Superb venue, wonderful staff and fantastic service

From the moment walked into Bowcliffe something just felt right, a gorgeous setting in beautiful rooms the ballroom was perfect to suit our needs with ample space for a band. Becky looked after us from start to finish and really took a lot of the stress out of it all for us. On the night itself the staff were fabulous, they worked incredibly hard and nothing was too much trouble.

We can't recommend this venue enough, fabulous food, well organised and wonderful staff, all the right ingredients for our wedding party to be a huge success. All our friends and family absolutely loved it.

The perfect wedding venue in Yorkshire

We can't recommend Bowcliffe Hall more highly. From the moment we stepped into the venue, we knew it was the perfect place to host our special day. We loved the fact that we had the building and grounds exclusively to ourselves and that there were different and unique areas to hold the ceremony, drinks reception, wedding breakfast and evening reception. The decor is beautiful and didn't require many additional extras. All of our guests were impressed with the location and many mentioned the high quality of the food. They also really enjoyed the lawn games!

Our wedding day itself couldn't have gone more smoothly and we wouldn't have changed a thing. Our wedding co-ordinator Catherine was a joy to work with throughout and a real safe pair of hands - nothing was too much trouble and she promptly replied to any questions.

We'll treasure our memories at Bowcliffe for years to come.

The MOST PERFECT wedding venue

There are really no words to describe this venue other than PERFECT! From start to finish, planning your wedding day at this venue is a breeze! The staff are incredible, the venue is picture perfect and the food is Devine! Nothing was ever too much trouble for the staff, the running of the day went incredible smoothly and the compliments we had from our guests are still coming in now (6months after the wedding)

If you’re considering this venue for your wedding, JUST BOOK IT! You won’t be disappointed!

Top Notch Wedding Venue

From the very first visit to Bowcliffe, we knew this was the place for us, beautiful grounds with a bit of quirkiness (which we really liked). Although the grounds and facilities are great, I have to say it was the Bowcliffe Team that made our Big day really special. Nothing was too much trouble and we always felt confident and reassured throughout the planning process.
We wanted our day to be a fantastic experience for the both us, and for our guests....Bowcliffe Hall didn't let us down.

The best day of our lives…

As soon as we saw Bowcliffe we knew this was the venue for us. We loved the fun little quirks with the signs and quotes but overall fell in love with the gardens and building.

We worked with Brooke as our wedding coordinator and she was incredible, nothing was too much to ask for and she made planning our day so easy and enjoyable. She seemed just as excited as us about our plans and we appreciated her expertise and positive energy! The whole team made sure the day flowed effortlessly and the evening staff were great and really helped us just be able to enjoy our evening and took great care of our guests (shoutout to Imogen and Paul)!

I wish we could do the entire day because it was just perfect.

I can’t comment on the food as we used an outside caterer (Kings Catering, Harrogate) but know that they found communicating with Bowcliffe easy which made planning really smooth.

Amazing venue 10/10!

From looking round the venue to the actual wedding day, the venue were amazing. Nothing was too much trouble and they sorted everything! All our guests commented on how amazing the venue was and how lovely the gardens were. The food is SO good, again our guests commented on how good the food was and that it was the best wedding food they had had. Compared to the cost of some other venues and everything you get, it’s a bargain as far as weddings go!

Stunning venue

Catherine, our wedding planner, was so professional and really put us at our ease. We never felt pressured or hurried during the wedding planning. On the big day, everything was perfect. Catherine was there on hand and all went smoothly. Bowcliffe Hall is a stunning venue. All our guests commented on how beautiful it was, on how amazing the food was. We loved every moment. Thank you!

We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Bowcliffe Hall.

July Wedding Ceremony

Rebecca and the events team at Bowcliffe were brilliant from start to finish.
They were very helpful throughout the process and communication was always great.
They were very flexible & accommodating for our needs, nothing was too much trouble. We had a couple of pre meetings to discuss our requirements which were great.
The team went above and beyond for us particularly on the days prior, helping to set the room up and put some chair decorations out for us.

On the day It was a perfect ceremony and everything was perfectly timed by Rebecca and the team. This took so much of the stress away knowing there was someone telling everyone where to be and what to do!
The room I got ready in before the ceremony was absolutely brilliant and made a huge difference, meaning I didn’t have the extra stress of getting to the venue and we could order any drinks or breakfast snacks required!
After the ceremony we had a gorgeous drinks reception in the wing, everyone loved it!
The setting is super private and the gardens are beautiful, we had some gorgeous photographs taken.

We would 100% recommend this wedding venue to anyone, overall the venue is amazing and very well looked after, the team are so friendly and excellent to work with!

A day we will never forget!

Catherine and the Bowcliffe events team are truly amazing.
From my last minute texts to Catherine the morning of the wedding about the weather to collecting our belongings the follow day everything was seamless!

Can’t thank them enough for their hard work in making our day so special.

Can't fault it!

Bowcliffe is a truly unique wedding venue, offering character, incredible food and an amazing setting. We looked around a lot of other venues, but nothing else compares! We had our wedding breakfast in the ballroom and then moved to the Blackburn Wing in the evening, which meant our guests were never stood around waiting and it kept the day flowing nicely! Everyone at Bowcliffe was extremely professional to deal with and made wedding planning as stress free as possible, even during Covid! We honestly can't recommend Bowcliffe enough and are so grateful to the team for giving us the wedding we dreamed of.

Perfect Day

We had a fantastic day which Brooke and all the team at Bowcliffe managed perfectly. They managed the arrival of guests and all external parties such as florist, cake, band & DJ. The venue looked perfect & the food and drinks were fantastic. Thanks again for a perfect day

Amazing hidden gem of a venue!

My husband found Bowcliffe Hall by chance on one of the many attempts to reschedule our wedding (our original plan was to go abroad before covid hit), we couldn't understand how we hadn't stumbled across it before on previous reattempts but so glad we found it for what turned out to be the last one!
We dealt with Catherine throughout the process and she was so lovely and professional, answered all our emails and queries so quickly and was really thorough when we came to look around the grounds initially. She made sure we understood all the options we had for how we could have our day, and as the time drew closer she made sure we had given all the information needed and considered all possibilities somehow without making us feel under pressure.
The day itself was perfect, Catherine kept everything organized to a point where we didn't feel like we had to worry about it (including a slight weather related change of plan) and she was somehow always on hand to coordinate everything and let us know what was happening and when, while also slipping seamlessly into the background-no small task given that we didn't have the biggest guest list!
The grounds are absolutely stunning and made the perfect backdrop for our photos, and I honestly couldn't have imagined the day going any better than it did. Also the price we paid for the service we got was really reasonable in our opinion, I would highly recommend Bowcliffe Hall to anybody considering them :)
