Last update: March 2024

Silverholme Manor is a wedding venue located on the 5,000 acre privately owned Graythwaite estate in Cumbria. A stunning Georgian manor house that is set amid rolling fields directly on the unspoilt shores of the most famous of the Lake District's lakes - Lake Windermere. This region of outstanding national beauty has inspired a generation of romantic poets and is an unforgettable place in which to tie the knot. It is ideal for nature lovers, who dream of getting hitched away from hustle and bustle of big city life.

Facilities and Capacity

There are several indoor and outdoor event spaces for you to choose from at Silverholme Manor. Outdoor ceremonies can unfold on the panoramic patio overlooking the lake, with only the house, the fields, the trees and the lake itself to frame your photographs. During the cooler months or on wetter days, equally romantic ceremonies can take part in the Coach House or Drawing Room / Dining Room of the manor house itself. Receptions can follow either under a large marquee / tipi in the venue's grounds or inside the main rooms. Regardless of your choice, all the settings have lots of space for seats, a dance floor, and a live DJ or band should you desire.

Wedding packages are for 3 days - giving you ample time to relax with your guests at Silverholme Manor and make your wedding ceremony only one part of an intimate, relaxing and memorable holiday with your nearest and dearest.

Accommodation

The house itself offers eight individually-styled en-suite bedrooms and an original coachman's cottage in the gardens that sleeps 2, making a total of 18 guests. In addition, there are 36 self-catering cottages across the estate, the majority only a short distance from Silverholme Manor - so that up to 250 guests may all stay on the estate.

Services Offered

The events staff at this venue will work closely with you to make sure that you have the wedding of your dreams. They have a list of recommended caterers and marquee / tipi providers, who all have a great deal of experience in providing outstanding weddings in this dream like location. In addition, there are multiple activities (off road driving, archery, axe throwing and all sorts of water events on the Lake!) that can be organised on the estate to entertain your guests and ensure that everyone has the most joyous time in the beautiful and breath-taking Lake District.

BEST venue for a wedding!

My husband and I had a week-long wedding at Silverholme Manor with 50 guests and it was honestly the best experience we've ever had. Not only is the manor beautiful, but the grounds and views over Lake Windermere are stunning! Our guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been to - and that was in no small part to Silverholme.

We loved the homey-feel of the venue. They have preserved a lot of it's vintage charm while providing cozy and comfortable rooms and maintaining high-end facilities in the kitchen and bathrooms. Our guests spent time hanging by the fire in the great room, playing lawn games on the front lawn and exploring the grounds. We offered a bus tour/ golf trip as well which was incredibly convenient from their location and went off without a hitch.

We rented Low Graythwaite Hall, Hullet Hall and Grubbings as well for guests. Our wedding ceremony was in the adjoining coach house, which was perfect for 50 guests.

Vanessa helped us to book everything, and coordinated with other Graythwaite Estate managers to extend out to Grubbings Cottage. She offered us viewings, was prompt with questions and was quick to respond to any issue we had (e.g. we requested cots last minute for visiting families and she got them set up within the hour).

If you have a larger party, they set up a marquee on the grounds which I imagine would be wonderful as well with the lake views. We used the Coach House for more than just the ceremony - we had a pub-night there the night before and it held our dinner and reception beautifully.

If anyone has any questions about it or would like more info I'm happy to provide a recommendation!

Unforgettable Silverholme!

I would highly recommend Silverholme Manor! We had the most fantastic wedding weekend. The venue is stunning, the rooms and grounds are amazing and it's a wonderful place to host a wedding/celebration. Vanessa is so helpful, particularly with recommendations and helping you to achieve your perfect day. For us, it was to have all of our international family in one place where we could be in each other's company for the whole weekend. We loved all of the options that Silverholme provides such as the coach house, we hosted our r welcome party their on Friday, we had a marquee wedding on Saturday, and a beautiful bbq in the sun on Sunday. It was truly magical! I wish we could do it all over again!

Fantastic venue, even better staff!

Vanessa, the office manager at Silverholme, is an absolute hero! For our wedding at the Silverholme Manor, the tent provider (All About ME Marquees) I chose (going against Vanessa's recommendation) neglected to do a site visit until 72 hours before the wedding. This resulted in very serious and major last-minute issues. Instead of throwing their hands in the air and complaining, Vanessa and her team tried to come up with alternative solutions, all of which she communicated to us in a succinct and timely fashion. What could have been an absolute nightmare turned out to be a beautiful event. This is because Vanessa is a true professional who went beyond her roles and responsibilities to make sure everything ran smoothly. She is also the loveliest human being, always with a positive attitude and very invested in everyone having a great time. From the bottom of my heart, thank you very much! PS. The location is heavenly and the venue is gorgeous :)

What a place for a special occasion!

Each client of mine that takes on Silverholme for their big celebration enjoys not just the epic view but the beautiful property. Such care has been given to the place, with beautiful styling and gorgeous space. You can really make it your own and with the help of the fun and friendly team. Thanks for having me guys and hope to be back soon!

Brilliant Wedding Venue!

We have a tremendous wedding at Silverholme! We stayed for a full week with our closest friends walking in the local hills, flinging ourselves into the lake, having opulent meals in the enormous dining room and enjoying the beautiful rooms and grounds.

The venue was completely perfect for a wedding, with ample space of our marquee, a beautiful coach house for the ceremony, and plenty of space in the house to hosts guests. The lawn is beautiful for the guests to enjoy drinks on and they were able to dash for cover when the occasional shower arrived. There was also ample room for a kitchen to be set up next to marquee.

We had a magical day in a beautiful location where the staff at Silverholme were extremely helpful in getting everything set up. I couldn't recommend it more!

Absolutely incredible, we loved every second

We were blown away by Silverholme manor. They have thought of absolutely everything, they have left nothing to chance. The manager Vanessa was fast to respond, accommodating and always incredibly helpful. The venue itself is breathtaking and it was the perfect setting for our wedding. All of our guests commented that it was the best venue they had been to. We would recommend Silverholme Manor to anyone and we will definitely be back for anniversaries and important birthdays.

Absolutely Amazing

We cannot recommend Silverholme Manor and the surrounding properties enough, they were absolutely perfect and in one of the most amazing settings in the UK. The beauty of the Manor with modern day comforts were absolutely perfect for our week long celebrations. I absolutely loved being lady of the manor albeit for 5 days and Eric certainly settled in well to being Lord!! The stunning views, along with the peace and tranquility of the location, the beautiful wildlife all made our wedding truly special and memorable for us and all of our guests. All of whom could not praise it enough, from the comfort of the big beautiful rooms with amazing views and beds that they slept well in, to the little luxuries such as the soaps and handwashes (they truly smelt amazing) , bathrobes (the kids wanted to take them home!) and all the kitchen facilities and comfortable lounges that made it a truly special week.



Vanessa you were amazing, our guests didn't get to see the hardwork you put into things for us, that is testament to how seamless everything was. Thank you for greeting us on arrival, for the welcome hampers and wines (lovely touch, very personal) to helping on the wedding day, helping me with my dress, and getting me unstuck! We really appreciated everything you did, the changes you have made to the property have only enhanced it and the Graythwaite Estate is truly lucky to have you.



Thanks again, and we will be back one day, not sure when, but Silverholme Manor and Graythwaite Estate will always have a special place in our heart.

Glorious venue and wonderful team

Silverholme is the most magnificent place to get married in the Lake District. You will be able to see for your self the interior and exterior beauty of the place. But that is not all that makes it special.

1. There are very few, if any, places in the Lake District where you can combine a lakeside setting with enough accommodation for lots of guests. The Graythwaite estate of which Silverholme is a part has enough cottages within walking distance not to make travel between accommodation and venue ok.
2. The team were fantastic throughout and were incredibly helpful in making our vision for the event come true, whether it was a mountain top paella or turning the coach house in to a night club.
3.There is a great network of suppliers who are adept at navigating the idiosyncrasies of the location. We used Karen Rhodes, Little Barn Bar, Smoke and Steel and Original Marquees and would recommend them all.
4. You can bring your own booze!

Finally a huge shout out to Vanessa who was instrumental in pulling things together.
