The Venue | Kentwell Hall

The Venue

"Kentwell was magical... the most perfect, romantic setting. We could not have picked a more enchanting venue."

The House

The house has three main rooms which interconnect to form an area over 100 ft long to accommodate up to 126 guests for ceremonies, receptions and meals. It provides a grand and historic setting for your event.

The Overcroft

An impressive oak floored, timber-framed, first floor area in the nearby Old Stableyard, the Overcroft measures 120 ft long and is suitable for up to a maximum of 200 guests for receptions or about 160 for dining and dancing. It has a small stage at one end that can be used for bands etc.The Overcroft can be used in conjunction with the house or independently. It can also be bare hired. The stableyard outside can be used for sitting out and a canopy can give extra space if required. Downstairs we have our Croft Tearoom and Stableyard grill which work well for discos and late night snacks. We are in the process of landscaping a 'secret garden' area which can also be used for receptions once finished.


Kentwell can accommodate large marquees, usually sited on the Cedar Lawn. These can be connected by a short corridor directly to the Parlour and are suitable for large numbers or couples who want a particular form of seating arrangement.

The Courtyard & Cedar Lawn

The Courtyard, Cedar Lawn and Walled Garden are beautiful, peaceful locations for receptions in summer weather.
