Full Description
For wedding celebrations the house is for hire from Friday to Monday. Silverholme is licensed to hold civil wedding ceremonies in the Coach House, Drawing Room, Library, Dining Room and on the Lawn, overlooking Lake Windermere. We can arrange the ceremonies inside the house for up to 25 guest and on the Lawn and in the Coach House for up to 100 guests. If you are looking for something different humanist ceremonies can be organised at Grubbins Point for up to 150. There are also beautiful Lakeland Churches nearby if you would prefer a church ceremony. Silverholme sleeps 18 in total and there are also a further 18 holiday cottages on Graythwaite estate as optional accommodation for your guests. This allows you to keep your guests close by for the entire weekend celebrations. We offer a concierge service at Silverholme and can arrange for anything from chefs to helicopter flights to clay pigeon shooting. We are here to your day that little bit more fantastic. A marquee or tipi (not included) can be sited on the purpose built astro turf next to the house (the astro turf means there is no chance of any mud come rain or shine) or down the gardens in the bottom field by the lake. Our state-of-the-art speakers are included in our wedding package so there is no need to hire a pa system. We can be as involved or uninvolved as you desire. Our only requirement is that you use one of our approved suppliers for your catering and marquee/tipi (required for all weddings with more than 75 guests). We have handpicked them ourselves as we know their products and services match the outstanding level of quality Silverholme Manor prides itself on.
