian’s helpfulness and friendly manner it was just a joy to organise our event. We decided to have our joint ‘Sten’ Party there, with a day clay pigeon shooting. It was a beautiful setting for a great day, everyone thoroughly enjoyed it and Ian and his team were beyond helpful and professional the whole day. It made a great prelude to the big day!
The lake is the element we really wanted; it just creates such a peaceful and calm atmosphere, something we wanted our wedding to be. The lodge is just a fantastic place, really cosy and romantic, and just a blank canvas for decorating and a great place to put the dancefloor! There is a clear path all the way round the lake, and when you get halfway round you can look back on the lodge and see it in all its glory!
Ian was just so helpful and accommodating the whole way through, he really made us feel as though he wanted our day to be as special as we wanted it to be. Nothing was too much trouble for him, and he kindly chauffeured us from the Church to the venue, in one of his gorgeous vintage Aston Martins.
I cannot recommend this place enough as a wedding venue, it truly is a special place. It’s an incredibly unique, romantic and stunning place, and if you want your day to be magical then this is the place.
