About Armathwaite Hall Hotel and Spa

Bassenthwaite Lake, Keswick
Cumbria, CA12 4RE

Located in the beautiful Lake District, the Armathwaite Hall Hotel and Spa is a truly stunning wedding location. The area of outstanding natural beauty provides an unrivalled setting for your big day. With the stunning backdrop of the Skiddaw Mountain and overlooking Bassenthwaite Lake, your important wedding photographs will be spectacular.

This breath-taking scenery is utterly gorgeous in every season. From the rich reds and golds of autumn, the snow tipped mountains of winter and the vibrant colours in the spring and summer sunshine, the setting could not be more perfect. Against this background stands the majestic 17th century former stately home, the perfect spot for your wedding celebrations.

From your initial enquiry through to the big day itself, our fantastic, dedicated wedding co-ordinators will be on hand to help throughout. They will offer advice and guidance on everything from cakes to cars.

The hotel boasts four individually-designed, fully-licensed function rooms for your civil ceremony. Each function suite offers you flexibility in your guest list, accommodating between 4 and 150 for both small, intimate events and larger celebrations.

Armathwaite Hall was the first venue in Cumbria to carry out civil ceremonies and has since been the proud host of hundreds of unions.

For your overnight guests, we have 44 stunning bedrooms, Studio Suites, and Spa rooms. Some rooms have beautiful lake views or individual gardens.

By Mr and Mrs Fortis, on 10 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 03 Feb 2018

We were lucky enough to get married here on February 3rd 2018. It was a late booking, with only 7 weeks planning made all the easier with the teams invaluable help & fantastic organisation. The whole day ran like clockwork, the staff were fabulous. nothing was too much trouble. The wedding breakfast was beautiful & the pork sandwiches at night much appreciated to fuel the dancing. It’s a truly stunning venue made all the better by the very attentive staff who took care of everything for us, ensuring our day was perfect & stress free.

We had the most amazing day at Armathwaite Hall
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Kehoe, on 08 Dec 2016Date of Wedding - 29 Oct 2016

Just wanted to say a very big thank you for all your help, support, guidance and love in helping organise and plan our wedding. You have been so kind and helpful during the planning stages, particularly with us living outside of the area. On the day you were brilliant and made me feel at ease knowing that everything was sorted and perfect. We had the most amazing day at Armathwaite, it was just magical and we wish that we could do it all again as it went so quick!! We knew from the second that we saw Armathwaite that this was the 'one' and with your help and planning we had the most perfect wedding day. All the staff at Armathwaite made everything perfect and all out guests were amazed. The food was delicious and all the staff from cleaners, reception staff, bar staff and porters were all friendly and accommodated any request that we needed. We were made to feel like royalty. Its fair to say that both of us will be coming back to stay with you very soon, we did not get chance to take full advantage of the spa but I am sure we will be doing that very soon and we will be returning every anniversary (I have already agreed this with Sean)!! We are both very sad that its all over but we wish to thank you for everything you have done and hope to see you again soon. You really played a very big part in making our day run so smoothly and so perfectly, and we will never forget your kindness and support. Mr & Mrs Kehoe

Everything ran so smoothly
Venue Service

By Natalie and Grant Smith, on 23 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 11 Sep 2016

We really cant thank Sarah, Gemma and all the Armathwaite team enough, for all their help on our big day. It felt like as though everything ran so smoothly, anything we needed or wanted had either, already been dealt with, or was being seen to. There wasn't anything that was too much to ask.

Thank you all for making our wedding so special
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Houghton, on 23 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 09 Sep 2016

Dear Armathwaite Hall team, Neil and I would like to thank you all for making our wedding on Friday so special . We stayed Thursday and Friday nights and everyone from the Reception staff, to housekeeping, to the waiting staff at the dinner the night before, the wedding breakfast, the evening function and the breakfast the next morning were all wonderful- friendly and professional. Thanks to Sarah and Gemma for guiding us through the wedding planning, there was a lot to organise but we got there! The gift of the champagne and glasses was a lovely touch too, we were thrilled. We hope to return to the hotel soon.

By Mr and Mrs Hockworth, on 23 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 19 Dec 2015

Just a quick note to tell you what an excellent hotel and fantastic staff you have. All the staff worked hard, pleasant, well mannered and made our weekend a weekend to remember . The food was fantastic both on the wedding day and the night before in the Lakeview restaurant. And a special mention to Sarah the wedding planner. She was brilliant and very professional.

All the staff were friendly
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Robinson, on 01 Nov 2014

Hi Cath, We are just writing to say a big thanks for everything Armathwaite have done to make our wedding special. All the staff were friendly and helped us to get organised (especially Sarah and the hair and makeup team who were brilliant!) and we had a really fantastic time at the meal on the Friday, the whole wedding day and the Sunday morning. All the guests also said how lovely a venue it is and how wonderful all the staff had been. Most importantly, thank you very much for being our support throughout the whole process. You have been a huge help to us, making sure the day was how we wanted and answering all our questions. We have both really appreciated it! Thanks again! Katherine and Paul (Mr and Mrs Robinson!) 25/10/14
