Calthwaite Hall is a Gothic stone country house hidden in plain sight in the centre of a traditional Cumbrian village. The sweeping driveway, accessed through a majestic wrought iron gate, leads to the arched stone portico that's the centrepiece of the Edwardian Gothic hall. Couples will be able to admire the secret garden, historic terraces, curvaceous borders and listen to the singing birds and wildlife. This lovingly restored and private property is perfect for exploring the wilderness of the Lake District, the Cumbrian coast and the turbulent history of the Scottish Borders and Hadrian's Wall.
Celebrate in style
There are a variety of indoor and outdoor ceremony spaces available. The formal Drawing Room, which has a grand piano and log burner, can hold 110 loved ones.
The one-of-a-kind spiral staircase in the Hallway can accommodate 40 guests and provides a beautiful ceremony space with an abundance of photography opportunities.
Larger celebrations are held under the arched-stone portico, which can be decorated with a choice of flowers and garlands and can hold 200 friends and family.
The gardens expand over two and a half acres with delicate water features, formal terraces, natural woodland and can be used for ceremonies. Marquees and tipis can also be hired upon request.
Calthwaite Hall has invested in a new custom-built Victorian-style Orangery. This stunning building has a glass front with double doors opening onto a Mediterranean style garden with plants and herbs. The space has an elegant, neutral canvas that can be personalised to suit different themes and colour schemes, a full bar set-up with beer pumps and a designated dancefloor area. It's capable of seating 120 formally and 150 for an informal evening celebration.
The happy couple will receive a discount on accommodation for all guests.
