News: Venue for Wedding Ceremonies

18 January 2013 / News / Wedding

We’re very excited to announce we’ve just been formally approved as venue for Wedding Ceremonies & Civil Partnerships – Yay!

We’ve just received the great news from Cumbria County Council, Registration and Coroner Services that Thorney How Independent Hostel has been approved as a:

“Venue for Marriages in Pursuance of Section 26(1)(bb) of The Marriage Act 1949 and as a Venue for Civil Partnership in Pursuance of Section 6(3A)(a) of The Civil Partnership Act 2004”


We’re one of a very few alternative accommodation providers and destinations in Cumbria that can also hold a wedding ceremony on site. So if you’re looking for something a little different and maybe on a smaller budget we’re here to help.

Our very first wedding is scheduled for April 2013 and we have a number of key weekend dates still available during 2013. We’ll be putting a new wedding package together very soon, just give us a call anytime for an informal chat. Ask for Taylor or Carolyn.

No Film Screening This Week / Jubilee

31 May 2012 / Events / Film

Due to an extra special booking this weekend and the additional Jubilee local events, we will not be screening a film over this coming weekend.

Watch out for our full summer screening programme available here soon.

With a full house here for a local wedding ceremony we felt that a general film screening would not work.

There are also lots of Jubilee celebrations happening locally – see Grasmere Village Diamond Jubilee Celebrations…

Our plan is to resume our Saturday night screenings with a full programme until the end of September.
