1. The breath-taking Gatehouse

This imposing, historic building provides an atmospheric and unforgettable setting for your big day. The Gatehouse dates back to the 14th Century and was the grand entrance to an Augustinian Monastery that stood close to the River Nar. Having been fully restored to an incredibly high standard, the awe-inspiring structure is now a magnificent setting in which to tie the knot. The ceremony room within the Gatehouse can hold 80 guests and guests can enter the room through the secret spiral staircase for an entrance that will live long in the memory. The passageway is perfect to walk out amongst your confetti-throwing guests and leads into the grounds, complete with a delightful rose garden, which is an amazing spot to enjoy a drinks reception.

2. The Medieval barn

The barn at Pentney Abbey is a remarkable setting for a wedding breakfast and evening reception. It's wonderfully traditional, having been used as a medieval banquet hall in a former life, and the décor of exposed timber beams and brick, as well as stone flooring keeps this historical feeling very much alive. Boasting a relaxed atmosphere and lots of versatility, it's the perfect location to celebrate with friends and family, with plenty of space for a wedding band or DJ as well to keep you dancing all night long.
