About The Tithe Barn – Bolton Abbey

Bolton Abbey, Skipton
North Yorkshire, BD23 6EX

Walking into the Tithe Barn, most visitors say very little for a while.  It needs a little time to take in the scale and the beauty of the building.  The Barn is 10 bays long, with a timber structure of massive proportions, quite remarkably well-preserved.  'Wow factor' doesn’t really do it justice.

Outside, it gets better.  From the terrace, you look into the renowned Wharfedale landscape – Yorkshire’s “jewel in the crown”.  Below you, the river winds through this beautiful scenery, leading to the Bolton Priory and Church.

We think that the combination of Barn and Setting put The Tithe Barn on a very short list of the country’s most romantic wedding venues.

The Tithe Barn is taking bookings for weddings in Summer 2018, Please take a look at our website for more information.

An amazing day
Venue Service

By Sophia Stephanides, on 29 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 17 Nov 2018

The Tithe Barn is an absolutely beautiful location for a wedding. We decided to get married here when it was still being renovated and could immediately appreciate how beautiful it was going to be. However, what really sold it to us was the people working there. They were so accommodating and helped us create exactly the day we wanted, giving us a lot of helpful pointers along the way. The day went without a hitch. The food was absolutely incredible and everyone told us it was the best wedding food they had ever had. There was also a lot of it! The people that worked the day were so professional and kept everything so well organised without us even really noticing. It was perfect. I couldn’t recommend it highly enough.

What. A. Venue! We had the pleasure of having our wedding at the Tithe Barn last weekend and it'll be a day and a place I'll never forget. Now, I realise your wedding day is going to be the best day of your life, but I think the staff at the Tithe Barn took the best day of my life and amplified it by 100%. Everything about the day was completely perfect and exceeded our expectations in every way possible. The food was incredible - I had several guests pull me to one side and say that they had never had food this good at a wedding. There was plenty of choice on the drinks front and I never had to wait long to order a pint - not bad at a place where there were over 180 people in the evening! The staff were brilliant! A place as amazing as the Tithe Barn would not work without superb people. Sharon and Gillian looked after us on the day and they were absolutely fantastic and are such a credit to Cripps. They ran the day superbly and everything went off without a hitch! They were friendly, approachable and great to deal with all the way throughout. As for the venue itself, WOW! It takes your breath away when you walk in and has a beautiful setting, overlooking Bolton Abbey. This could be the greatest place to get married in Yorkshire! We were even lucky enough to be able to stand on the terrace and watch the firework display from the Abbey, which was a bonus to an already unforgettable day. I really hope more people I know get married here in the future, as I can't wait to come back again!

We were the first couple to view the Tithe Barn in its original state untouched and still a farm with big plans from the Cripps group, we knew it was the venue for us. One year later the barn was finished with 4 weeks until our wedding date, we booked in to visit and have our final planning meeting. Gillian the manager met us upon arrival and walked us in... I cried and Gillian cried with me, it blew me away, it is simply stunning and has been restored with such empathy and high quality its a very special building and I can’t recommend anyone to look around enough and see for yourself! Not only is the building amazing the whole process from booking our wedding to the big day has been nothing short of perfection and made so easy with the online account and regular contact, no question is too small. The team at the Tithe Barn are so professional and dedicated to making your day very special. Gillian wow what a lady she is and such a perfectionist her organising and team leading skills are second to none which was handed over to Sharon in the evening and again Sharon was just as fabulous. The food was delicious with everyone having seconds, you need to try the dauphinoise potatoes! We can’t thank everyone at the Tithe Barn enough, our wedding was just perfect, it really was the best day of our lives. Our friends and family are still talking about how beautiful the barn is, we want to do it all again!
