About The Priests House

The Priests House lies within the intimate and unmatched beauty of the Yorkshire Dales, standing within the presence of the majestic 12th century ruins of Barden Tower. We are proud to have been a part of hundreds of couples “best days”, and we would be delighted to be a part of yours.

Our lovingly and authentically restored Old Chapel is perfect for holding your ceremony, with its large, grand windows, original features and stone walls. For wedding breakfasts of thirty-two or more, The Old Chapel serves as a stunning setting for your meal. Meanwhile, for smaller parties, the House itself is an ideal and intimate room for your wedding breakfast following the ceremony in the Chapel. With log fires, original wooden beams and historical artefacts the House provides a setting full of character and medieval-era charm.

As we are situated in the Wharfedale Valley, fabulous views surround the entire venue. Outside of the Chapel, we have a courtyard, lawn and orchard with outside seating, which all serves as a perfect place to enjoy the tranquil setting. On your day, these will all be exclusive for you and your guests only shared with our family of ducks, two pheasants and the robin who have made our venue their home!

Here at The Priests House we can confidently promise a day to remember including:

- a stunning backdrop to truly capture just how magic your day is.

- delicious food courtesy of our in-house catering team (warning – please come hungry!).

- a service team that is personable, professional and efficient. We take pride in the fact that we foster an environment whereby our couples can focus on themselves and their guests, and not the wedding details.

- exclusive use of our immaculately maintained grounds and venue, including both The Priests House and The Old Chapel.

- the attention to detail and passion that you would expect – we truly care and take to heart that your day exceeds everything that you had imagined.

- access to a large catalogue of wedding decorations, from rustic to traditional wedding fayre free of charge. In addition, we also have an award-winning in-house floristry service courtesy of our business owner, Debbie.

We would love to hear from you about how we can help make your big day happen. Please read through our brochure and we hope to hear from you soon!

    So many compliments from everyone...

    Both Paul and I would like to express our heart felt thanks for all of the hard work that everyone put into our wedding day.

    As soon as I walked into the venue on our look around day, I knew it was the right place for us. On the day the venue was even better than I could ever have imagined. The tables were sensational. All of the finishing touches were amazing!

    The food was amazing. So many compliments from everyone. If I wasn’t in a wedding dress I would have licked my plate clean! Both Andy (vegan) and James (egg and bean allergy) were so happy with all of their food. And Conor brought Andy his own plate of Vegan wedding cake to top it off!

    Thank you so much for making our day...

    Hi Guys

    We’ve not long been back from our honeymoon but we just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone involved (Debbie, Steve, Mark, Kat, Conor & co) for how well our wedding day went last weekend. The flowers were just beautiful, the food was amazing and everything was absolutely perfect.

    Conor did a cracking job making sure we didn’t need to worry about anything and everyone loved it. We had so many comments about how amazing the venue was, so we couldn’t be happier with it all!

    Thank you so much for making our big day as special as it could have been.

    Daniel and Laura

    You even arranged the weather!

    I am sorry it has taken a while to write this note to thank you for the wonderful day you gave us at Sam and Katya's wedding. Debbie - your floral decorations were stunning; Mark - the food was out of this world and Conor and Kat - the attention to detail and friendliness you gave out party was without fault. You even arranged the weather!

    Most of all we cannot thank you enough for being flexible to reschedule the wedding date at short notice.

    You have a wonderful venue with professional and experienced individuals who really care that a wedding day is special. Thank you for everything
