Mount Cook Weddings 

Overlooked by the dramatic face of Black Rocks and surrounded by beautiful countryside, our eco-friendly Centre is an ideal wedding venue for all lovers of the great outdoors! 

Our impressive glass-fronted main Dining Hall has capacity for up to 200 guests, offering full catering, a licensed bar and a speaker system available for the use of our guests. We take a flexible approach when catering for your big day! Simply let us know what food you have in mind, and we will endeavor to serve your desired menu. External caterers serving hog roasts or specialty dishes are also welcome.

We have accommodation available for up to 140 guests within our Centre, with the majority of bedrooms sleeping 4 guests in bunk beds, all with en suite bathroom facilities. Outside, we offer unique accommodation for a further 40 guests in our new wooden Glamping Pods. Our Pods also sleep up to four guests in bunk bed accommodation, with an en suite toilet and wash basin. For those who like to sleep under the stars, camping is available on our secure paddock, with tents and camping equipment available to hire if required.

Why not book some of our exciting outdoor activities for you and your guests to enjoy? We offer a range of activity sessions from high-ropes, archery, bush craft and den building, orienteering, to team challenges. The majority of our activities are suitable for children aged 6+, and we require a minimum of 8 people per activity session. Let us know if you would like to include some activities, and we will integrate the sessions into your weekend.

Our external site offers 5 acres of land, including 3 flat activity fields suitable for gazebos, a designated campfire pit, a forested area and an area of special scientific interest!

We booked Mount Cook for our wedding at the end of October 2016. It’s lovely looking, newly built eco-centre in the beautiful south east of the Peak District with a light yet intimate event space, and importantly, it had the capacity to sleep almost our of all guests on-site. We fell in love with it straight away and it was the only place we saw that enabled us to have everyone stay at the venue, without booking a hotel (which was too formal for our outdoorsy-styled wedding).

Mandy, Matt, Toria and the team were absolutely fantastic throughout our experience of booking, planning and pulling off the wedding. They were so enthusiastic, flexible and supportive and, even though we were their first wedding, everything went absolutely to plan on the day - nothing was too trouble. Many of our guests remarked how lovely and efficient the team was, and how much they became an integral part of the day.

The accommodation, although bunk bed-based (which many of both our friends with families, and couples enjoyed - although there were some arguments as to who would get the top bunk) was warm, spotlessly clean and each room had an ensuite bathroom. The Centre Manager Matt is also a great cook and catered a large part of wedding as well as dinner the night before and breakfast the morning after, so we were very well fed. Our guests also commented on how well situated the Centre was for short walks or runs from the door along the High Peak trail, or to visit nearby Wirksworth as many came early or stayed late and made a weekend of it.

In short, we absolutely couldn’t recommend Mount Cook highly enough for a great place to stay, or from our experience, a wonderful place to tie the knot - thanks guys!
