The Ferry House

Coastal, Country Barn, Public House and Restaurant

The Ferry House is a charming 16th century venue, with 4* accommodation, set in three acres of terraced lawns, rolling down to the Swale Estuary, an hour from London. The venue is full of character and country charm, open fire places, traditional beams and solid oak floors, and set in the very peaceful secluded hamlet of Harty.

We are licensed to hold ceremonies in the barn or outside in our oak gazebo. Your wedding breakfast and evening reception can either be held in the barn or event suite with private bar. We offer package or bespoke weddings, to ensure your day is exactly the way you want it. Our weddings team will take a personal approach to your day, from first viewing to the big day.

As members of Produced in Kent we are incredibly proud of our food. All our beef and lamb is from our family farm, all game is from our shoot on the Harty Estate and fresh produce from the kitchen garden. The Ferry House was also awarded Kent Dining Pub of the Year in 2014 and 2018.

To end your day in style we have eleven 4* B&B rooms on site, including our bridal suite, with a double spa bath and views of the gazebo and estuary. Just off-site we also own Mocketts cottages, a complex of four 4* cottages available for up to 50 guests.

Every wedding here is individual and unique. Our couples are welcome to come and decorate the venue as they please, and Exclusive Hire is available for weddings who prefer a more private affair. We offer lots of varying add-ons including a family owned tractor ride to arrive in true country style, dancefloor upgrades and even our own fire-pit with toasted marshmallows for the evening. We now also have a powder room to get ready in.
