Completed in 2015, The Garden Rooms is a truly unique and breath-taking venue in a beautiful setting amongst the rolling hills of the Yorkshire Dales. Combining stunning architecture and the latest interior design, The Garden Rooms is a graceful, iconic setting in which to create a wedding day like no other.

Our vision was to create a venue where every Bride could create their very own ‘one of a kind’ day. We have taken our inspiration from French Chateaux and Mediterranean architecture to create The Garden Rooms and The Cloisters and from traditional and formal to rustic and relaxed it is a venue where the only limit is your imagination.

The Garden Rooms is the epitome of French elegance and glamour. It provides a stunning setting for your wedding celebration; with breath-taking high ceilings, crystal chandeliers and huge gilt mirrors, the Garden Rooms is a statement venue like no other. Made up of four different rooms, each can seat separate parties of up to 260 or can be seamlessly brought together to create an awe inspiring venue for 760 guests.

The Cloisters draws on designs used to build monastic houses which are still found in the hill top villages in France and Italy. The result is an exclusive, atmospheric and secluded space that captures the essence of the Mediterranean; with warm rustic stone arches and open beams surrounding a warm sunny courtyard. In summer, beautiful plants and outdoor fountains complete the scene whilst in chillier months, fire pits and fairy lighting create an intimate feel your guests will love. For up to 120 guests.

Private Dining For smaller wedding parties of up to 40, our completely self contained Private Dining is an away from it space. Warm colours and contemporary furnishings are complemented by traditional pieces to create a relaxing atmosphere. The outdoor terrace is a great place for al fresco drinks and taking in the Yorkshire scenery.

Our first meeting was with Paul (General manager) who showed us around and went through all our options and customised our quote as we wanted a bit of each package, he was lovely to deal with and explained everything well, after that we dealt with Angela and Natalie who were both excellent and accommodating and offered great advise, the attention to detail was excellent and always quickly responding to emails and calls. On the day all the staff couldn't of been more helpful and attentive a stand out member of staff was Ned he was very professional, made sure we got our canapés during photos, a thank you to Paul for looking after both groom and bridal party and making sure we had all we needed and even giving my parents a lift at the end of the night.
The food was excellent, lived up to what we had at our tasting session and was tweaked as we asked. We had lots of compliments about every part of the day the venue, staff and food.
The day couldn't of exceeded our expectations any more we couldn't recommended them any more.

An excellent venue for a perfect day

We had a fantastic wedding at The Garden Rooms and I would recommend it to everyone as a perfect venue.

From start to finish everyone at Tennants was polite, courteous and helpful. The attention to detail and help and guidance through the planning process was invaluable. They listened to our views and helped to guide us through, therefore this allowed us to plan the wedding that WE wanted and not a carbon copy of 'what they do'. They did everything that they promised and more to make us all relaxed and comfortable, again through the planning process and on the day.

The room was set up perfectly and looked absolutely amazing. The rooms are beautiful in their own right but are neutral enough to lend themselves to any appropriate theme. They had set up all of the tables with an expert attention to detail and it was faultless. The food was exquisite, it is the only word which can be used. It was delicious and far above the standard you would expect at a run of the mill wedding. The organisation was there behind the scenes but did not feel imposed and the day flowed perfectly.

All in all this was a fantastic venue, with brilliant service and perfect food. Highly recommended

Perfect wedding reception venue.

My wife and I were lucky enough to have our wedding reception at Tennants Garden Rooms. From the first meeting right through to the last guests leaving, Alannah and the whole team were extremely friendly, professional and attentive. Alannah was so personable as if it was her own wedding day and we can’t thank her enough for all her hard work and calmness. We would recommend Tennants Garden Rooms to anyone thinking about the perfect wedding reception venue.

An amazing venue for the happiest day of our lives

An amazing venue for the happiest day of our lives...
We could not have wished for a better day and can't thank The Garden Rooms enough for everything they did.
Pre wedding meetings were very professional and personal and gave us confidence that we had picked our dream venue.
From start to finish staff at The Garden Rooms could not have done more for us. They listened to exactly what we wanted, delivering all aspects perfectly.
Everything from the excellent menu devised by ourselves with welcomed input from the brilliant Alannah and Lee, to the assistance and coordination of our chosen photographer.
A really upmarket venue coupled with professional staff made for an incredible day with absolutely no faults.
An unforgettable experience that we will always hold dear to us.
Thanks you for making our wedding day so special!
