Celebrate your birthday in vintage style at Preston Court, either in the Long Barn and Bar or, for larger gatherings, in the Kent Barn.


We have our very own fully licenced, stocked and staffed bar serving Kentish ales, ciders and fine wines. Please contact us for details of hire charges which will depend on the length of the event, day of the week and the time of year.
