Set in 110 acres of private ancient parkland on the unspoilt shores of Lake Windermere, Town Head would be the perfect venue to host your event or party.

Cheryl and David have created a wedding venue of your dreams and we’re lucky enough to be the exclusive caterer on site! The historic Estate enjoys extensive grounds with half a mile of private lake frontage, boathouse and the fully restored wedding barn with luxury accommodation.

Town Head is host to a beautiful Victorian boathouse on the lake shore with its shingle beach and a gorgeous day room above.

If you are planning a weekend celebration, then the Boat House gives you the opportunity to plan something truly unique. It has full lighting and underfloor heating, so why not invite your family and friends for drinks on the balcony the night before the wedding, or perhaps enjoy a barbeque on the beach and a play on the Lake. The recent addition of the jetty means that you could arrive by Boat, or else treat your guests to a cruise on the lake as part of your celebrations. We work regularly with Windermere Lake Cruises who have a variety of launches depending on your guest numbers. Both the Boat House and the lake shore are licensed to hold weddings and civil ceremonies. The Boat House itself would seat up to 30 comfortably for a ceremony, whereas guest numbers outside on the Lake shore are essentially unlimited.

As a traditional stone bank barn, it is built with access from either the lower or upper ground floor level. On the lower level is a super stylish bar and separate lounge area with relaxed seating, perfect for catching up with friends and relatives. Access to the upper ground floor is either via open stairs from the bar, or direct from the rear of the Barn through the original timber barn doors. The upper ground floor comprises a beautiful open plan space, flooded with natural light, which can comfortably seat up to 120 guests for a ceremony and wedding breakfast. The Wedding Barn itself is set in the most stunning surroundings.

As a destination venue we understand that you and your guests may be travelling from all over the country and even from overseas. We are therefore pleased to offer newly renovated luxury accommodation for up to 22 overnight guests on the Estate.  Our aim is to make every guest feel as special as you.

All accommodation is included for a 2 night stay, but if you can’t bare to leave, additional nights are available by arrangement.  We are able to supply cots and highchairs on request.

We really are extremely lucky to be Town Head’s Exclusive Caterer and love working with Cheryl, Tanya, Ness and the rest of the team!
