A warm welcome

Your own Country House for a Weekend

At Howsham Hall, the perfect wedding weekend stay includes exclusive use of the venue. Howsham Hall has 12 sumptuous bedrooms, offering guests a stay within a chic retreat, marrying a perfect blend of stylish interiors with a backdrop of a period house. Designed with a relaxing stay in mind but with a feel of grandeur, the interiors at Howsham Hall are perfect for guests to experience a quintessential English country house, with a difference! Just 30 minutes from York, the location is perfect for a little break from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Howsham Hall has the most spectacular Bridal Suite, one of the largest in Europe!! This amazing suite features a private sitting room with a larger lounge area, mirrors and dressing platforms, ideal for the bridal morning preparations. The Bridal Suite flows effortlessly through to a dressing room and main bedroom. The bathroom is fit for a royal couple, with a large feature bath, walk-in showers and views as far as the eye can see.

The ceremony is the centrepiece of your wedding day! Their Great Hall, with its tasteful décor, polished wood flooring, chandelier lighting, views across the front lawns and working stone fire, is a truly romantic place to hold your civil ceremony. Once the ‘I Do’s’ are done, it’s onto the celebrations! The Drinks Reception can be held outside in the gardens and grounds with the backdrop of the stunning majestic building for photographs. Guests can mingle and chat using the spacious, light-filled Staircase Hall – a photographer’s paradise. Guests can even have a snooker game in the Billiard Room while you’re taking your photos!

No Celebration is complete without food and drink! The Drawing Room will blow your guests away as your Wedding Breakfast setting; it is truly spectacular! Designed with the wow factor in mind, mixing a cocktail of contemporary and traditional allows for any style of wedding tablescape to come alive! Whether your style is classic, English country garden or modern with a luxury twist, any style will fit perfectly at home within the setting of Howsham Hall. As wedding packages don’t exist, your celebration is as individual as you as a couple. The food and drink you decide to have for your Wedding Day has been carefully curated by their award-winning chefs. From Champagne and delicate canapés for the Drinks Reception to an elegant and fine dining Wedding Breakfast, the choice is yours! Fun options also include grazing stations and evening bites to tempt your guests. Why not plan some entertainment and live music played on the Howsham Hall piano while guests enjoy a memorable meal? Sounds delightful!

When it is party time, Howsham Hall has its own evening bar and dancefloor wing! With direct access to the Riverside Terrace, dressed with festoon lighting, casual furniture and views of the river, guests can throw shapes on the dancefloor or enjoy a cocktail with a view! With rich velvets, copper accents and a private viewing gallery, this unique setting perfectly fits the quirks of Howsham Hall.

Once your booking of Howsham Hall is confirmed, you’ll be introduced to your dedicated Event Manager, who will be there throughout the run-up to your wedding, delivering award-winning service to help you plan your special day. From choosing suppliers to finalising the seating plan to advice on picking the perfect menu, they’ll be on hand to ensure your wedding planning is as stress-free as possible. With over 20 years of experience working with VIPs, celebrities and the Royal Family, you can be sure you’ll be in safe hands!

As Howsham Hall is not a hotel, you can treat it as yours for your stay. Design your wedding weekend around you: Stroll through the gardens and grounds, relax in front of the Great Hall fire with a book, have a girlie night of gossip in the Bridal Suite lounge or get competitive with a game or two of snooker in the billiards room. Relaxed luxury is what they do best!
