Full Description
The Estate is comprised of a Victorian mansion with nine ensuite double bedrooms, a delightful cottage, lodge house and barn conversion, sleeping a total of 34 guests (extra bedrooms available on request). All properties are decorated to an impeccable standard. Grand or intimate, indoor or out - Casterton Grange is flexible, fabulous and the perfect venue to begin your happily ever after. Facilities include a billiards room with a full size snooker table and bar, interconnecting reception rooms, Sonos speakers throughout and a second kitchen for catering. The grounds are home to a lake, a natural aisle for summer weddings, a tennis court, a walled kitchen garden and an abundance of flora and fauna. There are several sites with enviable backdrops to pitch a marquee or tipi for larger weddings, or even a whole glamping village for extra accomodation! We have a fantastic team of recommended event planners and suppliers to suit all individual tastes. A member of our team will be by your side from the first enquiry, right up until your big day and beyond, ensuring everything runs smooth and your time on The Estate is nothing short of memorable. Once you are inside the gates of The Casterton Grange Estate it feels like a private and isolated haven. However, The Estate is deceptively easy to reach. It is situated just outside the picturesque and up-market town of Kirby Lonsdale, just 10 minutes from the M6 and 20 minutes from the mainline train station at Oxenholme with direct links to all major UK cities.

The Most Incredible Time!
We hired out the Casterton Estate for joint birthday celebrations with all of our friends and family and had the most incredible time. Every single thing about the place is amazing; the decor is incredible and every bedroom is so spacious with a beautiful en suite and a lot of space. The house is equipped very well and the communal areas are perfect for large groups wanting to spend time together! We were given great recommendations for the local town which is beautiful and lots to explore within walking distance. Would 100% recommend to anyone wanting a weekend/ week away or a beautiful place for a wedding or another kind of celebration. Would love to come back in summer as the outdoor space is amazing!

"you'll genuinely never want to leave"
Our wonderful photographer Tiree first told us about Casterton Grange in our hunt for the perfect wedding venue. We arranged a visit and instantly fell in love…. Casterton strikes the perfect balance between being the grand, elegant country house it is and being a warm and welcoming family home. We spent a magical week in the main house on the run up to our wedding with our friends and family. Patrick, Anneka and Tammy went above and beyond to make sure our every need was met during our stay, paving the way for what culminated in the wedding day of our dreams. We watched with wonder whilst under the guidance of our superstar wedding planner Emma, the house was transformed on our wedding day into the most perfect space to exchange our vows. The beauty of the house and gardens offered up a never ending list of options for amazing wedding pictures and the grounds were just perfect for the wedding party tipi we’d dreamed of! The only down side of a stay at Casterton is that you’ll genuinely never want to leave. We can’t think of a more perfect way of celebrating our anniversaries though, than returning here in the years to come.
