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!

Family wedding
What an amazing place to stay-the farmhouse and wedding barn are set in lovely grounds- beautiful views from every window- the bedrooms are all large with en-suite bathrooms - the baths are massive... the hot water is super hot so check temperature before you get in - but whatever else you’ve got planned make time for a relaxing bath- the owner, Hazel and her staff were on hand when needed and happy to go the extra mile- nothing was too much trouble but at the same time they gave guests the space to make themselves at home - lovely hot tub- open fires in all the rooms downstairs- creaking floorboards- sash windows- wooden lintels- beams- if you want character then this place has it in spades... not a tv in sight and didn’t miss it - have I mentioned the breakfasts yet...delicious!!!

We attended a family wedding. There is separate accommodation but we stayed in Cockermouth
Wonderful venue. Location difficult to get to but definitely worth the effort..lots of parking and great taxi service.
The ceremony was special, food was wonderful.
Lots of space. We had a separate room to move to while the main room was reorganised throughout the day
Great chararacter features. Open fire, stone floors downstairs
Would definitely recommend.
