The County of Cumbria
Cumbria is well known for many things, including rain and hills to round sausages and Kendal mint cake. Cumbria is home to the Lake District, England’s largest National Park and perhaps the most idyllic countryside in the UK. This beautiful area spans over 40 miles and is home to the famous Lake Windermere. What a beautiful setting for your special day...
The Lake District
Besides the picturesque landscape there are many interesting and quaint attractions for visitors to the area. You could visit the National Trust preserved Beatrix Potter Gallery and see orginal artwork from the Peter Rabbit children's books, or take a boat ride on the scenic Lake Windermere. If steam railways appeal to you then try the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway, an unforgettable ride by narrow guage trains from the Lake District's coast to it's highest mountain.
Cumbria wedding venues
Fancy getting married in a Castle? Then book Augill Castle - the Cumbria wedding venue with a difference. Full of grandeur but also intimacy, Augill Castle is a complete package where the Castle is exclusively yours for your special day. Hold your ceremony in the music room complete with grand piano, where North East Wedding Band Funk Conspiracy have played themselves, creating a truly exceptional atmosphere. Dine in the extraordinary dining room with eighteen foot oak tables, and walk down sweeping staircases lit by stained glass windows. Situated within fifteen acres of grounds featuring wrought iron gazebos, Augill Castle offers a stunning wedding location with the castle as your backdrop.
Hold your wedding in the Lake District’s most romantic wedding venue, Linthwaite House Hotel.

Rydal Mount is in the heart of the Lake District, with glorious views of Lake Windermere, Rydal Water and the surrounding fells. Poet William Wordsworth's best loved home, Rydal Mount is an iconic place to hold your wedding as it was here that he wrote many of his poems, one of which was his most famous, 'Daffodils'. Beautiful landscaped gardens overlooking Lake Windermere and beyond offer you and your guests a perfect place to relax and enjoy this historic gem.
Cumbria Hotels and Restaurants
The Drunken Duck Inn is a Gastropub in the heart of the Lake District, in the hills near Ambleside. They have an adventurous menu, an on site brewery and a seperate menu just for British and Irish cheese.
Holbeck Ghyll is a Michelin starred restaurant and having retained it for 10 years, is recognised as one of the best restaurants in the country. With quality ingredients, skill and creativity shown in preparation, Holbeck Ghyll offers sublime food whilst boasting stunning views of Lake Windermere from their Restaurant Rooms. Combine this with luxurious hotel suites and fabulous weddings, Holbeck Ghyll Country House Hotel is an ideal wedding delight.
Gilpin Lodge is a luxury restaurant and hotel. Some of the rooms even have outside hot tubs. They don't allow wedding receptions in the hotel but you could stay there for your honeymoon. Stay in one of the lake house suites and there is also a spa available for your use.
If you fancy a more casual evening dinner, try Lucy’s on a Plate, a café by day and restaurant by night! Lucy’s emits a non-pretentious feel the minute you walk through the door. Scrubbed pine tables, chapel chairs, cosy fire and the walled garden all compliment the atmosphere here, and after 6pm the evening menu is freshly typed up every day, so no two days are the same!
