Broughton Hall Visit

June 07, 2016  •  1 Comment

Just a quick blog post today to tell you about the gorgeous Broughton Hall Estate, which I visited today with Patricia from Posh Frocks Bridal Shop and Becky of The Travelling Tea Ladies

Broughton Hall is an historic country house on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, which you can hire for two nights for your wedding celebrations. It has fifteen en suite rooms for your guests to stay in, alongside a Grade i Listed Hall, a beautiful conservatory and amazing grounds, where a marquee can be erected. If you hire Broughton Hall, you have exclusive use of the house for the duration of your stay. It is incredibly grand, dates back to 1597 and has been in the same family for 900 years! I honestly couldn't imagine a more perfect venue for a traditional wedding - if Period Dramas are your thing, Broughton is your venue! It's perfect for an intimate, formal wedding.

Also within the 3000 acre Estate are two other venues. Utopia is is beautiful, contemporary event space, set within a traditional walled garden. It has a timber frame and floor to ceiling windows, allowing you to soak in the gorgeous views. It also has a large terrace area, which seamlessly blends the inside with the out. Utopia is suited to a more modern, relaxed wedding and can seat up to eighty guests for your wedding blessing/reception and a further forty for your evening celebration. If you are looking for a venue with a contemporary feel, but with a backdrop of beautiful countryside, then Utopia is the venue for you.

Finally, Eden is a six bedroom house within the grounds. A converted barn, Eden offers modern comforts in a traditional setting. The decor is fab - lots of 1950's and 60's furniture, very modern-retro (if that is even a term?!). A marquee can be erected in the gardens and your guests can even camp/glamp in the grounds - perfect for a festival style wedding! 

Although the venues are not licensed for civil weddings, there is a Roman Catholic chapel on the grounds, a church of England church nearby and Skipton Registry Office is also not far away. 

I didn't take any photos (other than of the resident peacock!), but if you click the Broughton Hall link in the first line, there are many images on their website. Take a look - you won't be disappointed!

Gorgeous day for a visit to this idyllic setting. I liked that from the Eden house garden you had a 360 degree view of hills, trees and rolling lawns. Would love to do a tea-party in this venue.
Thanks to Rebecca and Broughton Hall for a lovely lunch too! Hope to return and reciprocate with some tea and cake before too long!
