Wedding Styling in Rutland Arms Hotel

About the Venue

At the heart of the Peak District National Park nestles Bakewell and at the heart of Bakewell is the Rutland Arms Hotel. The Duke of Rutland built the hotel on the original site of the White Horse Inn in 1804, after the Inn was demolished following a fire in 1796. In the year 1811 while revising the novel “Pride and Prejudice” Jane Austen stayed at the hotel where she engraved on the glass which can still be seen today. Dedicated to the novelist we have the Jane Austen room, now the bridal suite, overlooking the beautiful Bath Gardens which in the summer is a riot of colour and fragrance. The Rutland Arms carries a civil wedding licence and has two beautiful rooms in which your wedding can be held. We can cater for the small intimate groups up to larger groups of 100 people. The hotel offers a unique character which will suit you and your guests needs on your special day. It is the perfect setting and backdrop for a memorable day providing impeccable service and fine cuisine that is expected.
