Wedding Planning

Planning your wedding


Let’s start by saying all you have to do is enjoy this whole beautiful process because you’ll be looked after by our super lovely (and effective) wedding co-ordinators Clair and Aimee. (If you need detail, our ‘package’ page has it. For now, let’s just get a sense of what’s possible together.)

Located on Yorkshire’s beautiful Heritage coast on the outskirts of Scarborough, our converted farm has bags of rustic charm. We are within easy travelling distance of York, Malton, Whitby and Hull, and excellent rail links from York make us accessible from London and Edinburgh.

Our tipis hold up to 136 seated guests for your wedding celebration, on solid wood tables with individual chairs. For your evening celebration there is plenty of space in the tipis for your chosen band, DJ and all the dancing (the good and the bad).

Our indoor-outdoor bar (the former stables) is next to the tipis and makes a great chill out area. It provides further seating and an additional area for your guests to enjoy. You can choose to serve your welcome drinks from here and if you would like to keep things relaxed, why not do your speeches here?

There are gorgeous natural photo locations around our site but also nearby. If you’ve been dreaming of beach wedding pictures, Scarborough’s North Bay with its bright and cheery beach huts and medieval castle is just a few minutes away. There are also some stunning cliff-top locations with amazing views and romantic wooded glades nearby.
