Lower Damgate Farm Cottages and Wedding Venue

We at Lower Damgate Farm are very relaxed with a philosophy that nothing is a problem. We offer you a blank canvass in which to pursue your own dream wedding with complete exclusivity in a stunning setting within the Peak District National Park. We have 20 acres of grounds and a beautiful wedding barn that can easily seat 70 to over 160 guests for dining, buffet’s or barn dances etc. Accommodation is included on site in our Visit Britain four star cottages sleeping up to 28/9 guests (plus cots). Carolyn’s Barn is very different, though it is still a “farm barn” and because it is big we don’t have a need to for Marquees etc, though we do have space for these if you would like to include them with the barn . Views from the property are wonderful and make a perfect if unusual setting for photography.

Hire is on an “all inclusive package” (accommodation, venue, barn and equipment). We let you decorate and plan your own DIY wedding, with the flexibility of using your own suppliers and I am always happy to help if you need me. Hire is for a long weekend Friday to Monday or mid week Monday to Friday, or even a week. Friday to Friday.
It is important for us that our venue is, right for you¯ and we welcome a sight visit before booking. The ambience of the property speaks for itself.

Outside space: We have 20 acres of ground that we are happy to let our guests explore .....you may have to share a few fields with our rescued animals but if you carry an apple in your pockets they might let you feed them! Accommodation: Yes
Bridal suite: Yes Parking: Though we have lots of space, the price for living in the Peak Park means we can only have a limited number of cars on site. Our local transport company ferries guests to and from other local accommodation and in our experience this makes for easier and more fun for guests.

We are a very peaceful and relaxed venue, with one or two quirky rules for being in the PeakDistrict National Park. Sadly we are restricted with parking ,though we do have enough space for lots of cars we are restricted to 20 on site, this includes those staying at the farm. As most guests tend to stay within the local vicinity there is an option to use our local transport company in Ilam, they can ferry guests to and from there accommodation; to the church, or to us, and back again! In our experience this makes it easier, safer and more fun for guests.

The other thing we are restricted upon is noise, Music carries far into these hills and though our barn is enclosed, on a still night you may hear it for miles around, so if you are looking for a loud, heavy rave type event we are not for you. Subtlety is our menu and though we welcome a number of live bands and groups in the barn we still have to be careful with noise as it really does carry. If you would like a wedding that is a completely different experience, relaxed , happy and completely your own thing! (within reason!) and maybe a few goats, ponies and alpacas in your photographs then maybe we are for you! Otherwise I wish you a wonderful day wherever you go.
