Our perfectly magical New Years Eve wedding
By Leann P, on 17 Jan 2017Date of Wedding - 31 Dec 2016
My husband and I were incredibly lucky enough to have our New Years Eve wedding at Broadoaks and booked this hotel exclusively for the weekend for our family and friends. Having stayed there a couple of times previously, we knew what to expect regarding the service and quality of this wonderful gem of a hotel; a beautiful bespoke country hotel in the most wonderful location. There would be a warm and personable welcome, immaculate and beautifully unique designer bedrooms, consistent and incredible food from an amazing chef and all delivered by the most attentive staff ... The Broadoaks team always go above and beyond and cannot do enough to meet every guest's needs or wishes - Broadoaks makes you feel, as though you are leaving friends - You drive away already planning your return visit.
However... Knowing this already about Broadoaks, we are currently speechless. We have just had the most perfect and magical wedding celebration with our family and friends, that surpassed every expectation we held...and more besides. Our guests were completely blown away and the compliments have been amazing! We cannot recommend Broadoaks highly enough. Massive thank you to all the team but in particular to Darren, Dan and Vicki - who's dedication, skill and hard work ensured pure perfection. A true little piece of heaven in the Lakes. Thank you!
Wedding Day at Broadoaks Just perfect!!
By Kim and Neil, on 17 Jan 2017Date of Wedding - 14 Sep 2016
We were lucky enough to have our wedding day at Broadoaks in mid September, it was just beyond perfect!
From the very start of picking the venue we were provided with a personal wedding planner (little Jo) who helped throughout the full year of planning, she was exceptionally professional and helped with every last detail making our day perfect, emails were responded to instantly and she made the whole planning experience really enjoyable and stress free.
We picked the package where we had the house exclusively for 2 days, again upon arrival all the guest were made to feel so welcome and we couldn't praise the staff enough for being attentive to everyone's needs.
On the big day we were lucky enough to hold our ceremony outside on the beautiful grounds which again made the day extra special. The ceremony was followed by clay pigeon shooting in the grounds which went down so well with our guests.
We held the meal in the orangery and were able to decorate this to exactly how we wanted. The food was absolutely beautifully and we couldn't fault any of it. Again the room was quickly turned around for the night guests to arrive and we ended the evening with sky lanterns which was a perfect end!
Can't thank Broadoaks enough for making our wedding day beyond perfect - we will definately be back for birhtdyas, anniversarys and any other excuse we can make!

Amazing setting for a perfect wedding reception
By Holidaymaker1982, on 17 Jan 2017Date of Wedding - 07 Apr 2016
We got married in April this year and had our wedding reception at Broadoaks and can not praise Little Jo and the team enough. They helped make the day amazing, and nothing was too much for them. From the first moment we met with Jo she organised everything, and the hotel staff throughout the day made sure everything was as we had planned.
Darren, the restaurant manager, was on hand throughout the entire day and evening to make sure everything ran smoothly and we all had an unbelievably brilliant day.
The food was fantastic, the whole reception perfect and the rooms so comfortable and luxurious we didn't want to leave. Thank you all so much for making our day so special - we will be back to visit with little baby Rigg on our anniversary!

We just wanted to write and say a huge thank you to you all for making Broadoaks a beautiful place for our wedding day.
The reception and our entire stay was perfect from start to finish and you all made such an effort to ensure all ran smoothly.
Many guests commented on how beautiful Broadoaks was and the service they received was perfect.
We had the happiest day and would not change a thing. We plan to come back to Broadoaks and would recommend it to anyone.
A special thank you to Zoe who dealt with all the 'panicy' emails towards the end, you were so reassuring and quick to respond - just brilliant.
All left to say is thank you again for your thoughtfulness and hard work - you made our day very special.

Clare and I wanted to find a venue in the Lake District to get married, we spent many hours searching the internet for a venue that could meet all our criteria namely:-
Personal and friendly service from all staff.
Beautiful venue and rooms.
Top class food and wine.
A flexible approach to ensure that our say was as we wanted it.
A feeling that we were guests and not just customers!!
After a number of lesser venues were contacted and some viewed we stumbled on Broadoaks and from the first phone call we knew that we had found the
The venue is owned by Tracey Robinson with Joe taking the lead as manager doing most of the front of shop work. I must say that he is just always
on duty and is one of the most amazing people you could wish to meet. He and his team made our three days so special, nothing was ever a problem and all requests were met with a warm helpful and attentive response.
Joe and his team ensured that every part of our stay from our arrival on Friday, our wedding on Saturday and our leaving on Sunday was attended to, to the smallest detail.
Joe worked with our witnesses and wedding organisers Hazel and Barry Southern, many thanks for everything They helped arrange flowers, hairdressers, allowed personal touches on table settings, rooms etc, etc.
To name and thank the staff:-
Dave yeah man
And of course Molly
Even photography became part of the Broadoaks team's role for our three days stay!!
As part of my work I travel to many hotels and eat in numerous restaurants around the UK, some of these are big chains and some small individual businesses. Broadoaks leaves them all in its wake.
If you want to have a day as special as ours please give Joe a call and mention Clare and Robb Allen.
Again many, many, many, thanks for making our wedding really the best day of our lives.

Having just returned from a lovely weekend at Broadoaks celebrating the marriage of my cousin David to Joanne, I felt I had to write and thank you for looking after us all so well, especially my elderly mother Evelyn. I would particularly like to thank Joe for his assistance in making things as easy as possible for mum and making her feel very special.
The Broadoaks experience made a very happy occasion even more enjoyable and memorable for all the right reasons.
Many thanks to all staff and management
