About Crathorne Hall Hotel

Crathorne, Near Yarm, North Yorkshire
North Yorkshire, TS15 0AR

Crathorne Hall is the perfect romantic setting for your wedding day. Formerly the home of Lord and Lady Crathorne, the Hall stands within 15 acres of beautiful woodland overlooking the Leven Valley. Situated in the small North Yorkshire village of Crathorne, still home to the Dugdale family, the hotel lies in quiet countryside between the North Yorkshire Moors and Yorkshire Dales.

We can cater for small intimate gatherings to larger traditional wedding receptions for up to 100 guests or 150 with exclusive use. We also have function rooms licensed for civil ceremonies. There is an air of timeless elegance about the reception rooms all having preserved their traditional Edwardian features. In summer, the French doors are thrown open to the magnificent gardens; in winter bask in the glow of the roaring log fires.

As is only proper to a great house, food and wine form a central part of life at Crathorne. The hotel is proud to have been awarded red star status for the tenth consecutive year. This prestigious accolade means that Crathorne Hall is within the top 200 hotels in England.

Every wedding is uniquely special and we believe your day should reflect this. From the moment you select Crathorne Hall as your wedding venue, our dedicated team will help take care of your arrangements throughout each stage of planning, to help make the process seamless.

On the big day itself, our experienced team will be there to ensure every last detail of your special day is perfect in every way, so you can relax and celebrate with your family and friends.

To keep planning simple we have created several wedding packages to make your day special, but are happy to discuss tailor made options if you have other ideas. Why not be Lord & Lady of the Manor and take over the hall, bedrooms and grounds with our exclusive use wedding packages? Whatever you desire, we have the perfect wedding package for your special day.

A massive thank you to all of the staff at Crathor
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Hope, on 16 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 30 Nov 2018

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to all of the staff at Crathorne. We had the most perfect day and we can’t thank you enough. The venue itself is beautiful but the staff amplified that throughout the day by being so helpful, friendly and tentative. I would especially like to give a big shout out to Mo who made myself and Ben feel at ease all day and made the day run so smoothly.

I just wanted to say how brilliant our day was...

By Mr and Mrs Collins, on 14 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 13 Oct 2018

I just wanted to say how brilliant our day was...from start to finish. It ran perfectly without fault, Mo was fantastic! He did not stop all day and has the patience of a saint. Such a lovely man. Nicola, thank you for all your hard work on the run up to the day. Having someone like yourself really does make the experience of planning a wedding so much easier. Thank you so much for only being an email away. Thanks again to all the staff that helped make our day so special. Mr and Mrs Collins P.s. We've found the perfect place for our Crathorne Bear. What a lovely little touch!!

Everything was fabulous.

By Mother of the Groom, Sue Harris, on 06 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 26 Aug 2018

My son was married here in August, Everything was fabulous, the staff could not do enough for you, from the minute we arrived on the morning of the wedding until when we left the next day. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was superb and of course it goes without saying Crathorne Hall itself is just stunning. We had the best day ever.

We have great memories...

By Brides Parents Mr & Mrs Hyder, on 06 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 21 Jul 2018

We are now back from Malaysia following the second wedding celebrations! I take this opportunity to thank you for your support from day one until the end. Everything was perfect and we have great memories. Kindly also convey our thanks to all of the staff who were very efficient and courteous. The evening was magical.

Crathorne is a special venue...
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Tindle, on 24 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 08 Jul 2018

As an international bride, it was a challenge to plan a wedding long distance. The entire staff at Crathorne Hall made the experience stress-free and helped in every way possible. I appreciated everything you did from finding trusted vendors, giving travel tips, and even finding somewhere to steam my dress after a 10 hour flight. I knew a destination wedding was going to be fun, but Crathorne is a special venue. Every time we turned a corner we found a happy family member or close friend. The entire weekend felt like one big celebration. I will remember this experience in vivid detail for the rest of my life. We will be back for anniversaries time and time again.

The day was beautiful and the staff were amazing..
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Furness, on 12 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 15 Mar 2018

The day was beautiful and the staff were amazing. We could not have wished for a more perfect, stress free day. Gloria was fantastic, and we were looked after by Alicia with afternoon tea, and Jim on the evening with our evening meal. The food was superb and our room and views were amazing. Could not have wished for a more perfect day.

Our wedding day was completely amazing!
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Barker, on 06 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 03 Mar 2018

We just wanted to thank you for making our wedding day completely amazing. From the night before until the day after we had the most unforgettable experience. Thank you all for being so accommodating and friendly. Nathan, thank you for making sure the whole day went without a hitch and for making sure everything was the way we had hoped. Thank you so much to the chef for creating the perfect wedding menu for us. The wedding breakfast was amazing and the tribute to Sam's Mum. The Melanzane was incredible and all of our guests commented on how good this was. Krista thank you for arranging everything and answering all my questions. We cannot think of a better place for us to get married, the setting and staff are fantastic and we were so lucky to get the snow that we did!

It really is a hidden gem...
Venue Service

By Melissa & Philip Middlemiss, on 12 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 08 Sep 2017

Firstly, I wanted to compliment Hand Picked Hotel’s on the beautiful venue you have in Crathorne; it really is a hidden gem and I am sure you are proud to have it as part of the group. It is no surprise that we opted for the popular exclusive use package, including the 37 bedrooms as it would perfectly accommodate our wedding and was great value for money. We loved that we could make full use of the hotel with only our wedding guests there and that the staff could give their full attention to us; this certainly added to the success of the day. Our wedding co-ordinator, Nicola, is experienced and knowledgeable when it comes to planning the big day. Nicola advised us where she could and accommodated our needs throughout the planning process. Nicola was helpful and friendly prior to the wedding and added a nice touch to the day by coming to see the bridal party before the ceremony, to ensure we were happy with everything. I could go on forever how wonderful our wedding was from the exquisite food to the wonderful atmosphere created by all of the staff at Crathorne Hall and we will most certainly be regular visitors, as will our friends and family.

Its the people that count...
Venue Service

By Daniel & Catherine, on 12 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 11 Aug 2017

The team on the day were phenomenal. They went above and beyond to not just make the day perfect, but help reduce the stress. Rather than (lazily) be busy doing what we wanted, they were better than that. They understood what we were after and made sure there were some things handled and done we hadn’t thought of, and without worrying us with it. Fantastic effort, it really was. The place is the stunning, but it’s the people that count.

Everything was absolutely perfect...
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Holland, on 09 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 01 Jul 2017

Everything was absolutely perfect (including the weather!) and we had the most amazing time. I knew we were going to be in good hands but it was everything we wanted and more. We were behind with timings but we weren’t rushed at all which was great, even though I know that obviously the kitchen staff have other events going on too. Nathan was brilliant - he prompted us when things were due to start but when we asked for a little more time, he was more than accommodating. Nothing was ever too much trouble either. We had so many comments that the wedding breakfast was the best wedding food a lot of our guests had ever had. We had no complaints from anyone and guests are still getting in touch now to say that they had a great time. Mr & Mrs Holland xx

Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Parker, on 08 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 25 Feb 2017

Now that we are back from honeymoon and everything has returned to normal, I wanted to say a massive thank you to yourself and all the staff at Crathorne, more making our wedding day on 25th February the absolutely perfect day. Everyone that I spoke to, or communicated with, was hugely professional and helpful in the run up to the wedding. On the day, everything was set up perfectly and the venue looked beautiful. It was exactly as our vision of the venue had been. The reception staff and waiting staff were hugely professional throughout the day. The chef coped amazingly with so many different dietary requirements and all the guests praised the food. And the master of ceremonies (I forget his name, sorry!) was massively helpful in keeping the whole day on track and adapting as the day evolved. Even the breakfast staff the following morning, the operations manager who helped us run a bath(!) and the gardener who helped us with a flat battery were such key parts of our weekend. Every single person helped make our day. We cant thank you all enough. It was a day and a venue that we will never forget. Andy + Jen (Mr and Mrs Parker)

Perfect wedding venue

By Joanna & David Giles, on 01 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 14 Oct 2016

David and I were married and held our wedding reception at Crathorne Hall on 14th October 2016. The day was perfect. The food served for the canapés, wedding breakfast and evening buffet was superb and all our guests commented on how it was the best wedding food they had ever experienced. The staff are so friendly and attentive. The venue is beautiful. Cannot fault the place and would most definitely recommend!
