We also offer weddings for just the bride and groom/just a few guests and rather than our full wedding package we would be able to offer our Ball Room for the ceremony at a flat room hire rate and after the ceremony it would be up to the two of you really what you have in mind for your special day. We can of course simply reserve a table in the restaurant if you wish after or if you have anything else in mind, just let me know and we can have a look at different options. This offer is for a maximum of 15 guests.

Couldn’t have wished for a more perfect day!
The staff there were brilliant right from booking the venue and even after our big day. Hanna was so attentive, keeping in touch regularly right up until the day. The final meeting before the big day put me so much at ease, and the day just ran so smoothly. A beautiful hotel, amazing food, all the staff were fantastic and all in the beautiful Lake District. We couldn’t have asked for more!
