About The Tithe Barn – Bolton Abbey

Built in the 16th century, The Tithe Barn is set within the grounds of the Duke of Devonshire’s majestic Bolton Abbey estate in the Yorkshire Dales. This Grade II* listed building is one of the largest exclusive-use wedding venues in the UK. It is the latest in Cripps & Co’s barn restorations.

Inside, the barn’s majestic scale comes into its own. It is lit with uplights on the flagstone floor and fairy lights woven through the beams that support the barn’s elevated ceiling. Huge, medieval chandeliers refract candlelight around the room and colourful Moroccan stools are scattered around the bar.

The barn can accommodate 200 guests for a ceremony and dining, with a further 100 evening guests for dancing, bringing the total capacity to 300.

Ceremonies take place in the main barn. Outside the terrace has large fire pits and plenty of seating, so guests can enjoy the view across the Bolton Abbey Priory ruins and the surrounding landscape during post-ceremony drinks.

Feast in style in The Tithe Barn, on food flame-grilled on a huge indoor BBQ and French rotisseries. Our in-house chefs buy the best, cook it simply and serve it generously.

The on-site Tithe Barn team are on hand to help with everything, from the big ideas to the last minute details.

    Breathtaking Venue and Superb Service!

    We got married at the Tithe Barn on the 7th of March 2020 and feel unbelievable luck to have done so! The Tithe Barn blew us away from the moment we stepped inside!

    The team were supportive the whole way and Emily was absolutely fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble and they were so quick to respond to any queries and didn’t just accommodate but they totally embraced our slightly unusual way of doing things.

    During the day they looked after us so superbly, they anticipated every eventuality and the whole day ran without a single hitch! They even brought us a small plate of canapés whilst we were having out photos done! Our guests thought the venue was stunning and suited our day perfectly. The food was incredible and plentiful! The whole day was beyond imagination and we cannot recommend this venue and the Cripps team highly enough!

    Best Day Ever!

    We held our wedding reception at the Tithe Barn last weekend and it was everything we could’ve hoped for and so much more! It’s a breathtaking building, which we fell in love with from our first visit and which all of our guests were in awe of - we had so many comments saying it was the most amazing wedding venue they had ever seen! All of the communication from the team was amazing throughout our planning - we would hear back within a couple of hours about any query - thank you to Sharon and Emily and the rest of the team for everything you did to make our planning run so smoothly, and our day be the most memorable day of our lives. We can’t recommend this venue highly enough - just fabulous!

    Fantastic!!

    Myself and my Husband have nothing but praise for this beautiful venue and expert team of event coordinators! We married here last weekend and the day was just stunning. The food was fantastic and the day went seamlessly. My guests had nothing but outstanding feedback on all aspects of the day, and from our point of view the attention to detail of the staff was fantastic! A big ‘thank you’ to all involved - especially Emily who took the lead on our day and did an amazing job!
