What's So Special About The Oak Barn, Frame Farm?

Heritage, character and rural beauty all combine in perfect harmony at The Oak Barn. Nestled in an idyllic valley in the heart of Kent’s High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, every detail of this exclusive Grade II listed venue has been designed to make the perfect setting for your special day.

When it comes to your wedding, it’s not just about finding a venue, it’s about discovering somewhere to create memories that will stay with you forever.

Frame Farm has a series of stunning buildings dating from 1607, which include three reception barns, The Oak Barn, The Byre and the Pole Barn, as well as six luxurious Weaver’s Cottages for you and your guests.

The awe-inspiring Oak Barn has a magnificent high vaulted roof, glass frontage overlooking the courtyard, hidden state-of-the-art technology, underfloor heating and a cosy wood-burning stove; every modern convenience in a breathtaking old threshing barn yet with an intimate feel. With classic elegance and tranquil views, The Byre offers a graceful space perfectly suited for ceremonies or more intimate receptions, or it can be transformed into an entertainment room for the children.

The romantic terrace, waterfall and lily pond are a wildlife haven and perfect for a celebratory toast or photographs.

The Pole Barn, our large open-fronted barn offers a more rustic style and comes complete with fairy lights and power. Used as our wood store and home to a working 1956 Fordson Major tractor, the chopped wood, original oak door from The Oak Barn, and decorative rusted-screens make this another unique location for nuptial vows, photographs and games within our farmyard.

Combined with a warm welcome and personal service, we are confident that your wedding at Frame Farm will exceed your expectations.

What Couples Say

“The most wonderful venue. We got married here in September after booking on a zoom call 18 months before! Deana, Tim and Hayley were so easy to work with to plan our day and so accommodating letting us visit a few times before hand. The venue itself is just stunning, so well kept and the perfect balance between rustic and modern with a beautiful terrace looking over the lovely Kent countryside. It was the perfect canvas to create a really unique and personal day. Our guests loved it and loved how contained it was, it really was a home for the weekend. We also loved the sheep! The cottages are just stunning and the perfect place to get ready. Benenden church was just an 8 minute walk away along a scenic path and people have told us that they actually loved the walk as much as anything! Tim and Deana plant a tree for each couple, which is such a lovely idea. As we were their 100th couple, they planted an oak tree and we had a ceremony with some fizz and our family and friends – it was so special. Couldn’t recommend this venue more.”

“Hi Deana, Tim, Hayley and Chrystelle, I’m sure we said thank you a million times already but we just wanted to put in writing that we have had the most amazing day this weekend. The venue is so beautiful, all our guests were in awe and loved the set up and moving up and down in the farm for the various stages of the wedding day as it meant that they could mingle a lot more than if everything had been in one location/building. Our suppliers, all from your suggested list, were also fantastic and made it all come together seemingly effortlessly. The cottages were so lovely for my family and us to stay over the weekend and I managed to find the time to have a bath in the copper tub, which was a great pampering experience the day before the wedding. Congratulations to all of you for making this place so amazing and thanks again for helping make the best day for us.”
