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.

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

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 :)

Glorious venue and wonderful team
Silverholme is the most magnificent place to get married in the Lake District. You will be able to see for your self the interior and exterior beauty of the place. But that is not all that makes it special. 1. There are very few, if any, places in the Lake District where you can combine a lakeside setting with enough accommodation for lots of guests. The Graythwaite estate of which Silverholme is a part has enough cottages within walking distance not to make travel between accommodation and venue ok. 2. The team were fantastic throughout and were incredibly helpful in making our vision for the event come true, whether it was a mountain top paella or turning the coach house in to a night club. 3.There is a great network of suppliers who are adept at navigating the idiosyncrasies of the location. We used Karen Rhodes, Little Barn Bar, Smoke and Steel and Original Marquees and would recommend them all. 4. You can bring your own booze! Finally a huge shout out to Vanessa who was instrumental in pulling things together.
Response from the venue
Dear Mike & Olivia, Thank you so much for your kind words. You were the first couple that I showed around Silverholme when I started my job here, so I will never forget you! I have been through the whole journey with you over the past year and a bit and I am so glad that we were able to create the wedding of your dreams! We even managed to organise "a first" with your fabulous paella lunch in a hideaway place on the Graythwaite estate. Delicious food in an outstanding location. Best, Vanessa

An awesome wedding
The most incredible place to get married. Surrounded by family and friends in fabulous grounds and the most impressive house, which accommodated the wedding party. The venue meant we could host events on Friday and Sunday as well as the "big day". Some awesome preferred suppliers who made the event so very special. Would absolutely recommend.

An Awesome Wedding
We planned the most amazing Wedding for our daughter and son-in-law. The venue at Silverholme Manor is awesome but even better is being able to build the wedding of 'their' dreams and having a Wedding weekend rather than a Wedding Day. The staff at Graythwaite were amazing and set everything up for success. They have a preferred supplier list second to none - who work together like a 'well-oiled-machine' The weather was incredibly kind - and who wouldn't want to take their marriage vows surrounded by the people they love the most in the world, with that view :)
Response from the venue
It was an absolute pleasure working with you and Megan and Tom. We pride ourselves on creating dream weddings and are pleased to say that even the weather obliged this time! A lovely family in a lovely setting - we hope that you will return one day to celebrate another meaningful event in this beautiful spot on the shores of Lake Windermere

Always a pleasure to shoot at this beautiful venue
Silverholme is one of my favourite Lake District wedding venues. You really can't beat the location and the unique offering of Silverholme. It manages to be grand and homely all at the same time. Absolutely adore photographing weddings here and hope to return many times in the coming years.
