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.

New Years Eve Wedding
I could not recommend South Causey enough for how they treated me, my new wife (and all our family and friends) at our Wedding this New Years Eve. Andrew is an absolute asset to the business he co-ordinated every aspect of the wedding to perfection and honestly it was the best day of our lives because of YOU Andrew! And of course your wonderful team. It was a pleasure getting to know you. All of our guests commented on how perfect our day was in every possible way.

Andrew and the team at South Causey were absolutely amazing in making our day perfect from start to finish. I actually don't know what I would have done without him! The whole team were fantastic and the venue is just fabulous. Our guests and us had such a brilliant time and made lifelong memories to cherish, thanks to everyone for their hard work and contribution to our special day.

Wedding in the Old Barn
Such a special place for such a special day, we got married at South Causey back in October on what can only be described as the wettest day going. From driving up the day before and looking at the beautiful colours of the gardens and surroundings I could not wait to get the most perfect photographs.

The best day of our lives.
We couldn’t recommend South Causey enough…. The Farmhouse was perfect for our wedding and the wedding team are amazing, especially Stacey, she is an absolute Diamond. Nothing was too much for her and she made sure our day went without a glitch. We had the most amazing of our lives and our wedding was everything we hoped for. All our guests have said how much of a great time they had, how beautiful the venue is and how outstanding the food was. We will be forever grateful to South Causey, the wedding team and Stacey for all their help leading up to and on our big day!♥️

The BEST day!
We can’t believe how amazing our day was. From the second we booked the South Causey have been amazing - even during covid when we had to rearrange our wedding date. The communication was always amazing. The staff couldn’t of been more helpful, especially our wedding coordinator Andrew. Our 3 course buffet was unbelievable. We really couldn’t fault our day.
