The Hovels at Harewood is a grade II listed stable block conversion based in the heart of the Harewood Estate, surrounded by beautiful unspoiled Yorkshire countryside and protected parkland teeming with native wildlife.
The building has been redeveloped in recent years, combining original and new features: stone, wood, glass, and steel; the old and the new working together in perfect harmony.
The Hovels at Harewood is ideal for a wide range of private events with a capacity of 80 seated or 120 standing guests.
If guest numbers are higher, a large south-facing field adjacent to the building can be used as a marquee site.
The building tends to appeal to those looking for somewhere a little bit different, a rustic yet refined venue ideal for holding an intimate event.

Located in Leeds, West Yorkshire, The Hovels at Harewood offers an elegant venue for weddings and other special occasions.

Amazing venue, brilliant team- best day ever!

Our experience getting married at The Hovels was everything we could have ever wanted. We did all our organising with Josh who is absolutely incredible. We had ‘stages’ of planning where we narrowed down food & drink options (canapés, meals, evening food, reception drinks, table drinks, options to serve at the bar), which enabled us to gradually arrive at the right combinations for us. The food is absolutely beautiful and it’s so special that most of it is sourced from the estate. Our wedding was May, and a gorgeous day- the venue allowed our ‘minimal’ look/ approach, and the natural beauty of the venue and grounds to really shine. We used the stretch tent which added some shade and a nice atmospheric touch, as well as The Hovels own furniture. We didn’t need to add much at all! We chose to hire a crazy golf course which worked well there. We couldn’t have been happier with our wedding- setting up the day before and the whole process was just so fun with Josh & the team. He was in touch regularly with ideas and thoughts based on what we’d discussed. The menu tasting is also a lovely, really special experience!

We also stayed at Harewood Holidays which was really special, again Felicity and the team were so helpful with our cottage bookings and changing these/ advising us as required about best combinations and options to suit our needs. It made a really special place to get ready for the wedding, and to spend time there afterwards!

Just perfect - unique - personal and professional

The day was perfect thanks to the team. Despite how hot you all must have been it went so smoothly! We could see all the hard work going on but you seemed so organised, calm and ready for any tiny last minute changes. Even remembering the tiny details like limoncello shots for us whilst we hid away! The guests positive feedback we’ve had on the venue, staff, food and drink, is never-ending. Also, Emma’s family were so comfortable that their food was completely safe to eat, thanks to the team regarding the GF celiac options.

We could write paragraphs of praise.
