When your guests receive your wedding invitation and they realise they are going to spend a whole weekend (or more) in the beautiful Lake District they will be delighted. In fact, many guests choose to stay for long weekends or even a week when they realise the amazing place they will be travelling to, to help you celebrate your marriage.

The Lake District is a popular choice for couples choosing to get married, and for their guests – here are a few reasons why:

Choice of Accommodation

Broadoaks has 16 rooms in the main house that can accommodate up to 32 adults with four additional rooms if required within the grounds.  Our evening reception can accommodate up to 130 guests. One of the reasons Broadoaks is such a great choice for your Lake District wedding is that while it is secluded it is also within a short taxi ride of the main Windermere area which is full of a range of accommodation for your guests. Guests can choose from self-catering cottages, bed and breakfasts, luxury hotels, lakeside lodges and even campsites. With such a range of accommodation on offer and in such close proximity to Broadoaks your guests will easily find something that suits both their taste and budget so they can celebrate with you on your special day.

Wedding guests love to look their best for your wedding day and one of the benefits of getting married near Windermere Town is that there are a huge range of services that your guest can use. From dog sitting services to luxury spa’s, hairdressers & make-up artists to dry cleaners, whatever your guests need, they will be able to find it close to Broadoaks.

A Beautiful Weekend Away

We are biased as we live and work here, but we think the Lake District is the most beautiful place anywhere. Long lakes, rolling hills, green forests and pretty slate villages makes The Lake District simply stunning and your guests will appreciate a weekend away in this National Park and World Heritage Site.

Lake District Activities

When you are getting married, you are busy – very busy. This is not true of your guests, they have a lot of time to enjoy the place that you have chosen to get married in and with so many activities on offer in Lakeland, here are a few they may like to try;

Walking – A bracing walk in the Cumbrian fells is an obvious choice for those visiting the Lake District to attend weddings. Whether that is a relatively flat walk around a lake path or bagging another Wainwright with the fells on the doorstep your guests will be tempted.

Discover Peter Rabbit – Beatrix Potter is very popular in The Lake District and if your guests have a morning to spare, they can discover some of the Beatrix Potter related locations close by.

Lake District Tours – Lakeland is stunning and if you are short on time and want to see as much as possible then a bus tour is one of the best ways to pack in the main sights with a knowledgeable guide to help you.

Water Sports – If your guest are staying in Windermere then they may find it too tempting not to have a lake experience. From stand up paddle boarding to sailing to hiring a row boat and getting out there, there really is nothing like the view from the centre of the lake.
