The most amazing Venue for our Tuscany style wedding in the Lake
We were lucky enough to get married at Town head Estate in May 2022 and it was the most incredible day for us both. From checking in, Tanya was there to greet us and took control of everything over the weekend to allow us to relax and enjoy it all. The Venue is stunning and allowed us to get the Tuscany wedding vibes in the lakes district so our families could attend. The Gin Bar was very popular with the guests and everyone loved the cocktail hour after the meal. From relaxing in the hot up with the bridal party the night before to getting ready in the most amazing beauty room in the morning was just perfect. We took full advantage of staying the weekend and had a BBQ at the boathouse on the Sunday & and boat ride which was the perfect ending. The Town Head Team literally go above and beyond with their service and co-ordination. We cant thank them enough for such an incredible weekend!

I wish we could get married every year just so we could come back
I can’t recommend Town Head enough for anyone looking for a beautiful place to get married! We had our wedding here in September 2021 and it was absolutely perfect. The barn, the grounds and the accommodation are all gorgeous and have been so well thought through. And the team at Town Head are incredible, nothing is too much to ask for and made our day run so smoothly. We loved having the place to ourselves Friday - Sunday, it really made it feel like a little wedding village and there’s so many options if you want to use the hot tubs, go for a boat trip or water sports to make your weekend a bit different! I wish we could get married every year just so we could come back for a weekend, we loved it that much! Cheryl and Team Town Head - thank you again, you’ve honestly created the most beautiful venue

The ideal place to get married!
When we looked at Town Head Estate last year as a possible wedding venue, it was still very much a building site. But we instantly fell in love with the location and the ability for guests to sleep there, having access to lake Windermere for a swim, gorgeous land which can be used in so many different ways and a really romantic greenhouse. Cheryl showed us around and explained all of her ideas for the place - from the bridal suite to the hot tubs and a jetty by the lake. She had it completely figured out. In the end it was clear for us that Town Head was it! We were lucky enough to get a weekend booking and our wedding took place in September '21 with the venue exactly how it had been described to us. The beautiful ceremony barn, the on-site accommodation, the boathouse, the bar and everything else was perfect. Throughout the planning process, Cheryl has been extremely patient, friendly and helpful, making sure we felt comfortable with everything she did. I think we may have won the price for asking the most questions in the lead up :D - but to every question, Cheryl had an answer or a solution (i.e. plans for rain, sign for ceremony music to start, where to best serve cocktails, the list goes on). She also put us in touch with other suppliers and was genuinely a great sound board for the plans we had in mind. This really put us at ease and we felt relaxed and excited when the weekend finally came. The day ran smoothly with the help of Cheryl and the team who were there to make sure everything was going well, which was hugely appreciated. All in all, we 100% recommend this venue which, due to the lovely owners, amazing location and perfectly renovated barns/accommodation - the ideal place to get married!

If we could marry here again we would in a heartbeat
Wow, there are no words! We booked the TH for our wedding whilst it was a building site, why you say? Because we had every faith in Cheryl’s vision of the final product! We 100% made the right decision! We had originally booked to have our ceremony in the boat house on lake Windermere but on the morning of the wedding it was raining and I mean RAINING! Cheryl asked me due to this and the walk down to the boathouse would we like our ceremony in the barn. We are truly thankful of this offer as it ended up being perfect! Even thinking about it now makes me emotional at how amazing it was. The stone walls of the building and adjoining to our reception area along with the gorgeous ambience of the lighting made it truly romantic! Even though the rain was non stop all day we feel it added to the vibe of our boho relaxed wedding and the photos are truly stunning. Tanya was our planner for the day and nothing was too big nor small of an ask! She did a wonderful job running around making sure everything was just perfect! If we could marry here again we would in a heartbeat and I truly hope one day we can renew our wedding at this gorgeous estate! Before the wedding when locals asked where we was getting married they stated it as the ‘new and exclusive’ place to get married and they were so right! Also if we had known how gorgeous the bridal cottage would end up being we would of booked to stay here too as it’s stunning, the attention to detail has the true wow factor and the bridal suite for getting ready was divine! Thank you all at TH for giving us the intimate wedding we had dreamt of!

It was unbelievable!
We held our wedding here only a week ago. It was unbelievable! The grounds are beyond beautiful. The cottages are a home away from home. The lake is literally on the door step and we made the most of it. The dining room/barn is so beautiful it doesn't really need decorating. The staff are incredibly friendly special mentions to Val & Callum. Huge thank you to all involved

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

If you have your heart on a specific date, book it as early as possible!

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

A "Wine Box Ceremony"! Our couple wrote letters to each other explaining the reasons they loved each other and why they wanted to marry each other, and sealed them in a box with a fancy bottle of champagne. The box is to be opened if they ever have marital hardships, so they can read the letters and drink the champagne together, and remember all of the reasons they fell in love.
