Anne and Robin Hepburn (April 2012)

We went to Winder Hall on a recommendation as we had never heard of it and were completely won over from our first visit. We booked it for our wedding the next day without even looking anywhere else. Nick and his team are absolutely excellent and went out of their way to create our dream wedding. Nothing is too much trouble for them while they created a truly relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere. The accommodation was ideal for us and the food was fantastic. Whether you are planning a wedding or just a couple of nights in the lakes you will struggle to find a more lovely place. We both hope that you will give it a try and enjoy it as much as we have.

Nick, Kate and the staff are pretty much what makes this an amazing place to stay. Not that Winder Hall and its stunning views are anything less of a pull. Our ceremony took place in the dining room with 30 family and very close friends, roaring log fire and a stunning bride to complete the look. Followed by the most delicious hot mulled wine which was commented on by all who consumed it.

Winder Hall is a place we love, we have had sunday lunch,  taken our parents for afternoon tea -yummy! When we open that door it strangely feels like were walking into a warm friendly home. If you’re used to hotels etc where staff tend to be regimental and stuffy, you won’t get that here – they will treat you as a close friend, nothing being too much trouble for them, and as long as you feel relaxed and happy that is their aim. To sum it up, we are in love with Winder Hall, so much so we have already booked a full weekend for our first wedding anniversary.  All we can say is try it for yourselves. If it’s warm, friendly staff and surroundings, stunning food, amazing views then this is the place to book.

We are so pleased with how everything went and appreciate all that things that you did for us , despite all your claim, were  over and above your call of duty.

You hosted our wedding recently, and we wanted to write and express our sincere gratitude for all you did in helping to make our day so special. From the first contact, we felt like you understood exactly what we wanted, and you made the whole process enjoyable and stress free. We booked our wedding without having seen the Hall, and when we finally managed to visit you a mere 6 weeks before the ‘big day’, we were delighted to find that our expectations were exceeded by both the place and the people.On the wedding day itself, Alison worked extremely hard to ensure everything ran like clockwork. She was fantastic.

Gemma and David (September 2011)

Thank you to Nick and all the staff at Winder Hall for making our ‘Dream Wedding’ a ‘Perfect Wedding’. Nothing was too much trouble, we hired Winder Hall for the weekend so we had total exclusivity for our family and guests. Our close family and wedding party arrived on Friday afternoon, everyone was made so welcome, we all had dinner together, on Saturday the staff pampered to our every whim. We got married in a little church in Buttermere, which is small and unique, had photos taken by the lake. The reception was exceptional the guests loved the food, and the fact that they could choose from an excellent menu. We then partied on into the night. We had everything we wished for in our wedding thanks to Nick and the staff at Winder hall, we cannot praise them highly enough, Nick is a great bloke and we would highly recommend to anyone to have their wedding at Winder Hall, it is a fantastic experience.

Love Pam & Derek Hawkins (July 2011)

Dear Suzanne,

Thank you and everyone at Winder Hall for making sure we were so well look after on our wedding day. I have no idea how you managed to make us feel so relaxed and welcomed – we were able to have a truly wonderful day, and I forgot all about being stressed because I was enjoying myself too much! The food, the setting, the atmosphere and most of all the welcome have given us memories to treasure.

Suzanne, we appreciate all your help in getting the planning right – it paid off so well in the end.

“Dear Nick &Suzanne,

“Dear Nick,

You are well aware that you have a very special and unique place at Winder Hall; but in the end, it is the people who staff a wedding that determine its success. You have exceptional staff, of the absolute highest order.

Would you be kind enough to convey our heart felt thanks to all your staff at Winder Hall; we had a very special time at the weekend, made truly perfect by your staff. They all deserve praise, but I would like to add a further note about Suzanne and Helen.

Suzanne was wonderful throughout the whole process, from day one several weeks ago to the final moments of the weekend. She made Jacqueline and Andrew feel welcome and completely relaxed at all times. She has a very special talent with people and her organisational skills are outstanding. Without her the whole wedding would have been far more stressful and we cannot thank her enough.

For Helen, we cannot find the words to describe the amount of praise she deserves. She is quite clearly one of the finest chefs you could wish for, but she is more than that, because she has a warmth in her smile and a calmness under pressure which is truly remarkable. We have had a restaurant, and we know what kitchens are commonly like. Helen shines like a glowing beacon of talent; you are truly fortunate to work with her.

With our very kindest regards – Paul and Nicky Rathbone

“Dear Nick,

Now that the dust is settling on the wedding and life is setting back to normal, I wanted to write to say thank you for all you and your staff did to make Clare and Adam’s wedding such a wonderful and happy occasion for everyone.

We had two rather different events, the small family gathering on the Thursday at Winder Hall and the larger party at Foulsyke on the Saturday: both were very special and I want to thank you, Suzanne and everyone at Winder Hall for all you did to make it such a memorable occasion.

With best wishes,”
