Not too far off the beaten path, but just enough to feel a world away, Broadoaks Country House occupies one of the most beautiful spots in the Lake District. Surrounded by well-manicured gardens and majestic woodland, and framed by the flush of the river that tumbles into Lake Windermere, this grand property is a special place that couples will never forget.
A sweeping driveway guides guests through seven acres of glorious gardens to a fountain settled at the front of this traditional Lakeland stone and ivy-clad country home. This Victorian gentleman’s summer residence offers grandeur on a human scale, with every inch a home, but with all of the best bits of a five-star hotel. The proportioned inside spaces are warm and inviting, mixing stylish modernity with inglenook fireplaces and period furniture. There are five licensed areas to host ceremonies, 20 individually-designed boutique bedrooms and award-winning dog-friendly facilities.
Celebrate in style
The William Morris Music Room was built onto the house in 1905 as a music room for Dr Charles. This charming space has room for 32 guests and boasts a vaulted ceiling, furniture that can be moved about to create a mini aisle and a large open fire that creates a cosy setting for winter weddings.
Alternatively, the Great Oaks & Small Oaks Room can hold 60 nearest and dearest. With original Victorian high ceilings, traditional mouldings and a gorgeous fireplace at one end of the room, this space looks out onto the surrounding green valley as well as the fast-flowing beck that runs from the village of Troutbeck.
For those wishing to tie the knot outdoors, The Upper Lawn provides the perfect setting with luscious colourful trees and space for 100 loved ones. This area doubles up as a helipad for those wanting to make a grand entrance.
The Orangery provides a light and airy ceremony space that brings the outdoors in, with views across the river and majestic woodland and room for 100 friends and family.
Couples will receive exclusive use of the property, the help of a wedding coordinator and a personalised order-of-the-day.
