The Beacon

Country House, Public House and Restaurant

Tucked away down Tea Garden Lane by the edge of the woods but close to the heart of Tunbridge Wells, The Beacon is a picture postcard of whimsical, rustic romance. A beautifully refurbished country house with stunning views and endless gardens, The Beacon is full of character and charm for a relaxed and intimate celebration.

Set within seventeen acres of gardens, woodlands and lakes and perched high on the ridge overlooking Happy Valley, this former Arts and Crafts private residence has breath-taking views all year round. With options for exclusive-use of the house and grounds for the day, The Beacon is fully licensed for weddings and offers a naturally abundant and generous home to celebrate in. With two function rooms, terrace dining, a blooming rose garden, the Amphitheatre and the Grand Pavilion, The Beacon provides spacious private areas for your celebration, complete with homely aesthetics and sweeping views.

A little bit like home, but better, with cosy corners, snugs and stylish interiors, The Beacon is the ultimate house party, wonderful for an exclusive-use wedding of feasting, partying and fun.

On the day of your wedding, your guests assemble on the terrace to enjoy panoramic views of the stunning Kent countryside as well as perfect viewing down to the Amphitheatre and Grand Pavilion; a sneak preview of the celebrations to come. They then take their seats for an intimate and aesthetically striking ceremony in the Amphitheatre. With its rustic wooden build, classic features and beautiful natural backdrop, this stage makes a charming setting for exchanging your vows. The wood panelled tiered auditorium ensures that every guest enjoys a front row seat for the nuptials.

Following your ceremony, where better to enjoy your wedding breakfast than in our custom made Grand Pavilion, complete with wood floor paneling and beams. Enjoy a bespoke catering package for your day, tailored towards your specific needs and tastes.

Vows exchanged, feasts devoured and photos taken, it’s time to remove the jackets, kick off the shoes, and really start celebrating! Dancing commences, accompanied by a bar and late night snacks. And for anyone in need of a rest, there’s space to cool off on the terrace as the sun goes down.
