The birthplace of one of the fathers of English Romanticism is the perfect setting for your fairytale Lake District wedding. Wordsworth House and Garden is a beautiful Georgian property in the gem town of Cockermouth, on the edge of the national park. We offer packages for civil ceremonies, renewal of vows and other special occasions.
We didn't want to marry in a church or a concrete registry office, so we were thrilled to have our ceremony at Wordsworth House. We had the whole house and garden to ourselves. It made a fabulous backdrop for photos – and our guests loved exploring!
Choose from the elegant dining room, intimate drawing room or atmospheric Georgian kitchen for your ceremony – we close to the public when we host weddings, so you'll have the place to yourselves. Then pose for photographs in our glorious walled garden or on Wordsworth's famous terrace.
So excited to marry at Wordsworth House
I can’t tell you how excited we were about booking Wordsworth House for our wedding. It’s just beautiful, and being a Cockermouth lass through and through, it was the ideal choice for us, especially as Steve – who has a restaurant in the town – has totally taken the place to his heart too. The staff were so helpful and friendly during the build up and on the day itself. Everything was perfect – we cannot recommended the place enough!
