Information For New House Farm

New House Farm situated in the stunning Lorton valley and surrounded by the Lakeland Fells is that unique and special place.

Originally built in 1650, New House Farm has retained many of its original features but combines them with a touch of elegance and sophistication to create an atmosphere of a bygone era. Sitting rooms with open log fires, individually designed bedrooms with heavenly beds, delicious duvets and wonderful changing views go to create this unique private venue. The secluded gardens, babbling brooks, enchanting pond and stunning Lake District scenery add the finishing touches to a fairytale wedding and provide the perfect backdrop for memorable romantic photographs.

The wedding receptions are held in The Hayloft of an original Lakeland barn which has been restored to the highest standards with traditional materials. Bright and airy with a graceful combination of rustic chic and modern facilities the oak beams are offset by the natural exposed stone walls.

New House Farm is a perfect location for your winter wedding. Surrounded by stunning scenery, rolling hills that go on for miles, what better setting could you ask for of crisp snow topped mountains and glistening waters. Our winter weddings run from November until mid March, at a reduced costing.

For smaller weddings we offer a mid week wedding package which is available at a reduced cost. You will have access to the barn from Sunday Afternoon until your special day to decorate how you please.

For intimate weddings with up to 20 of your closest family and friends, our licensed room within our country house will create the perfect backdrop for your special day. This can be tailored to suit every couple, from traditional to a more relaxed informal style.Timings for your Wedding can be from as early in the day as you like until Midnight when the bar and music will close in accordance with our licensing permission.

Carriages are suggested at 12.10 a.m.

A very special corner of the world
We were lucky enough to be able to have our wedding at New House Farm on the 19th December. Although this was not the date (or the numbers) we had originally planned, Hazel was with us every step of the way and made it possible for us to have the most magical day! New House Farm and it's location are absolutely stunning. There is always a warm welcome and a wonderful breakfast we wouldn't hesitate to recommend New House Farm to anyone looking for a romantic and very special wedding venue. We feel incredibly grateful to have been able to end our year on a real high and that was down to Hazel and her team who made the day possible at such short notice!

The Benson wedding weekend
Had the most perfect weekend for our sons wedding. Stayed over on Friday and Saturday. Friday was for Mrs B and our friend Denise to titivate the hayloft for the wedding, the loft already looked amazing but my new daughter wanted a few personal touches. Accommodation was superb, Hazel is definitely the hostess with the mostest and her staff could not have been more helpful. All the guests at the wedding commented on what a perfect location for a wedding. Hazel on behalf of Ricky and Adele, thank you and your staff for a fabulous weekend

Had my wedding here 21st September 2019. Was absolutely wonderful, the staff were incredible, venue perfect and the overall hospitality was 5 star. Would thank everyone there so much, and would happily tell people it is the perfect venue, and the 2 nights there were incredibly comfortable for the family. Thanks to Hazel and her team for it all.

Wedding at New House Farm
The most divine place to get married. The house is maintained perfectly and it has buckets of charm ! The staff there are all lovely, warm and really helpful ! We only needed to ask and our requests were met ! The hayloft was the perfect space and the surrounding areas are sublime ! We got married on the 28th of September and it was just the best day! Hazel has made every part of the process so easy and she was so helpful in suggesting suppliers and ideas! Even when we came up against any trouble she was really resourceful and keen to help . We absolutely loved how you made us feel special and not just like another couple getting married. Thanks so much new house farm ! We will be back for our anniversary ! Xx
