As soon as we visited Danby Castle we knew it was the ideal venue for us, the incredible views over the countryside and the beautiful ruins were just what we wanted for our romantic winter wedding. Carolyn and the team were so helpful and flexible during the planning stages allowing us to use the courtroom for our drinks reception and recommending great local suppliers. On the day everything ran very smoothly and the staff were so attentive and friendly, the food was also a real highlight! We couldn’t have wished for a more perfect venue for our wedding day and just wish we could do it all over again! Huge thanks to everyone Xxx

Danby Castle was the first venue we looked at and we immediately knew we wanted to get married there. Our favourite thing about the venue was the amount of different spaces it had; the lovely Courtroom where the marriage takes place; the old barn where we had our drinks reception, which is full of historic charm and the new barn where we had our wedding breakfast and evening reception. Danby Castle also has the most breathtaking views, which made for a lovely backdrop to our pictures. Carolyn was fantastic at coordinating our wedding, always responding to emails quickly and going out of her way to be flexible with our requirements. We chose the pie and mash for main course followed by a trio of mini desserts. So many of our guests complimented us and the team on the food, saying it was the best wedding food they'd ever had. We had a pizza buffet in the evening which was equally as delicious. Another pull to the venue for us were the bar prices are very reasonable. I would have no hesitation on recommending Danby Castle as a wedding venue.

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone at Danby Castle once again for making our day so amazing. We got married in June 2019 and it was the most perfect day. Getting the right venue is so so important and I’m so glad we managed to find it. It is such a unique venue with a mix of history from the ceremony room and rustic vibes from the converted barn where you have the wedding breakfast. Everyone has said how fantastic the location and venue was. The team at Danby are so helpful and can help you liaise with a multitude of suppliers to ensure that the vision you have in your head comes to life.

What can I say, I am still grinning from ear to ear about how wonderful our day was. We would love to be able to do it all again. Danby Castle is absolutely stunning and even on a rainy day like ours did not lose that beauty. Right from the beginnig when we fell in love with Danby Castle and all the amazing things it has to offer we knew we would have the best day of our lives. We quickly realised that Carolyn, Phil and Max are the most amazing people and are very experienced in making couples wedding days just how they want them, nothing is too much trouble. They look after all the little bits so that the day just flows perfectly and for us as a couple felt effortless. I can't imagine it was for them! We love Danby Castle, we think Carolyn, Phil and Max are AMAZING and would tell anyone we meet who are engaged to be married to consider this venue, although I would be a little jealous!

So from the moment we arrived at Danby Castle to view the venue we fell in love with it. You need to visit to see just how stunningly beautiful it is - trust us - you won't regret it. The day itself was better than we could ever have imagined. The staff were so attentive without being intrusive. The food was AMAZING, all our guests commented on this. We danced the night away, and we are both so grateful for everything the team at Danby Castle did to make our day so perfect. We can not thank then enough, and would recommend this place to anyone - and so would our guests!!!

We wanted a venue that was rustic and full of character... Danby was the first venue we saw and we didn’t have to go look any further. We were incredibly lucky with the weather so most of our day was spent outside with a relaxed garden party vibe, with the amazing Back Chat Brass getting all the guests dancing from the start. Carolyn was attentive, supportive and full of fantastic suggestions to help make things run smoothly from the first meeting through to the big day itself there was no request too big or small. On the day itself Carolyn, Phil and Max set to making our vision for the venue a reality but also really importantly made sure to remind us to not sweat the small stuff, enjoy our day and let them do what they do best - throw a great party! We are sure lots of other couples will say this but ours was the best day ever, and we couldn’t be happier with Danby as the place we got to celebrate it in. To anyone reading this and thinking about booking Danby..... DO IT! Oh and one last thing - choose the pie as your food option, you won’t regret it!
