Hazlewood Castle is steeped in a history of Kings and Knights and was first mentioned in 1086 in the Domesday Book. The Castle served as a maternity hospital during the Second World War (and afterwards until 1953) and as a retreat for the Carmelite Friars from 1971 until 1996. In 1997 Hazlewood Castle was sensitively restored and converted into a fabulous destination, offering luxury accommodation, stunning grounds and an award-winning restaurant. Outdoor activities and a relaxing day spa can also be enjoyed, all with excellent service that makes every event a truly memorable occasion.
In a fabulous location, only 20 minutes from the historic City of York and cosmopolitan City of Leeds and surrounded by beautiful countryside, Hazlewood Castle is a truly unique venue for the wedding of your dreams.
To make your dreams come true, we have created a selection of individual and elegant reception rooms, several which are licensed for civil ceremonies. Additionally, St. Leonard’s Chapel provides an impeccable church setting for blessings with excellent acoustics.
Every wedding day is a once in a lifetime experience and we strive to make each occasion as individual as you are.
The Great Hall
This spectacular, South-facing room, overlooking the stunning view of Towton Moor, is medieval at its boldest with classical inspiration, great columns, a marble fireplace, alcoves framing large statues, and a high ceiling where oval medallions decorated with over fifty coats of armour encircle the room; all this makes for a day in history with your wedding breakfast celebration in The Great Hall for up to 130 guests.
The Old Dining Room
East of the Great Hall, the natural daylight, exquisite fireplace, Adam’s work frieze and ceiling dominate this room. The elegance of The Old Dining Room will enhance any civil ceremony, receiving line or intimate wedding breakfast. The Old Bar adjoins with its stunning Oak bar and polished Oak floor making this perfectly situated for your sole use during your event.
The Woodland Venue
We have applied all our experience looking after couples here on their special day and developed a unique outdoor Woodland Wedding Venue complete with Giant Hat Tipis that we believe will exceed the expectations of those looking for something nearer to nature and simply unique. Our Woodland Pagoda set deep within the woods is licensed for civil ceremonies which gives everything you need for your special day! Featuring a tree bar, fire pits, dj booth, barn dancefloor the Woodland Venue is a fantastic festival style venue!
