A perfect venue in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales

ABOUT THE VENUE
Welcome to The Priests House
Nestled in the shadow of the impressive ruins of Barden Tower, a Grade 1 listed building with superb views of the valley and surrounding hills, The Priests House has a fine reputation for excellent cuisine and service. Whether for an intimate and exclusive wedding, a private function, a Sunday lunch or a genuine medieval banquet this is a unique North Yorkshire venue.
Both the House and the Chapel are steeped in history and charm. The House retains many of its original features such as the dark oak beamed ceilings, paned windows and real log fires and the Chapel has been recently renovated with its large airy windows, designed chandeliers and fabulous entrance. As soon as you set foot inside you know this is a place with a special ambience.

Make your wedding day even more special
The Priests House is the perfect venue to celebrate the most important day of your life.
We combine an extremely experienced and enthusiastic team, an enchanting setting and
the ability to be as hands on or hands off as you like, to ensure it’s not just the most important day, but the best day too.
We believe that a smaller wedding is still a ‘big’ day.
Whether you have had to reduce your numbers due to the pandemic or were looking for a more intimate wedding already, we have you covered. From a ceremony in the Old Chapel to a wedding breakfast in the rustic Oak Room, we have everything you need to make your day as special as it should be. Please check out our brand-new Intimate Wedding Package, crafted for weddings of up to fifteen people in mind.
“We just want to relive the day from start to finish over and over again”.
