The ideal setting for your dream wedding

If your dream barn wedding is something completely bespoke and not your typical ‘Hotel Chain Wedding’ then you’ve come to the right place. Why not take a look at our beautiful converted rustic barn with original pitched roofs, distinctive spoked beams, bare brick walls and traditional stable doors. 

Rustic minimalism meets Boho glam with this innovative and complimentary design spectacular. With four years’ worth of renovations, this slice of agricultural ingenuity delivers a thoroughly sought after setting where wedding dreams can be made. 

The exclusive-use venue features a newly renovated barn that comfortably seats up to 200 and a luxury 8 bedroom farmhouse sleeping up to 19 guests, offering something unique to York. The barn has been tastefully designed and maintains many of its unique features, comprising the original stable doors and exposed brick-work.

If the typical 'Hotel Chain' is not for you and a rustic farm offering a stunning backdrop to create your own personalised, completely bespoke dream Wedding is, then look no further than Deighton Lodge.

    Our Story

    For the past five years we have been designing, building and refurbishing a wedding venue with a difference. Renovations initially began on the main house, where we completely upturned a very tired, old farmstead and gave it a glittering new lease of life. Maintaining many of the original features but adding lots of new quirky and highly desirable touches, we transformed the farmhouse into the luxurious state it is today. With all bedrooms offering en-suite bathrooms, these rustic boudoirs showcase several roll top baths, heated floors and innovative wet rooms, modernising the rustic farmhouse to a lavish standard. This self-catering site now also offers a comfy living room with large wood burning fire, dining room that can seat up to 19 guests, country farmhouse kitchen and a quirky hidden gem that is a full sized snooker room and memorabilia gallery with restored Burrows and Watts snooker table.

    We then set about the disused barn, with great anticipation of creating and completing the masterpiece… which we now feel has been achieved! Rustic minimalism meets Boho glam with this innovative and complimentary design spectacular. With a full two years’ worth of renovation work, this slice of agricultural ingenuity delivers a thoroughly highly sought after setting where wedding dreams are made.

    Fast forward five years - we thought the dream would be complete, but it appears 'Retreats' are the next direction for us. Come and stay in the tranquil setting of rolling fields and gorgeous Countryside for a few days time to yourself. Complete with Hot Tub, Therapist, home cooked food and 1-1 time with many different instructors to enhance your desired discipline, our Retreats are the epitomy of luxury.

    What Our Customers Have To Say.

    Our guests comfort is so important to us. See what some of them have had to say.

    Get on the train and in less than 2 hours [from London] you'll find yourself in Zen Central where yummy healthy food and non-intimidating yoga rule the day. I could not have planned a more perfect getaway… three days of yoga, good food in-between and peaceful countryside walks afterwards. Carla was the perfect host and Jacqueline a gifted teacher. Thank you both for three days of peace… and sleep. Lots of it.

    Thank you Carla for helping us create our dream wedding!

    After searching various venues throughout Yorkshire, nothing came anywhere near to what Deighton Lodge had to offer. We wanted a venue that had a relaxed vibe with the scope to put our own stamp on. The barn was the perfect environment for the ceremony/reception and the surroundings made for beautiful wedding photos. The farmhouse provided generous accommodation and facilities for our family/friends. The bridal parlour was a fantastic area to get ready in on the morning and the man cave was a huge hit!

    Carla was friendly and supportive throughout the whole process and readily available for any queries/advice. We would highly recommend Deighton Lodge to anyone looking for a venue that is unique, flexible and utterly gorgeous! xxx

    The accommodation was even better than we thought it would be. We had exclusive use of the property, which included a well-stocked kitchen. The house was incredibly clean and the rooms were stylishly decorated. I couldn’t recommend this property highly enough.

    This place was brilliant!

    I went for my Hen Party for 2 nights and had the most amazing time. Hired the whole lodge for 15 to sleep. Kitchen well stocked, each room was clean and all en suite which was fabulous. I know me and all my hens would recommend this place. Very close to York, beautiful grounds (we hired a hot tub) and amazing snooker room. Perfect for a large group get away!

    Paul – November 2016

    I photographed a wedding here in December 2016, I believe the first wedding to be held in the recently renovated barn. It was fantastic.

    I had been following this page since I was booked for the wedding, and it was really interesting to see the progress the barn was making through the photos they posted online. However the minute I walked through the door the day before the wedding I was even more impressed!

    The fact that some of the original features of the barn had been kept and the attention to detail in the renovation was lovely to see. My particular favourite thing was the old wagon cartwheels covered in vintage lightbulbs! I thoroughly enjoyed photographing a wedding here and would recommend the venue.

    Owners Drew and Carla have done a fantastic job on it and I hope that you get lots of fantastic weddings here in the future.

    " We had a wonderful stay at Deighton. We were 13 girls, who all loved the accommodation, location and hospitality. The venue was perfect for our celebration and Jennifer and her team were very kind, providing a delicious breakfast and letting us stay on a little longer while we nursed hangovers! Would thoroughly recommend. Thank you. "
