Opened in Spring 2014, Askham Hall and Bank Barn provide the modern country house wedding venue you’ve been looking for. Located in Cumbria, on the edge of the beautiful Lake District National Park, the venue is suitable for weddings of all sizes and offers a luxurious, intimate and relaxed place in which to say “I do”.

A multi award-winning, family run venue.

We are licensed for civil ceremonies in the barn as well as our newly refurbished Medieval Hall and, if the weather is on your side, our outdoor pavilion. For a traditional ceremony, St. Peters Church and St. Michael’s Church are just a short distance from the venue. If desired, we can provide the contact details for both churches.

Within the grounds of Askham Hall, the grade II listed Bank Barn has been beautifully restored to the highest standard creating a spacious area for weddings and events.

Josie and I would to thank you all for your support and care taken to endure our day was very special. We had a great time and will remember our wedding with great fondness and happiness.

By Alice and Chris, on 30 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 27 Jan 2018

Thank you so so much for making it the most perfect weekend we could have ever hoped for! Every single detail was just amazing and it could not have gone any better, I just wish we could do it all over again. Thank you for all your help leading up to and on the day itself and also please pass this on to Nico who looked after our family so well in the house. It was really lovely to get to know you all and the wedding wouldn’t have been the same without you. Hopefully see you again soon!

So memorable
Venue Service

By Mother and father of the bride, on 26 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 20 Jan 2018

Thank you for making Nathalie and Andy's wedding so memorable. We have had many compliments about the event however none of it would have worked without the planning and 'doing' from you and the rest of the team at Askham. Our room was amazing, we loved the food, it was such a pretty venue (hall, barn and main hall), we will be back!

Hi Lindsey & Victoria, Just a quick email to thank you both immensely for all you both did for our wedding last week! Right from the beginning dealing with Denise everything at Askham Hall has been amazing! We certainly made the right decision in choosing our venue!! Lindsey you have put up with me being a fussy nightmare all year now and I can’t thank you enough for all your help, patience and advice along the way. Vicky, I’ll be honest I was really worried about meeting you when we arrived last Friday as we hadn’t met before. I was concerned that we had been working setting the wedding up with someone else then someone new for the actual wedding. I need not of worried! The whole day ran like clockwork, we were both so happy that you were there and that we could actually forget about things and simply enjoy our day. You are fab! Thank you?? It’s been amazing working with people who are professional, down to earth and friendly! I can’t believe that only a week ago we were there setting up, gutted it’s all over. But so thankful and happy that the day was truly amazing and the memories we made will remain forever. Hope you all have an amazing Christmas and a brill 2018!! With love and thanks,

Thank you!

Hey AH Team, Johnathan and I are still so overwhelmed by the the hard work and effort by the whole Askham Hall team from Lauren and Tracey, to the bar staff and hotel. You guys truly made our experience incredible and my family and friends have all praised you on the commitment from you to ensure our weekend was like no other. It was a beautiful, emotional and hilarious day and one we will never forget and you guys made sure of that. We cannot thank you enough, we’ve had some friends and family ask for your details for future weddings and events because it was that good! We are emotional writing this message! We will be back next year for our anniversary! Thanks again guys and the best of luck for the future! Love Chez and Johnathan xxxx

Such a fantastic place!
Venue Service

By Clare and Phil, on 10 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 28 Oct 2017

Now that we've had a bit of time to catch our breath, I just wanted to send you an email to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for delivering the perfect day. We had so many people ask us how we managed to find such a fantastic place, and so many comments on the food, the setting, and how lovely the team were. Nico and Vicki went completely above and beyond to make sure that everything went seamlessly, and we just had a wonderful, wonderful time. We're planning on maybe coming back to stay and eat in the restaurant to celebrate our first anniversary next year, so we'll hope to see you all then, if not before. Thanks again,

What an amazing day!

Hi Lindsey and everyone else at Askham! Still a little speechless and overwhelmed to be honest. What an amazing day! Our day was absolutely perfect, from the pre-planning with you, the work behind the scenes, Vicky's amazing support and understanding on the day, the food, the staff, the venue, even the weather was on side! I could go on and on about all the small details, but honestly, there isn't enough words! It was more than we had hoped for and EVERYBODY had such a great time which was the most important thing for us, and you guys all made that happen. Really looking forward to all the photos and videos of the day and will be sure to send these over. Hopefully we will have chance to pop up to the cafe soon for another amazing sausage roll ??, and another big thank you in person. All our love guys ? and Thank you again xxx

It was perfect!

By Dawn and Rob, on 31 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 10 Oct 2017

Can we just say a huge thank you to the Askham Hall wedding team, in particular Vicky; she was amazing on the day and we literally did not have to worry about anything. It was perfect. Also, a special thank you to the bar staff for attending to and taking one of our friends to A&E when he bumped his head.

A very enjoyable occassion
Venue Service

By John and Bee Tyson, on 14 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 01 Oct 2017

We wanted to thank you for a lovely stay and for making Ella and Gavin’s day wonderful. The hall has a lovely ambience, it feels homely and warm and that is down to thoughtful design and organization of course but mainly the staff who without exception are helpful in every way. It just remains for me to thank you and your team for your excellent organisation of the day, and remaining calm when we were not entirely. You really do think of everything and it makes for a very enjoyable occasion.

Wonderful wedding
Venue Service

By Lydia and Adam, on 04 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 01 Jul 2017

We just wanted to say a massive thank you for our wonderful wedding at the weekend, every single thing you did for us was perfect and we've had a truly brilliant time- only just starting to recover! The grounds, the staff, the food, the barn, your wonderful coordinators, everything went absolutely smoothly and we couldn't have asked for any more. Thank you for being so flexible with us to make our day exactly how we wanted it- we hope to see you soon for some other events.
