Broad Leys has been the chosen venue for many weddings over the years. With its unique style, and being the only Voysey house available to hire exclusively for your own use, this makes it the perfect venue for your special day.
Great pride is taken in building the wedding package around your needs and requirements, should that be a vintage afternoon tea or a traditional three course meal. We can cater to your individual style. Our experienced manager and her team will be happy to assist you and guide you in all aspects of organising your day and will offer menus and a choice of wines to suit your tastes. Private tastings are available prior to making your final decision and you can request to see seating plans to make the most of the rooms within Broad Leys.
There are two main rooms available; the hall and the dining room with lake views for civil ceremonies. The bar is also available to use and has access to the front terrace where there are tables and chairs for extended seating after the ceremony.
The hall can seat up to fifty and the dining room can seat forty for your wedding breakfast and reception. The house has a lawn adjacent to it that can accommodate up to 150 guests in a marquee. This can be accessed via the bar down stone steps within a covered passage. The terrace also offers guests unrivalled views of the lake and fells beyond as they enjoy a drink on arrival.
The house has six bedrooms in total; three en suite and three sharing bathrooms located along the corridor. There are also plenty of other local venues very nearby for other guests wishing to stay the night.
The beautiful gardens overlooking the lake are a photographer's dream and access to the lake means that there is also the possibility of you and your guests enjoying a lake cruise following the ceremony.
There is Wifi available within Broad Leys and a variety of children's outdoor games on the croquet lawn as well as a large sandpit down on the foreshore. (Parents of any children using the sandpit must take full responsibility for their children.)
The Booker Room is a small room available for use as a quiet area or once again for the younger guests to use.
Please contact the club to make an appointment for a private consultation with the manageress.
