The Old Kent Barn is a passionate family business striving to offer the very best facilities and a first class personal service.

Originally a three bedroom Bed & Breakfast run by Hilary and Roger Simmons the venue was transformed into an events and wedding venue when their daughter Claire Weedon and their son-in-law Will Weedon joined in 2006. In fact it was Claire and Will’s wedding reception at the Barn in 2005 that gave the four family members the idea to put all their talents together and run a wedding venue.

In 2012 Emily Stevens (nee Daly) joined the team as Wedding Coordinator. Following Hilary and Roger’s retirement in 2013 Emily and her husband Huw moved in to run the award winning Bed and Breakfast venue.

Now in it’s 9th year The Old Kent Barn goes from strength to strength as the entire team continually look for ways to improve and deliver an outstanding experience.

WOW what a venue. Everything about it is perfection. Hard to put every good thing into only 50 words, but what really sets TOKB apart is the staff. There every step of the way, nothing is too much. A must view venue.

We just had our wedding here and OMG it was stunning. Everyone commented on how beautiful the venue was and how amazing the staff were. They all worked tirelessly around the clock for all of our needs. Kerry, Kylie and Miles were all amazing. They made sure our day ran so smoothly and everything went without a hitch. Even through my bridezila moments. The bridal suite was gorgeous, the breakfast was to die for and the attention to detail that Claire ensures is provided, is second to none. We don't think our day would have been as perfect if it wasn't for them! They made it complete. We cannot thank The whole team including the all the lovely ladies and gents behind the scenes at the Old Kent Barn enough!! You made our fairytale complete! Thank you.
