Full Description
The Estate is comprised of a Victorian mansion with nine ensuite double bedrooms, a delightful country cottage, a newly renovated lodge house and a modern barn conversion, sleeping a total of 34 guests. All properties are decorated to an impeccable standard. Grand or intimate, indoor or out - Casterton Grange is flexible and encourages individual and unique weddings. The grounds are home to a lake, a natural aisle for summer weddings, a tennis court, a walled kitchen garden and an abundance of flora and fauna. There are several sites with enviable backdrops to pitch a marquee or tipi for larger weddings, or even a whole glamping village for extra accomodation! Facilities in the house include a billiards room with a full size snooker table and bar, interconnecting reception rooms, Sonos speakers throughout and a second kitchen for catering (ideal for drinks receptions as well as the day before and after your wedding). We have a fantastic team of recommended event planners and suppliers to suit all individual tastes. A member of our team will be by your side from the first enquiry, right up until your big day and beyond, ensuring everything runs smooth and your time on The Estate is nothing short of memorable. Once you are inside the gates of The Casterton Grange Estate it feels like a private and isolated haven. However, The Estate is deceptively easy to reach. It is situated just outside the picturesque and up-market town of Kirby Lonsdale, just 10 minutes from the M6 and 20 minutes from the mainline train station at Oxenholme with direct links to all major UK cities.

Simply the wedding of dreams
We recently got married at Casterton Grange and it is simply the venue of dreams. The size of the venue meant we could have all of our closest family, friends and bridal party to stay on the estate in the fantastic array of accommodation, for the entire weekend. The rooms are second to none and made all of our guests feel really special. From the walled garden to the aisle, the grounds are absolutely stunning and blew our guests away. Everyone also loved having a post-wedding dip in the hot tubs! Nothing was too much trouble for Patrick and Anneka and they really extended the family feel to us throughout the weekend so we felt completely at home- whilst living in a dream! Casterton Grange will always hold a special place in our memories and we will certainly be back to celebrate in the future. Holly & Jack x

better than we ever could have dreamed of
We got married at Casterton Grange Estate at the start of September and it was an incredible weekend, better than we could of ever dreamed of. We had a marquee on the grounds next to the stunning walled gardens. It was the ideal setting and all of our guests were blown away. The whole weekend was perfect from start to finish. The size of the venue meant that all of our family and bridesmaids stayed at the venue - which they all loved. It felt like our home away from home. Patrick and Anneka were so accommodating and welcoming, they truly made us feel so relaxed. We had a smaller event on Sunday with a band outside on the terrace and an extra large rounders game on the field. The hot tubs were an amazing touch which all of our family and friends got use of. We never wanted to leave and will definitely be back for special events in the future. Thank you so much Anneka and Patrick :)

the perfect place for us
We recently celebrated our wedding at Casterton Grange and couldn't recommend it more highly. We were looking for an intimate wedding venue where we could have the place to ourselves for a weekend and where all our guests could stay in one place. From the moment we arrived at CG we both knew it was the perfect place for us! Anneka was so helpful and helped arrange the whole wedding from coordinating with the church to caterers and confetti! We couldn't have done it all without you. We celebrated with a black tie dinner on the Friday on the terrace, the wedding day at a local church and then back to the house for various festivities and then late night dancing! Sunday we had a BBQ and then watched England lose on penalties in the euros final! The estate is so welcoming and really was our home for the weekend. Anneka was very relaxed and allowed us to enjoy everything to the max. It was really everything we could have dreamed of. All our guests said it was the best wedding they have ever been to and will be coming back to Casterton Grange for holidays. Thanks so much Anneka and we cant wait to come back for our next party!

I would HIGHLY recommend Casterton Grange
Well what can be said about Casterton Grange. From the entrance of the drive, through the fabulous ground it lays rest, to the unbelievably breath taking house that awaits.. it is Fantastic. Anneka and team are on hand to make your occasion truly overwhelming. As a guest at our friends wedding, it made it not just a wedding but a memorable experience which allowed the outside world to be forgotten and the inside world to be the magic you focussed on! The chef and catering team were truly generous and geniuses.. the food was superior and they also acknowledged the guests which was a great touch. I wouldn’t just recommend Casterton Grange to family, friends and the unknown but I would HIGHLY recommend Casterton Grange. It’s an idyllic location which when catering for a wedding see’s one family extend to a bigger family at ease. Well done Anneka and team. You made the weekend more than enjoyable for all in attendance and to accommodate all without a single negative comment for the whole experience. I wish you all the best in the future and hope to visit again soon!

WOW WOW WOW
WOW WOW WOW… What can we say, thank you for making our wedding everything we’d hoped for and more. We decided to make a weekend of it rather than just one day. From the moment we met Anneka and Patrick (during lockdown) their hospitality, flexibility and attention to detail has been impeccable, they made every request possible. Not only did they run the house rental, which somehow made it feel like it was our own, they ran our wedding weekend faultlessly . Beautiful clean rooms with comfortable beds, luxurious bedding and toiletries were a huge hit with our guests. The house is like your own which is exactly how we wanted our wedding to feel. To be able to marry in the immaculate gardens was perfect and all our guests said it was the best wedding they’d attended. Thank you from the bottom our hearts. We shall definitely return for a staycation in the future

none of us wanted to leave
We have just spent the weekend (6-8August) at The Carterton Grange Estate celebrating our daughters wedding. This is such a stunning place it’s hard to find enough words to describe it! Non of us wanted to leave. The venue has everything you could wish for, including tennis courts, a lake, hot tubs, non of which we had time to use and a snooker room which was most certainly put to use! Each bedroom is individually styled with the largest and most comfortable beds and superb en-suites. Chef Bruno Birkbeck @ Northcote prepared the most wonderful meals and ensured non of us went hungry! Anneka, the host is wonderful! She made every single one of our party, which consisted or 26 adults, 5 children, 2 babies and dog Yogi, felt welcome and at home. Nothing is too much trouble for her! She is there when you need her (a dab hand at removing lipstick from The Father of the Bride’s shirt, 15 mins before the wedding ) and constantly supervising when you don’t even know she’s there! Anneka is the dream host. We would highly recommend this stunning venue for any family celebration.
