This recently renovated Georgian manor on the edge of Lake Windermere is not only a gorgeous spot but a green one too.

THE BEST WEEKEND WEDDING VENUES

Heating powered by a woodchip boiler, a hydro-turbine for electricity and a rainwater supply will ease your eco-conscience. You won't have to guilt-trip yourself over the guest list, either - the main house sleeps 18 and there are 20 self-catering cottages on the surrounding Graythwaite estate.
