Book your wedding today!Arrange a visit.
Dale Farm is set in the beautiful Yorkshire Wolds with spectacular views towards the North Yorkshire coastline and provides a perfect location for a relaxed, informal, weekend-long ‘festival’ style wedding with family and friends. The Open Barn, situated in a courtyard setting, will be the venue for your wedding and a stunning on site pub ‘The Yorkshireman’ will also be open throughout the day.
The farm is a ‘DIY’ venue; a blank canvas which gives you complete freedom to choose your own suppliers, including catering, so your wedding will be truly unique and personal.
We are now fully booked for 2021 and most of 2022. Contact us for prices for September 2022 onwards…
We are primarily a holiday business so don’t host weddings during school holidays or bank holiday weekends. Otherwise you can get married anytime.
The Barn accommodates up to 100 day guests. We can sleep up to 26 people in our holiday accommodation. Guests can access the accommodation from 4.00pm and should leave by 10.30am. See our ‘Visit’ page for more information on our accommodation.
Exclusive use of the site from noon on the day before the wedding to noon on the day after.
All our accommodation for 2 nights including breakfast for up to 26 guests
Fully staffed, licensed and reasonably priced cash bar ‘The Yorkshireman’ open until midnight
We offer a full drinks service…this includes welcome drinks, table and toast drinks. We do not allow other drinks suppliers but you will find our prices very reasonable – please ask for a quote. We don’t offer a corkage option.
Yes of course. Some couples treat their guests, some recharge the costs and some ask guests to pay for their accommodation instead of buying a wedding present. The accommodation is around 50% of the total cost so can be a big saving. We can advise on what to charge.
50% non-refundable deposit to be paid on booking. The remaining 50% is due 6 weeks before the event. We also ask for a £300 bond which is fully refundable when you have cleared the site back to its original condition including removal of all litter.
We are not currently licensed for civil ceremonies, therefore you will need to take care of the ‘official bits’ elsewhere i.e. a Registry Office or Church.
Yes you can have a wedding blessing at our venue. You can also have a Humanist Wedding Ceremony. Check out humanism.org.uk
The barn can be made weatherproof by your marquee supplier (you will not need a full marquee). They will also have effective heaters.
We recommend Florida Marquees who have worked with us before and know the site well. You will not need a full marquee, just walls, and their prices are very reasonable.
We will liaise with the marquee company about that. We recommend Florida Marquees who have worked with us before and know the site well.
We have loads of space on site but no catering kitchen so you will need a ‘mobile’ caterer – we can discuss this with your Catering Company. We can give you a list of people we have worked with before.
We serve al fresco breakfast both mornings for people staying on site.
Yes, you are allowed to decorate the farm the day before the wedding. All belongings/decorations should be removed from the farm the day after your wedding (or taken down and stored in our barn for collection by your suppliers.) All we ask is that you leave the farm as you found it.
The use of amplified music is permitted up to 11pm and non amplified music is permitted after that. All non residents should have left the site by 12.30 a.m.
Chinese lanterns are not allowed on the farm as they can endanger crops and wildlife. Fireworks (professional not DIY!) are permitted at certain times of the year…please ask.
We have an outdoor fire pit which we can light on summer evenings.
You can have candles, fairy lights and LED tea lights but no hay or straw bales due to fire hazard.
We are happy for you to have confetti but ask that it is biodegradable; dried rose petals are lovely and easy to get hold of.
And absolutely no glitter!
We supply mobile toilets. Your marquee supplier will be able to supply heaters, flooring and tables and chairs. There is water and ample electricity supply available on site at no extra charge. The barn has lighting.
We will be on site for the whole 2 days ensuring everything runs smoothly. Your catering company will supply staff to clear up, cook and serve the food etc.
We do hold public liability insurance; however we also strongly recommend you take out your own wedding insurance to cover every eventuality. All outside services used must supply a public liability insurance certificate.
No we don’t have facilities for camping and caravans but Saxdale House (the next farm but one up the road and walking distance) has a lovely site. See saxdalehousefarm.co.uk
The Summerhouse and Treehouse make great bridal suites with a difference!
Much as we love them we strongly advise against bringing your dog to stay. If you must bring your dog to the wedding, these are the rules: only one dog in the accommodation, must not be left alone in the accommodation, must be on a lead at all times.
Welcoming owners, great base to explore from. Extremely dog friendly. Will recommend to friends and family. Will look forward to hopefully visiting...5th August 2019: guest from Rochdale
