Hazlewood Castle Hotel

The feel

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 afterward 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 the 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!

St Leonard’ Chapel

Built in 1286. St Leonard’s Chapel is situated to the East of the Castle, complete with a Palladian altarpiece, fine fretwork, and glass decorated with symbols of passion. With its own piano, The Chapel offers an ambiance conducive to larger gatherings with superb acoustics and a gallery. A perfect setting for your blessing.

The Victoria Room

Located in the far South West of the Castle, with its hooded stone fireplace, panelled woodwork, Grade I listed metallic wallpaper and dual aspect with natural light. This room is splendid for the smaller, more intimate, civil ceremonies.

The Clear Garden Marquee

We have our very own “clear” Garden Marquee nestled on our lawn overlooking the Castle, next to our cherry tree avenue and our wedding Pagoda.
In the spring and summer, it is truly beautiful. Perfect for larger wedding reception up to 450 guests.
