Storrs Hall is a beautiful & unique wedding venue – arguably one of the most spectacular in the Lake District, if not the whole of the UK.
It’s rarer than you’d think to find such a strikingly elegant building, with private and peaceful lake frontage in the Lake District. Built in 1797 for a Yorkshire gentleman as an alternative to holidaying in the Swiss lakes, he chose the best location on Lake Windermere. The Grade II* listed building is wrapped in 17 acres of grounds, enjoying miles of views both north and south.
His choice of location was equally appreciated by Tatler, who rated it one of the 101 Best Hotels in the World, 2022. The Sunday Times listed it as one of the Top 80 British Hotels, 2021. It’s still working its magic. With three grand period rooms licenced for your ceremony, and three outside spaces, you’re spoilt for choice – whether it’s just the two of you, or with all your friends and family taking Exclusive Use.
Newly licenced in 2022, the Boathouse Terrace is a unique ‘Just for Two’ venue, where the unusually large terrace with hot tub, seating area, firepit and lily pond border the lake; with spectacular views north up Windermere to the central mountains. The luxuries of the Boathouse interiors match the location, for your wedding night.
Requiring a key code for its private grounds, and private parking, it really is something special and very exclusive.
The Garden Pavilion, wrought in lacy ornate ironwork is romantically pretty, and with the lake behind is a photogenic location for your vows. It’s also a top spot for sunset proposals. Newly licenced for ceremonies in 2022 is the South Lawn, between the hotel terraces and the lakeshore, woodland to either side ensures privacy. It’s overlooked by the restaurant, conservatory, and drawing-room. Exclusive Use maximum number of guests is 60-80, speak to us about the possibility of a marquee on the south lawn.
Storrs has a very characterful bar – The Tower Bar, reclaimed from Blackpool Tower itself, a piece of high Victoriana in rich wood and stained glass, adds another dimension to your celebrations. Menus are devised totally to your tastes by our Head Chef and Team – talk to us about your dreams. It’s your big day.
Storrs Hall wedding venue is easily accessible, being 30 minutes from junction 36 of the M6, two miles south of Bowness on Windermere – home to Windermere Lake Cruises who will provide a private lake tour directly from our jetty, for the entertainment of your guests. We have extensive private parking, eight VendElectric EV charging points and a helicopter landing is available on the south lawn.
