The Setting

Askham Hall is a beautiful setting for your wedding. With a grand and luxurious Grade I listed manor house dating back to the late 1200s and stunning Grade II gardens along with a stylishly converted 17th century Bank Barn full of character, they have plenty to offer.

Originally built as a defensive Pele Tower, the main house itself was extended in the 1400s to allow for a Medieval Hall, more rooms and various annexes. Subsequently, they evolved into a majestic 16th Century Elizabethan mansion with additional wings dating from the 17th century. It is the former family home of the 7th Earl of Lonsdale and is still to this day owned by the family.

On the doorstep of the Lake District National Park, they have a stunning backdrop of the River Lowther and beautiful local fells.

The Vibe

They provide everything you need for your wedding to happen, from planning to napkins. Your choices are your own, as they provide only bespoke weddings with exclusive use. Your menus are provided for by their own Kitchen Gardens on site, and by the wider 800-year-old Lowther family estate. Your day is brought to life by their dedicated wedding team, making you and your guests the priority throughout.

They are fully licensed for civil and celebrant ceremonies both within the House and Barn, though if you prefer a church ceremony they have two beautiful 13th and 17th century churches within a 5 minute walking distance from their grounds, complete with secret garden entrance. They also have an outdoor garden pavilion, for outdoor ceremonies.

Their Allium restaurant maintains its Michelin Star, 3 AA Rosettes and Best Wine List Award; the venue was recently awarded the Good Hotel Guide’s 2022 “Cesar Award for the Best Country House”; and their weddings have been awarded the Good Hotel Guide’s 2021 “Editor’s Choice”. As a family run business, the team are so proud to be able to share the products of their hard work and are continually grateful for their incredible guests and couples for their support.
