Welcome to The Lost Village of Dode.

Romance in the Stones - A historic, legendary, hidden gem of a wedding and events venue, in the heart of the Kent countryside.

A unique, exclusive-use, lovingly restored Norman Place of Worship.

Far, far away, in a magical place, where time has stood still, in an almost forgotten valley between Luddesdown and Holly Hill, nestled in the North Kent Downs in the South East of England, there stands a beautiful, charming, enchanting, privately owned, romantic, former Norman church – the only trace of the now ‘lost’ village of Dode. 

This unique, lovingly restored, Norman, deconsecrated church, located within an amazing setting, is now available for intimate and private events, for up to 42 people:
