The feel

Set back from the tree-lined lanes of Kent, the Manor House at Chilston Park is a unique grade 1 listed property. Over the years, it has been home to many illustrious politicians, writers, Lords, and Viscounts. Today it is a luxury hotel set within 22 acres of idyllic rural parkland in the heart of the Garden of England.

But perhaps the most remarkable aspect of this luxury 4 red star hotel is the antiques and history that surround it. It has many magnificent artefacts that date as far back as the 17th-century manor house itself. Many of the 53 bedrooms feature original fireplaces and exquisite four-poster beds. Dating back to the 17th Century, Chilston Park encourages you to be totally self-indulgent creating that all-important relaxing mindset. Today, with its lake surrounded by 22 acres of private grounds, luxurious furnishings, open fires, and candlelight; it remains a stunning scene for those very important occasions.

Every wedding is uniquely special and we believe your day should reflect this. Our team of professional co-ordinators will help take care of arrangements and make the whole process seamless. Let us advise on everything from flowers to arrival by helicopter and on the day itself, our experienced team will be there to make sure the only ‘hitch’ is the one you have planned.

Chilston Park offers 4 flexible ceremony spaces;

The glorious Coach House Suite offers floor-to-ceiling windows along with its neutral decor that makes this room feel light and airy. Glistening chandeliers and gold-framed mirrors also add a touch of opulence. In front of all of your family and friends, this is the perfect light to get married in with a ceremony capacity of 100.

Alternatively, The Orangery is encased in glass walls, this room is designed to shine you and your loved one in the perfect light. Orangery also has panoramic views of the magnificent Kent countryside offering a capacity of 100 guests.
