About Crathorne Hall Hotel

As you meander down the drive, past the meadows and through the oak trees, you will arrive at one of Yorkshire ‘s grandest country houses. Built and owned by the Dugdale family until 1977 this is a house that has played host to lords, queens and diplomats over the years including HRH The Queen Mother, Sir Winston Churchill and Macmillan. It has always been a place where people came to enjoy themselves to the full, a tradition that still remains today.

Far from being intimidated by the grandeur, you will soon feel like a guest in an old friend’s home. A feeling that’s fuelled by the genuine and warm hospitality you receive when you arrive.

For the 13th year in a row Crathorne Hall has been recognised as one of the top 200 hotels in the country and has been awarded four red stars for exceptional quality and service. The Hall’s East Wing has recently undergone a £4m restoration with 17 fully refurbished bedrooms and a further three flexible function suites perfect for small and intimate occasions.

If you’re looking for your wedding venue for up to 100 dining guests, 37 bedroom Crathorne Hall Hotel is the perfect venue for your fairytale wedding offers fully licensed premises for Civil Ceremonies. Take exclusive use and take over the entire house and grounds and be lord and lady for the day.

The grand Drawing Room is steeped in period features and originally designed to be the main room in the house and still is today. In the Summer the French doors can be opened giving a magnificent view of the front lawn and in the Winter you and your friends can dine in front of the original log fire.
