Wild and romantic Peak District outdoor venue with marquee space for wedding parties for up to 90 guests

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
The Gathering, Edale, Derbyshire, Peak District, sleeps 2-34 in 16 bedrooms.

The outdoor-lovers' wedding venue. This is for couples who appreciate the glow of friends and family united for a long weekend of outdoor partying.

Park the cars and forget about your wheels for the next 3 nights. Spread your guests around The Gathering itself (4 bedrooms in the shooting lodge, 12 in the tented lodges - beds for 32), in the village down the track (2 pubs with rooms, some large self-catering homes, numerous B&Bs - beds for 100+), or hire in a 'Bell Tent village' for the weekend from our local festival supplier.

The Gathering is centred on the stunning gritstone shooting lodge, built by the owner's great great grandfather in 1881. A large party room, dining room in the old stable stalls, two bars and kids activity room with external heated marquee linked to the party rooms. Integrated music system throughout, with seated dining for 64 or finger food for up to 90. Or hire in a marquee for one of the best views in Peak District: the Iron Age fort of Mam Tor to your south, the heather-topped crags of Kinder Scout to your north.

Do the wedding thing, but also take a gamekeeper tour of the hills above, swim in the waterfalls up the brook, settle down to wood-fired pizzas around a huge bonfire, get the telescopes out in this dark sky zone.

The tented lodges enable you to provide family group units that are all within 80 yards of the shooting lodge, so they can join in the festivities at will but have their own private space, or group together to make a supervised creche for younger children while the adults party into the night. They are enormous fun, with wood-fired stoves for heating, cooking and hot water, and outside verandahs to catch the sundown. They are also extremely comfortable, with British Hypnos mattresses, Egyptian cotton linen and Yorkshire merino wool blankets and throws. Add the jacketed hot water bottles and the gentle rushing of the mountain stream, and you have guaranteed deep sleeps once the music is done.
