ABOUT Askham Hall

Award-winning Askham Hall and Bank Barn, a new style country house hotel in the Lake District is the perfect place for a wedding with plenty of options to suit your budget and requirements.

A family run venue with 18 bedrooms, a restaurant, gardens, spa, wedding barn and outdoor pavilion, Askham Hall is luxurious, intimate, unpretentious, up-to date and full of charm. There are two stunning churches within half a mile and we are approved for civil ceremonies. We welcome same sex and LGBT weddings.

We can provide a really special setting, luxurious accommodation, exquisite food and a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. Askham Hall is  ideally suited to your party taking all the accommodation in the house for a wedding party using the Bank Barn, as then you can use the reception rooms and lawns for your drinks reception. We generally only allow one or at the most two weddings per week, so that you have time to decorate Bank Barn exactly as you wish and turn it into your dream party venue.

Weddings for up to 156 seated guests in the barn
Within the grounds of Askham Hall, our charming Grade II listed Bank Barn has been sympathetically converted into a first class wedding venue with a capacity for up to 156 guests seated and up to 200 guests for the evening. With original features, bare stone walls and an open beamed oak ceiling together with contemporary lighting, an oak dance floor and large glass doors, Askham Hall really is a special and unique setting for your wedding.

Intimate weddings for 2-40 guests seated in the house
We also offer the perfect environment for smaller weddings. Whether it is a cosy winter wedding in the house or a summer wedding in the garden, we have plenty of options to suit your requirements. We imagine the perfect intimate wedding involving getting married in the old chapel or the garden pavilion followed by a wedding breakfast in one of the private dining rooms, followed by a party in the medieval hall.
