Full Description
Set in 6 acres of gardens, this beautiful hotel and conference centre in a early 19th-century mansion house is less than a mile from Darwen and 2.4 miles from the M65 motorway. The main house offers elegant traditional rooms with original features, some with 4 poster beds, spa baths and garden views. Rooms in the garden wing have more contemporary-style furniture, and all have tea and coffee making facilities. The house has period decor throughout, including stained glass windows, wood panelling and an ornate staircase. English cuisine with a Mediterranean influence is served in the bright, refined restaurant. This is a perfect location to hold your wedding breakfast and also a ceremony. I've been described as a real hidden gem by our guests. Call us and check our excellent reviews.

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Vicki
There're many options for a couple to celebrate the most important celebration of their union. The question is of all options, what is it in a venue that would be most conducive to a perfect wedding. We at Astley Bank deliberated this question and decided that such a venue would provide a beautiful location, gorgeous food and an experience to always remember. Certainly, Astley Bank has all of these, but we all agreed, to care is the most important element and that is our principle.
