Your wedding day can be over too quickly so why not choose Hidden River Cabins where your family and guests will be thrilled to enjoy a holiday whilst attending your wedding! Our luxury accommodation all have hot tubs and stunning views which will make everyone feel relaxed. We provide the catering and bar services for weddings and are able to tailor your menu to your requirements. We can offer Banqueting, 3 x Course Meals, BBQ's, Hog Roasts etc. To build on our current facilities Hidden River Cabins are brimming with excitement as we are embarking on the construction of a beautiful new Hidden River Barn set in a stunning riverside location. The Barn will be designed to incorporate a mixture of both new and old features boasting seating for up to 250 guests. With a mezzanine level overlooking the ancient woodland and the River Lyne this will be the perfect location for your ceremony or a more intimate celebration. We have artists' impressions and architectural drawings available to view, the Barn is currently being lovingly constructed with the same quality ethos that Hidden River Cabins operates across the entire site whilst making the most of the natural beauty of the area. The Hidden River Barn will be completed in Winter 2019/20 and we are currently taking appointments for show rounds for forward bookings for weddings in 2020 onwards.
