Askham, Near Penrith, Cumbria, CA10 3HW // 01931 712350

Askham Hall and Bank Barn is an exciting new style of country house hotel and wedding venue for Cumbria. Sitting on the edge of the Lake District, this grade I listed hideaway dates back to the late 1200’s and is the former family home of the Earls of Lonsdale.
Opened in 2014 and now with 20 bedrooms, Michelin star restaurant The Allium at Askham Hall, private gardens, spa, wedding barn, medieval hall and outdoor pavilion. It's style? Luxurious, intimate, unpretentious, up-to-date and full of charm. There are also two stunning churches nearby.
Winner of Cumbria Tourism’s ‘Wedding Venue of the Year’ and North West Wedding Awards ‘Best Venue Cumbria’ 2016, and also Cumbria Tourism’s ‘Guest Accommodation of the Year’ 2016 and ‘Taste Experience’ 2015 and 2017. 'Taste of England' bronze 2018, Family Business Award 'Best Food & Drink establishment' 2018, Michelin Star 2020.
A beautiful Grade II listed building 'Bank Barn' has been sympathetically converted into a first class wedding venue with capacity for approximately 150 seated guests. Original features such as bare stone walls and an open beamed oak ceiling, together with contemporary lighting, stylish décor and large glass doors, make it a truly unique setting for your wedding reception all year round.
A variety of catering options are available, utilising locally sourced produce, grown and reared at Askham Hall itself and on the family estate. Tables, chairs, linen, crockery, cutlery and glasses are provided.
You may decorate the venue as you wish. A variety of florists, hair and make-up stylists, dressmakers, photographers, cake makers, music bands and other services can be recommended.
Askham Hall offers wedding menus bursting with seasonal style and ingredients straight off the Lowther family estate.
We are licensed for civil ceremonies, both in the barn for larger parties at weekends, in the main house for smaller parties, as well as the outdoor pavilion (weather permitting) and medieval hall.
Enjoy uninterrupted views of the River Lowther and surrounding countryside. St. Peters Church, Askham is located a stone's throw from the venue. A romantic walk takes you from the church through the gardens and onto the wedding barn. Thirteenth century St. Michael's Church with its strong family connections, overlooking Askham Hall, the River Lowther and with views of Lowther Castle, is also close by.

Alice and Chris

"Thank you so so much for making it the most perfect weekend we could have ever hoped for! Every single detail was just amazing and it could not have gone any better, I just wish we could do it all over again. Thank you for all your help leading up to and on the day itself and also please pass this on to Nico who looked after our family so well in the house. It was really lovely to get to know you all and the wedding wouldn’t have been the same without you. Hopefully see you again soon!"

Clare and Phil

"Now that we've had a bit of time to catch our breath, I just wanted to send you an email to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for delivering the perfect day. We had so many people ask us how we managed to find such a fantastic place, and so many comments on the food, the setting, and how lovely the team were. Nico and Vicki went completely above and beyond to make sure that everything went seamlessly, and we just had a wonderful, wonderful time. We're planning on maybe coming back to stay and eat in the restaurant to celebrate our first anniversary next year, so we'll hope to see you all then, if not before. Thanks again,"

Clare and Phil

"I just wanted to send you a note to say thank you so much for all your help and assistance running up to the weekend. We literally had the best weekend of our lives, we were really well looked after (particularly Nico) and everybody loved the venue, food and atmosphere.
