Middlethorpe Hall provides a magnificent setting for weddings and receptions, standing in 20 acres of gardens and parkland, which include a fragrant rose and lavender garden a fascinating white garden, a restored 18th century Dovecote and a walled garden.

Kiss in Walled Garden

We are able to offer a variety of wedding packages from the smaller, more intimate wedding party using our Yellow Room over looking the south lawns to a Civil Ceremony in the Barlow Room, followed by wedding breakfast in the Grill Room.

The imaginatively restored 18th century Barlow Room, (named after one of the famous families associated with Middlethorpe Hall) situated fifty yards from the main house, is licensed for marriage ceremonies and is capable of hosting up to 56 people. 

The 18th century Dovecote located in the gardens or the South Terrace is the perfect setting for drink receptions (weather permitting).

The Grill Room which has its own private sitting room is the ideal venue for wedding breakfasts and receptions and is also licensed for marriage ceremonies.

We are able to accommodate a maximum of 56 seated guests for your wedding breakfast, and up to 60 for a stand up fork buffet. If you require music during the ceremony and wedding breakfast, this can be arranged.  Please note that dancing and discos are only available for guests that have exclusive use of the Hall.

To make this special occasion outstanding, you could reserve bedroom accommodation on your wedding eve and make use of Middlethorpe Spa where you can allow yourself to be pampered choosing from a variety of Health and Beauty treatments or maybe a wedding make-over.
