Special Events

A special occasion to remember

An anniversary? Your 50th? Leaving for Australia?

We like a good event, not only are we really good at hosting others, but we even trust ourselves to host our own!

From birthdays to wedding anniversaries,   bidding a fond farewell or celebrating some other milestone we aim to  ensure that your expectations are exceeded every time.

We have menus available to suit every occasion and can tweak as required and are able to cater for all dietary requirements.

We can help with arranging entertainment, can put you in touch with our preferred local suppliers who we work closely with and undertake any floral requirements you have.

The House can accommodate up to 30 for a cosy, intimate celebration, whilst the "Old Chapel" can host up to 70, with space for a disco or small band. Both venues have its own bar.


Whatever your special occasion, The Priests House is an ideal venue to host it. Located in the fabulous Wharfedale valley just a short ride from Skipton and Ilkley, its setting is breathtaking.

Our attention to your requirements, and high standard of service are second to none – assurance that your event will be a complete success. Our reputation for excellent cuisine is unparalleled throughout the area and we pride ourselves on our flexible and individual approach to your needs.

For those wishing for overnight accommodation, we have the Barden Bunk Barn onsite which can accommodate up to 24 people. The barn has been recently refurbished and upgraded to provide a high standard of comfort and facilities.

Music Nights

Whatever your musical taste, there is nothing like it live

We clearly can't promise Madonna or Ed Sheeran but we can all enjoy some of the best of our local talent. Our evenings are not just the artists though, it comes with a fabulous menu, dancing and a totally relaxing ambience. An event rather than just a concert - a full evening out.

So whether it is jazz, opera or 60's you will be assured of an enjoyable evening in a quite fabulous setting!
