Lartington Hall is a beautifully restored historic wedding venue located in Barnard Castle, Durham. Sitting on a sprawling parkland of 75 acres, this 15th-century building is perfect for those who wish to be enveloped in charm and grandeur when saying “I do”.

Facilities and Capacity

If you decide that you want your happily ever after to take place on this luxurious Grade II-listed estate, you will be spoiled for choice with ceremony and reception options. Experience nature when marrying the one you love in the hall’s outdoor spaces. At the old chapel door, Lartington Hall’s distinctive walls make the perfect backdrop for your first kiss as a married couple. Or, on a bright spring day, walk down the aisle on their perfectly manicured lawns. Taking a look inside, there are many opulent spaces. The grand chapel is ideal for a couple who love the style of a traditional church wedding with high ornate ceilings and stained-glass windows. The drawing room, with its delicate wallpaper and solid oak flooring, is an excellent choice for an intimate ceremony. The tall columns, dazzling chandelier, and marble fireplace of the ballroom would enchant any couple. Afterwards, it would also be the perfect reception hall. With the addition of a dancefloor and a bar, you and your guests can feel like you have been invited to a royal ball for the evening.

If you choose to extend your wedding celebrations to a two or three-day affair, there are many ways to unwind on the grounds.


The award-winning chefs at Lartington Hall pride themselves on creating menus tailored to the guests' specific tastes. No matter the cuisine or serving style, they are happy to design it for you. The flavour and quality of ingredients are incredibly important and the chefs use only the freshest ingredients from the estate’s fields, gardens, and local producers. Their bar is equally top-quality. Premium cocktails, Northeastern cask ales, and an extensive wine menu are all delightfully served by their skilled bartenders.


Exclusive use of Lartington Hall’s 12 fabulously luxurious boutique ensuite bedrooms is afforded to couples and their wedding guests. On the picturesque landscape of the estate, there is also a six-bedroom cottage with its own courtyard and terrace. The interiors of the 17th-century architecture seamlessly combine carefully placed antiques and contemporary touches, such as four-poster beds, traditional roll-top baths, and heated bathroom floors.

Such a beautiful venue!

We decided to book through Apartment Group due to their multiple stunning locations and great last minute deals. Organising our wedding in little over 3 months seemed daunting, however TAG were so helpful from the start, including organising viewings for a few venues, and introducing us to Lartington Hall (which we had never heard about).
The minute we viewed Lartington we knew we had to be married there!
We did have a few hiccups, as the venue redecorated some areas without our knowledge, only one week before our big day, which was a shock, however upon viewing the newly painted chapel and honeymoon suite, we only fell more in love with the venue. It is stunning!

The staff catered to all of our need and wishes, and were so helpful. Especially the team on the day, Josh and Ruth, they were absolutely fantastic, especially given they were short staffed they could not do enough for us! We are so grateful to them for making us feel at ease and having everything under control.

Having the venue from Friday to Sunday was a dream and meant we could spend the entire weekend with our friendly and family.
We would definitely recommend the venue, and TAG, and wish we could do our big day all over again! - Mr and Mrs Mellor.

Lartington Hall Wedding

We booked our wedding with 7 weeks to spare and truly could not have received a better service from the company and the venue! Our day was truly magical and everything we asked for was put in place, no matter how big or small! Down to the finest detail, it was simply stunning. I genuinely could not give enough praise and thanks when it comes to this place! We have recommended to so many people. Our guests complimented absolutely everything and also stated it was simply perfect.
