About the


Denton Hall is steeped in history and character, and is full of Yorkshire charm.

Located near the historic spa town of Ilkley, Denton Hall is nestled in 2500 acres of parkland with unrivaled views across the wharfe. Inside, 18th century décor, crystal chandeliers, wood paneled bar, stunning spiral staircase, elegant dining room and 26 bedrooms make Denton the ideal venue for those who seek luxury in a rural idyll.

All weddings at Denton are held on Saturdays and are fully exclusive - the Hall is yours from the Friday at 4pm through to the Sunday at Noon. We have no minimum numbers for catering, our maximum for the wedding breakfast is 80 and for the evening, 120. We also have a civil ceremony licence plus the delightful St Helens Church just outside our front gates for those seeking a traditional church wedding. 

Also included in the hall hire is the use of one of our stunning civil ceremony rooms and the Bridal suite for the night of the wedding.

Our imposing south-facing frontage offers you sweeping views for miles around, acting as a unique vantage point for the famous Ilkley Moor and Cow & Calf Rocks.

Unfortunately we have no further availability for 2022, and will not be taking any future wedding bookings as sadly the venue will close at the end of 2022. 


What Our Guests Are Saying

- Katy & Jake - August 2019

We couldn’t be happier to have chosen Denton Hall as our wedding venue! Brooke was absolutely fantastic from start to finish,ensuring every detail would be perfect and that the day would go exactly as we hoped. Nothing was too much trouble and communication was fantastic no matter how many questions or queries we had. 

The team were incredible on the day and everything went perfectly. It was fantastic to have the venue for the weekend and we were made to feel so special throughout. We had bad weather but that wasn’t an issue as the Hall is so beautiful and spacious with so many fantastic places to take photos. So many people have commented on what a fantastic venue Denton Hall was and we feel very lucky to have started our married life there! 

- Victoria & Daniel - August 2019

We just wanted to send you an email to say a big thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Saturday was the best day of our lives and it was perfect. Everyone was blown away by the venue, the food (especially the beef) and how the day was incredibly well organised.

Throughout the whole process you have all been incredibly supportive and held our hand whenever we needed advice etc. 

On Saturday though... you were all sensational. Daniel and I felt incredibly at ease with everything and we are grateful for everything you ladies did which was above and beyond. 

I could honestly go on for hours about how thankful we are and we all felt so incredibly well looked after.... Thank you once again 

- Stewart & Rosemary - April 2019

I want to thank you and all the staff for the wonderful day we had last Saturday at our Daughter Jude's Wedding. Everything was so perfect. Many of the guests remarked on how seamlessly professional everyone was.

You helped us so much in the planning and took the pressure off us on the day to make everything so wonderful.

Our very Grateful thanks.

- Margery Heron - June 2018

On behalf of our whole family I would like to express our sincere thanks for all your help at Lottie's and Andrew's wedding. Both Denton Hall and The Box Tree staff we could not fault. The service, the food, the venue all excellent. I know you see many weddings, but you helped make the day truly memorable and special.

- Laura & Matt - April 2018

We held our wedding at Denton Hall and other than saying 'yes' to my fiance (and my dress!) It was the best decision we ever made.

If you are thinking about having your wedding at Denton Hall, do it! We can honestly say that it was the best day of our lives and a large part of that was because the staff, venue and food were all fantastic.

The whole weekend flowed so smoothly and we cannot sing the praises of Denton Hall or Box Tree enough. The day went far too quickly and we just want to do it all over again.

Thank you Brooke, Steve and all the guys from Box Tree Events you were wonderful and made our day spectacular.

- Rebecca & Alastair - April 2017

We just wanted to say a very big thank you for all your help in making our wedding day at Denton Hall so special. We had an amazing weekend from beginning to end and we enjoyed every single minute of it

- Kate & Ben - February 2017

I just want to express our enormous gratitude for what was a truly wonderful wedding at Denton Hall. The feelings and memories are overwhelming as one magical moment just turned into another. You were both absolutely outstanding throughout the whole process; from the day we first met you right up until our goodbyes at the end of our wedding. But this was especially true on the day of our wedding. You thought of everything! This made our day so relaxed and enjoyable and it was everything that we had hoped it would be and more.  Nothing was ever too much trouble and you made us feel like the 'stars of the show' but also special friends for whom you wanted everything to be just perfect and done the way that we wanted it. Denton Hall couldn't be in better hands!
