New House Farm is a Grade II listed luxury country guest house and wedding venue, dating back to 1650 and set within fifteen acres of open fields, woods, streams and ponds, surrounded by stunning views of the Lakeland Fells.
Located in the stunning Lorton Vale between the picturesque villages of Buttermere and Lorton, our guest house offers the perfect base to explore the Lake District, renowned for its breath-taking scenery, wildlife, history and culture.
The adjoining Hayloft barn offers a beautiful rustic wedding venue for couples looking to tie the knot in a romantic, intimate setting. It is also perfect for other functions such as birthday parties, christenings and more.
Incredible panoramic views and an original Lakeland barn make New House Farm the perfect location to host your special day. The Hayloft has been lovingly restored to the highest standards and combines rustic chic with modern facilities. It can cater for up to 130 people with the added benefit of having its own professional kitchen.
The Hayloft is a bright and airy venue with beautiful oak beams and original stone walls. Our venue gives you the freedom to create your own style, unrestricted by inflexible layouts or colour schemes. It is a blank canvas to which you can add all the personal touches and little details that will make your wedding unique!
The landscape surrounding our venue looks incredible all year round and provides a magical setting for your wedding celebrations. The Lake District offers some of the most beautiful and scenic views in the country, so you be certain that your wedding photographs will look spectacular.
New House Farm is available for exclusive use and all of our luxury onsite accommodation can be reserved for your special day. Should you require additional accommodation, Scale Hill has 6 self-catering cottages and is just 1.5 miles away from New House Farm.
You can be assured of a warm and friendly welcome combined with luxurious rooms and peaceful surroundings during your stay at New House Farm. We offer a unique selection of bedrooms, all of which have been traditionally styled to complement the building, its history and its architecture.
We serve a hearty cooked breakfast every morning to set you up for the day ahead and the opening fire will be crackling on cooler days. If you’re looking for somewhere to explore, the market towns of Cockermouth and Keswick are both nearby, home to a fantastic array of cafes, restaurants, shops and attractions.
We’re sorry to announce that the Tea Room will be closed on Saturdays and Tuesdays throughout the summer months – this is due to a large number of bookings for Saturday and mid-week weddings over the summer. We apologise for any inconvenience.
Our tearooms are situated in the original cow byres on the ground floor of a traditional Lakeland Bank Barn, circa 1886. The huge fire in the corner provides the perfect place to get warmed up after a fresh springtime stroll through the Lakes and we have outdoor seating for sunny days.
We serve a wide selection of afternoon teas, delicious sandwiches and paninis, salads and light lunches. You can also enjoy a variety of sweet treats including freshly baked cakes, indulgent English Lakes Ice Cream and home-made puds.
Please note our tearoom is seasonal, open from around mid-March and closing annually at the end of October.
Please note that the Tea Room closes when we are hosting a private function during the week, so we recommend giving us a call before you drop in to avoid disappointment! You can contact Hazel on: 07841 159 818
