Silverholme Manor Full Description
For wedding celebrations Silverholme Manor is for hire any day of the week for a 3 night package; giving you the choice between weekend or mid-week packages. Silverholme is licensed to hold civil wedding ceremonies in the Coach House, Drawing Room, Dining Room, as well as outside on the lawns that sweep down to and overlook Lake Windermere. The Coach House is a beautiful stone building that is flooded with natural light and has capacity for up to 100 seated guests for the ceremony. As well as civil ceremonies, you may opt for a humanist ceremony or for those of you who would prefer a church ceremony, there are beautiful lakeland churches near by. Silverholme sleeps 18 in total in 8 bedrooms in the Manor house itself and a further bedroom in the romantic Coachman's Cottage in the grounds (and adjacent to the Manor house itself). There are a further 39 holiday cottages on the 5,000 acre Graythwaite estate, which serve as optional accommodation for your remaining guests. Two of these, Low Graythwaite Hall and Hullet Hall are within walking distance of Silverholme. We have Graythwaite Adventure on the estate, who can arrange for all sorts of fun activities for your guests from 4x4 off road driving to axe throwing, paddle boarding and clay pigeon shooting. We are here to make your stay 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 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. We have handpicked them ourselves, as we know their products and services match the outstanding level of quality Silverholme Manor prides itself on.

Best weekend of our lives!
Wow wow wow!!! We had a magnificent weekend celebrating our wedding at Silverholme Manor for 150 guests. We used every inch of the stunning venue and really made the most of the panoramic views of the lake and the estate. The bedrooms are gorgeous and the living spaces feel like a stately home, we really felt like king and queen for the weekend! We loved the fact we could take over the property for the weekend and have complete control and freedom. It was made even better by the fact there’s no charge for corkage which is very rare for a wedding venue. Vanessa and her team could not have been more helpful and she went out of her way to make us feel special. We can’t wait to come back to Graythwaite for our anniversary in years to come and we will always look back on our wedding day with a massive grin!! Thank you!
Response from the venue
Thank you Grace and Jack for your kind words. We loved having you here at Silverholme Manor! Your wedding was amazing and I know that all your guests had great fun too. I was very impressed by the brave group of you who went for a wild swim in the lake! We wish you all the very best in the future and definitely you must come back here many more times to celebrate all those special wedding anniversaries !! All the very best, Vanessa

Why we picked Silverholme as our wedding venue!
Why we picked the stunning venue, Silverholme… There were several factors that influenced our decision. Firstly, we wanted a venue that offered a picturesque view of the lake. It was important to us that our guests could enjoy the beautiful surroundings of the Lakes. We desired a unique and exclusive experience for everyone involved. Silverholme provided us with the opportunity to have the venue exclusively for the entire weekend, allowing our immediate family and bridal party to stay on-site. Another reason we chose Silverholme was the flexibility it offered. We wanted to have the freedom to design the day exactly as we envisioned it. The venue allowed us to personalise every aspect of our celebration. Silverholme's natural beauty was simply breathtaking. Waking up with a cup of coffee and gazing at the lake from the house was a truly magical experience. Lastly, the Silverholme team are amazing, Vanessa in particular is extremely organised, professional and honest which is all you can wish for when planning your wedding. Vanessa ensured that everything was dealt with from the moment we booked until the day we departed - thank you so much!
Response from the venue
Molly and Andrew were super organised and created such a fun weekend in the Lakes for all their guests - with activities such as paddle boarding on the Lake. They chose to get married in a local Church and then their guests returned to Silverholme for a beautiful reception. Many of their guests stayed on the Graythwaite estate and so they really made the best of this stunning location. Charlotte at Karen Rhodes catering and Tom from Kindred Spirits provided the delicious food and cocktails!

Glorious Venue!
I have had the pleasure of working on this epic site a few times and each time doesn't disappoint! The team are super helpful and fun to be around and the place is just so wonderfully styled. Each client has a great time and loves the freedom of roaming this spectacular place on such an important celebration. There are many ways to utilise the space and you must take in that view as much as possible!
Response from the venue
We love Annabel ! Annabel has been the wedding planner for many of the beautiful weddings we have had at Silverholme Manor. She is super efficient, extremely knowledgeable but best of all, she is an absolute pleasure to work with. Looking forward to working with you again in 2024. All the best, Vanessa

Wedding of our Dreams
We cannot recommend Silverholme Manor and the surrounding properties enough, they were absolutely perfect and in one of the most amazing settings in the UK. The beauty of the Manor with modern day comforts were absolutely perfect for our week long celebrations. I absolutely loved being lady of the manor albeit for 5 days and Eric certainly settled in well to being Lord!! The stunning views, along with the peace and tranquility of the location, the beautiful wildlife all made our wedding truly special and memorable for us and all of our guests. All of whom could not praise it enough, from the comfort of the big beautiful rooms with amazing views and beds that they slept well in, to the little luxuries such as the soaps and handwashes (they truly smelt amazing) , bathrobes (the kids wanted to take them home!) and all the kitchen facilities and comfortable lounges that made it a truly special week. Vanessa you were amazing, our guests didn't get to see the hardwork you put into things for us, that is testament to how seamless everything was. Thank you for greeting us on arrival, for the welcome hampers and wines (lovely touch, very personal) to helping on the wedding day, helping me with my dress, and getting me unstuck! We really appreciated everything you did, the changes you have made to the property have only enhanced it and the Graythwaite Estate is truly lucky to have you. Thanks again, and we will be back one day, not sure when, but Silverholme Manor and Graythwaite Estate will always have a special place in our heart.
Response from the venue
Dear Bev & Eric, Thank you so much for your kind words. You truly were an amazing couple to have at Silverholme - the love you share for one another was so evident that it was infectious. Your wedding was intimate and special. I am so glad that Silverholme was the perfect backdrop to your imaginations and all your hard work. I loved the owl flying down the aisle with the rings - that was a first for me! Finally, a huge personal thank you for leaving Silverholme immaculate! Best wishes, Vanessa

Brilliant Wedding Venue!!!
We have a tremendous wedding at Silverholme! We stayed for a full week with our closest friends walking in the local hills, flinging ourselves into the lake, having opulent meals in the enormous dining room and enjoying the beautiful rooms and grounds. The venue was completely perfect for a wedding, with ample space of our marquee, a beautiful coach house for the ceremony, and plenty of space in the house to hosts guests. The lawn is beautiful for the guests to enjoy drinks on and they were able to dash for cover when the occasional shower arrived. There was also ample room for a kitchen to be set up next to marquee. We had a magical day in a beautiful location where the staff at Silverholme were extremely helpful in getting everything set up. I couldn't recommend it more!
Response from the venue
Nick and Miranda nailed it! Staying for a week at Silverholme is the ideal way to relax and unwind with family in friends in such a stunning location. This gave them plenty of time to prepare for the wedding ceremony itself - a beautiful ceremony with lovely flowers in the Coach House.

Fantastic location, even better staff!
Vanessa, the office manager at Silverholme, is an absolute hero! For our wedding at the Silverholme Manor, the tent provider (All About ME Marquees) I chose (going against Vanessa's recommendation) neglected to do a site visit until 72 hours before the wedding. This resulted in very serious and major last-minute issues. Instead of throwing their hands in the air and complaining, Vanessa and her team tried to come up with alternative solutions, all of which she communicated to us in a succinct and timely fashion. What could have been an absolute nightmare turned out to be a beautiful event. This is because Vanessa is a true professional who went beyond her roles and responsibilities to make sure everything ran smoothly. She is also the loveliest human being, always with a positive attitude and very invested in everyone having a great time. From the bottom of my heart, thank you very much! PS. The location is heavenly and the venue is gorgeous :)
Response from the venue
Birce and Max, thank you so much for your kind words. The most important thing here is that we solved the problems in time and that you had an amazing wedding and a lovely stay here at Silverholme !! You were a lovely couple to work with and things are always harder to organise from overseas but in the end none of this mattered. Please come back and spend some joyful anniversaries at Silverholme and on this beautiful estate. Best, Vanessa
