Wedding Open Afternoon at Askham Hall
A chance to view the venue, see Bank Barn set up for a wedding and meet the friendly team.
Historic Askham Hall is a distinctly different place to say ‘I do’. Sitting on the edge of the Lake District, this grade I listed hideaway dates back to the late 1200’s and is the former family home
of the Earls of Lonsdale.
As well as a stunning Barn and a Medieval Hall, there is a Pavilion in the Grade II listed gardens, as well as a Gypsy Caravan for couples to sign the register. All set amid 12 acre gardens boasting an orchard, formal lawns and a double herbaceous border. Enjoy uninterrupted views of the River Lowther and surrounding countryside.
The Grade II listed Bank Barn has been sympathetically converted and has capacity for 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 a wedding reception all year round. 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.
Askham Hall offers wedding menus bursting with seasonal style and ingredients straight off the Lowther family estate. Tables, chairs, linen, crockery, cutlery and glasses are provided.
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.
With 18 unique bedrooms and a spa lap up the unpretentious luxury of this 13th Century retreat.
