Danby Castle

Danby Castle Farm, Danby, Whitby, North Yorkshire YO21 2NP


Danby Castle is a scheduled ancient monument and family home constructed in the fourteenth century by the Latimer family, whose members included some of the most powerful nobles of medieval England.

Danby was a quadrangular castle, which consisted of a rectangular building with a central courtyard and towers at each corner.

The South Range of the Castle was converted into a manorial Courthouse with the former private chamber being divided into a Court Room. The Court Room is now used as a ceremony room for intimate and romantic candle-lit weddings.

The Jury Room is used for registrars and celebrants to meet with couples for their interviews prior to the ceremony, couples can also retire to the Jury Room once the ceremony is complete for a moment alone before meeting their guests for the drinks reception.

After the ceremony, the wedding party is invited to join the newlyweds for their drinks reception where they can enjoy the views of the Esk Valley from the lawn, wander through the 14th Century castle ruins, grab a drink in the authentic Threshing Barn or sit back and relax in the snug.

In 2016 we began renovating the original 14th Century Barn located across the lawn from the castle ruins. The Barn boasts its authentic wooden beams adorned with fairy lights, original 14th Century stonework, a varnished wooden floor and real wood-burning stove to create the perfect atmosphere for your wedding breakfast and evening reception.

We welcome you to our home and with our fabulous team we will give you the wedding you dream of having.

We can promise a relaxed atmosphere, great food and excellent customer service.

As a family run business we see you from your first visit through to waving you goodbye the day after.

We would like to offer couples booking via My Wedding Suppler a 20% discount off venue hire or £250 off our Honeysuckle or Foxglove wedding packages.
