In fact...

We searched high and low before we found our perfect venue, the Roundthorn. The hotel is the right size to hire it all out for the big day which makes it feel warm and personal. The staff were all friendly and made our day special. The wedding planner is really enthusiastic and made the whole experience even more enjoyable ....

Excellent afternoon tea, the cakes were delicious, we were lucky enough to be able to sit outside on the new decking and furniture which has fabulous views of the fells. Staff very friendly as always. Would recommend to anyone and we will certainly be coming again.
