Cressbrook Hall is a truly magical and unique venue; a much-loved home to its owners, and a special place in the memories of all those who hold their special days with us. Our venue lies in a truly stunning location in the Derbyshire Peak District, and is just five minutes from picturesque Bakewell – perfect for memorable wedding days.
Cressbrook really is no ordinary wedding venue. Set among 23 acres of gorgeous woodland in Derbyshire's Wye Valley, and close to Ashford in the Water, Great Longstone and the famous Peak District town of Bakewell, Cressbrook occupies a wonderful location - a hidden valley which allows our wedding couples to feel that they have the place to themselves and their guests, with no sense of being on a 'wedding conveyor belt'. We are able to provide you with a spectacular and secluded setting, with accommodation on site for 40 of your guests, where you can celebrate your wedding in privacy and comfort, and remember it forever in photographs with the most incredible backdrop you could imagine.
Emily and Harriet will work alongside you, your partner, and your families, to ensure that every wedding that takes place at our venue is specifically tailored to your individual requirements, with impeccable attention to detail. There is no corporate rule book here. Just a friendly and experienced team with all the expertise you need, and a pot of tea at the ready when you need to chat things through.
Because everything can be taken care of at Cressbrook Hall, from the ceremony itself right down to the accommodation for your guests, you can choose to be as involved as you prefer, or leave things to our expert team in confidence. Or we can work closely with your wedding planner to give you the wedding of your dreams.
Leave behind the stresses of modern life and surround yourself in the warmth and calmness of Cressbrook Hall. And please do come to visit us - most people say that once they have seen the Hall and its location, they agree that there is nowhere else quite like it!
We look forward to discussing your wedding ideas with you.
Best wishes, Emily & Harriet

Beautiful Location, Beautiful Service
Cressbrook was the ideal location. As soon as I saw it, we had to book it: the hills, the timeless hall, the cottages and dog-friendly venue, all of it was a must for me. Throughout the process we were in contact with Emily who was wonderful in helping us plan - especially when it came to COVID and the worries we had about rescheduling.Sent on 12/01/2021
In the end, we postponed our bigger ceremony and were able to book a small ceremony room for the date we had originally booked. The decor was gorgeous, and Emily was an amazing help throughout the day and great with our photographer.
I couldn't have imagined having a wedding in any other place.

We got married at cressbrook hall in 2013, it was the most perfect day and I couldn't recommend this beautiful venue and the wonderful owners highly enough. The views are breathtaking, we could get married outside (which was super important to me) and it feels like a million miles from the outside world! They were so flexible and let us create the perfect quirky wedding for us, we had afternoon tea and a gorgeous BBQ evening meal, and let us put up origami butterflies, have led zeppelin for our first dance, jam jars of wildflowers lining the aisle and a rock band in the orangery! We all stayed in the lovely cottages and it was the best wedding ever (seriously, it was perfect). Cressbrook hall is stunning, we felt like it was ours for a day and the team were wonderful.Sent on 11/10/2017
