Celebrations at Ampleforth Abbey

Located on the Ampleforth Abbey estate, Windmill House is an ideal location for a small function, event or family gathering.

The interior is beautifully furnished in Robert 'Mouseman' Thompson wood panelling with matching bar and furniture.

The main room will comfortably accommodate 100 people. In the summer the wooden decking can be used as further space for guests or alternatively a marquee can be erected in the garden. The Windmill offers beautiful views of the valley and is wonderful for watching the sun go down. In the winter we can light the fire in the centre of the room to give it a lovely warm atmosphere.


The Windmill is perfect for a child's special day. Capture the moment with some superb backdrops of the Abbey or the Ampleforth Estate. There is a large garden to the rear of the house which is completely enclosed and ideal for allowing children to play outdoors.

Birthday Parties

Whatever the age, the Windmill is perfect for parties. Whether you prefer a quiet afternoon tea partty or something a bit livelier in the evening, we can provide a venue to suit your needs.


We can offer a catering service to meet your needs and budget. Alternatively, if you wish to provide your own caterers this can be arranged also.
