Browsholme, has more choice than any other venue for wedding couples to create their perfect day. We are a Lancashire wedding venue that takes pride in meeting our couples’ aspirations, whether for a large party, or an intimate number of guests. Every wedding is tailor-made, and our team care for you and your guests to deliver the best hospitality. Set in over 600 acres of countryside, our glorious wedding venue is in the Forest of Bowland, and only 5 miles from Clitheroe .

Fully exclusive for the day, couples have a choice of locations to celebrate their marriage and entertain their guests. Weddings are a time to celebrate, and where better than at Browsholme, which encompasses the marriages, dreams and achievements of generations. We pride ourselves on our commitment to delivering weddings and events to the highest standard. That may be from sourcing local ingredients for your food; training our staff to anticipate your needs; or setting out straw bales from our farm for your guests.

  •  Tithe Barn and Courtyard is the focus for most ceremonies, receptions and evening party.
  •  Regency Drawing Room is an elegant, traditional and historic setting for civil ceremonies (max 60 guests).
  •  The Pavilion by the Lily Pond is a new location for outside ceremonies in the gardens of Browsholme Hall.
  •  The Cart Shed for intimate receptions.
  •  “Lonesome Pine” a new and unique woodland setting. Wedding under the tree canopy!

Lastly, for those couples wishing to use a celebrant we are happy to discuss other areas of the gardens, lakeside and woodlands for an entirely natural and memorable setting.

Tithe Barn and Courtyard

Two seventeenth century historic barns, lovingly restored, provide the perfect balance of romance, tradition and rusticity. The outdoor courtyard, with covered bar, pizza oven, firepits and sheltered seating creates the perfect buzz in the evening, as guests relax  and soak up the atmosphere.

Restored in 2010, this historic barn has been transformed into a unique new venue for weddings for up to 120 guests. The barn has beautiful authentic features, such as exposed stone, oak beams and flagstone floors which create a unique atmosphere and a canvas for couple’s own creativity in decoration.  Latest design innovations in lighting, video, sound systems and catering facilities have been seamlessly integrated to provide a truly unique experience.

Outside the Courtyard provides a fantastic space to use during reception drinks and in the evening is a great area for a party especially when coupled with our outdoor pizza oven.

The Regency Drawing Room

Regency Drawing Room

This stunning Regency Room has walls draped in red silk, high ceilings and the biggest windows! You cannot match it for elegance and the views of the landscaped parkland  will take your breath away. All that history around you.

For a true historic, traditional setting the Regency Drawing Room is a romantic English setting reminiscent of Edwardian times. This Drawing Room was a room created in 1805 for the very special family occasion and is now available for civil wedding ceremonies  for up to 60 quests, before moving to the Tithe Barn for the wedding breakfast.

The Pavilion by The Lily Pond

The Lily Pond sits at the southern end of the Wilderness garden, and the pavilion is a beautiful, rustic building crafted from Browsholme’s own two hundred year old oak trees. The roof is hand covered in wooden shingles, and the setting is peaceful and embodies English country garden. The light is just wow!

The Landscaping of the Lily Pond, is complete, and  creates a wonderful outside venue for a civil ceremony and reception from 2021 onwards. For wet weather there is always the option to move to the Tithe Barn to hold your wedding breakfast. The images here show progress in landscaping before the grass is sown and cherry trees in flower. We can’t wait for Spring when everything will burst into life and the banks will be covered in flowers.

The Cart ShedThe Cart Shed

The Cart Shed

Finished in March 2020 (what timing!!) and originally used to house the farm carts and ponies, this is another triumph of sympathetic restoration and ideal for smaller parties and ceremonies. Our usual impeccable high standards deliver flag floors, wooden beams and those massive, curved windows, not forgetting the under-floor heating; toasty!

This historic Cart Shed was converted to create an intimate venue for small weddings and events. Close to the Tithe Barn and the Woodland Glade, it’s ideal for weekday weddings with close family and friends.

The Lonesome PineThe Lonesome Pine

Lonesome Pine

An idyllic forest setting, close to the lake and surrounded by trees and woodland plants. Let the beauty of nature enhance your day and take your guests on an enchanted woodland adventure.

For those couples who aspire to a natural setting for their marriage we have a unique location in natural woodland surrounded by native trees. Imagine taking your vows beneath an ancient Scots Pine followed by a drinks reception before returning to the Tithe Barn, or Cart Shed for wedding breakfast. Being created this summer in anticipation in a change in law to allow civil ceremonies not within a formal structure; but otherwise for a ceremony performed by a celebrant.

A wedding venue for all seasons

Many of our couples choose December as a very special time for their wedding with the nights drawn in, seasonal decoration and the time for a family gathering. November is a great option being close enough to Christmas yet before other family events compete for attention. While in February there are the snowdrops and frosty mornings, or March and April for daffodils and the first signs of Spring make Browsholme a venue for all seasons!
