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.
