Hornington Manor is a luxurious barn wedding venue set in 300 acres of peaceful countryside, just 20 minutes from the historic centre of York, North Yorkshire. Lovingly restored, this Grade II listed manor house provides an idyllic backdrop to plush country weddings while paying homage to its 1770 roots. From the period charm of the Servants' Quarters to the Victorian stylings of the West Wing, couples will have plenty of choices for their timeless traditional theme.

Facilities and Capacity

Nestled within a working farm, Hornington Manor offers couples pastoral charm and sustainable practices in one elegant setting. Couples will be free to host an outdoor ceremony in a choice of dedicated spaces. The Lych Gate is the venue's most enchanting spot, adorned in pretty flowers and providing ample seating for loved ones. For those who seek more open views, the lawn is just the place with its panoramic scenes of sheep-filled fields and the Manor's impressive facade.

The Russet Barn

Newly launched for Autumn 2022 our Russet Ceremony Barn; the barn features a vaulted ceiling with incredible whalebone, oak framed arches.

The barn began life as home to newborn Spring lambs at Hornington’s farm, now stylishly converted to welcome the birth of new love stories, offering a characterful and unforgettable setting to wedding couples starting a lifetime of happiness together.

The Dining Barn

The dining barn is primed and designed for sophisticated rustic events. This intriguing space has been carefully crafted into a charming blank canvas where wedding couples can fuse their tastes with the building's character. Here, up to 150 seated guests can enjoy a wedding feast before breaking out for a lively reception of up to 200.


The Manor boasts varied accommodation for as many as 60 guests across five unique areas within the Manor house and also eight luxurious ensuite Shepherd Huts set within the grounds.

Services Offered

Hornington Manor is an exclusive-use venue, offering you a blank canvas that allows you to create your bespoke celebration and enjoy the Manor house and gardens, surrounded by your own party of family and friends. You will be given the exclusive use of the Manor and its grounds over a minimum of two nights at weekends to ensure a relaxed, chilled and unhurried stay. Exclusive use midweek weddings are available also with a one-night stay included.

At Hornington Manor, wedding couples will have the assistance of a knowledgeable wedding coordinator from the moment of booking.

Beautiful winter wedding

2 years in the planning and we are so happy with the decision to use Hornington Manor for our wedding weekend! Exclusive use of the grounds was wonderful, the guests loved the lounges ans hot tubs and the ceremony barn was beautiful! Wish we could go back and do it all over again!

Best Day ever - Team Hornington Rock

From our first visit to Hornington to the big day itself we are so happy that we booked this venue. Joanne and the team made the whole process easy and took away any stress. Easy to deal with, quick to answer questions, and most questions or things we wanted to do were met with a yes we will do that. Planning a wedding can be stressful but Hornington too the stress away.

Best day ever!

We chose Hornington Manor for our wedding at the end of April this year, and honestly could not have been happier. We literally had the best day ever, and everything went so well!

The venue is gorgeous, the grounds fantastic, so many compliments about the manor house and the bedrooms etc. And of course, all the staff are super friendly and attentive.

We'd absolutely recommend it to anyone for their wedding or special event!

We had the most amazing day

Abbie and the team at Hornington made our day so perfect. The whole weekend was beautiful and if I had any questions or worries through the process Abbie was there to help. The venue is just the most stunning and makes the most beautiful pictures. Thank you for everything

Making our day the BEST!

We got married at Hornington Manor March 22, after postponing from 2021 due to covid restrictions. From the time of booking back in 2019, right the way up to the day, we couldn’t have asked any more from Joanne and the Team who were so professional, friendly, efficient and damn right amazing! I touched base with Joanne regularly, and was always greeted with a warm welcoming smile and we really felt like although the team and the venue were always so busy, we felt like they were there for us only because they made the experience so personal and made us feel so valued. The only negative is that now our wedding is over we can’t drop in and visit like we used to and get to experience the magic of our wedding day again! Truly the best day of our lives and we couldn’t have done it without the amazing team at Hornington. Thank you!
