Full licensed barn to hold civil marriage ceremonies. Holds 100 guests for both the ceremony and the wedding breakfast/reception, with up to 150 guests for the evening do. Courtyard with festoon lighting and heaters to keep guests warm during the colder months. Beautiful gardens and fields, with breath-taking views. Accommodation available on site comprising a cottage and 2 shepherds huts. We pride ourselves on offering a ‘blank canvas' approach. Our ethos is all about creating a relaxing experience for our couples and therefore we never have more than 2 weddings a week. The venue is entirely yours to decorate/customise as you see fit. Our couples love that they can move away from the ‘conveyor belt’ of weddings here, and put their own stamp on everything, resulting in a truly unique day tailored to their passions and personalities.

We held our wedding reception at Howard Court in March 22 - it was perfect in every way. An amazing setting and we couldn't have asked for more from Caroline, Jules and the team, who made the weekend so relaxing and helped make sure everything ran smoothly. Our guests loved it too. We'd definitely recommend.

The venue is stunning
Caroline & Jules were amazing hosts and made our whole wedding experience smooth. From day 1 they were incredibly helpful and well organised. The venue is stunning and it made our photographer very happy to have so many places for photos. Very happy we chose this location to get married. Would certainly recommend!

It's been a long time since we've found a venue that cares as much as this one about EVERYTHING.
As a musician who gets to play many venues, it's been a long time since we've found a venue that cares as much as this one about EVERYTHING. The clients, their guests, their own beautiful space, the food and drinks, the suppliers. The Howard Court team looked after everyone there so well, all night long. I could not recommend them more highly. Get yourselves booked up for this amazingly run family venue before everyone else finds out about it!

They let my dreams become reality
Thank you to the most wonderful team at Howard Court. I had my wedding there on 12th June 2021 and it was everything I imagined and more. They let my dreams become reality and nothing was a problem. The venue is exquisite and has so many hidden treasures, but the staff make this place and I will be forever thankful. I am still on cloud 9!

Everything happens for a reason as my wedding day couldn't have been more perfect
After two cancelled weddings and endless uncertainty, Howard Court and the team restored my faith and reasserted my belief that everything happens for a reason as my wedding day couldn't have been more perfect. The beauty of the barn speaks for itself but the team really bring the dream alive! I secured my date before even viewing the barn purely based on the service and professionalism received from Jules and Caroline when dealing with my enquiries and with only 11 weeks notice they really pulled out all the stops to have the barn looking amazing for our date. It was an absolute privilege to be the first wedding hosted in the fully complete barn and if I hadn't have been told otherwise, I would have assumed the team had been delivering weddings for years. Nothing was too much trouble and their service was genuinely focused around making our day perfect. If you're considering Howard Court for your wedding, do not hesitate. I really feel like we didn't just hire a venue, we received a complete wedding experience and left as friends.

You couldn't wish for a more beautiful setting
You couldn't wish for a more beautiful setting for your big day than Howard Court, a beautiful farmhouse with stunning views of the Yorkshire Moors - I couldn't think of a more perfect place to celebrate. Jules & Caroline went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect and were so helpful and accommodating to all our requests (such as to have llamas!). We are so thankful to Howard Court for our perfect day!

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

A late September wedding that was blessed with an Indian summer heatwave. The amazing weather enabled us to hold our very first outdoor wedding ceremony on the beautiful courtyard. The day was filled with so much love, laughter and happy tears. We loved watching our guests soak up the rays in our stunning grounds, whilst sipping on drinks provided by a rustic horsebox bar and being serenaded by a sax player. Absolute perfection in every way!
