Wedding Reception Venue

Askham Hall

Askham Hall

Details

Askham Hall and Bank Barn, an exciting new style of country house hotel and wedding venue for Cumbria and the Lake District. Recently opened with 15 bedrooms, a restaurant, private gardens, spa, wedding barn, medieval hall and outdoor pavilion. It's style? Luxurious, intimate, unpretentious, up-to-date and full of charm. There are also two stunning churches nearby.

A beautiful Grade II listed building 'Bank Barn' has been sympathetically converted into a first class wedding venue with capacity for approximately 150 seated guests. Original features such as bare stone walls and an open beamed oak ceiling, together with contemporary lighting, stylish décor and large glass doors, make it a truly unique setting for your wedding reception all year round.

A variety of catering options are available, utilising locally sourced produce, grown and reared at Askham Hall itself and on the family estate. Tables, chairs, linen, crockery, cutlery and glasses are provided.

You may decorate the venue as you wish. A variety of florists, hair and make-up stylists, dressmakers, photographers, cake makers, music bands and other services can be recommended.

We are licensed for civil ceremonies, both in the barn for larger parties at weekends, in the main house for smaller parties, as well as the outdoor pavilion (weather permitting) and medieval hall.

St. Peters Church, Askham is located a stone's throw from the venue. A romantic walk takes you from the church through the gardens and onto the wedding barn. Thirteenth century St. Michael's Church with its strong family connections, overlooking Askham Hall, the River Lowther and with views of Lowther Castle, is also close by.
