Adding to its already fabulous portfolio of venues, award-winning hospitality specialists Dine will provide couples marrying at Howsham with a full event management service and first-class catering to complete their dream day.
Can you tell us a little about the history of Howsham Hall?
dine say: The Grade I listed Howsham Hall lies to the north east of York in a quiet, secluded valley. Originally part of a large traditional estate stretching to 11,000 acres and having been a family home for 350 years. Howsham Hall has been transformed into a luxurious North Yorkshire countryside retreat, located 14 miles from York.
How would you describe the look and feel of the venue?
A beautiful blend of heritage and modern luxe. Far from the traditional, tired country house – this Jacobean treasure has been restored to an exceptionally high standard. Accentuating stunning original features with a splash of modern interior design, creating a truly stunning space for private hire.
Can you tell us about the ceremony and reception areas and how many guests the venue can cater for?
There are five formal reception rooms – 250 guests can be accommodated in a marquee in the grounds or 160 for a seated meal in the house. Each room is unique and in particular, the Great Hall and Drawing Room lend themselves beautifully to wedding ceremonies and celebrations.
What makes Howsham Hall a special wedding venue and sets it apart from others?
The stunning building has never been used for weddings before, so you won’t be copying any of your friends or family with your venue choice. Those marrying at Howsham are also given exclusive use of the venue, so couples and their guests can enjoy total privacy during your stay at the Hall.
