We have a licence for a civil ceremony for the spacious Library on the ground floor, which enjoys beautiful views over the surrounding parkland, and also has access to the garden via a French window and a ramp for wheelchair access.
There is also the medium sized Panelled Room and the intimate Lister Room which is in the turret, these rooms are both on the first floor with views over the gatehouse and sweeping drive .
The seating capacities for a ceremony, allowing for space for the Registrar’s table, are as follows:
The Library: 100
The Panelled Room: 65
The Lister Room: 10
There is also the option of using Samuel’s restaurant for the ceremony, which would seat 120. This would apply in the case of an exclusive use wedding, and a marquee would need to be erected to seat this number for dinner.
Please note that the Registrar’s costs for attending the ceremony are in the region of £350 – £450 (depending on it being mid-week, weekend or Bank Holiday). Booking the Registrar is the responsibility of the Bride and Groom, which needs to be done at the earliest opportunity, and at least several weeks notice of the ceremony have to be given. If you would like to contact the Registrar, the office is at County Hall, Northallerton and their number is 01609 780780 ext 2602.
We also have a licence for hosting Baby Naming Ceremonies at the hotel, and we can organise the ceremony and celebrations for you. Unfortunately we are unable to book the Registrar on your behalf, this is something you will need to organise (contact details are given below).
We have a special package available for this type of event (see details below), but we are also very happy to cater for any particular requirements. Please do not hesitate to contact Hannah Hinchcliffe (01765 680971, email@example.com) if you would like to know more about our Baby Naming Ceremonies.
£40 per person (minimum group size 6 guests)
Please note this figure does not include the Registrar’s costs. For further details please contact County Hall, Northallerton (01609 780780 ext 2602)

Thank goodness the sun has now come out and we seem to have finally put winter behind us! The Parkland has burst into bloom with clouds of blossom and a colourful carpet of daffodils and bluebells around the trees.
The Walled Garden is also getting going, with bright tulips swaying in the breeze and home grown asparagus bursting forth. Asparagus is at its most delicious when eaten closest to home, so dishes featuring home-grown asparagus are now on all our menus, including the bar and lounge. The garden furniture is out and soon it will be time for afternoon teas on the lawn and evening drinks on the terrace at sunset. English summertime at it’s best.
