Marleybrook House is an immaculately presented seventeenth century 'chocolate box' thatched farmhouse full of unique character, history and old world charm.  Former home to the legendary international singer, actress and cabaret star Eartha Kitt, Marleybrook House is in a secluded location, offering total privacy and exclusivity, yet just seven miles from the city of Canterbury.  The five acres of landscaped gardens, paddocks and woodland provide the perfect setting for a quintessential English Country Wedding.

Marriage ceremonies are licensed on these premises.  We offer a choice of four areas; the formal Walled Garden, the open Gladed Lawn, the Oak Framed Barn and the Grand Marquee.  You and your guests are invited to explore the grounds of this exclusive venue before entering the Grand Marquee or Oak Framed Barn for your wedding breakfast and evening reception where the finishings and accessories are of the finest quality.  Our country-style snug lounge and bar conveniently adjoins the marquee offering guests further space and comfort to relax and enjoy this wonderful venue for all its character.  Also adjoining the marquee is our contemporary, decked and covered barbecue area with specimen trees and lush hedging.

Marleybrook House is perfect for weddings all year round providing the prettiest 'picture postcard' backdrop throughout the changing seasons.  Experience the nostalgia of the many quirky features in abundance here including our authentic Vintage Fayre with Victorian Swing Boats and traditional side stalls, original haywain, gypsy caravan, vintage tractor, age-old carts, butchers bike, red telephone box and much more!

Finish the evening in style and stay in Marleybrook's traditionally renovated Showman's Carriage that is based on the pullman style carriages currently used on the Orient Express.  Alternative accommodation includes our Luxurious Bridal Suite, complete with hot tub on the terrace, offering sumptuous accommodation to enjoy at your leisure.  This can also accommodate up to six persons making it the ideal place for a pre wedding get together or simply a space for you to get ready on the day.

We pride ourselves in delivering a first class service of the highest standard.  As part of this service, you will have a personal Wedding Coordinator who will be on hand throughout the entire planning process leading up to, and on, the day of your wedding thus ensuring this special day is managed seamlessly.  We very much look forward to welcoming you to this unique and magical venue.

About Us

Hello we are Janie and Kris.  Marleybrook House has been our family home since 2007.  The 17th century house has a unique warmth and old world charm.  It is steeped in history and has had an interesting and chequered past!  Since living here we have worked hard developing the grounds and gardens.  Together with our backgrounds in creative design and our love of hosting events we can now share what we have created, culminating in a truly unique wedding venue.  Janie is also very pleased that Kris is now making use of his years of collecting museum pieces!

Our love of the outdoors is reflected in the rustic Kentish charm of Marleybrook House evoking nostalgia and childhood memories on a warm summer's day.  However, we like the more refined side of life too!  This is reflected in the attention to detail and refinement in all aspects of our venue.

We have both competed in Triathlon at an International level and want to apply the same commitment, hard work and dedication to your special day.

Our aim is to provide as much flexibility as possible thus giving you choices to make your day exactly how you wish it to be.

If you are looking for a venue that will give you a personal feel with a relaxed atmosphere then please feel free to arrange a viewing where we will personally meet you and the kettle will be on!
