Two Fabulous Competitions

Win a two-night stay in the heart of The Lakes


Win a two-night stay in the heart of The Lakes

The Wild Boar Inn is set adjacent to 72 acres of beautiful woodland with its own tarn and some beautiful wild settings. A traditional Lakeland inn with oak beams, log fires, an in-house microbrewery and smokehouse all in the rolling countryside of the Gilpin Valley.

For the discerning foodie, when it comes to food there's an extensive choice: from sharing plates to succulent steaks, traditional British to Mediterranean, its Alternative Afternoon Tea and Wild Afternoon Tea Picnic – there's certainly something for everyone!

One of the best things on offer is... choice! There are indoor-outdoor options of where to exchange vows, home-brewed beer and a library of single malt whiskies, outdoor activities in its stunning woodland, as well as a choice of individually designed rooms and suites for the couple and their wedding party. Nearlyweds can also choose: a Lake District Falconry Hawk Walk in the woods – perfect for stunning photographs – Clay Pigeon Shooting, Archery or even Axe Throwing on the day!

For those who want to embrace the outdoors completely, why not opt for a tipi wedding? From the first enquiry, the dedicated wedding coordinator will ensure that you have all the information needed to create a dream day. After a show round of the inn, grounds and woodland you'll be offered support right up to the wedding and beyond. The team are happy to introduce to you to a great selection of local wedding suppliers hand-picked for their quality and expertise.

When it comes to the all-important wedding breakfast, with the aforementioned culinary options on offer, the chef is also happy to discuss your bespoke ideas. The Wild Boar can comfortably accommodate between 70 to 90 guests for the wedding breakfast, and between 70 to 130 guests for the evening buffet.

Creating the picture-perfect backdrop for a stunning wedding album is easy here both within the inn and in the beautiful woodland. Some of the most popular shots are beside the secluded tarn in the woods, or surrounded by a variety of trees – or for fun photographs head to the shooting range! The venue's Wild Boar Land Rover also features in quite a lot in images as couples are driven to their chosen backdrop.

LOCATION: The Wild Boar is located close to Bowness-on-Windermere, in the south of the Lake District. Situated next to the B5284, part way between Windermere Golf Club and the small Lake District hamlet of Crook. The hotel has parking to the rear, next to the inn's own private woodland.
