The Coppermines Mountain Venue is a wedding venue like no other in the English Lake District, Cumbria. This unique, charmingly rustic and exclusive property is set amongst bubbling becks, thundering waterfalls and rugged crags in the heart of the majestic Coppermines Valley. It offers magnificent views of the Old Man of Coniston above and Coniston Water in the valley below. This incredible venue was a finalist in the Wedding Venue of the Year category at the 2022 Cumbria Tourism Awards and is situated within a Site of Special Scientific Interest. It's also listed as a Scheduled Ancient Monument and sits at the heart of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Our site is licensed for both civil ceremonies and civil partnerships and has been holding weddings since 2004.

Facilities and Capacity

From arrival, the Coppermines Mountain Venue is exclusively yours and you have the freedom to decide how you wish your celebration to unfold. The Copper Wedding Barn, the property's rustic ceremony space, can comfortably seat up to 120 guests. On-site accommodation, with private hot tubs, is available for up to 22 people with further accommodation available nearby. If you'd like to make the most of the stunning mountain views, you're invited to set up a marquee or tipi on the grounds with space to accommodate up to 250 guests for your celebration. Thanks to its mountain setting, the valley offers a beautiful backdrop whatever the season and provides numerous outdoor opportunities for simply stunning wedding photography. A spectacular working waterwheel provides a striking and unique backdrop for your soon-to-be treasured pictures.

Best wedding venue in the Lake District!

If you love The Lake District and the outdoors this venue is the one for you! All of our guests were blown away by the surroundings and we were able to tailor it to exactly what we wanted!

Epic venue! Perfect wedding.

We got married in September 2022 here, the views are stunning, the house is perfectly quirky. It was such a brilliant experience to be able to organise all our own details and stay with our families all weekend. In fact we went up a bit earlier and stayed in the fellside cottage from Wednesday before the wedding. I would 100% recommend! Thank you coppermines for the best day of our lives.
