Your North West Wedding- December 2021/January 2022 (Issue 71)

EDEN BARN, CA17 4PQ 01768 341 461 | Perfectly situated in the Cumbrian countryside is Eden Barn. This 200-year-old Westmorland stone barn was transformed after the owner’s daughter asked if she could hold her reception there in 2015. The small family-run venue is full of rustic charm, from the giant chandeliers and exposed stone walls to the limestone flagged floor and vaulted ceiling. Outside there are expansive views, a hand-thatched gazebo and landscaped grounds. There’s also a new Couples Lounge with a suspended green lighting canopy and wall of mirrors. This room has a boho, relaxed vibe and is available exclusively throughout the day. CELEBRATE IN STYLE The Main Barn is used for ceremonies followed by a drinks reception in the adjoining reception/bar area, which has wooden vaulted ceilings, stone-flagged flooring and cosy seating areas. The bespoke bar is handcrafted from oak, and above it hangs a striking floral canopy. There’s also a new food preparation area, luxury toilet facilities and underfloor heating throughout. It can seat up to 144 day guests on rustic wooden trestle tables, 136 on round versions and 200 for the evening celebration. Outdoor ceremonies take place under the hand-crafted pergola with a breathtaking scenic backdrop. There are also several historic churches nearby, including the charming St Theobald’s, which is only half a mile away. WE LOVE... Eden Barn is pet friendly, and couples are welcome to book the services of local caters, Southcott Events. HUNDITH HILL HOTEL, CA13 9TH 01900 822 092 | The exterior of Hundith Hill Hotel was constructed using local sandstone and Lakeland slate flooring, which looks stunning in those all-important photographs. Inside is a mixture of classic and modern bedrooms for guests to choose from and a bar. This impressive venue has landscaped grounds, a tree-lined driveway and striking views of the surrounding countryside. CELEBRATE IN STYLE The Dining Room is a beautifully-decorated area with views of the raised garden and room for 50 guests for the ceremony and 32 for the reception.
