The most luxury intimate wedding venue


Belmount Hall (formerly owned by Beatrix Potter) is a wedding venue with a difference, giving you flexibility with your plans for your wedding day so that it is special and personal to you. Not only is it in a perfect setting at the head of ‘Beatrix Potter Valley’, very close to the delightful village of Hawkshead, it offers an abundance of history, superb ‘hosting’ and service, and ‘country Georgian style’.

Hawkshead, near Ambleside, in the heart of the English Lake District, is enchanting, with cobbled streets and a wonderful atmosphere.

The main house is a Grade II Listed Georgian mansion. The West Barn Rooms are your dedicated party rooms for you to decorate as you wish. Yours will be the only wedding that weekend so that you may put your personal touch on the rooms.

To keep a high standard at Belmount Hall we only hold 6 weddings per year.

These are split in to 3 categories depending on wedding size.

For various reasons, we are not currently accepting bookings beyond 2023. We currently still have availability for 2023.

For the Wedding Breakfast, which would be served in the marquee, you would bring in outside caterers. We are happy to recommend suitable suppliers.

The evening party – music and dancing – will take place in the West Barn Rooms – a superb suite of inter connecting rooms on the west side of the house – see photos below..

Your Wedding Ceremony

Belmount Hall is an approved venue for your civil ceremony. The West Barn rooms, lined with open beams, featuring an open stone wall and beautiful large sash windows, are our licensed rooms. They are upstairs inside the house, meaning that you can have your whole day under one roof. The West Barn Indoor Marquee is perfect for a ceremony of up to 120 guests seated.

If you are looking at a religious ceremony, there are beautiful Lakeland churches nearby.  St. Michael’s of all Angels Church, Hawkshead is situated one mile from Belmount Hall. Built in around 1300 on the site of a Norse chapel, with views overlooking the village and the surrounding fells, working bells and a friendly welcome, the church provides a truly special setting to say your vows.

Down the valley, in Far Sawrey, is St Peter’s Church, which has wonderful views of fells to the north. Why not bring your guests from St Peter’s to Belmount Hall in an open top bus. It is a superb introduction to the Lakes!
