Start your happily ever after

We are delighted that you have found your way to us and are interested in celebrating your very special day at The Swan! Nothing brings a smile to our face like seeing a happy couple tie the knot. We understand it’s not just about the flowers and first dance, but all the details in between.

From the day of your first meeting with our wedding coordinator to the day you say “I do” you will receive an excellent service from our team and we will together tailor the perfect day to suit your idea of how you want to celebrate this very special occasion.

Celebrate your small wedding in the Lake District with our mid-week wedding packages.

If you are thinking about getting married in the next few months, it is likely that you will be planning a smaller wedding celebration with just the closest loved ones and we believe that, whilst you may not be able to have the wedding you had originally envisaged due to current restrictions, you should absolutely be able to have the best, most beautiful and memorable day of your lives!

So, we have put together an exclusive wedding package for those intimate weddings we now expect to see more of. We would love to chat with you about your wedding plans so please do not hesitate to get in touch to discuss your special day!

"To everything, there is a season.."


We are lucky enough to be situated in the Lake District with stunning surroundings in all seasons - come rain or shine (or snow!) we guarantee a gorgeous wedding with beautifully set event spaces and impressive backdrops both inside and around the hotel grounds.

In Spring and Summer the grounds come alive and there is no other way of describing it other than absolutely breathtaking. Sunny weather allows for drinks and canapes to be enjoyed on the lawn in front of the river, soaking up the sun with the drinks of your choice – perhaps a refreshing gin, an ice cold beer or a timeless glass of fizz!

If you have always dreamed of that cosy autumnal or romantic Winter Wonderland wedding, look no further!

Autumn brings spectacular colours to the grounds and are perfect for a cosy and warm wedding feel. In winter the Lake District can be a speculator wonderland for the perfect wedding - think mulled wine and festive cocktails, roaring fires and dramatic backdrops for those weddings snaps.

We offer discounted rates on our wedding package from November – March with prices from £72 per wedding guest. 










Fabulous food...

For us, food is at the heart of every celebration with friends and family, but that doesn’t have to mean a traditional wedding breakfast. We cater for all tastes, kicking off with canapes, peaking with the main meal and finishing strong with evening buffets and munchies (vital fuel for dancing the night away).

We have delicious sample menus available for a traditional three course sit-down meal, however we are happy to discuss any specific requests you may have.


...and delicious drinks

If you and your guests are partial to a tipple or 2, our options for reception drinks is pretty extensive. Choose from champagne, prosecco, beer, cocktails, mulled wine or gin and tonics. 

We offer a fabulous selection of wines to accompany your meal and a glass of champagne is a must for toasting the speeches!
