Boasting one of the largest function rooms in West Cumbria, with a seating capacity up for to 300 people, the Seacote Hotel is ideal for weddings. The function room can be used as one large room or partitioned off into three rooms for smaller or more intimate events. The room has its own bar and we can provide both multi course wedding breakfasts or buffet meals on request.

A Beautiful Backdrop

St. Bees iconic headland makes it a perfect place for capturing unique wedding photos. The sea has always had the ability to stir emotions and if you’ve ever dreamed of having the crashing waves as a backdrop to your wedding day, the Seacote Hotel will be the perfect choice.


“The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.” –
Jacques Cousteau



We hold a license to perform civil ceremonies at the Seacote in our Headland’s Restaurant and our Wedding Co-ordinator will ensure your special day is really ‘yours’. We create menus based on our couple’s requirements, and work with customers to make your wedding day a wonderful day to remember.  Sue will be happy to provide sample menus and guide prices upon initial enquiry.

St. Bees Priory, just a short distance away, is a popular choice for church ceremonies. We offer flexible timings for your wedding breakfast or buffet to suite your ceremony needs. Whether you would like a more traditional day, or something more unusual.
