Full Description
Whether you're looking for somewhere to host an intimate ceremony with a select few or an extravagant celebration for 200, we have the perfect space to host the wedding of your dreams. It won’t take much for you to fall in love with The Farmhouse, a beautiful venue with its own exclusive grounds in the heart of the Beamish Valley. You will approach the 150-year-old stone Farmhouse through a private driveway and gated entrance. After saying ‘I do’ in the stunning ceremony, you can take to the exclusive grounds for drinks and photographs before heading inside the main dining area for a delicious feast. Imaginatively designed with an orangery roof and large windows to allow you and your guests to take in the stunning countryside. As day turns to dusk, gather your guests in a cosy corner of the lounge area with a real log burning fire and plush furniture to relax before the evening party begins. Our spacious and elegant Durham Suite was once a stone stable block and has been sensitively converted into a bright, beautiful space that is ideal for hosting all manner of celebrations. Seating up to 150 guests banquet style, the Durham Suite is flooded with natural daylight and has access to a stunning private garden plus an outdoor 'Tipi Style' seating area with heaters and fur throws available. The Old Barn is separate from the main hotel and is a truly splendid space for celebrations. With wooden floors, original beams, and classic features, this beautiful venue is spacious enough for 200 guests and has a separate area for hosting wedding ceremonies. The perfect venue for smaller weddings up to 45 guests where you can enjoy a personal and unforgettable experience with all your nearest and dearest. The Beamish Barn boasts original wooden beams, rustic wooden floors, natural lighting, and a roaring log fire.

Amazing wedding, simply the best
We had our wedding here on Friday 23rd September 2022. It was absolutely amazing from start to finish. Our wedding coordinator Dean was simply the best. Not a thing went wrong on the day. However the night prior a couple of minor things happened and I must say Dean was amazing straight away he fixed what was needed. The food was outstanding and the staff were all outstanding. I would definitely recommend this to anyone thinking of booking a wedding here ❤️

We have just had our day at the South Causey Inn, in the Durham Suite. Even the rainy weather didn’t spoil the most beautiful venue, we had the perfect day! We had buffet style food which we had amazing feedback on, everyone loved it! The venue did everything for us in our package, including the overall decor, chair/ table sashes, centrepieces, food, DJ and more and everything was perfect! Andrew, our wedding coordinator was the BEST.. for someone who had planned this day within an inch of her life, relinquishing control on the day was not easy. However Andrew was incredible, kept in touch with us all day and he created the most beautiful setting for photos when the weather meant we couldn’t go ahead with outdoor photos. Andrew made sure the day went as smoothly as possible and I felt totally comfortable leaving everything with him, allowing me to just enjoy the day with no stress which I will be forever grateful for! We can’t thank him enough for helping our dreams to come true on our wedding day, thank you so much! ❤️

Fantastic from beginning to end
I booked this venue as soon as I viewed it for our wedding and it didn't disappoint. Every single staff member went above and beyond to ensure we had the best day. The food was outstanding which we knew it would be having ate here before. The wedding team were always available with queries we had. A special mention to our wedding coordinator on the day Dean, he couldn't do anymore if he tried. Not only ourselves who were astounded with him but all our guests too. I could do it all again. Thank you South Causey, you were truly amazing.

Our wedding 💕💕
We got married here at south causey on Saturday (10/9/22) and had the most amazing day, we couldn’t have asked for anything more. From the minute we checked in everything was absolutely perfect 😍 Nothing was too much of an ask, the venue, the food & every single member of staff that we came into contact with was amazing. Now to mention the person that made our wedding day, our wedding co-ordinator Andrew. Nothing was too much trouble for Andrew, he made us laugh, helped us with things we didn’t even think about & made the day go swimmingly. He was amazing with our children & my son definitely has a soft spot for him. I’m gonna hold you to the babysitting offer mind Andrew 🤣🤣🙈 Thank you so much we will never forget how special you made our day 💕💕
