Exclusive Use

Weddings for up to 200 people marquee style

Taking this option allows you to hire your very own country house hotel, enabling complete freedom and flexibility with your timing, and allowing for an enchanting ‘house party’ feeling.

You will have sole use of the hotel and its surrounding 14 acres (5.7 hectares) from 12h30 on the day of the exclusive use booking until 11h00 on the day of departure. We do not take any other booking or visitors in our grounds, so you are guaranteed your very own exclusive use country house hotel for your wedding.


  • Complimentary wedding tasting menu for four
  • Complimentary bridal suite for the eve of your wedding
  • Stunning intimate ceremony room – Charged as extra
  • Canapés and four-course wedding breakfast for 72 people
  • Complimentary evening food for 72 people
  • Accommodation for 72 people
  • Full English buffet breakfast for 72 people

As the Exclusive Use rate covers accommodation, you may want to consider asking your guests to contribute towards the cost of their accommodation in order to make Exclusive Use hire a viable option. In our experience, we find that guests are more than happy to finance their own hotel bill, especially if it enables the bride and groom to stage their dream wedding in the perfect setting.


We are licensed for both civil ceremonies and civil partnerships and these can take place in either our stunning Billiard room which overlooks the extensive gardens of Linthwaite or for smaller ceremonies in our Boardroom.


The ceremony will be conducted by our local Registrars, who must be contacted directly by the bride and groom before confirming dates and times here at Linthwaite. (The civil ceremony usually lasts no more than 30 minutes).

Sue Oliver, the Superintendent Registrar for Kendal can be contacted on +44 0300 303 2472. All arrangements should be made directly with the Registrar and all registrar fees are payable directly to them.


Taking the hotel exclusively means you and your guests can enjoy all 36 individually designed bedrooms.

For the bride, why not spend your final night as a single woman in our luxurious Loft Suite, while we keep your groom tucked up somewhere else in the hotel – just for the one night! And be joined by him on your wedding night…


We have a dedicated on-site wedding co-ordinator to assist you with the planning of your perfect wedding day. If you require any further information or would like to arrange a showround at the hotel then please feel free to contact our wedding co-ordinator at or call 015394 88600
