    The most incredible wedding venue!

    When we looked at Town Head Estate last year as a possible wedding venue, it was still very much a building site. But we instantly fell in love with the location and the ability for guests to sleep there, having access to lake Windermere for a swim, gorgeous land which can be used in so many different ways and a really romantic greenhouse. Cheryl showed us around and explained all of her ideas for the place - from the bridal suite to the hot tubs and a jetty by the lake. She had it completely figured out. In the end it was clear for us that Town Head was it!

    We were lucky enough to get a weekend booking and our wedding took place in September '21 with the venue exactly how it had been described to us. The beautiful ceremony barn, the on-site accommodation, the boathouse, the bar and everything else was perfect.

    Throughout the planning process, Cheryl has been extremely patient, friendly and helpful, making sure we felt comfortable with everything she did. I think we may have won the price for asking the most questions in the lead up :D - but to every question, Cheryl had an answer or a solution (i.e. plans for rain, sign for ceremony music to start, where to best serve cocktails, the list goes on). She also put us in touch with other suppliers and was genuinely a great sound board for the plans we had in mind. This really put us at ease and we felt relaxed and excited when the weekend finally came.

    The day ran smoothly with the help of Cheryl and the team who were there to make sure everything was going well, which was hugely appreciated.

    All in all, we 100% recommend this venue which, due to the lovely owners, amazing location and perfectly renovated barns/accommodation - the ideal place to get married!

    Better than perfect

    We got married I mid-July at town head estate and had the most perfect wedding imaginable. The venue itself is amazing and the grounds the venue is on are stunning. We had really good weather for our day and changed our ceremony last minute to take place outside. The staff are tremendous and are so helpful and attentive. They helped the day run so smoothly and took a lot of pressure away from us. I also felt we got amazing value for money.

    We've had so many compliments from our guests saying it's the most perfect and beautiful wedding they've ever been to.

    Everything went so perfectly and I couldn't recommend this venue and the team enough

    The most perfect day

    Wow, there are no words! We booked the TH for our wedding whilst it was a building site, why you say? Because we had every faith in Cheryl’s vision of the final product! We 100% made the right decision! We had originally booked to have our ceremony in the boat house on lake Windermere but on the morning of the wedding it was raining and I mean RAINING! Cheryl asked me due to this and the walk down to the boathouse would we like our ceremony in the barn. We are truly thankful of this offer as it ended up being perfect! Even thinking about it now makes me emotional at how amazing it was. The stone walls of the building and adjoining to our reception area along with the gorgeous ambience of the lighting made it truly romantic! Even though the rain was non stop all day we feel it added to the vibe of our boho relaxed wedding and the photos are truly stunning. Tanya was our planner for the day and nothing was too big nor small of an ask! She did a wonderful job running around making sure everything was just perfect! If we could marry here again we would in a heartbeat and I truly hope one day we can renew our wedding at this gorgeous estate! Before the wedding when locals asked where we was getting married they stated it as the ‘new and exclusive’ place to get married and they were so right! Also if we had known how gorgeous the bridal cottage would end up being we would of booked to stay here too as it’s stunning, the attention to detail has the true wow factor and the bridal suite for getting ready was divine! Thank you all at TH for giving us the intimate wedding we had dreamt of! Mel & Craig xx

    Town Head Estate's reply:

    That is SO wonderful to hear Mel, you and Craig were a dream couple and we couldn't have been happier you chose TH for your wedding, especially considering it really was a building site when you booked! Just goes to show the weather doesn't matter two hoots by the time you get here, it's who you're with that counts. Massive congratulations from all at Town Head and we wish you a lifetime of love and happiness together!! xxxxx

    Perfect venue

    What a perfect venue! Cheryl and David have done an absolutely amazing job renovating the estate into the amazing venue it is now. When we first viewed the venue in September 2020, it was a building site, with no floors and was basically a shell. It was a bit of a gamble, but it really paid off! The finish of the barn and all the accommodation is very high end. We loved the flexibility of the venue, with a number of options of how a wedding could be run from using the barn/hiring a marquee/ using the boathouse and getting married outside. The grounds were a big selling point for us with Town Head having large grounds and even its own private beach overlooking Lake Windermere. This allowed us to have a wedding morning swim in the lake with our guests and get married outside overlooking the shores of Lake Windermere. We also managed to have an activity day with our guests the day after the wedding, with yoga in the boathouse and watersports (we hired ourselves) on the lake.

    It was brilliant to be able to have all our close family staying on site allowing us to spend more time with them before, during and after the wedding and an accessible room for my grandparents. Cheryl and her second in command Nessa could not have been more helpful before, on and after the big day! Thank you everyone at Town Head Estate for making our wedding day so special and memorable.

    Town Head Estate's reply:

    Thank you so much for this wonderful review! You were an absolute dream of a couple and I'm so pleased you managed to make such good use of each and every bit of the estate. I think every wedding should now start with a lake swim, what better way to start the day! All the best to both of you and thank you once again. Cheryl, Nessa and all at Team TH. xxx
