What can we say? Our experience of kirklinton has been amazing from start to finish. Right from our very first visit on a gloomy February morning we fell in love with the place. We have loved our little visits on a Sunday afternoon planning our wedding, talking to the ladies in the shop. Annabel has been great with her advice throughout the planning process and especially on the day itself. We can honestly say some of our guests were left speechless by kirklinton, especially as they were very unsure about what kind of a wedding they were coming to. So many people have told us how amazing the day was, how it really was a wedding they would remember for all the right reasons and how the venue ‘came alive’ at night. As much as we loved our wedding day we were actually really sad when we packed up on the Sunday as we would have no more excuses to pop up so often on a nice Sunday afternoon. Thank you Annabel and Kirklinton for a truly amazing experience!

Where to start…

-    Firstly, come for a tour as words and photographs won’t show the scale or atmosphere. We can organise these meetings for evenings and weekends. Just drop us an email

-    Next decide how much you would like to organise yourself – furniture, décor etc. We can assist with as many details as you need and just add them to your package.

We had the best day ever! The hall was just a million times better then I had ever imagined! I knew it would be good but not that good! We just kind of wish we could go back and attend as guests as well to have the full experience! It was such a fabulous whirl wind!
The yurt was super cosy and comfortable we will certainly be back, maybe for an anniversary! The log fire was just a perfect end!
Annabel & The Team were also absolutely amazing, we felt we could just totally relax not check the clock and someone would keep us in line! You were a complete stars and we can’t thank you enough for all your help and advice before and on the day!
— Rebecca & Simon

-    Finally, speak to the team, get your queries answered and book your date! A deposit will be required then payments throughout planning so helping with your budgeting. 


The Hall

The 17th Century Hall has been gently adapted with flooring, outside lighting, patio style heating and a bright ceiling so that the rustic ruin stands proud. It means that the large space can be used for a ceremony, drinks reception or the wedding breakfast or all of those elements.

The Gardens

The extensive gardens add magnificent variety to this stunning location. Imagine taking time to wander in the Faerie Glen or sitting 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 Rose Maze and creating a path to Captains Seat and the secret Princess face. Intrigued? Much more is planned including a Rabbit Warren!



If you like something quirky, how about staying in our Yurt on your wedding night? It’s equipped with a log burner, mini kitchen and comfy beds. There is even space for guest camping including shower facilities if they want to really take in the Kirklinton atmosphere! If not, we have details for local hotels or try Hotels Combined.

Kirker’s Bar

Our wooden bar comes with helpful staff, ready to greet guests and make sure they have a wonderful time in the ruins. We endeavour to supply a variety of drinks including soft drinks. We are happy to ensure certain drinks are available if you supply a list in advance as we know everyone has different tastes! There are drinks packages available from £10 per guest and adaptable to your tastes.


The Hall and Carriage House are 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).

Other Elements

As a truly DIY venue, you will have the freedom of choosing your own catering, lighting, décor, etc. but if required we will work with each supplier to ensure your plans and ideas are brought to life. Each package includes peace of mind as an experienced Wedding Planner will be on hand to make sure that your plan of the day is on track, without you having to ponder or worry. We also include a consultation before the day to make sure we know your plans and expectations properly. We can offer advice on layout, managing the space on the day and the furniture or décor you would need, making it simple to plan yet perfect for your style.


For exclusive use of the Hall and Gardens for a weekend, prices start at £3,960. We can organise any element that you dont wish to and create the perfect package.  The venue comes with outdoor furniture, space for caterers, loos & showers, children's play area, camping field 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.
