Non-contracted bedrooms: A discount of £20.00 per hotel bedroom is available off of the best available rate at the time of booking. This is available to any of your guests wishing to stay at Raithwaite Estate on your wedding night. Guests can either choose a flexible room rate with payment due on their departure, or, an advance purchase rate which is pre-payable in full at the time of booking. Guests will also have the option of choosing a room only rate or a bed and breakfast rate. Hotel accommodation will be available to reserve one year prior to your wedding date.

To obtain this rate guests must contact the hotel reservations department directly by calling 01947 661661 or emailing and advise us they are attending your wedding, giving the Bride and Groom’s surname, along with the date of the wedding.
