Located in Bakewell, in the heart of Derbyshire's rolling hills, lies Healthy Lea, a stunning, chic countryside wedding venue. Unwind amongst the picturesque views of Chatsworth Park and in the company of the woolly sheep dotted around the property. An idyllic location far from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it is the perfect place to host the intimate wedding of your dreams in blissful privacy, immersing yourself in a romantic celebration.

Facilities and Capacity

Begin your day in one of the quintessential English stone cottages, preparing to walk down the aisle and begin a new chapter in your life. Healthy Lea has a license to host civil ceremonies onsite and can accommodate 20-150 guests. Exchange vows amongst flora and fauna, announcing your love in front of your nearest and dearest. Your wedding reception will be held in one of two structures of your choice, so whether you prefer a traditional marquee or if you are looking for something a little different, you can also choose from a large Tipi. You will have exclusive use of the property for 3 days, and you are free to make full use of the Summerhouse and gardens for your ceremony and photo opportunities.

Services Offered

When you book with Healthy Lea, you will be put in contact with Sally, the onsite wedding coordinator, who will be on hand to ensure a seamless celebration. Sally will be in contact with you throughout the planning process, and she will also act as an on-the-day coordinator, making sure all of your vendors arrive and set up in time for the festivities. There are also a number of accommodation options, including four cottages and 5 renovated sheep barns for your guests to stay in for the duration of the wedding celebration.

Completely gorgeous place and people!

Looking back we could not imagine getting married anywhere else. Being able to have all our closest family and friends around us the whole weekend was amazing and although they couldn鈥檛 change the weather for us, Sally & James couldn鈥檛 do enough for us and made us feel so special. The icing on top is that we can go back and stay in a beautiful shepherds hut for anniversary to come.
