About Askham Hall

We can provide a really special setting, luxurious accommodation, exquisite food and a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. Askham Hall is a 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. Furthermore we welcome same sex and LGBT weddings.

Intimate weddings 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.

The old chapel is licensed for civil ceremonies of up to 30. There are also other rooms licensed for more and fewer numbers and the garden pavilion is licensed too. Your wedding breakfast can be held in one or more of the private dining rooms for as few as 2 people up to about 40.
For later in the evening, you can then move to the medieval hall if you wish for dancing and drinks or just relax in the main house. The medieval hall is a beautiful room dating back to the 1500s with many original features intact, including a large medieval fireplace and traditional low hanging beams.
