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.

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.

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

Wedding Review
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.

Best Wedding ever
We had our reception and wedding breakfast at New House Farm.
Where do we begin to review Hazel and New House Farm. To first review New House, it is a beautiful venue, the barn is perfect for a wedding and the grounds are stunning. The rooms are beautiful and luxurious and breakfast was delicious. Even having little Paws (the dog) potter about added to the charm of the venue.

However, all this wouldn’t be as amazing if Hazel and her team were not running it. Hazel is a real life fairy godmother. When we came to New House, we were completely clueless about what to do and how it was done. Hazel guided us on the usual timings and processes of a wedding day and gave us many, many, many tips and contacts which we really needed.

Hazel went above and beyond to help make our day exactly what we wanted, from our first time meeting right through the actual day and until we left. She was an integral part of our wedding planning and ourselves and our families could not have asked for more.

We wholeheartedly recommend New House to any couple who want a stunning country wedding. The service was 11 out of 10 and you would be very lucky to have your wedding there. We will certainly be going back for years to come. It is a truly special place.

A massive thanks from the Holmes
