A house where time stands still, this romantic property has a wonderful history, which it cradles gently on its solid Yorkshire foundations.  Today it is a wonderfully stylish private home, which offers the ideal setting for an exclusive party or celebration.

Located in a lovely Yorkshire village, the rooms combine the latest in technology with a traditional feel. There are grand Jacobean rooms with ornate carved ceilings, huge open fireplaces and beautifully bright bay windows overlooking acres of meticulous colourful gardens. It feels so secure and robust in its setting it’s hard to imagine modern day life is continuing only a few miles away.

The property is ideal for a private party or romantic country wedding.  The dining room features an impressive 18ft dining table for a memorable occasion.  Seat your guests around the table in the sparkling candle-light and dine on delicious cuisine, using the finest local produce and herbs from the Kitchen Garden.

The library is a charming area for afternoon tea, relaxing with a drink or even dancing.  The rooms work well here for an intimate celebration, allowing guests to use the entire house and mix and match the uses of the different rooms.  From small meetings to private dinners to larger scale weddings this venue works on a variety of levels.

Overnight guests have a choice of beautifully appointed bedrooms named after the families who have lived here.  Rooms have individual designs and special features, for example the master suite has an 8ft four poster bed, and a sunken whirlpool bath under one of the bay windows, so visitors can lie back in the bubbles admiring the views. It also has a 150 inch cinema screen and projector with surround sound.

Whether you want to party into the night, relax in the house, or make the most of the days in the surrounding countryside, this property can offer you a sanctuary from modern day pressures.

The owners can help with details of shooting, fishing and horse-riding and it’s an ideal stop on a classic car tour.  For timeless elegance, this is the venue.
