Welcome to our beautiful 16th century wedding venue, set in rural Kent, aside the Swale estuary.

Set in the picture-perfect landscape of wild meadows and wild wetland reserves of the Kent countryside, The Ferry House provides a beautiful backdrop for your rustic yet refined wedding day. With accommodation for 70+ guests and award-winning dining from our expansive locally-sourced, homegrown menus, we’re secluded but accessible, just 60 minutes from London.

NEW for 2026 weddings! The Ferry House has announced plans to build a beautiful new wedding barn in time for spring 2026.

Under the plans, The Ferry House will remain open for weddings until 30th September 2025, after which their diary will close for weddings until Sunday 12th April 2026. They are currently in the design phase of the development and are excited to be able to share plans by 10th January 2025, at the latest. Couples can secure their 2026 date now free of charge, paying a booking fee only once drawings for the new Barn have been confirmed. For more information, please get in touch with their weddings team.

Full of country character, choose to say ‘I do’ in our rustic Oak Barn, adorned with fairy lights and hops all year round or in our Oak Gazebo, overlooking the Swale estuary and beyond.

Both a magnificent and unique space to hold your ceremony.

Our Event Suite boasts floor to ceiling windows, bringing our unspoiled landscapes in during your wedding breakfast for up to 180 guests.

With packages including everything you need for stress free planning, as well as our dedicated wedding coordinators, The Ferry House is not only a venue to celebrate your big day, but one you can return to again and again after your wedding.

Where do we even begin to express our heartfelt gratitude? From the very moment James and I set foot in The Ferry House, we were met with warm smiles and a sense of belonging that instantly captured our hearts. It was clear to us that this was the venue where our dreams would come to life.

Words cannot adequately convey the depth of our gratitude for providing us with the most incredible wedding day. Our expectations were not only met but exceeded in every possible way. The flawless execution, the breathtaking grounds, and the exceptional food left us in awe.

More than just a venue, The Ferry House became a warm and welcoming home for our families and friends. Your staff’s outstanding hospitality and the homely atmosphere captured the hearts of everyone present.

The beauty of the grounds was matched only by the incredible dedication of your staff. Each and every one of them is outstanding, going above and beyond to ensure that every detail was perfect. We truly couldn’t have asked for more.
