Rustic Barn Weddings in the Lake District 


As one of only two licensed barns in the Lake District, our 16th century barn is unique, romantic and approved for civil ceremonies. So, you can now get married under the eaves of the barn with your congregation inside, or outside with spectacular views of the surrounding fells.

The barn is not just utilised for weddings of course. It is a wonderful space for all manner of celebrations, with live music or a DJ. Measuring approximately 10m x 5.5m and with a capacity ranging from 40 for afternoon teas or formal dining to 80 for a hog-roast or buffet, every kind of occasion can be managed. Indoor and outdoor seating is available and we are fully licensed for alcohol and live music, with cask ales and keg lager.

Buffets and prepaid drinks can be served in our pretty garden gazebo situated next to the barn. This also doubles as our own Photobooth which will provide a you and your guests with fun and entertainment throughout the wedding day.

The barn is fully decorated with a plethera of fairylights, beech tree decorations and apple blossom all around the eaves of the barn including a stunning arch around the open double doors where oyu can stand beneath to be married while your guests sit outside. Our handmade wicker heart sparkles with fairylights and adds a stunning focal point to the end of the barn. Add your own touches with a little colour coordinated bunting and your own flowers and tealights.
The outdoor terrace and gazebo come alive at dusk with hundreds of dancing fairylights - Sit outside and enjoy the stunning sunsets over Rydal Water.
