Information For The Villa Levens

The Villa Levens is a 4 star hotel set in 14 acres of grounds and is ideally situated near to the M6, whilst still being secluded, and accessed via a winding tree lined driveway – a perfect place for some beautiful wedding photographs.

The Pavilion, the largest of our rooms and a marquee style function suite, can hold up to 250 people. The Pavilion is a completely self-contained building in the grounds of the hotel. The Brettargh Suite, our 19th century Chapel with the original working bell and stained-glass windows, can accommodate for up to 120 guests for a ceremony.

Most wedding ceremonies will take place in the Brettargh Suite followed by welcome drinks and canapes in the main house, terrace or lawn whilst photographs are being taken.
The wedding party will then move down to The Pavilion for the remainder of your celebrations.

We are very happy for couples to decorate the pavilion as they wish, either themselves, by a venue dresser or by giving us instructions on how everything should be setup if you are unable to access the Pavilion/room the previous night.
We invite all of our couples to a complimentary taster meal before deciding on your final wedding breakfast menu

The main hotel has 22 luxurious en-suite bedrooms and are offered to the wedding party at discounted rates for the night of the wedding and any additional nights you may wish to stay
A room of your choosing would be complimentary on the night of the wedding.

We love to show our beautiful venue to prospective wedding couples and would like to invite you to arrange a time and date to come in for a look around, coffee and chat without any obligation

If this is something you would like to do, please do not hesitate to contact me and I will be more than happy to arrange a time to suit you.

Just beautiful!
The venue itself is so gorgeous from the first moment you turn on to its drive. It’s a beautiful private road leading up to the venue’s love heart shaped lawn in front of the a beautiful old stone building which used to be a convent. It has its very own little chapel which makes it easy to organise where the ceremony will take place. Afterwards the party was down in The Pavilion. This room took my breath away and was just gorgeous. I cannot stress enough how amazing all the staff where and nothing with was too much of an ask for them. They made my day perfect and I will forever be grateful to them. I highly recommend this place as it’s just picturesque. Fabulous staff and easy access for people travelling from here, there and everywhere as it’s jut a little off from the motorway. So easy for them to find however it does not give the feeling of being near a motorway as it situated on the edge of the Lake District.
