The Wedding Barn is the perfect combination of traditional and modern.

Our Wedding Barn offers a wedding venue unlike any other in the Lake District. Its location on the shores of Lake Windermere, the luxurious facilities and attention to detail, make it the perfect location for your wedding.

Remaining true to the natural beauty of the building itself, our Wedding Barn is the perfect combination of traditional and modern. Exposed stone walls and beautiful oak beams are brought to life by modern twists in terms of LED lighting, an inbuilt sound system and full underfloor heating.

As a traditional stone bank barn, it is built with access from either the lower or upper ground floor level. On the lower level is a super stylish bar and separate lounge area with relaxed seating, perfect for catching up with friends and relatives. Access to the upper ground floor is either via open stairs from the bar, or direct from the rear of the Barn through the original timber barn doors. The upper ground floor comprises a beautiful open plan space, flooded with natural light, which can comfortably seat up to 120 guests for a ceremony and wedding breakfast. The Wedding Barn itself is set in the most stunning surroundings. 

Table Plan Options

We have a number of table plan suggestions, click below to see. Or to discuss custom table plans, please contact us.

We worry about every little detail, so you don't need to.

The Terrace

What was once a farmyard has been transformed into an elegant terrace with a grand staircase leading directly down into beautifully landscaped gardens complete with a Band Stand. In addition, what was once a traditional “long drop” outside WC has been given a new lease of life as a cocktail and gin bar. With decking overlooking the gardens, it can be incorporated into your celebrations however you wish. Perhaps a cocktail hour after your wedding breakfast to kick start the party!

The Wedding Barn has been sympathetically modernised to include lighting, in built speakers and a PA system to minimise the list of things you need to organise. We can provide traditional round tables or rustic trestles, together with oak cross-back chairs for both the ceremony and the Wedding Breakfast.

Bar & Lounge

We have built not one, but two of the most beautifully stylish bars for you to enjoy. The main bar is inside the Wedding Barn, stocking everything you would expect on your wedding day including draft beers, wines and spirits.  In addition to an outside gin and cocktail bar with decking overlooking the gardens. We have an amazing wine list and we are happy to source any special requests wherever possible. We are able to offer a variety of drinks packages to suit all tastes and budgets.

However, people like what they like and so if you do prefer to bring your own wine or fizz then we are happy for you to do so, subject to reasonable limits and payment of a corkage charge (see FAQs for full details).

Our team are happy to provide drinks from either of our two bars, or we will happily serve drinks to you and your guests at the Boat House, the Croquet Lawn, the Kitchen Gardens, the lake shore, or anywhere else you can think of to fit with your plans.

Food & Catering

We are delighted to confirm that Karen Rhodes Weddings & Events provide exclusive catering at Town Head. Using local ingredients produced here in the Lake District wherever possible, they offer an outstanding service, not only in terms of the quality of the food, but also in terms of the diversity of the menu and the professionalism of their staff. Pricing is competitive and every menu is bespoke, meaning that you and your guests can enjoy a menu that is completely unique to you. They even have a food van should you prefer a more relaxed street food feel, perhaps for your evening food! Wrap around catering is also available should you wish to plan additional meals for you and your guests to all eat together in the days either side of your wedding.

Please note that the catering costs are not included in the prices at Town Head, as this is something that you will arrange separately with Karen Rhodes Weddings and Events once you have booked your date with us. However, we have installed a full catering kitchen to ensure that additional costs are avoided wherever possible and that everything runs seamlessly on the day.

We take no commission from any of our suppliers, including Karen Rhodes. We work exclusively with Karen Rhodes purely because we have seen first-hand the magic that they bring to weddings at Town Head.

We'd love to hear from you.
