Tucked away in the British countryside near Blacko in Lancashire, Stirk House is a wedding venue specialising in creating those perfect memories for momentous occasions. Dating back to the 16th century and set in the heart of the Ribble Valley, this manor house features unique traits such as stone-mullioned windows and a lovely cottage garden. With exquisite food to indulge in and an idyllic setting for your romantic escape, celebrate your dream wedding in this charming venue.

Facilities and Capacity

Stirk House can accommodate intimate ceremonies with your nearest and dearest to big luxurious parties for 250 guests. No matter how big or small your wedding is, the team will consistently give you the utmost attention and ensure everything runs smoothly on the day. The multi-purpose function suite means you can make the most of the space whilst keeping certain areas closed off for a more personal feel. The function suite has its own bar, bathrooms, and a private lounge area, meaning you can enjoy the exclusivity of your chosen setting. Equipped with a late license, there's no need to worry that the party will end too early. And once the main event has finished, the lounge bar is open to all residents wanting a peaceful nightcap. There are 33 bedrooms on site, sleeping between 85 and 90 people if all extra beds/sofa beds are used. The Seasons restaurant is open for you to come and try the exquisite food beforehand. It's also where you can dine the night before the wedding and have breakfast the day after - another excellent opportunity to catch up with loved ones.

Services Offered

The Stirk House Hotel's award-winning team, who have years of experience between them, are ready to assist with every detail tailored specially to you and your big day. We welcome any new ideas you may have - we pride ourselves on doing everything possible to ensure your vision comes to life. The wedding itself is not just limited to a one-day experience. Couples are welcome to come in and meet with the wedding team any time, from wedding fayres to private appointments and tasting sessions.

Best day EVER!!

Had the most amazing day for our wedding last week on 01.09.23. Stirk house was outstanding from start to finish, thank you to the wedding coordinators Danielle, Lucy & Elisha for answering my endless questions and making sure everything went seamless.
Food was incredible and had so many compliments, all food came out so quick and no table was without while others ate which is a rare thing at weddings and we was very impressed.
Dave is just amazing, he made sure the day ran smoothly and kept everyone in the know, nothing was too much and the energy was kept high throughout the whole day!
Just wish I could do it all over again, THE perfect wedding venue and will be visiting each year on our anniversary to relive this magical day!
Thank you for everything, Mr & Mrs Gori (Mr & Mrs G) xx

All members of staff at Stirk House Hotel are fabulous, they are very professional and they kept me at ease through out all the planning. On the day, dave the toast master made sure everyone was where they were meant to be at the right time. He made everyone laugh and always had a smile on his face whenever you saw him.

Best day of our lives

We got married at stirk house on the 30th July
Our wedding from start to finish was flawless and perfect. The weddings team were so organised and perfectly organised ready for our big day, they all made me feel so special.
The biggest shout out I have to give is to Dave. Dave is stirk houses master of ceremonies and he will forever hold a very special place in mine and my husbands heart. I have never met a more kind genuine and lovely person in my life, nothing was too much trouble for Dave he made sure everything went perfectly and just wanted to make sure we was well looked after, he made sure me and my husband was eating and always had a drink as the day can be a bit overwhelming and it is something we wouldn’t of had chance to do without Dave. No words will ever be enough thank Dave, all our guests commented on how amazing you was. Stirk house are so lucky to have you your worth your weight in gold xx
