Hoping you can help me - we are looking for a wedding venue in the Lake District that can comfortably take 90-100 people for a civil ceremony and a wedding breakfast somewhere in the Lake District. There will be no extras for the evening do. We're hoping to get married next year sometime but are open on dates as will leave it until we find the perfect place.
We've started looking at certain places including Inn on the Lake which we loved (though we didn't like the area for the evening do and they're pretty full now for next year), Cragwood (fab though looks too small), Beech Hill & Low Wood (didn't like as both on busy road), Langdale Chase (think evening room is too small) and Lodore Falls (liked venue but didn't like the room where you get married). We love the Lakes as it is where we first went on one of our breaks together - awww!
Our requirements are a great lake/mountain view (preferably one that you can see from the wedding breakfast room), a building with character, nice room to get married in (or outside option) that isn't too corporate, hotels nearby where you can stay, great food, an evening room that has space for dancing and a nice atmosphere to it. Preferably we are looking at the Mid Lakes or possibly South as live in Chester currently.
We're struggling at the moment so any insider tips would be hugely appreciated!!!! Thanks all tripadvisors,
