Askham Hall and Bank Barn, an exciting new style of country house hotel and wedding venue for Cumbria and the Lake District.
Opened in Spring 2014 with 15 bedrooms, a restaurant, private gardens, spa, wedding barn, medieval hall and outdoor pavilion. It's style? Luxurious, intimate, unpretentious, up-to-date and full of charm.
Within the grounds, a beautiful Grade II listed building ‘Bank Barn’ has been sympathetically converted into a sizeable first class wedding venue. Original features such as bare stone walls and an open beamed oak ceiling, together with contemporary lighting, stylish decor and large glass doors, make it a truly special and unique setting for your wedding reception all year round.
A variety of in-house catering options are available, utilising locally sourced produce, much of it grown and reared at Askham Hall itself or the 800 year old family estate, the Lowther Estate. Renowned chefs from our sister establishment the George and Dragon, Clifton, repeated winners of the Cumbria Tourism Taste Awards. A fully stocked bar is tailored specifically to your requirements. Tables, chairs, linen, crockery, cutlery and glasses are all provided inclusive of the venue hire fee.
The barn can be decorated as you wish. A variety of decorators, florists, hair and make-up stylists, dressmakers, photographers, cake makers, music bands and other services can be recommended.
They are licensed for civil ceremonies in the barn,medieval hall, our garden pavilion and in the main house.
St. Peters Church, Askham is located a stone's throw from the venue. A romantic walk takes you from the church through a secret door into the gardens and on to the wedding barn. Thirteenth century St. Michael's Church with its strong Lowther family connections, overlooking Askham Hall, the River Lowther and with views of Lowther Castle, is also a short distance from the venue.
