Historic Yorkshire Dales Venue for Weddings, Private Functions & Fine Dining Venue


Long gone are the days when having a good night out with a few drinks and then driving home was the norm. Too right too. The Priests House in itself is not a hotel and doesn’t have any accommodation to offer but we do have the Barden Bunk Barn on site which is ideal for a stop over for up to 24 of your guests.  It is an ideal place to get changed,  freshened up, leave valuables during the day as well as somewhere to chill out afterwards. It is especially useful if you are organising a marquee reception as it comes with additional car parking facilities for guests and provides you with exclusive access to the site for the day.
