A Yorkshire Dales Wedding

A wedding journey from start to finish

We know it’s the biggest event in your lives to date and the Grassington House team 
has years of experience to take the stress and strain out of your day.

Incurable romantics themselves, owners John and Sue Rudden fell in love with their corner of the Yorkshire Dales many years ago and have been nurturing their guests and visitors at Grassington House ever since. An attractive Grade II listed Georgian building in the heart of the pretty market square of Grassington, this award-winning restaurant with nine rooms makes for an ideal location for a wedding.

A traditional restaurant with rooms presented with a modern and contemporary twist, Grassington House is licensed for civil ceremonies and partnerships and is available for complete takeover to ‘house’ the bride and groom’s own backdrop to their all-important day.

Whether it’s dinner for six or forty-six, John and Sue have extensive experience in creating successful and inspired events that have won over the hearts of couples for many years.

The location

Steps away from the Dales Way, in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, and with a picturesque backdrop of rolling green hills and rivers, Grassington House is found in an idyllic location.

There are several churches in the local area for a church wedding; Linton Church and St. Michael’s.

Exclusively yours…

The wedding offer

The Wedding Reception and Wedding Breakfast can all be enjoyed within the house and using the front terrace, which leads from the bar out onto the edge of the vibrant and pretty market square. 

We recommend that the bride and her entourage take their rooms the night before, so we can spoil and treat them from the very beginning of this exciting journey. 

Both the restaurant and the rooms have received Gold standard accolades for food and accommodation, and a wedding at Grassington House is in capable and experienced hands.
