Elizabeth Gaskell's House is a Grade II* listed restored Victorian property that once belonged to the writer, Elizabeth Gaskell. Built between 1835 and 1841, it's now surrounded by a beautiful garden oasis and a short driveway that leads 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 Brontë and Charles Dickens.

Celebrate in style
Ceremonies can be held in the Drawing Room, which can accommodate 35 friends and family.

Receptions and wedding breakfasts take place in the light and airy basement Servant's Hall. The house kitchen is available for outside caterers or the staff can arrange a drinks reception or afternoon tea for up to 35 loved ones.

We love...
The venue has a boudoir grand piano, Victorian furnishings and furniture that can be arranged to suit the couple's requirements
