"Askham Hall is the perfect place for a party. Our beautiful shabby-chic style Bank Barn is suitable for a medium to large celebration being able to seat 150 people. There are plenty of options to suit your requirements. There are two stunning churches within half a mile of Askham Hall, furthermore we are an approved venue for civil ceremonies.  We can provide a really special setting, luxurious accommodation, exquisite food and a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. Askham Hall is a relatively small venue and best suited to your party taking all the accommodation in the house for a wedding party using the Bank Barn, as then you can use the reception rooms and lawns for your drinks reception. We generally only allow one or at the most two weddings per week, so that you have time to decorate Bank Barn exactly as you wish and turn it into your dream party venue."                                                       Taken from Askham Hall website
