Sally & Simon

We love the Lake District and are keen fell walkers, therefore we fell in love with the views from Holbeck Ghyll, it is ideally situated. The planning of the wedding was stress free due to all of the help and support provided by the wedding co-ordinator, he didn't miss a thing and managed the bride's last minute panics well. Sally stayed there the night before the wedding in Madison House with her family. Everyone enjoyed this; they had beauty and relaxation treatments, a perfect meal, and then had time in the hot tub. On the day of the wedding, breakfast arrived in the suite, quickly followed by the hairdresser/beautician and florist. It was wonderful to have plenty of room for all and this added to the positive experience. Sally particularly liked having the large window to watch her flower girls running around in the garden with the fells in the background. The weather was perfect on the day, although we feel it would have been the perfect day regardless of the weather. Throughout the wedding, the staff catered to our guests’ every need. Many commented that they have never felt so well looked after. The food was of a very high standard and was served quickly, a few guests had special requests and all were met.

Julie & Steven

All the wonderful staff at Holbeck Ghyll made our wedding just the most perfect day.We are just so pleased we chose Holbeck for our wedding as we wanted just Steven,myself and our three children to enjoy a memorable, meaningful, intimate ceremony and it certainly was all that and more. Once again we would like to say a huge thanks to all involved, it was just perfect, even the weather was fabulous! I should also add about mine and Steven’s astonishment at our children eating the excellent, superb food - we really had not expected that!

They loved everything from the duck to the pigeon and in fact were demanding it for tea when we got home, so huge compliments to the excellent chef, and his team. We are all looking forward to our next visit to Holbeck and staying in the exquisite Madison House.

 Charlotte & Scott

We had a wonderful wedding in February at Holbeck with just our immediate family (15 of us). From the moment we chose the hotel to the day we left after the wedding they couldn't have been more helpful. They were flexible with the menu choices, rooms for the wedding and even let us have the library all to ourselves after the ceremony. It was my husband’s birthday the next morning and they baked him a birthday cake - just perfect!
