Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Knockerdown Holiday Cottages, Derbyshire, Peak District, sleeps 2-90 in 42 bedrooms.

Getting married at Knockerdown means you can create a wedding that is truly unique and special to you. You can choose to hold your ceremony outdoors, in the meadow surrounded by far reaching views over rolling hills and open countryside, and we are fully licensed to host civil wedding ceremonies under the specially designed oak framed garden gazebo. The outdoor gazebo includes a walkway providing a wonderful alfresco aisle, guests chairs and registrar table. You can even walk through the avenue of trees, down the meadow and to the gazebo to make for a truly stunning start to your ceremony.

With years of experience, we are super flexible, so no amount of inclement weather will spoil the day, the Brackendale Room has plenty of scope to be turned into a beautiful space for an indoor civil wedding ceremony complete with the all-important aisle. The room can be easily reset and transformed for wedding breakfasts whilst enjoying reception drinks on the private terrace.

On site facilities include an indoor heated swimming pool, sauna, on site massage & treatment room, children’s play area, a communal games area and lots of grounds to explore.

Our sixteen holiday cottages can provide accommodation for up to 93 guests. Each cottage is individually styled with all the facilities you would expect to find in a self catering holiday cottage. Two of the cottages are Dog Friendly so four legged friends can join in the celebrations too.

Our highly experienced team are on hand to offer advice, support, recommend suppliers and local knowledge to help you create the wedding of your dreams. You can appoint a caterer of your choice, choose your own entertainment, decorations, photographer, cake maker, and bring in your own drinks (no corkage charge from us!) We can offer as much support as you need or if you are wanting a more laid back affair, with the freedom to enjoy the ‘do it yourself’ option, we can step back and let you enjoy the site.
