New House Farm is a Grade II listed wedding venue and country guest house situated in the stunning Lorton valley, not far from Buttermere and Cockermouth in Cumbria.

The property dates back to 1650 and is set within fifteen acres of open fields, woods, streams and ponds. It is surrounded by breathtaking views of the fells.

The Hayloft, Cart Shed and Milking Parlour offer a beautiful setting for couples looking to tie the knot. It is also ideal if you are looking to host special events such as birthday parties, christenings, anniversaries and baby showers.
