Willowbeck Lodge, Carlisle

On the outskirts of Carlisle, North Cumbria, this venue is nestled among beautiful mature willow trees and overlooking a delightful pond. The Lodge and very Hugge style Cedar Cabin offers beds for 20 guests and outside has a great sized lawn for a marquee or tipi.

Park House Barn, Kendal

A beautiful ancient barn on a working farm and looking out to sea… yes really! A charming venue with a great team and complete flexibility to make it your own. I loved working with this site as the family run site is so full of character… and characters!

High Barn, Eden Hall nr Penrith

New venue for the North Cumbria area! Rustic in all the right ways and flexible for your own personalities to be injected in. We can assist in making sure this space is perfected and managed wonderfully, taking out any DIY worry.

Belmount Hall, Ambleside

Once again we have found a unqiue and stunning setting in the heart of the Lakes. With views down the valley, picture perfect accommodation and plenty of options for celebrating, this is worth investigating. Still fairly DIY too so you can add your own touches.

Low House, Armathwaite

This private house is set in a beautiful location overlooking the River Eden and perfect gardens. The house is private but the grounds are available to use for marquees. You can also have your wedding ceremony in a quaint wooden garden gazebo! Picture perfect and secluded.

Calthwaite Hall, Penrith

Set in beautiful grounds and with delightful accommodation including hot tub lodges, this setting is a great secluded option. The Hall's owners are happy to help with your plans and the Hall itself has some unique spaces to use such a truly special staircase!

New House Farm, Lorton

Set amongst the fells this venue looks lovely and acts as a blank canvas for your ideas. The barn and attached kitchen can be hired as well as the gardens. This allows you to really put your plans into action without worrying about matching with an existing pallette of colours etc. Creatives get your mood boards ready!


Penrith Rugby Club

If you need a big, friendly space or a lovely site for a marquee, this club house has it! They put the money raised towards the Childrens Club which is a wonderful community asset. Accessible and flexible and great on a budget. 


Coniston Coppermines, Coniston

A mile above the village with breath taking views, there sits a quirky patch of land with some fabulous accommodation! While the space is being converted to a tourism hotspot, take advantage of this unique venue. The waterfalls and clear stream running alongside plus towering fells make this a place not to miss. Your guests will be in awe! 

Silverholme Manor / Grubbins Point / Graythwaite Cottages, Windermere

Silverholme is esquisite on the inside and out, complete with views over Windermere, a Coachhouse for ceremonies and gardens for marquees / tipis.

With plenty of self catering accommodation just up the road, Grubbins is a wonderful DIY location. Set right on the edge of the lake, it can be the blank canvas for your own style. 

Blaithwaite House, Wigton

Huge amount of accommodation, stunning grounds, large barn, outdoor ceremony space, kids play area, even Laser Tag. This venue has a lot to offer and all for exclusive hire, to do with as you please. 

Search the County

Some options in this glorious County are open to Weddings and do many each year. Some on the other hand don't and so may need a third party to make it happen. Speak to us about the possibilities if you find a choice that may be inexperienced.
