Full Description
  • After it became an authorised venue, we have started offering wedding breaks at Melmerby Hall over the last year or so but have not started to advertise this on a wider scale basis and we do not have a standard brochure, nor are we really sure that we would like to have such a thing, as we do not see ourselves as offering a set of standard wedding packages. We do not anticipate becoming a major commercial wedding venue preferring instead to remain more personal and smaller scale in terms of numbers of weddings. We offer wedding breaks with a minimum of a three night stay at Melmerby Hall and do not offer single night bookings. Melmerby Hall is 5* rated by Visit England and has also won a Gold Award for outstanding quality in all areas, particularly with respect to guest service.  The Hall accommodates 18 guests in nine bedrooms and, together with its adjoining three bedroom cottage called Stag Cottage, 24 guests may be accommodated in 12 ensuite bedrooms. We also have another cottage set within the former walled orchard garden of Melmerby Hall called Kirkbride Hall which has another four double bedrooms allowing a total of 32 guests to be accommodated at Melmerby Hall and its cottages. We have an archery lawn in the gardens which is well suited to a marquee or tipis. Smaller parties can be easily accommodated in the four main reception rooms all of which interconnect (the Georgian Drawing Room, the oak panelled Library, the formal Dining Room and the family Living Room). Melmerby Hall is set within 25 acres of our private woodland & is walking distance to the village of Melmerby which has our local pub, The Shepherd's Inn, a village shop, a little antiques shop and The Old Village Bakery which serves breakfasts, lunches, coffees, homemade bread and cakes and has a lovely ladies fashion, interior and gift shop upstairs called 'Hollberrie' which is definitely worth a visit to support local independent retailing!
