About

Up to 100 Guests

This magnificent Tudor-Jacobean stately home dates back to the 1500s and is steeped in history and romance. It is fittingly described as the Hampton Court of the North being the birthplace of the notorious Lord Darnley, husband of Mary, Queen of Scots. The House is set within a Capability Brown landscape of stunning parkland, formal gardens and intimate lakesides.

For your day choose from three exquisite rooms, to suit either a large or more intimate celebration; The Great Hall, The Dining Room or the Still Room. We can ensure grandeur, beauty and something unique for your perfect day. You will have exclusive use of the main central courtyard and grand entrance into the House as well as the South Terrace overlooking the park all of which provide stunning backdrops for unique photo opportunities.

The extensive grounds are available for marquee receptions and the Walled Garden Marquee is a beautiful location for a wedding breakfast and party for up to 180 guests. The accommodation offers a stylish fully furnished reception area, a contemporary bar which leads into the spacious dining and dance floor area.

Call us to arrange an informal show round with one of our wedding co-ordinators.

    Despite everything, it was perfect

    We are so glad we choose Temple Newsam as our ceremony venue, and couldn't have asked more of them particularly given the ongoing pandemic. Despite the restrictions, we had a day to remember, which was seamless.
    The venue is exquisite and looks incredible at every angle. We've had many compliments at just how stunning it is (and it is as good in real life as it is in photos).
    But choosing a venue isn't just about the setting - the staff are crucial. And we couldn't recommend the staff at Temple Newsam any more highly. They have been professional, courteous and understanding. Ian has a calming effect and when he didn't know the answer he went above and beyond to find out - just what any couple needs, but in particular when rearranging a wedding due to COVID. Nothing is too much trouble for the team, we even made changes on the morning. They are easy to contact, understanding and talked us through a very challenging decision to move with honesty and openness. Ian worked closely with the registrars to get the answers we needed, when we needed them.
    Thank you Ian and team Temple Newsam! Cannot recommend the venue and team more highly.

    Best day Ever Testimonial!!!

    Temple Newsam will always be a special place for us - we literally had the perfect day!! It has everything you could possible want in a venue; history, a great hall, courtyard, veranda overlooking a fountain, garden and a luscious carpeted drinks reception room! Our guests faces lit up as they entered the hall to be seated and they floated around the hall and veranda holding prosecco afterwards - they were absolutely beaming and so were we! We were inundated with comments about 'how beautiful everything was' (I think a lot of people thought it cost more than it did), Ultimately we got married in a beautiful house surrounded by a beautiful garden and a bunch of incredible awed guests and we have the most amazing pictures to remember the day - we would change nothing!! Even months later people are still talking about it!! There are a lot of venues out there but I wanted to leave this review because I felt that the staff at Temple Newsam really treated us like we were 'special' - they were prompt, reliable and incredibly organized. We didn't lift a finger. They made sure everything ran so smoothly that it was seamless. From initial booking to the day we never had to chase and felt that everything was completely under control. And at the other side now of preparing for a wedding you NEED to know your venue are sound!

    Perfect

    Every part of our civil partnership went as well as it could have thanks to the staff at Temple Newsam. The house felt like our own as we were allowed to move freely between rooms among beautiful antiques without ever feeling we were in a museum being watched. Wonderful caterers, florists and hotels in the area meant everything we wanted was easy to perfect and guests well catered for. Will never be able to thank Temple Newsam enough for helping us put it all together and regularly telling me to relax!
