The Day Before
When you arrive at Howsham, our team can be on hand to greet you and your guests with some light refreshments or perhaps a delicious home-made afternoon tea. The 80 acres of grounds are perfect for a range of outdoor activities, or you may wish to spend the afternoon relaxing in one of the many opulent lounges next to one of our roaring fires.
In the evening, there are a range of catering options available and our team will be happy to work with you to create a hassle free stay for everyone.
The Big Day
Howsham Hall offers the best of everything – the Bridal Suite is the perfect space for pre-wedding pampering, and the Billiard Room offers a quiet retreat for a pre-ceremony game of pool.
The Great Hall is licenced for Civil Ceremonies and has glorious views across the countryside that surrounds the house. Reception Drinks & Canapés on the front lawn allows guests to really appreciate the beautiful setting, and the grounds have endless backdrops for those all important photographs.
Coming back inside, your Wedding Breakfast would be served in the Drawing Room, which has a fabulous fireplace and features. It’s a beautiful and elegant room, seating up to 96 guests (or up to 160 guests can be seated for dinner using the Drawing Room and Great Hall, which has a doorway linking the two).
After speeches, guests can make their way out to the riverside terrace, which adjoins the bar and dance floor area to party the night away!
