Hidden in plain sight in the centre of a traditional Cumbrian village is Calthwaite Hall. This Gothic stone country house has a sweeping driveway, accessed through a majestic wrought iron gate, which leads to a arched stone portico. Outside is a secret garden, historic terraces, curvaceous borders and lots of 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
Calthwaite Hall has invested in a new custom-built Victorian-style Orangery. This impressive 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 guests formally and 150 for an informal evening celebration.
Alternatively, 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 photo opportunities.
Large celebrations are held under the arched-stone portico, which can be decorated with a choice of flowers and garlands and can fit 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.
Couples will receive discounted accommodation rates for their guests.
