Weddings, offices

and filming

The Court Lodge is a pretty small estate set in rolling Kent chalk downland. We host wedding receptions at our 17th century tithe barn, let out office units in our restored farmyard and have a range of buildings and landscapes suitable for filming – all within easy reach of London.


The Court Lodge Black Barn is an atmospheric events venue with a traditional English garden.


The Court Lodge Centre has five office units to let in our award-winning courtyard development.


The Court Lodge can provide a variety of locations, including oak-panelled rooms, a 1930s swimming pool and pavilion, and picturesque farmland and woods.
