Say 'I Do' on the shores of picture-perfect Lake Windermere at our Award Winning Wedding Venue!

Few places are more romantic than the Lake District. Steeped in natural beauty, its majestic mountains, wild-grass moors and shimmering lakes make this iconic part of the world a wonderful setting for a truly memorable day.

Located on the edge of Lake Windermere, The Belsfield Hotel is a fine example of Victorian Italianite architecture. Delivering mesmerising panoramic views over an area of natural outstanding beauty, it's the perfect place to capture those all-important photos or enjoy a canape or two with guests. Venture inside and you'll discover the elegance of Laura Ashley. Each room showcases the signature style of this much-loved fashion and interiors brand, famed for its muted palette and timeless prints, right down to the carefully-chosen soft furnishings.

From the moment you and your guests enter The Belsfield's striking all-glass reception with that view of Lake Windermere, to the time you sit down and enjoy a delicious menu you've selected, you will be swept away by the romance and attention to detail that's so prevalent in a Laura Ashley hotel. And that's before finally retiring to one of the 62 glamorous bedrooms which include designer suites, 4-poster beds and roll-top baths. Bliss.

"Attended our friend’s wedding here, absolutely fantastic from start to finish. The hotel is stunning, so much attention to every detail.

Lovely staff throughout the day and night with good service at the bar and reasonable drinks prices which is always a bonus.

The food was fantastic, delicious canapes and then the most wonderful wedding breakfast. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the food. The service was superb from the waiting on staff.

Great location and views from the hotel, walking distance to the pier for the boats, gardens really well maintained.

The wedding party were delighted with their whole day.

We didn't stay at the hotel but would certainly return and possibly stay over next time.

Thank you for a perfect day, we would highly recommend"

"My wife and I were married here in the summer (July 2019), we had the most breath-taking wedding here, what an amazing venue. We also could not recommend the wedding team here at the Belsfield enough, they were a dream right from the first meeting we had a year in advance. Victoria, Heather and Nicola were awesome at making sure our day went amazingly smoothly!"
Scott and Katie


"All staff were so friendly and could not do enough to please. Every single guest came to us to say how beautiful the food and venue were. Heather, Victoria and Nicola in the wedding team are the calmest and friendliest people you could dream of. They certainly aim to please! My 6 year old nephew has already said he enjoyed the hotel so much he wants to come back for his wedding"
Amy Vesty


"We both wanted to say thank you for everything that you all did for us for the wedding, everything was perfect, nothing was too much trouble and we were looked after beautifully from the moment we arrived until we left."
Mark and Justine


"We can't thank everyone at The Belsfield enough for helping us to have our perfect wedding day. The hotel is beautiful, the service is excellent, the food was great, and the view is the best ever! All of our guests keep talking about how much they enjoyed our wedding. Thank you so much for all your hard work and creating our dream day! Louise & Graeme xx"
