Crown Lodge

Crown Lodge is based in the heart of the North Downs, an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Truly captivating, stunning, you cannot find a better location to hold your wedding

From the moment, you arrive at Crown Lodge you are captivated by the beauty of the panoramic views. Crown Lodge has been created with nature and natural elegant beauty in mind. We understand that it is important to have an intimate environment that makes this special moment a magical lasting memory.

Crown Lodge is a rustic romantic cabin, great for summer weddings, but equally welcoming in the winter months. The Lodge has been styled with simple Scandinavian features on the outside and a warm cosy natural wood interior.

The Main Lodge is one large room and there is plenty of space, seating 80-90 for a wedding breakfast with an additional 40-50 evening guests.

There is also an indoor back up ceremony area should the weather not be good enough to have the Ceremony outside.

The bar area is within the main room & we have an adjacent additional room suitable for several uses.

The Lodge is surrounded by lawns and small ancient woodland with an amazing avenue of trees perfect for photo’s

Crown lodge is located only 1 mile from the village of Wye

(Voted one of the Villages to live - Times Newspaper).
