As far as the venue goes, totally 5/5
As far as the venue goes, totally 5/5. My wife and I absolutely love the place. All the staff are great people, very helpful, and we probably couldn't have asked for a better coordinator than Sophie to help organise our special day.
The food was amazing all weekend. On the Friday our groomsmen and bridesmaids joined us for a meal which was from the á la carte menu which was stunning. Our wedding was on the Saturday and again the food was great. The beef was cooked to perfection, and the kitchen were kind enough to cook it some more for the people who like to ruin a great bit of beef.
So we would both like to thank Sophie and her team for everything.

Our wedding day was a seamless and relaxed day.
We would love to highly recommend this beautiful, classic and intimate boutique hotel to anyone considering staying with Yorebridge, or wanting to celebrate with friends and family. The staff at Yorebridge offer a first class service, cater to your needs and will always leave you feeling cared for.

We had our wedding at Yorebridge House on the 6th August 2018. Our wedding was a seamless, beautiful day, thanks to the attention to detail and organisation of Charlotte and the Yorebridge team.

We fell in love with Yorebridge on our first visit, after 3 meetings and 2 restaurant visits, we couldn't have been more excited for our wedding day. As vegetarians, they catered for our needs and our 48 guests. The hotel was spacious and flowed through from the inside to out, giving our guests the freedom to be in a quiet space away from the main wedding if they wished.

Charlotte the hotel's owner, gave us a professional, responsive service, in regards to our many queries. During meetings, we felt well catered for as she would know exactly what needed to be asked even if we hadn't thought of it ourselves. With Charlotte at the helm, this meant our wedding day was a seamless and relaxed day. Thank you Yorebridge, we look forward to coming back for our first anniversary.

Our wedding day in July was simply perfect.
Myself and husband fell in love with this hotel as soon as we visited. The service and attention to detail is impeccable and we soon decided this was our perfect wedding venue. We had numerous meetings and restaurant visits and we never left disappointed.
Our wedding day in July was simply perfect. Sophie’s calm and professional manner meant that we were not worrying and we were made to feel at ease. The weather, food, hotel service, and the beautiful hotel surroundings contributed to our fabulous day. Our guests also commented on how fabulous the venue and day was.
We can’t wait to return for many years to come to relive the best day ever!!
Many thanks

Yorebridge is perfect in every way.
Yorebridge is perfect in every way. The staff offer a very warm genuine welcome on every visit. Their attention to detail is second to none. They managed our wedding reception perfectly, we were able to enjoy our day without a worry. We have made several overnight visits before and since our wedding, each one as perfect as the first. The only difficulty they give guests is deciding which one of their fabulous rooms to stay in!

Above and beyond all of our expectations.
Yorebridge House hosted our wedding in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales last weekend. The service from Sophie, Henry and the team throughout our 3 day stay was impeccable and went above and beyond all of our expectations.

All of the rooms are exceptional - each individually designed to a very high spec. The bathrooms in particular are amazing, as are the ridiculously comfy beds. A number of our guests enjoyed rooms with hot tubs, which was a very welcome added bonus! The food at Yorebridge is also top class, from the delicious breakfasts to the incredible evening dishes.

Finally, as a wedding venue, we couldn't rate Yorebridge highly enough. Sophie and all of the team were so accommodating throughout the weekend, Yorebridge felt like a second home to us! Sophie coordinated the day perfectly and it could not have gone more smoothly thanks to her hard work and attention to detail. We honestly couldn't recommend Yorebridge more highly as a wedding venue and are so glad we chose it for ourselves!

Overall, Yorebridge is a wonderful place made all the more special by the people working there. Thank you all for making our day the best of our lives

Yorebridge House is a very special place for us
My husband and I had stayed at Yorebridge several years ago and completely fell in love with the natural beauty of the surroundings as well as the perfect balance between luxury and homeliness inside the hotel. When we got engaged it was the first place that we both thought of for our wedding. From the moment that we met Sophie, the general manager, I knew that we were in safe hands. She is warm, friendly and was flexible to our many requests, ensuring that all of our ideas were made possible. On the day of the wedding, I (usually a bit of a control freak) felt completely relaxed and had no doubt that the staff at Yorebridge would ensure that the day ran smoothly. All members of staff are so professional yet remain friendly and personable. The food across the entire weekend was, as expected, superb and so many of our guests commented on this. Not only was the venue, food, April sunshine and accommodation enough to make the weekend incredible, the service was the icing on the cake and we cannot thank the team at Yorebridge enough for playing such a role in the best day of our lives! Yorebridge House is a very special place for us both and we are so enormously grateful to have been able to have our wedding there. Thank you to all of the members of staff there. We can’t wait to come back to celebrate our first anniversary!

Stayed last Sunday with our 5 month old after our wedding on the Saturday. Just perfect!!! We stayed in the Kariega room with our own private view of the river and hot tub. Reception were so accommodating and helpful, a bottle of champagne to celebrate and we’d forgotten the baby monitor but they kindly provided us one and even arranged for us to have dinner in a private room so we could bring our daughter with us. All of the staff were so polite and helpful, it really feels like you’re staying with friends! Dinner was just amazing, the quality of the food fantastic!!! Thank you so much for a wonderful night away!!

My favourite thing about our stunning house is that the whole place is yours for the day! It's such an intimate venue and you can really make it your own with your decorations, flowers, photos and all of your guests. I didn't hesitate in booking my own wedding here in June 2019, it's the perfect modern, stylish, country venue to wow your friends and family!
