About Silverholme Manor

The Lake District is famed for its romance - from the iconic poets who lived here to the rolling views and atmospheric scenery. And so, if this is where you dream of tying the knot, you'll need a venue just as magical, like Silverholme Manor.

Built in 1820, Silverholme Manor has an almost mythical location, nestled right on the edge of Lake Windermere, benefitting from incredible views out over the water. Its dollhouse-like, period structure is Grade II Listed and would look picture-perfect in wedding photos. But, while Silverholme Manor boasts a long history, its 2013 renovation ensures that you have all the mod cons you might need. From underfloor heating to a Sonos sound system, the team have done everything they can to bring it into the 21st-century - including, quite impressively, going carbon neutral.

Many couples wonder about accommodation, especially when choosing a rural wedding venue, but Silverholme Manor has this in spades. Not only can the house itself accommodate up to 18 people - including a gorgeous Bridal Suite - the estate is home to a flurry of historic cottages which offer plenty more space for guests.

As for the capacity on the day, you're invited to welcome up to 200 of your friends and family to celebrate you here, hosted either in the main house, Coach House or outside in a marquee or tipi. There are three different spaces inside which you can take over for a civil ceremony or you could say 'I Do' against a backdrop of the lake with an outdoor humanist ceremony. And, for those who'd prefer a church wedding, the team has a list of seven local churches, too.

When it comes to food, catering in-house is not provided, but Silverholme works with a select number of caterers who they believe deliver the very best in local, seasonal food, and so they ask that you work with their preferred supplier list.

Testimonials For Silverholme Manor

Always a pleasure to shoot at this beautiful venueJUNE, 2024

Silverholme is one of my favourite Lake District wedding venues. You really can't beat the location and the unique offering of Silverholme. It manages to be grand and homely all at the same time. Absolutely adore photographing weddings here and hope to return many times in the coming years.

An Awesome WeddingJUNE, 2024

We planned the most amazing Wedding for our daughter and son-in-law. The venue at Silverholme Manor is awesome but even better is being able to build the wedding of 'their' dreams and having a Wedding weekend rather than a Wedding Day. The staff at Graythwaite were amazing and set everything up for success. They have a preferred supplier list second to none - who work together like a 'well-oiled-machine' The weather was incredibly kind - and who wouldn't want to take their marriage vows surrounded by the people they love the most in the world, with that view :)

BEST location for our weddingMARCH, 2024

My husband and I had a week-long wedding at Silverholme Manor with 50 guests and it was honestly the best experience we've ever had. Not only is the manor beautiful, but the grounds and views over Lake Windermere are stunning! Our guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been to - and that was in no small part to Silverholme. We loved the homey-feel of the venue. They have preserved a lot of it's vintage charm while providing cozy and comfortable rooms and maintaining high-end facilities in the kitchen and bathrooms. Our guests spent time hanging by the fire in the great room, playing lawn games on the front lawn and exploring the grounds. We offered a bus tour/ golf trip as well which was incredibly convenient from their location and went off without a hitch. We rented Low Graythwaite Hall, Hullet Hall and Grubbings as well for guests. Our wedding ceremony was in the adjoining coach house, which was perfect for 50 guests. Vanessa helped us to book everything, and coordinated with other Graythwaite Estate managers to extend out to Grubbings Cottage. She offered us viewings, was prompt with questions and was quick to respond to any issue we had (e.g. we requested cots last minute for visiting families and she got them set up within the hour). If you have a larger party, they set up a marquee on the grounds which I imagine would be wonderful as well with the lake views. We used the Coach House for more than just the ceremony - we had a pub-night there the night before and it held our dinner and reception beautifully. If anyone has any questions about it or would like more info I'm happy to provide a recommendation!

Glorious Venue!DECEMBER, 2023

I have had the pleasure of working on this epic site a few times and each time doesn't disappoint! The team are super helpful and fun to be around and the place is just so wonderfully styled. Each client has a great time and loves the freedom of roaming this spectacular place on such an important celebration. There are many ways to utilise the space and you must take in that view as much as possible!
