Askham Hall and Bank Barn is an exciting new style of a country house hotel and wedding venue for Cumbria and the Lake District.

Opened in 2014 and now with 19 bedrooms, a Michelin starred restaurant, private gardens, outdoor heated pool, wedding barn, medieval hall and outdoor pavilion. Is it style? Luxurious, intimate, unpretentious, up-to-date and full of charm. There are also two stunning churches nearby.

Asham Hall

Finalist for Cumbria Tourism’s ‘'Taste Award' 2019 as well as Taste of England Bronze 2018.

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.

Amazing wedding venue
Amazing wedding venue. My husband and I got married here and along with the wedding party stayed over the night before for a meal. The food on both the wedding day and the Friday night meal was incredible. The staff are also so friendly and professional, the whole team at Askham Hall surpassed our expectations in every way. Such an amazing venue, beautifully decorated, with a great mix of history and modern interior design.” January 2016

It really was the best day of our lives and you guys worked so hard – the food was amazing, the service was excellent and the hall, gardens and barn were just perfect. We couldn’t have asked for anything more.” September 2015
