Full Description
  • Danby Castle is our home, so every wedding is close to our hearts. This means you receive a totally different level of service and flexibility compared to a traditional 'hotel wedding'. We offer great 'homecooked' food and believe in a proper portion, no one ever leaves a wedding here hungry! Also cooking from scratch means we can accommodate all dietary requirements too. The Castle and ruins are simply perfect for your ceremony and photos, the lawns are great for games and fun - especially if you are a bride who wants to race space hoppers! We provide giant Jenga and Connect 4 to help your guests have fun. We coordinate the day for you, meaning you have no worries so you can simply relax and enjoy your wedding day. Quite simply our ethos is that we strive to ensure you have the best day of your life and your guests leave saying it was the best wedding they have ever been to.

    Hello! Danby Castle is our family home and we truly believe we offer a totally different 'feel' of wedding here.

So if you are looking for exclusive use, a relaxed and stunning environment then please do come and see us! Carolyn, Phil, Max and the rest of the team
