Elizabeth Gaskell’s House is a restored Victorian property that once belonged to the writer, Elizabeth Gaskell. The Grade II* listed venue was built between 1835 and 1841 and is now surrounded by a beautiful garden oasis and a short driveway to the pillared entrance. Guests are welcome to explore the gardens which have planted borders, winding paths, a heavily scented pergola and native planting schemes. There’s a range of period rooms available for ceremonies from the cosy, book-lined study to the Drawing Room where Elizabeth and her family used to entertain writers such as Charlotte Bronte and Charles Dickens.
