Lake District Civil Weddings at The Knoll Country House

We are fully licensed at the Knoll for civil partnerships and weddings.

For winter events, we can cater for up to 18 people – perfect for that cosy, intimate event that your guests will be sure to remember! For summer events, we can cater for up to 50 people with an outdoor theme offering a marquee and a very flexible appraoch to your special event.

We don’t do a wedding package as such as we have found over the years that couples want flexibility to have a truly unique experience.

We are a gay friendly venue and having a licence to hold civil weddings means that the Knoll is the perfect place for small, intimate civil partnerships or weddings. We can provide a tailored package to suit your needs so call us for a chat to see what we can do for you!

Some examples of events we have hosted include a canape and champgane reception after the ceremony followed by a cruise on the Lake; a summer BBQ in the evening after the formalities; a picnic at High Dam for smaller, more intimate events. The options are endless!! Call us to discuss your forthcoming event and we’ll promise to make it a day to remember!

We closed our doors here at The Knoll finally on 7th December 2021 and said goodbye to this cherished home.  

It has been a place of love, laughter and sanctuary and I have been privileged to have been its custodian for almost 21 years - a third of my life.  It’s been incredibly hard to let go as it has been more than a job and more than a home. Thank you for supporting it and me through either being amazing guests or treasured friends - in many cases both.  I particularly want to thank my wonderful team  - Cheryl Munster, Karen Robb Bellman, Helen Snowball-Brand, Ali Deeley.   But of course, The Knoll would be nothing without my fabulous sister Denise Hyde and my truly incredible partner Mosy Mac.  I’m so proud of what we did here.  The love and genuine care we afforded every single person who walked through our doors over the years has been what made us special. We have offered a port in a storm for some, a place to enjoy the Lakes for others and in the middle of this, a home for me and my nearest and dearest.  This beautiful building has been handed on with love to its lovely new family.  

We wish you all well in the future and again, thank you for supporting this wonderful place.  Should you want to keep in touch,  we still have the Knoll email address.

Warmest wishes and love always,
