Knipe Hall is a 17th-Century Grade II listed Farm House with plenty of country character. Close to both the town of Penrith and beautiful Ullswater and with south-west facing gardens looking out across the Lowther Valley, it's certainly in a pretty perfect position. Blessed with beamy low ceilings, traditional stone built walls and plenty of period furniture
We have hosted weddings at Knipe Hall for 10 years and our approach to weddings receptions is professional yet relaxed, as primarily we own a unique property that we have adapted with flexibility in mind. Bring your own ideas and we’ll try our utmost to accommodate them. Some of the services we provide ‘in house’ such as catering and the bar service leaving you free to plan the entertainment, decorations and the timings for your day.
Two rooms at Knipe Hall are licensed to hold a Civil Ceremony. The country-style sitting room inside the house with wood burning stove and grand fire place (seating up to 20 guests) or The Old Dairy (seating up to 110 guests) which is a superb room for the purpose and can be decorated to your taste. In-house staff will setup The Dairy after your ceremony to use again for your wedding breakfast.
Upstairs, we have The Party Barn with the fully-equipped bar and dance floor to take the party into the night. In total, we can accommodate up to 150 guests for your evening event.
Situated inside the National Park only 7 miles from J39 M6 within the Lowther Valley, the Farm House accommodates up to 12 people and benefits from of a hot tub, two fireplaces and WiFi. The unique function side of Knipe Hall is attached to the house and consists of The Party Barn, anterooms and The Old Dairy.
Additional bed & breakfast accommodation for your guests can be found locally at our two other properties, The Mardale @ Bampton & The Greyhound @ Shap, both high quality
Inns, sleeping up to 56 guests in total. We can provide transport between these properties and Knipe Hall at no extra cost when both properties are "block-booked" together.
