We cater for intimate and exclusive weddings, (up to 32 people) with first class, friendly service, making us one of the most revered venues in the Lake District in which to get married. We have mastered the art of events, along with attention to detail and service, ensuring that your day is a success and the memories of your magical day will last a lifetime.

You have the opportunity to marry in one of our elegant Arts and Craft rooms before mingling outside with the breath taking vista of the Brathay Valley and Langdale Fells. We have five acres of grounds and woodlands for you and your guests to enjoy providing the perfect backdrops for your wedding photos.

We work very closely with a range of local businesses that we have known for many years and who would be more than happy to assist with your wedding organisation. For catering, we highly recommend using the services of Nick Foster for the canapés and wedding breakfast, a superb award winning local chef who offers ‘outside catering’ for exclusive venues. We also have strong links with a variety of entertainment and florists which we will guide you through, so whether it is a classical wedding or themed we have the experience and the passion to help.

As you have the private use of Nanny Brow, 28 of your guests can stay in our 14 luxury rooms and suites (including your bridal suite). Then, share your first morning as a married couple surrounded by those you love the most, as you join your family and friends for breakfast.
