Planning Your Wedding
Nestled at the southern tip of the south Lake District, Abbey House Hotel, which has just been voted as The Best Wedding Venue in Cumbria, offers the perfect venue for your wedding. Behind the imposing sandstone wall lies one of the Lake Districts best kept secrets and one of the most romantic venues in the area. As you sweep into the courtyard, the hotel takes your breath away with its dramatic facade and beautiful gardens. Set in 14 acres of stunning gardens and grounds, Abbey House Hotel is an ideal setting for your wedding and a picture perfect location for your big day.
Designed by world renowned architect Sir Edward Lutyens, the Abbey House Hotel offers a range of beautiful rooms for your civil ceremony or wedding reception ranging from the great Abbey Hall with its imposing grandeur and large picturesque windows, to the more intimate Furness rRoom where you can celebrate your big day with just a handful of family and friends.
A Picture Perfect Setting
Leaving your guests to soak up the atmosphere and enjoy a glass of something chilled, you will find plenty of locations throughout the hotel and grounds to have your perfect day captured and memories which will last forever.
The Wedding Breakfast
In summer, why not greet your guests on the front lawn or the terrace with a glass of champagne and canapes. This glorious setting offers stunning views of the gardens and surrounding countryside and whilst you have your photographs taken nearby, your party can soak up the atmosphere.
Your wedding breakfast can be held in the Great Abbey Hall which can seat up to 86 or the Furness room which is for more intimate gatherings, can accommodate up to 25. Larger numbers can be catered for in the Duddon Suite or if you prefer, why not have a marquee in the grounds.
Food is one of the most important aspects of any wedding day and our team of chefs will ensure your chosen menu is prepared with care to create a truly memorable wedding breakfast for you and your guests. The head chef and his team prepare a wide choice of food from simple, light dishes, to modern dishes using locally sourced produce. We offer a variety of dishes to suit every taste and you can choose to tailor make your own menu with a choice from our wedding selection.
The Evening Reception
Following your wedding breakfast, the celebrations can continue with music or entertainment of your choice. Guests can enjoy the gardens on a summer's night but still get mixed up in the excitement of your evening reception. Why not hold a hog roast or barbecue which would be the perfect solution for your evening guests.
A fireworks display can be arranged at the end of the evening to send you and your loved one off on a life of love and happiness.
The Abbey House Hotel also offers exclusive use of the hotel suites so you and your guests can enjoy the day in perfect intimacy. Why not choose to hold your wedding ceremony in the Great Abbey Hall which is steeped in history and tradition followed by your evening reception in our more modern Duddon Suite.
