Wedding Receptions


Swarling Manor has been one of the foremost wedding venues in Kent taking our first booking in 1996 and celebrating 20 years in 2017. Your ceremony can take place in the lovingly restored barn or in the gazebo on the formal lawns of the traditional manor house.

Swarling Manor stands in a peaceful rural location, just outside of Canterbury, surrounded by glorious gardens that provide you with a wonderful setting for civil marriages and wedding receptions. We take pride our ability to tailor your special day with the utmost flexibility to ensure your day is exactly how you want it. Our hospitality, standard of service and attention to detail will ensure your wedding day is unforgettable for all the right reasons.

The barn is suitable for a traditional wedding breakfast of up to 150 guests or a marquee on the adjoining lawns can extend this accommodation. This makes a wonderful location for the reception and provides plenty of space (we can even accommodate a larger marquee for up to 400 people if required). The marquee looks over the grounds and gardens of Swarling Manor.

Private Venue Hire (Birthdays, Anniversaries, Christenings etc.)

Swarling Manor is also the perfect venue for your celebrations whether it’s a special birthday, marking a landmark anniversary or the Christening of the newest member of a family. Our barn and marquee are ideal for small to large groups and our fully stocked bar will make sure your celebration is enjoyed by all.

The grounds to the manor house are great for the spring or summer celebration and once the sun goes down the party can move indoors to an area organised however you would like it.
