Preparation Room

We want you to relax from the moment you arrive at Pentney Abbey. With that in mind, our preparation room is all yours on the morning of your wedding. This contemporary, luxurious space features four large dressing tables with mirrors and beautifully upholstered chairs – just the place to pamper and prepare with your wedding party. Open the doors to find yourself outside, immediately opposite the entrance to the Gatehouse and your wedding ceremony.

We had the most amazing wedding day and we can't thank Jaymi and her team enough. They all went above and beyond, nothing was too much trouble.

Emma & James


Our splendid towering arched Gatehouse dates back to 1380 and boasts stunning stonework and carvings. It is here that you can marry, in an idyllic space that offers a serenity and ethereal ambiance perfectly suited to a ceremony in the style of a medieval wedding. Beside the Gatehouse, the Upper East Chamber awaits, a tranquil ‘ante room’ in which you can take a moment to relax both before and after saying your vows.

Wedding Barn

Originally used as a medieval banqueting hall, our Barn is quite the perfect setting for your wedding breakfast and evening party. Those seeking a unique venue will fall in love with its space, versatility, original features and character, with glass doors opening on to a generous patio and large expanse of lawn.
