Sawrey House Country Hotel Weddings


Sawrey House Hotel offers you a very special combination of comfort and elegance set amidst the stunning beauty and tranquillity of the Lakeland fells. Located in the heart of the English Lake District, this splendid Victorian country house nestles in the pretty village of Near Sawrey and looks down over 3 acres of gardens to breathtaking views of Esthwaite Water and Grizedale Forest.

Close to Hawkshead, Coniston and Ambleside and within easy reach of Bowness, Windermere and many local attractions, Sawrey House Hotel is the ideal base to explore this stunning part of Cumbria.

Inside the hotel we have combined modern hospitality with the rustic charms of the Lake District, so you are able to relax and unwind as our experienced and enthusiastic staff invite you to make yourself completely at home as they look after your every need.


As a quintessentially English rural hideaway, Sawrey House Hotel is sure to win a place in the hearts of nature lovers and romantics everywhere and is the ideal country retreat for people who appreciate the finer pleasures of life.

Here at Sawrey House, with our secluded setting overlooking Esthwaite Water, we aim to create weddings as bespoke and individual as each couple.

We are lucky enough to take residence in the unspoilt Vale of Esthwaite meaning we can provide something that is away from the ordinary. From the moment you book, our wedding co-ordinator will be on hand to arrange as much or as little as you require, helping to guide you into making this the most cherished day of your life. With locally based and trusted suppliers we can arrange everything from cars to cakes!

With exclusive use of Sawrey House, not only are we able to host your wedding reception, but we are also licensed for civil ceremonies. These can be held in either our lake view restaurant, on the sweeping oak staircase or for the more intimate parties the lounge is also available.
