Romantic, unique and welcoming, this Victorian gentleman’s summer residence offers grandeur on a human scale. Every inch a home, but with all of the best bits of a 5* hotel, it’s the perfect venue for weddings and civil partnerships.
Built in 1836 the house rests amidst the folds of its skirts - seven acres of beautifully landscaped gardens and majestic woodland – with views over to the lake. The grounds offer stunning backdrops for photography, lots of places to socialise and even more for private moments. You are never far from the sound of the River Troutbeck as it chatters along its route to the Lake and the gentle splash from the ornate fountain at the house’s grand entrance.
For weddings and civil partnerships outdoors, a crisp, white, licensed gazebo sits at the head of a velvety wedding green. Not using the wedding green but want to get here in a hurry? That’s fine; when we’re not using the green for those tying the knot outdoors it doubles as a handy helipad. And we’ve been busy just lately. Our grounds are positively glowing and a huge programme of refurbishment proceeded a big ‘Ta Dah’ moment for 20 beautifully refreshed and deliciously individual rooms for you to use on your big day.
Our Michelin-recommended restaurant prepares mouth-watering sit down wedding breakfasts for up to 100 guests with up to five courses beautifully presented and created from locally-sourced produce. Or ask about something different – a BBQ or hog roast outside perhaps, or a luxury buffet.
For evening celebrations we can host up to 130 guests. Weddings are about two very important people and a completely personal experience. Tell us what perfect looks like for you - and let’s build your day to your exact requirements.
We love showing people around this lovely house and it really does help you visualise what can be achieved.
