At the bottom of the South Lakes lies Abbey House Hotel & Gardens, just a short drive from the Heart of the English Lake District and a few miles from major transport links.
The Hotel takes its name from the neighbouring ruins of one of the greatest Cistercian foundations in the country, Furness Abbey. The Furness Abbey can be found lying behind the trees, at the end of their beautiful grounds. Set in 14 acres of picturesque woodlands, the award-winning, four silver star, luxury Abbey House Hotel & Gardens is the perfect place for your perfect day.
Abbey House was built in 1914 by one of England’s most noted architects, Sir Edwin Lutyens, that alone makes Abbey House a unique wedding venue!
The sheer majesty of the building as you turn into the driveway truly delivers the WOW factor to all of your special guests. In it’s centenary year, Abbey House underwent a multi-million pound transformation, creating the luxury wedding venue, bedrooms and luxury suites they now have today. Continued investment and excellent management ensures that all aspects of this venue deliver every time, ensuring your wedding day is THE one that’s talked about for years to come! The refurbishment has retained all of the Edwardian character, yet they have been able to infuse a modern twist throughout, including all of those bedroom creature comforts we all love and expect.
Fourteen acres of picturesque grounds, including two prime outdoor ceremony sites, enable Abbey House to deliver on all ceremony styles, their planning team can even arrange for this to take place in the adjacent Furness Abbey ruins offering a truly unique ceremony experience.
Abbey House offers a mixture of exclusive and non-exclusive events and can tailor any of their advertised packages to a couples requirements, if you don’t see it ask, if it can be done they’ll do their utmost to make it happen.
We would give it 10 stars if we could. Absolutely amazing place and service. From the day we booked the wedding on our first visit here with manager John until the day after the wedding the whole staff from house keeping to management make you feel like you are the only wedding that matters, they cannot do enough to make you feel special. Attention to detail is everything, the staff do everything for you, you can honestly just turn up and they make sure the day runs smoothly without you having to stress over anything. All our guests were as wowed by the place as we are, every one of them commented on how special the venue was and how good the staff were. We would highly recommend Abbey House to anyone looking for that special, out of this world wedding venue. Abbey House will always hold a special place in our hearts for the way they made our wedding so special.

We got married here on the 11th April, I can’t recommend this place enough from start to finish the whole experience has been amazing. From our wedding coordinator, Cameron running such a tight ship on the day and George our fantastic toast master. All our guests commented on all the staff, waiters and the atmosphere throughout the day. From arriving the day before to breakfast the day after everything was perfect. I knew I was in safe hands and happy I chose such a stunning venue for our special day. My only concern was the food as in some cases dining for so many guests, the quality of the food can sometimes get lost however this was NOT the case here. Every guest commented on every beautiful course of food. Thank you all at Abbey house for all having an input into our special day.
