Keswick's ethereal beauty stole the hearts of our most romantic poets – including Coleridge and Wordsworth – and it will steal yours too. Right in the heart of Keswick, on the edge of Derwentwater Lake, is Derwentwater Hotel – a wedding venue in Cumbria with an idyllic backdrop of jawdropping proportions.

Stunning Lake Views

Step into Derwentwater Hotel’s gardens and you’ll see the magnificent Lake District’s mountains in distance, Derwentwater Lake in the fore, and you’ll get clear views of St Herbert’s Island – the largest of Derwentwater’s four islands, which was also the setting for 2016’s film Swallows and Amazons and the inspiration for Owl Island in Beatrix Potter’s The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin.

Choice of Wedding Rooms

There are three very special spaces that are licensed for weddings at Derwentwater Hotel – the restaurant (which can host 90-100 people), the small lounge (ideal for more intimate weddings) and the conservatory, which overlooks the lake and gardens. Imagine marrying here, before heading down to the lake for some unforgettable photo opportunities.
