Stunning Wedding Venue in the beautiful village of Cartmel
We attended a friends wedding at Cartmel Grammar 2 years ago and I have been raving about it ever since! The venue itself is absolutely stunning, with a terrace overlooking the beautiful gardens, where we had drinks in the sunshine before dinner. We stayed in one of the rooms overnight, which was modern and extremely clean. Breakfast was a delight and the staff were so friendly. I would definitely recommend the venue to friends and family, particularly if it means I get to have another visit!Sent on 01/02/2021

We got married here in 2018 and it was a great venue. We were married at Cartmel Priory and we were an easy five minute stroll away. The rooms we stayed in were stylish, modern and very clean. It was a sunny day and the terrace was lovely, overlooking the gardens and a great view over the racecourse and fells. There was also loads of space for parking, which really helped a lot of our guests. The staff were all friendly and helpful and everything went perfectly on the day. I would happily recommend Cartmel Old Grammar.Sent on 03/06/2020
