Ruffynes Barn

Ruffynes Barn: Unique Rustic Chic

Nestled in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the outskirts of Aldington, Ruffynes Barn is a Grade II listed venue that combines olde worlde charm with modern amenities. Dating back to the 16th century, this five bay barn has been lovingly and meticulously restored to its former glory whilst still offering the comforts of a contemporary event space. Covering a generous 250 square metres, the barn’s imposing oak structure and rustic chic creates an ambience that is both dramatic and enticing.

Idyllic Setting

Sitting on the banks that overlook Romney Marsh, Port Lympne Zoo and the Channel beyond Ruffynes Barn is a breathtaking backdrop for any celebration. Offering a magnificent setting for up to 120 seated guests for a wedding ceremony or breakfast, the barn can also accommodate up to 200 guests for an evening reception.

Historic 12th Century Church

Couples interested in a traditional church ceremony have a short stroll down the country lane to St Martin’s Church in Aldington (whose dramatic tower became a significant landmark for both sailors and smugglers) allowing for a seamless transition between your wedding events.

Versatile Event Space

Ruffynes Barn is the perfect venue for weddings, but also provides an ideal setting for various events including civil weddings and partnerships, christenings, private parties and corporate events.
