Cumberland Lodge is a Grade II* listed, 17th century former royal residence set in extensive grounds in the heart of Windsor Great Park and steeped in the nation's history. It is available to book for wedding receptions and celebrations of all sizes, with exclusive use of the house and grounds available on selected dates.

** We are currently open for boutique wedding receptions for up to 30 people, in line with Government guidance, and welcome enquiries about receptions of all sizes, for summer 2021 and beyond. Short-notice bookings can often be accommodated. **

The house has been home to kings, dukes, princes and princesses, lords and ladies, and has a long association with the title of Ranger of the Great Park. It has also featured in films such as The King's Speech, starring Colin Firth. It is lovingly run as a country home rather than a hotel. We pride ourselves on a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere, where special things happen and nothing is too much trouble.

We offer flexible spaces, with seating for up to 90 guests (at full capacity) in our wood-panelled dining rooms for larger receptions and celebrations, and a choice of elegant reception rooms and 56 individually styled, en-suite guest bedrooms. For smaller weddings, we can seat up to 30 in the historic Prince Christian Dining Room, or up to 16 in our light and airy Princess Helena Room.

We make every effort to ensure that your special day is an occasion to treasure. We work with you from start to finish to get all the details right, from guidance on menu selection and dining options from Robert, our long-standing Head Chef, to the professional guidance of our experienced wedding co-ordinators.
