Rustic Wedding Venue near The Lake District

Hidden between patchwork fields, networks of glittering rivers and rolling Cumbrian hills, Figtree House is an exclusive wedding venue perfect for those looking to celebrate in a romantic scene of bucolic bliss. For rustic, boho inspired weddings in Cumbria, look no further than Figtree House.

The Venue Promising a wedding plucked straight from the pages of a fairy-tale, this exclusive wedding venue will capture your heart. Flaunting a smattering of rustic outbuildings, Figtree House ensures a beautifully simplistic background for the day’s festivities. The tumbledown barn complete with exposed stone walls and lofty beamed ceilings warmly welcomes up to 85 seated guests for a blessing or a lively wedding breakfast. Adorn with candles and bales of hay to celebrate with your nearest and dearest in true rough-luxe fashion.

The Accommodation The traditional farmhouse is perfectly private, ensuring a wonderfully blissful run up to the big day. Figtree House accommodates up to ten guests, meaning the entire wedding party can assist with last minute wedding preparations then relax in style. Gather the group around the fireplace for old fashioned board games or sink into the deep sofas in the snug for a film night to alleviate any pre-wedding jitters. 

The Grounds This exclusive wedding venue in Cumbria is set within 17 acres of rolling Cumbrian countryside, idyllically positioned on the borders of the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales. Celebrate with friends and family under a gazebo on the front lawn with glasses of Pimms in hand before heading into the barn to tuck into a smoky barbecue feast and eagerly await the speeches to begin.

The Ceremony There is currently no civil ceremony licence in place however there is a registry office in Kendall, just a short drive away. For traditional weddings, the surrounding area boasts some beautiful churches and chapels where a licensed ceremony can be held, including All Saints church in Lupton, St John’s in Hutton Roof and St Mary's church in Kirkby Lonsdale. 

The Reception Tea lights, colourful bunting and festoon lighting will create the most memorable of celebrations within the pared-back barn. For a boho garden vibe, opt for a ceremony on the front lawn decorated with wildflower-filled jam jars and confetti petals sprinkled throughout. The spacious grounds also boast room for a marquee so the reception options at Figtree House are endless.

The Cuisine and Wine Stock the bar with barrels of ale from nearby Kirky Lonsdale brewery, local wine from High Cup and Damson Gin harvested in the Lyth Valley. Source a selection of the finest cheeses to create a wedding cake with a difference and feast upon a buffet of only the finest local produce.

The Entertainment Walk down the aisle to an acoustic version of your favourite song or perhaps a harpist will set the most romantic of scenes. As the festivities move from day to night, a lively folk band will ensure a full dance floor. Finish the evening with an elaborate display of colourful fireworks echoing throughout the valley beyond.
