Facilities and Capacity

Kilnsey Park caters to weddings of almost any size. From small and intimate to grand and lavish, couples can enjoy a celebration exactly as they imagined it. Couples can exchange vows outdoors in the peaceful rural tranquillity of Ceremony Field. This idyllic outdoor space is flanked by apple trees and features a hand-crafted oak pagoda that provides the perfect centrepiece for unforgettable wedding ceremonies. Just a short walk from Ceremony Field lies River Meadow. This beautiful space sits on the banks of the River Wharfe and features spectacular views of the Great Whernside mountain to the east and the Kilnsey Crag to the west. Here, couples can erect marquees, yurts, or tipis and enjoy a wedding reception surrounded by wildflowers and birdsong. The area can accommodate up to 180 overnight guests who will be treated to the most awe-inspiring views of starry skies as they dance the night away. There is also a licensed barn on the estate for those seeking a smaller, more intimate wedding venue.

Kilnsey Park offers various services that couples can tailor to their needs. A dedicated wedding coordinator will ensure each celebration is as seamless as it is unforgettable. The venue is fully licensed to hold humanist ceremonies, so there is no need for a registry office. Outside vendors are welcome, and the team can provide a list of local suppliers if needed. Accommodation is available onsite, and in addition to the camping meadow, the venue has several traditional stone cottages available. Kilnsey Park holds a Green Tourism Gold accreditation for sustainability, and the team prides themselves on their environmentally responsible approach. The venue is also pet friendly, so couples can even enjoy the company of their furry friends on their date with destiny.
