Testimonials

Charlton Park really was the most wonderful venue for our wedding. It is a beautiful House and our guests were stunned at the fantastic grounds. We are so grateful to Angela And Gubby for their kindness and professional manner both in the run up to the wedding and on the day itself. Charlton Park truly gave us the fairy tale wedding of our dreams.
Emma Noble and Conrad Baker

Lewis & Holly Walsh
Charlton Park was a beautiful venue for our wedding, Gubby and Angela went above and beyond to make our day special. They ensured the whole process was both easy and personal from the start, leaving us stress-free and able to concentrate on planning and enjoying a wonderful ceremony. From our first visit they made us feel like our wedding was a special event, not just one of many weddings churned out each year
Emma & Sebastian Bell
On behalf of Andrew and his global staff I wanted to thank you and Gubby for helping to make last week's conference a success. All were impressed with the venue and location and agreed how nice it was to be planted in the middle of the English countryside in such splendid surroundings and isolation. Angela, your attention to detail and close pre-conference work with my colleague Janet clearly helped in this regard and of course your continued attention to detail and general accessibility during the two days was of great assistance to me and the whole meeting. The food was exceptionally good and the lay-out in the Ballroom enhanced the experience - some were just waiting for the pianist to 'appear'.

Steve Johnson, National Account Manager, Landmark Information Group
Dear Gubby and Angela. Just a quick note to say thank you for everything you did to make our wedding so magical. Charlton Park was a stunning background to our day and everybody loved it. Our photographer in particular was in raptures about the photo opportunities in the grounds! The service you provided to us was over and above what we expected and you ensured that the day ran smoothly. Thank you so much
Holly and James
A note to thank you and your team for providing an excellent venue and organisation for our Planning Seminar and Kent Branch Committee meeting.
Judith Norris, CLA Kent Branch Chairman
Thank you very much for the excellent location, organisation and food for our Board’s Strategy workshop.  Everyone who attended was very impressed by the atmosphere at Charlton Park, which made the fairly intense discussions and deliberations much easier.  The food was also exceptional, the only shame being that we could not manage to get through all of the bountiful lunch and afternoon cakes!  Thank you again and I hope we will be able to use your facilities in the future
David Willis, Head of Corporate Services, East Kent Housing, Shepway Area Office
It was a great pleasure in so many ways for colleagues to enjoy an away day for the Sidney De Haan Research Centre at Charlton Park in January this year. The setting is quite magnificent, the house beautiful, comfortable, warm and inviting. The food was delicious with copious amounts of tea, coffee and pastries on arrival, a wonderful lunch taken in the stunning ballroom and afternoon tea to send us on our way. No detail of our needs for the day had been overlooked with the exemplary service underpinning the day’s timetable. I would be delighted to recommend Charlton Park to anyone wishing to take advantage of a hard to match facility anywhere in the south east
Professor Grenville Hancox MBE, Canterbury Christ Church University
I just wanted to thank you again for an event people are still talking about. Hopefully the exposure will offer you new business opportunities. I will certainly spread the word.
Natalia Sukhram, Transmanche Enterprise Network Project Officer, Canterbury City Council
"It was just brilliant last Thursday – I cannot tell you how impressed everyone was. Thank you both so very much for all you did to make it such a success. Often the meetings are in hot, stuffy hotel rooms, so we were really chuffed to be able to show off Charlton Park and its excellent facilities. So thank you both most sincerely for making it such a good meeting and for all your hard work. I know how much effort has to go into this sort of thing, and I am certain that we will be back
Denise Pettit, Chief Executive’s Office, Canterbury City Council
Thank you so much for everything. You made everything so perfect for Sarah and I. It was a truly magical place and such a beautiful setting for us to celebrate – thank you. You really did work so hard. We have had so many wonderful letters of thanks and there is a recurring theme – how wonderful Charlton Park, the grounds and the marquee looked
Edward & Sarah Maitland-Carew
It was a lovely occasion and the setting in the grounds, in the sunshine was just about perfect. There were many changes since the first plan, so thank you for putting up with the many changes. The final result was a masterpiece judging by the letters and phone-calls we have already had. For any event it is always the extra little touches that count, the additional pots. You could not have been kinder or more hospitable
Colonel M J Ball
There couldn’t have been a more perfect setting for our wedding day. The tranquillity and beauty of the house and grounds provided the most wonderful setting.
Ben & Rhian Hancox
I dreamt of a traditionally English country garden wedding and Charlton Park certainly offers this. It is the most serene and peaceful setting you could wish for
Hannah & Dave Millyard
Giving a Talk in the Ballroom at Charlton Place was an enjoyable occasion, as the proportions of the room made it feel like being with a large group of friends. The easy acoustics also meant it was comfortable to converse with members of the audience and the room is so beautiful too, both in terms of its decoration and of its views into the gardens and park.
Dr. David Starkey - Historian
I came to Charlton Park to talk on Ian Fleming, James Bond and more serious issues to do with Intelligence. The Ballroom and the setting are superb and the audience clearly enjoyed being there. The organisation under the charming Mrs Twigg was first class and I liked thoughtful touches such as serving the authentic James Bond martinis afterwards. I think the Foundation will be an important asset to the locality
Nigel West - Author
A charming country house with lovely settings and professional standards, capable of hosting international musicians; we've had some of the most successful concerts there, with best comments and added praises on such a welcoming venue.
Sylviane Martell - Administrator Canterbury Festival
I thoroughly enjoyed the informative talk by Nigel West at the weekend on Ian Fleming. The ballroom at Charlton Park is a magnificent setting for such gatherings, and the drinks and canapés afterwards added a splendid finishing touch to the evening. I very much look forward to other such event.
Nog Sawdon - Bossingham Kent
It gives me great pleasure to be able to express my thanks on behalf of the Venerable Order of the Hospital of St John of Jerusalem. The ballroom made a wonderful setting for soprano Christine Hubbard's classical programme. A canapés and drinks reception was held in the Hall and Drawing Room before the concert for the audience of nearly 70 people. It was a spectacular occasion and we raised nearly £2000 for the charity. I should particularly like to thank you for your support and suggestions, which made this such a successful event in your magnificent house.
Dr. David Barton - Knight of St John & Member of the St John Council for Kent
The very charming Charlton Park made the perfect setting for Dulcima's 16th Birthday Ball. The ballroom is quite beautiful and with the addition of 80 guests dancing in ballgowns and D.J.'s the scene was even more exquisite than Dulcima hoped it would be. We will never forget her wonderful Ball. Charlton Park is a very special place.
Jenny Showan - Bridge Kent
The Talk by David Starkey to the Friends of Barham Chaurch held last June was a great success, not only because of the popularity of the speaker but also for the venue. Charlton Park boasts a house of great character set in beautiful parkland, which certainly was very much appreciated by all who attended that evening
James Linington - Chairman of The Friends of Barham Church
