Storrs Hall is one of the most stunning wedding venues in the Lake District. The beautifully restored Georgian Mansion, set in its own magnificent gardens with exceptional views across Lake Windermere, provides an extraordinary backdrop for a truly idyllic wedding.

Licensed for civil ceremonies, Storrs Hall can host your entire wedding day. The Georgian Drawing Room, with its natural light and breathtaking views, is an elegant setting for your ceremony. In the warmer months, you also have the option of holding your wedding ceremony in the beautiful Garden Pavilion.

Our three elegant dining rooms afford magnificent views down the lawns to the water's edge and the Lake District fells. The Lake Edge Restaurant has a capacity of up to 80 guests, The Counties Meet holds 40, while our smaller John Bolton dining room offers a more intimate atmosphere, seating up to 22 guests. Therefore, you have fantastic flexibility when it comes to hosting your wedding at Storrs Hall.

The drawing room, or our wonderful reception hall with its rotunda and balcony can provide elegant, yet informal settings for drinks and canapés. Alternatively, you can host them in the stunning grounds and allow guests to explore as you capture some romantic wedding photographs.

Following the evening’s festivities, you can spend the first night of married life in our sumptuous bridal suite. With spectacular views of Windermere and fabulous décor, the suite is fittingly romantic for such an important occasion. Your guests are able to retire to one of our 30 en-suite bedrooms, each individually designed with luxury fittings.

sincerely awesome
Venue Service

By Mr Hirst, on 15 Feb 2015

‘I thought it appropriate to formally write to you regarding my 50th birthday party at Storrs hall this weekend. I booked my party way back in Feb this year. From the moment I met you, Sarah, you made the planning so easy ……your efficiency and attentiveness has been superb and consistent throughout . Then here comes the most important thing …my party this weekend was absolutely amazing …and I mean sincerely awesome. From the girls on reception who welcomed all my guests and helped with luggage and hosted everybody to their rooms [ Toni , Ellen …cannot remember all the names] to the staff who served my guests in the ballroom and of course “Fred” who ran the show with a big smile on his face throughout the night . He is a special man. The food that chef prepared was exceptional with everybody commenting on how delicious all the courses were …so please thank him and the team. In summary Storrs hall delivered a world class event /party with levels of customer service that are up there with best I have ever experienced [ anywhere in the world ] I will be back soon!

I got married at Storrs Hall March 2006. The hotel is stunning and has a real romantic feel about it. Married in the rotunda with some guests watching the ceremony from the circular balcony above, this was something different and made a good talking point!Food and drinks were divine, had bacon sandwiches for supper!As ceremony and reception under one roof, this made for a relaxed atmosphere. The amazing venue enhanced a perfect day. (scenery for photos is beautiful!)

I got married here on the 27th April and it is the most amazing place I have been to. The service from all the staff is outstanding. The location could not be better and the food and wine fantastic. The only place to get married in the Lake District. We will definately be visiting again!

Fantastic staff and an amazing location.

I am getting married at Storrs Hall in April 2003. After having visited many hotels in the Lake District,it was refreshing to visit Storrs Hall. The staff are so friendly and cannot do enough to assist and make you feel welcome and special. The location is amazing and feels like the perfect place. Definately worth looking at if you want to get married in the Lake District.

A beautiful building in a fantastic location

We stumbled across this hotel by chance on our way south to Newby Bridge (you can only see the sign from this direction) and what a wonderful find! The Georgian building is a lovely warm yellow colour steeped in history and is located next to the lake with it's own jetty if you wish to hire a cruise boat. The staff were very polite and helpful and gave as much information as possible in a professional, friendly manner. There are 2 locations for the wedding ceremony - the smallest with a circular balcony for guests to watch from! The decor was the best I have seen from all the hotels I viewed around Windermere - yet not the most expensive. There are also cottages for hire in the grounds if there are not enough rooms for your guests. The only downside is that the reception only caters for a max. of 65 (you can hire a marquee for larger groups) and as with most of the hotels in the vicinity you have to hire the whole hotel for 2 nights if you have your reception there. You could get round this and do as I am thinking and hire a boat for your reception and just have the civil ceremony there. Also, children under 12 are not allowed. By far the best hotel I have seen. Could be the one for me!
