INTRODUCTION


Cumbria Tourism's Wedding Venue of the Year 2022 and Visit England’s Gold Winner of Small Hotel of Year 2023! Located just a few miles from Penrith, England, Askham Hall and Bank Barn provides the modern country house and barn wedding venue combo you’ve been looking for. Situated along the edge of the beautiful Lake District National Park in Cumbria, the venue is suitable for celebrations of all sizes and styles. It offers a luxurious, intimate and relaxed place in which to say “I do”. Askham Hall is licensed for civil ceremonies in the Grade II listed barn, the 16th century Medieval Hall and the Grade I listed manor house. If the weather is on your side, the gardens are also available for tying the knot. For a traditional ceremony, St. Peters Church and St. Michael’s Church are just a short distance away. Within the venue's grounds, the Bank Barn has been beautifully restored to welcome you and your loved ones. It boasts original features, such as bare stone walls -

and a beamed oak ceiling, mixed with contemporary décor. Seating up to 150 guests, it is a fantastic setting for a wedding in every season. The cosier 16th century Medieval Hall is perfect for minimonies seating up to 70, or for a more intimate wedding, 30 guests ‘in-house’. The hotel offers exclusive use for couples, and they ask that you spend a minimum of two nights if you are holding your nuptials here, taking a minimum of 9 rooms the night before the wedding and at least 15 rooms the night of your wedding. This means that you will have the day beforehand to set up your wedding perfectly, with the help of the dedicated events team. 19 luxurious bedrooms will be at your disposal at Askham Hall. There are another 6 bedrooms at the venue’s sister property, The Queen’s Head, a charming inn located in the village of Askham. George and Dragon inn, only a 5-minute drive away, can also form part of your accommodation, offering 11 newly refurbished opulent bedrooms; all of which are dog friendly.

SPACE TO ENTERTAIN

 

Expose the rustic charm of the lovingly restored Bank Barn, converted into a superior wedding space, holding up to 150 seated guests and up to 200 guests for the evening.

With large glass doors, wooden features and a canopy of a thousand fairy lights hanging from stunning oak beams overhead, couples will get lost in this romantic space before unwinding in one of Askham Hall’s beautifully designed rooms when the celebrations come to an end.

Searching for something a little more intimate? Then why not opt for a smaller space holding anywhere between 2 to 30 seated guests - explore the hidden treasures of the Garden Pavilion or take a trip to the beautiful Medieval Hall, dating back to the 1500s with many original features still intact.

KIND WORDS


“Our wedding day was the most special day and everyone was absolutely amazing. You have truly gone above and beyond for us and we really cannot thank you enough. Everyone loved their time staying here in this beautiful house and everything was just perfect.” - Nick and Alex

“We had the most brilliant day and so did our guests. Everything went so perfectly and we couldn't have done it without your meticulous planning. The day was better than either of us could ever have imagined. Thank you” - Crystal and Chris

GREEN IS THE NEW WHITE

Year on year Askham Hall set business goals that include strategies focussed on making your day a little bit greener without removing any frills:

  • Removing single use plastics and reducing our use of paper across our business with guests and suppliers
  • Constantly review and improve our waste management and recycling strategies, with all staff trained on the importance of recycling
  • Reducing the carbon footprint of our business operation
  • All kitchen food waste is composted
  • All vegetables and some fruits come from our gardens, and meat from our farms

THE FINAL THOUGHT


“We generally only allow one or at most two weddings per week, so that you have time to decorate your chosen space exactly as you wish, turning it into your dream party venue. We also welcome same sex and LGBT weddings.” - Askham Hall
