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.

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.
