To say our day was special is an understatement. The setting is idyllic and tranquil and the staff at Macdonald Leeming House ensured our day went flawlessly. My guests were impressed with the service and attention by the staff and the meal was cooked and served to perfection.

We remember feeling uninspired with the venues we had been to visit, but that all changed when we came to Macdonald Leeming House. Immediately all our questions were answered and we were struck by the freedom of choice we had. There was no "we can't do that" but more " what would you like" and we will never forget that.

Walking down the aisle in that beautiful room in that beautiful setting.........unforgettable, it really was.

We have had really good feedback from the guests who are still going on about it now and many of them have said it was the best wedding they had ever been to with some of them adding "including their own". Much of this is down to yourself Karen and the staff at Macdonald Leeming House who made them all feel welcome and gave them great food and service. The location and views also contributed and many of them are vowing to return and have a better look around the area.

From the sun rising surprisingly over the hillside on the morning of our wedding day, to the spectacular fireworks set against the Ullswater night sky, what an amazing day we had.  Macdonald Leeming House, both venue and personnel, surpassed all our expectations for a truly memorable day in such idyllic surroundings. The day could only last 24 hours but we will cherish the memories forever.

From our very first visit we fell in love with the hotel, it has character, class and elegance. However, above all of this it is the staff that make Macdonald Leeming House so very special. Karen and Michelle were brilliant throughout the planning and on the big day, all the staff made a special effort with us and our guests.
