Some people spend a long time looking for the perfect venue for their wedding – others are lucky enough to already know about Hornington Manor.

If you’re not yet in on the secret, let us set the scene for you.

Arriving at Hornington Manor

Picture yourself driving through breathtakingly beautiful scenery in the heart of North Yorkshire, a short hop from the historic city of York and close to the picturesque village of Bolton Percy. You turn off a country road and there, before you, is Hornington Manor. A beautiful 18th-century Grade II listed manor house, lovingly restored and decorated in a clean, fresh, contemporary style with the luxurious finish that 21st century visitors would expect.

A wedding day to remember
If you’re looking for a DIY wedding venue in Yorkshire, you’ve come to the right place.

Unlike many wedding venues, Hornington Manor offers the flexibility for you to design your own bespoke wedding day.

Location location location
Celebrate your special in the recently renovated wedding barn, a stunning space with wooden beams and integral bar.

Decorated with flowers and set in a sun-drenched courtyard with the Manor house as a backdrop, the Lych Gate is a popular spot for civil ceremonies. Alternatively, you could choose from a variety of other outdoor locations with uninterrupted views over the grounds.

For winter weddings or if you prefer an indoor location, there’s the wedding barn, the grand backdrop of the West Wing Ballroom or the Hornington Gallery, with far-reaching views over the Yorkshire landscape.

Planning your wedding
Whether you have already made plans or would like a little help, we have dedicated staff with extensive experience on hand to ensure your day runs smoothly.

You are welcome to source your own wedding photographer, flowers, decorations and other suppliers, or select from our list of recommended contacts. Either way, our friendly, approachable staff will offer you all the support you need.

Staying over
“The accommodation is lovely and very well equipped.”

“A little piece of Yorkshire that’s just so magical.”

“Hornington Manor was the perfect venue for the wedding we wanted.”

Just a taste of the wonderful feedback we’ve received from guests about the Hornington Manor and our wedding services.

Since 2009 when the manor house was purchased, it has been lovingly refurbished to a first-class standard. Our guests often comment on the attention to detail and quality of the décor and furnishings, from the well-equipped kitchens and the cosy living and dining spaces to the luxurious bedrooms – all of which are decorated in plush contemporary fabrics and colours, with a high-quality bespoke bed as the centrepiece.

All of our wedding parties will have the house for a three-day weekend so that they can set up the day before and enjoy a relaxing run up to their wedding.

Yorkshire landscape setting
Another element that makes the venue extra special is the setting – with its stunning views over the Yorkshire countryside.

The Manor House is set in 300 acres of woodland, protected hedgerows, pasture and arable land. Here, sheep are raised and crops are grown to provide Yorkshire wool, hemp fibres, flax and lavender destined for the bespoke handmade beds made by the family firm, Harrison Spinks.

Sustainability is key – we even use by-products for the biomass boiler that heats the Manor House.

Other options
In addition to being a fabulous wedding venue, the flexibility of Hornington Manor means that it is also the perfect place for conferences and corporate events.

So what are you waiting for? Come and discover this unspoiled corner of Yorkshire for yourself.
