Wedding Reception Venue

Heather Glen Country House

Heather Glen Country House


Under the supervisory eye of Judith Smith, the Heather Glen has built a reputation as a leading wedding venue in Cumbria.
The Heather Glen becomes your ‘home for the day’, and with exclusive use being available as part of your arrangements our team is solely focused on ensuring the day you deserve.

To help, the Heather Glen has in addition to its own wedding furnishings (which come as part of any wedding at no extra cost) contacts who can provide a range of services to assist you or work with your choice of suppliers.

Our Eden View Room caters for up to 120 day guests, and 180 in the evening. We have a choice of two bars, lounge and Eden View Room, and lounges for family and friends to take a moment to relax. In the evening the Eden View Room transforms into the setting for your chosen entertainment. As a general rule the Heather Glen does not ask you to choose from a choice of preset menu options, preferring to discuss our superb range of dishes on offer and assisting in tailor making your Wedding Breakfast Menu to meet all dietary requirements.

Should you wish we are happy to discuss smaller and more intimate celebrations. Again Judith will be happy meet with you to discuss your wishes.

Licensed for Civil Ceremonies, we have in 2016 added the West View Room. This beautiful oak panelled room has been specifically built and decorated for your ceremony, and can cater for up to 120 guests. Our extensive country gardens have many opportunities for wedding photographs.

Sun sets over the Eden Valley are a fantastic sight!
As part of our ongoing work in 2016 we added four new bedrooms, decorated in a contemporary style, to provide extra accommodation for your guests. We now offer seven bedrooms of our own, but we also work closely with several other local accommodation providers offering guest bedrooms and self catering. Exclusive use of the Heather Glen includes our seven bedrooms.

With personal experience of the difficulties some family members have had in accessing parts of some wedding venues, we have installed a disabled lift to ensure access to our bedrooms. Our bedrooms, restaurants, lounges, bars and top car park are all disabled friendly. Coach and car parking are on the main drive.
