Outdoor Blessings

An outdoor ceremony in perfect harmony

Outdoor ceremonies* at Abbey House Hotel & Gardens can truly add another dimension to your special day. Abbey House enjoys 14 acres of manicured grounds all set within our private walled surround. Slightly further afield at the end of our ground lies the magnificent Furness Abbey in the ‘Vale of Nightshade’. Dating from 1123, Furness Abbey was once the second most highly regarded Cistercian monastery in the country. Now the ruins are protected by English Heritage where Abbey House Hotel & Gardens have the privilege of offering a truly magnificent and unique setting for your ceremony**.
