The Priests House description
Wedding Venues / Wedding Venues / Party Venue / Funerals and Wakes / Team Building Venue
With the magnificent backdrop of the 15th century Barden Tower this is one of the most historic of Yorkshire civil wedding venues. Steeped in history and charm, this totally unique house is surrounded by some of the best landscape the Yorkshire Dales can offer.
The Priests House is an ideal venue for a very special, private function or celebration. This could be a medieval banquet, wedding, funeral, birthday or anniversary. Whatever the occasion, you will enjoy the privacy, the intimate ambience, the excellent menu and the totally relaxed and friendly service.
Smaller events up to 30 can use the House itself but we can accommodate up to 70 in the recently renovated "old chapel" beneath the House perfect for receptions, music nights, medieval banquets etc. It is a quite stunning and historic venue venue.
This venue is suitable for the following uses:
Within 20 meters
6 round tables, 6 rectangle tables
Yes - Manned
Other venue facilities
We are not a hotel, but do have the Barden Bunk Barn on site, literally on the other side of the Tower.
The Barn can accommodate up to 24 in four bedrooms, two bedrooms of four and two bedrooms of eight. One of the rooms of four could become a bridal room.
Ideal for guests who have potentially travelled a long way and want to make a weekend of it, families and the younger contingent wanting to carry on the evening!

We look forward to seeing you.
19 January 2019
Following the chapel refurbishment completed in June 2016, the one drawback was the lack of washrooms within easy reach. However, works commenced in January 2019 to build 3 new toilets plus a store room adjacent to the chapel. Hurray!
It is a 19 week project and should be completed in mid May 2019.
