How many guests can we invite?
Between 30 and 70 guests can be seated for a formal wedding breakfast in the Dalzell Room, whilst the conservatory can seat a further 20 guests should you wish to invite more. The Devonshire Fell can cater for up to a 100 for an evening reception.
How about smaller weddings?
We can hold ceremonies and weddings for more intimate weddings of up to 30 guests but please note weddings must take the hotel and all 16 bedrooms exclusively. In some cases, our Conservatory may be available for wedding celebrations of 20 or less and prices for this are available on request.
Can we hold a civil ceremony at the Devonshire Fell?
The Dalzell Room, Conservatory and Bistro are all licensed to hold ceremonies at no additional cost. These ground floor rooms have been approved by the local authority to hold Civil Marriage Ceremonies and Partnership Unions.
What about the bedrooms?
We will reserve all sixteen bedrooms on the evening of your wedding exclusively for your party and should you wish to pass on the accommodation costs to your guests we will provide a rooming list to facilitate and guests can pay for them directly on check out.
Please note that any rooms that may remain unsold will be charged back to your account.
We have sixteen exquisitely appointed bedrooms for your guests to enjoy, personally styled by the Duchess of Devonshire, including two large suites, both with a super king bed, two bathrooms and a living room with sofa bed giving ample space for the bridal party and their entourage. The Hotel will be all yours from 12 noon until 10 am. The check in time for bedrooms is normally 3pm. However special arrangements for early check in can be made for the bridal party.
We have extra accomodation in our two holidays cottages, find out more by clicking here.
How do I book?
Once you have your date, our wedding planner will provisionally hold the date for you for 14 days. To confirm your date with us a non-refundable and non-transferable deposit of £1,250 is required.
Do I have to make all my menu decisions before I book?
No, just an indication of your requirements is all we need to take your booking. We appreciate that it is a big decision – our wedding planner will guide you through the whole process and at the final detail appointment a month or so before, all the little details will be discussed.
Can I decorate the Devonshire Fell, the Dalzell Room or the tables?
It’s your day – you can have it your way, simply discuss your ideas and plans with our wedding co-ordinators, and if it’s possible it’s no problem.
