It was a favourite residence of Richard III and Henry VIII also owned it. steeped in 600 years of royal history. Located just 25 minutes north of York in the quaint village of Sheriff Hutton. The truly magical 600 year old Sounding Hall has a licence for 58 people and the huge courtyard is a spectacular back drop for a photographs while your guest take in the stunning ruins with a drink in hand. We also have accommodation on site for 4 couples (residents have use of the courtyard during their stay) with more accommodation in walking distance. The local village hall, 5 minutes walk away also hosts receptions which is an option for a smaller budget but still allows you to have time at the castle during your ceremony.

At a wedding a bacon butty, at home tea and biscuits.

The Castle!

Our luxury loo block (a converted Shepherd's Hut) -random I know but it looks lovely outside and inside which is quite rare from what I've seen.
