Your Wedding at Melmerby Hall

There’s no prettier setting for a classic country wedding than Melmerby. This rose-gold sandstone 17C manor house is set in magnificent grounds with a walled garden, archery lawn and a valley of ancient trees leading down to a tributary of the River Eden.

Marry in the village church or Melmerby’s drawing room

If you’re having a church wedding, a secret path runs through the grounds to the pretty parish church of St John the Baptist with its restored bell tower and Estates woodland beyond. If you prefer a civic ceremony, hold it at home in your elegant chandeliered buttermilk drawing room with marble fireplace and tall windows overlooking long lawns.

Celebrate your wedding feast in the candlelit, claret dining hall with regal hearth. Catch up with with old friends by the fire in the panelled library. Prepare for the day and then relive it over breakfast in the sunlit orangerie by the cobbled courtyard and knot garden.

Party at the estate or the local village hall

Just a short procession down the drive and through the arch is Melmerby Village Hall, newly built from traditional Cumbrian red stone with handsome pillars, a large dance floor, a caterer’s kitchen and safe gardens for children. So if you’re looking to throw a party that rings out into the small hours, here’s your (very reasonably priced) solution. And the village comes with bakery, stores, pub, even Hollberrie’s stunning dress shop if anyone has an outfit crisis.

Grand and traditional, but with 5-star facilities

The rooms at Melmerby are elegant and luxurious. Four posters, roll top claw baths, rainfall showers, feather bedding encased in Egyptian cotton, fresh flowers in every room. The kitchens are fully equipped with a four oven Aga and Bosch gas hob and full size oven, two fridge freezers to pack with champagne and two dishwashers, so local caterers can prepare the feast of your dreams.

Guests with larger parties may book Melmerby with the adjoining Stag Cottage or neighbouring Kirkbride Hall which is reached directly through the Hall’s walled gardens. Melmerby has been restored to offer you five-star modern comfort: underfloor heating, fibre optic broadband, i-pad docking, and fully en-suite bathrooms. And yet it retains the warmth, grace and beauty of a bygone era of grand house parties and balls.
