Great Bower Barn
For a distinct & unique wedding
Welcome to Great Bower Barn
Great Bower Barn is a beautiful Edwardian brick barn in the secluded Kent countryside. It is a huge space which can seat up to 400 people. It is a perfect wedding venue with a wonderful open space to plan your wedding day in any way you wish.
This magnificent Flemish style barn has very large wooden and glass doors which can be opened to let your guests feel they are in the heart of the countryside. There are beautiful views of the North Downs and across to Kings Wood. We are within easy reach of London and the South Coast (Ashford high speed train line is only 20 minutes from the Barn). The Barn is located eight miles from Ashford, Canterbury and Faversham.
We would love to show you the barn and discuss your ideas about your day and a wedding celebration that you will remember forever. Weddings at Great Bower Barn comprise the venue hire which then allows you to customise other aspects of the wedding as you wish. There is plenty parking space and, if required, there is also overnight camping space for guests.
Viewings are available by appointment on weekdays. The hire of the barn for four days (allowing plenty of time for planning and set up) is £3000; there is a £500 deposit.
Great Bower Barn
The barn has been in the family for 50 years. The roof has been rebuilt by Glyn, a member of the family. It has been used more and more for family functions, weddings, art shows, etc. From the farmyard side of the barn huge wooden doors open out to a view of the farmyard, the pond and the family house which dates back to the tenth century. This side of the barn enjoys the warmth of the afternoon and evening sun. The other side of the barn (above) has two lots of very large glass doors which open out to a view of the sloping valley and fields which sweep across to Kings Wood.
