Perfect for all your guests

The Hall

The 17th Century Hall has been gently adapted with flooring, lighting, heating and a clear ceiling so that the rustic ruin stands proud. It means that the large space can be used for a Civil Ceremony, Drinks Reception or the Wedding Breakfast! We can add in a bar and there is space for caterers to use. We can also offer advice on layout and organise the furniture you would like so making it simple to plan yet perfect for your style.

The Gardens

The gardens add to this stunning location. Imagine taking time to wander in the Faerie Glen or sit on the terrace while taking in your wonderful celebration, full of friends and family. The restoration has included recovering the Stream Walk, building the Pig Palace and creating a path to Captains Seat and the secret Princess face. Intrigued?


Take a walk, enjoy the space

Take a walk, enjoy the space

From Spring 2016, the Hall and Carriage House will be registered for Civil Ceremonies. There is also the stunning St.Cuthbert's just up the road, walking distance from the gardens, who are happy to discuss your upcoming nuptials (available for any Christian denomination, by arrangement with the Rector). 


Any style celebration

There is even space for guest camping if they want to really take in the Kirklinton atmosphere! If not, we have special rates with local hotels available too.

Other Elements

On hand is an experienced wedding planner to advise on other elements. They can also help find you the right local suppliers, some of whom are on our recommended list. You will need to source a caterer, music, transport etc but we will work with them to ensure the location works for them. For more details, please get in touch.  


For exclusive use of the Hall and Gardens for a weekend, prices start at £2,060. We can organise any element that you dont wish to and create the perfect package.  The venue comes with outdoor furniture, space for caterers, power & water access, a disabled loo, children's play area and use of the yurt! This elegant, atmospheric site can be adapted to suit you and ensure a truly unique and memorable event. 

For your celebration, you can add your own style and personality to the Hall. Its a rustic, grand blank canvas with experienced wedding professionals to hand if required. 

First step is dropping us a line and sorting a tour!

We respect that everyone envisages their wedding day differently and so we will do what we can to work with you.
