The Knowle Country House Wedding Venue Kent

The Knowle Country House Wedding Venue Kent

The Knowle Country House Wedding Venue Kent offers a truly wonderful location and never fails to impress. Gardens bursting with colour throughout the seasons. A Victorian Summerhouse set in a wooded area opening as an outside bar in the spring and summer months, offering in addition Pimms and Champagne Cocktails.

Irrespective of the numbers they will only have one wedding on any day, offering you total privacy and sole use of the premises, with no hiring or hidden charges. Also irrespective of the numbers, the bride’s table will have full view of all her guests. They will always endeavour to work with your budget.

For marriages on the premises, they can offer our Garden room or the Gazebo, which is set in the Rose Garden – both allowing all your guests to witness the ceremony.

The Knowle Country House Wedding Venue Kent was built in the 1850’s by the rector of Higham, a great friend of Charles Dickens whose house he shared at ‘Gad’s Hill Higham’ whilst The Knowle was being built. Dickens later became a frequent visitor. The Knowle is set in 14 acres of orchards and old English gardens, now the home of Lyn and Michael Baragwanath who turned their house into a restaurant in 1980.

The aim of The Knowle is to offer a relaxed, unhurried and personal service in elegant surroundings where flexibility and style are major considerations. They avoid the pomp and ceremony associated with many country house restorations, making it affordable to all.

They specialise in ‘English food’, large portions and using fresh produce.

Over the years they have become one of Kent’s most popular and historically interesting wedding venues. They will always be happy to show you around, be it a wedding, private party or that romantic dinner for two.
