We saw Broadoaks on an online search and went to visit and meet with one of the wedding planners. We decided there and then that we were definitely getting married there.
The hotel itself is truly special. Beautiful building and grounds, and then each bedroom has its own character, but they’re all stunning in their own way.
The staff are amazing. So accommodating and helpful. You really get the impression that it’s more than just a job for them - they do everything they can to make sure your stay/wedding is exactly as you want it. No detail was too big or too small for them.
The food for our wedding breakfast was out of this world. We’ve been married a week now and our guests keep mentioning the food to us! Our guests also keep saying they’ll be back. And so will we.
I’m so happy we chose Broadoaks for our special day because it was perfect. And the staff even got us a beautiful wedding gift that we will treasure.
I can’t recommend this place enough for whatever stay/event you’re considering. It won’t let you down.
The food was to die for
By John Billington, on 15 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 31 Dec 2017
We were lucky to be part of a recent wedding held at Broadoaks just before Christmas. Our son Jeff Billington and Beth Helsby were married there on 22nd December. We had 3 rooms for 2 nights booked and I am writing to say how much we thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
The place itself is very nice and all the rooms that we saw were tremendous. The housekeeping was spot on and we couldn’t have asked for anything more. We have to thank ALL the staff who were extremely helpful , polite , friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them.
The food was “ to die for “ , so tasty and the quality of it all was great. My sister is a coeliac and has to eat gluten free. She was so happy at the way that she was taken care of with her meals. She wasn’t expecting the evening buffet to have anything for her but was pleasantly surprised when someone searched her out and produced her own little buffet. She cannot sing your praises enough as so can’t we.
The whole experience of the 3 day’s that we were there was so relaxing and pleasant and we hope that in the future we will visit again and maybe for afternoon tea.
We will be happily recommending yourselves to anyone that we can.
Thank you so much.
Sue and John Billington.
The Best Wedding Venue
By Manchester Chic, on 31 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 22 Dec 2017
Well upon falling upon Broadoaks after my Aunty shared a link on Facebook I booked an impromptu meeting with a wedding coordinator while my husband to be was still working away. On his return I informed him we were to take a trip to the Lakes to look at a venue. Him being of the obliging type agreed. So off we went on our little day trip, as we drove onto the driveway we were blown away. We look at eachother with big grins on our faces. After our meeting with the lovely Jo we came away thinking this was too good to be true. We were given available dates for 2018 and went away to ponder... Well it was all too long of a wait so decided to book it for 28 December 2017 (our 2 year anniversary), it just seem right. We were guided all the way by Jo who is brilliant and then we were assigned Vicki to be our co-ordinator on the day.
Well quite simply the wedding was more than we had dreamed of. All the staff were amazing. Our guests had nothing but high praise for everyone. We had the most amazing day and night and can honestly say it was the best day of our lives.
The wonderful Vicki and then Dan the Events manager were just brilliant. Taking care of everything.
I really can't praise the whole team enough.
Beautiful Venue, stunning views, brilliant staff.
We cant express our thanks and gratitude enough
By Jon & Steph, on 15 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 08 Dec 2017
We can't express our thanks and gratitude enough for making the day absolutely perfect. The hotel, setting and weather (although very cold!) was stunning. Everything ran so smoothly, you & the team made everything very easy and helped us out on the day with great advice especially when I'd lost the power of being able to count out the seating for the reserved guests at the front of the ceremony! My brain was like mush at that point...
The rooms were fantastic and our only regret about the Boudoir is the lack of time we spent in there! We hope to visit for our 1st years anniversary so we can enjoy one of the great rooms for a bit longer.
Everyone has told us what a beautiful wedding it was and how much of a good time they had, you've surpassed our expectations and again, can't thank you all enough for your hard work and experience in making the day what it was. Dan also did a great job in looking after us all for the evening reception and acted as a great MC.
At checkout, our gift of a framed picture of Broadoaks with our name and wedding date was totally unexpected and such a nice touch and really we couldn't believe how thoughtful that was.
Thank you and hope to see you soon.
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!
