All About Us
Nestled in the heart of the Lake District countryside, Robin Hood Farm is an ideal wedding venue for couples who want a bespoke outdoor wedding experience with one of the best views the Lake District has to offer. You will be surrounded by stunning natural beauty, with uninhibited seclusion and uninterrupted views of Skiddaw, Bassenthwaite Lake and surrounding fells. You will be able to erect a spacious marquee or tipi for your celebrations which can be customised to your own festival style wedding. This beautiful view has been enjoyed by our family for over 70 years and we are proud to share it with you on your wedding day to create truly magical memories and impressive photograph opportunities.
Your Wedding Your Way
Are you looking to hold a festival wedding at a venue where your guests will be able to camp under the stars? Come to Robin Hood in Bassenthwaite where you can enjoy exclusive access to our 13 acre field for as little as £1500. Create a true DIY wedding where you call all the shots, this truly is a blank canvas with the most incredible views! Within a mile of the site are two picturesque churches to choose from: St John's and St Begas. This location really has everything you need to create the perfect wedding day.
Explore the many ways we can help you make your wedding one to remember. As the field is exclusively yours we encourage you to make the most of it from lighting the campfire to pitching tents. For those of you that don’t have your own tents, some of our hand-picked Tipi-Companies and Friends can supply beautifully furnished bell tents, tipis, yurts and glamping tents alongside your wedding tipi package.
We look forward to welcoming you and your unlimited guests at Robin Hood Farm near Keswick.
How to book
Step 1: Arrange a viewing
- you will be blown away by just how pretty it is in person. Get in contact with us at the bottom of the page.
Step 2: Reserve your date

This gives you full access to the field for a couple of days either side of your wedding date. For example, if your wedding is on the Saturday you would have exclusive access from Thursday to Monday to give yourself and your tipi company time to set up and tidy away.
Step 3: Arrange a wedding package with one of our partner Tipi-companies and friends
- this can be as simple as just the tipi or marquee itself, or everything from generator hire, entertainment, photographers and recommended caterers.
