The Vibe

A historic house luxuriously restored with quirky décor.

Howsham Hall is the ultimate wedding venue, offering the opportunity to extend your special day into a full weekend of celebrations. Whether you are planning an intimate wedding or a larger celebration, a sumptous feast of a wedding breakfast or a relaxed summer buffet, Howsham Hall is the perfect location to create your dream wedding.

Imagine arriving the day before with your closest friends and family – you can stay in the 12 bedrooms which include one of Europe’s largest Bridal Suites, a couple of family suites and a range of luxury twin and double rooms (the house can sleep up to 28 guests). Within the house there are range of stylish lounge areas so that you can sit back and enjoy the weekend with everyone.

The Great Hall is licenced for Civil Ceremonies and has glorious views across the countryside that surrounds the house.  Reception Drinks & Canapés on the front lawn allows guests to really appreciate the beautiful setting, and the grounds have endless backdrops for those all important photographs.

Coming back inside, your Wedding Breakfast would be served in the Drawing Room, which has a fabulous fireplace and features.  It’s a beautiful and elegant room, seating up to 96 guests (or up to 160 guests can be seated for dinner using the Drawing Room and Great Hall, which has a doorway linking the two).

After speeches, guests can make their way out to the riverside terrace, which adjoins the bar and dance floor area to party the night away!
