Romantic, unique and welcoming, this Victorian gentleman’s summer residence offers grandeur on a human scale. Every inch a home, but with all of the best bits of a five-star hotel, it’s the perfect venue for weddings and civil partnerships.
Built in 1836 the house rests amidst the folds of its skirts - seven acres of beautifully landscaped gardens and majestic woodland – with views over to the lake. The grounds offer stunning backdrops for photography, lots of places to socialise and even more for private moments. You are never far from the sound of the River Troutbeck as it chatters along its route to Lake Windermere and the gentle splash from the ornate fountain at the house’s grand entrance.
For weddings and civil partnerships outdoors, a crisp, white, licensed gazebo sits at the head of a velvety wedding green. Not using the wedding green but want to get here in a hurry? That’s fine; when the green is not in use for those tying the knot outdoors, it doubles as a helipad. The grounds at Broadoaks are positively glowing.
Broadoaks underwent a considerable programme of refurbishment and boasts 20 luxurious and individually decorated boutique bedrooms for you to use on your big day.
The Michelin-recommended restaurant prepares mouth-watering sit-down wedding breakfasts for up to 100 guests with up to five courses beautifully presented and created from locally-sourced produce. Or ask about something different – a BBQ or hog roast outside perhaps? For evening celebrations the Orangery transforms into a breathtaking party space where you can invite up to 130 guests, or, for a more intimate affair, you can enjoy a live pianist in the music room.
Beautiful to view and magical to feel, one thing is for certain and that is that you and your guests will never forget this special place.
