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 gorgeous south-facing 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. The area can also be used for ceremonies for up to 36 guests.

There are several period rooms available for ceremonies, from the cosy, book-lined study to the Drawing Room, where Elizabeth and her family would entertain writers such as Charlotte Brontë and Charles Dickens.

Celebrate in style
Ceremonies held in the Drawing Room can accommodate up to 36 loved ones, or for intimate services, the Study can accommodate up to 10 of your nearest and dearest.

Receptions and wedding breakfasts take place in the light and airy basement Servant’s Hall, which seats 36 friends and family. The on-site kitchen is available for outside caterers, and the staff can arrange drink receptions or open the venue’s bar.

We love...
The venue’s boudoir grand piano, Victorian furnishings, and furniture that can be arranged to suit your requirements.

Elizabeth Gaskell’s House only holds one wedding per day, so you will have exclusive use of the venue on your big day.
