Events and Celebrations

In the 1880’s Lord Lonsdale chose a secluded and peaceful place on which to build his favourite hunting lodge – and so Holbeck Ghyll was born. Perched high on a hill, boasting breathtaking views over Windermere lake and the Langdale fells, the house is a perfect setting for your own, private celebrations, business events or board meetings.

Whether simple and intimate or lavish and glamorous, celebrate with us and you’ll undoubtedly leave with cherished memories.  You may have a milestone anniversary coming up, a big birthday looming or you just want a place where you can surround yourself with friends and colleagues, Holbeck Ghyll is a wonderful setting for a memorable celebration and we can cater for everything from afternoon tea in one of the elegant drawing rooms, or a more lavish affair that includes exclusive use of the hotel.

We pride ourselves on offering first class service in luxurious but homely surroundings and the hotel is set in 18 acres of English country gardens and ancient woodland with nothing but the sound of babbling becks to distract you.  From the moment you and your guests step into our oak-panelled entrance hall, with its inglenook fireplace, a magical sense of history surrounds.

Thanks to the launch of our beautiful new private dining suite – Salon Privé – there is also now the option to celebrate in exclusive surroundings, serviced by your own kitchen, waiting staff and bespoke Michelin-starred menu. With floor-to-ceiling windows which gaze out over the lake and fells, it’s a lovely facility which sits separately from the main house next to the The Lodge – a detached retreat that offers six adjacent double suites, just in case you wish to make a night of it.

The best thing is there is no room hire charge for Salon Privé although minimum numbers may apply at certain times of the year and a set, three-course meal costs from £40 per person.
