Spotlight on The Manor House at The Castle Westenhanger

Romancing the stone
at The Manor House, The Castle Westenhanger

For a romantic wedding venue steeped in history and tradition may we present to you the beautifully restored The Manor House at The Castle Westenhanger near Hythe in Kent.
In the seventeenth century, the castle was home to one of the largest manor houses in the whole of Kent and the Grade I listed building that you see today dates back to those glory days of old. The Manor House was then partially rebuilt in stone in 1701 with the brick Georgian front elevation being added in the late eighteenth century. More recently, the house has been sympathetically restored and now proudly opens its doors for weddings.

The Manor House as a wedding venue

Today The Manor House serves as one of the most romantic venues in Kent for an indoor civil wedding ceremony. You’ll love the period features like the thick stone walls and centuries-old exposed oak beams and on a cold winter’s day there’s nothing better than to be greeted by the warmth of a roaring fire in the manor’s inglenook fireplace.
The Manor House itself can accommodate up to 120 guests making it an ideal choice for smaller intimate wedding ceremonies. For your reception, the Marquee can host up to 200 guests for a sit-down meal and up to 300 guests for an evening buffet.

The bridal dressing room

Included with your wedding package is exclusive use of your very own bridal dressing room. Located upstairs in the Manor House, it is the perfect place to relax with your bridal party and prepare for your wedding day. It’s also a great place to take those all important pre-wedding photographs.
