Cottage Courtyard Weddings

Be swept off your feet with venues in a world that has romanced the whole nation

We encourage viewing your wedding as a three-day event, allowing you to relax in luxury, enjoying your celebrations with your family and close friends nearby.

The Venues

Choose from our three venues: a Georgian manor house, a Victorian courtyard and lakeside bliss.


A Silverholme Wedding | Rachel Joyce Photography

This gorgeous Georgian manor house is the epitome of refined grandeur. The house itself boasts a perfect blend of period character with modern luxuries. Its private gardens sweep down to the shores of Lake Windermere itself.

Silverholme is licensed to hold civil ceremonies in the Coach House, Drawing Room, Library and Dining Room. We can arrange ceremonies inside the house for up to 25 and the Coach House for up to 100. Humanist ceremonies can be set up in the gardens overlooking the lake for up to 200 guests.

Celebrations for up to 45 guests can take place in the Coach House. For larger festivities of up to 200, a marquee can be placed either next to the house or further down by the lake.

Silverholme sleeps 18 and the holiday cottages on the estate provide further accommodation for up to 134 people, allowing you to have your guests with you throughout the celebrations.

The house has a dedicated team, which is on hand to help with all your planning needs. We also offer a Concierge service arranging anything from chefs to helicopter flights and more. Please see The House for more details.

Silverholme Manor is delighted to be listed with how to I do.

The Cottage Courtyard

The Beginning of a Wonderful Journey Together | Lucy Little Photography

Available from September – March, the Cottage Courtyard is nestled in enchanting woodlands, making for a beautiful fairy tale location.

This venue offers the most flexibility in that you can use all your own suppliers. You also have the opportunity to use the on-site facilities of an indoor swimming pool, with the Lake only a short stroll away.

A marquee can be placed on a groomed paddock within the courtyard area. You will also have exclusive use of the 13 quaint yet luxe cottages that sleep up to 82 guests.

Please note that the Cottage Courtyard is not licensed for civil ceremonies, but does offer the opportunity for a humanist ceremony to be held in these quaint yet magical grounds.
