My best ever birthday party and I have had 70 of them ! My twin brother and I recently had our birthday celebration at Rudby Hall. Of my 70 birthdays it was the best ever. The hall is a superb venue for a private party. Unlike a conventional 5-star luxury hotel, it becomes yours during your stay. We started on the Friday evening with a family dinner in the intimate and cosy Lounge with a big, open, log fire. A dozen of us stayed over that night in Rudby Hall's splendid, beautifully decorated bedrooms. On the Saturday we had a dinner for 60 odd guests in the Hall's large Drawing Room, with pre-dinner drinks in the stunning Entrance Hall and Library, with dancing after dinner in the Library and, later, fireworks viewed from the terrace at the front of the house with the North Yorkshire Moors in the background. We occupied 12 of the 13 bedrooms that night.The staff led by Sandra were excellent. She is the perfect host - really - utterly charming, ever helpful, always available but never in the way. The food, provided my Andrew and his team from Coghlans at Barningham was some of the best I have tasted in 70 years. I have never seen 60 cleaner plates at the end of each course. The food and drinks were served by highly professional staff with great empathy. The combination of a private and splendid venue, excellent food and friendly and attentive staff (and not forgetting the wine – Andrew’s wine) made this an unforgettable and wonderful birthday for me, my twin brother and all our guests without exception. Thank you! I can't think of a better place for a private party, wedding or similar. Graham 5.11.17

'I just wanted to let you know what an amazing time we had on Saturday for our wedding; everything went perfectly. Rosie was an absolute diamond from arrival to departure, she was the most perfect host we could have asked for. I've heard so many lovely comments on how welcoming and helpful she was.
Catering staff were all superb, they did an amazing job. Our wedding breakfast food was fantastic; all steaks were cooked perfectly and the presentation was stunning. The same goes for evening food; it went down a storm.
Last but not least, I want to say thank you for recommending Last Anthem Unplugged. Having Andy singing our song and playing piano in church was truly beautiful. Then having Unplugged play as our evening guests arrived really set the atmosphere ready for the full band in the evening, and wow those guys certainly know how to bring a party to life, they were brilliant.
So, thank you to every single one of you, and your teams for making our wedding day perfect and one of the most memorable days of our lives.’

My son had his wedding there on 1st August 2015, the owners could do nothing more for us, they looked after everything we needed; the perfect hosts. The bedrooms are to die for and the children could just be left to play in the grounds and tree house play area.'

Tom and I look forward to our next visit, hopefully on our first wedding anniversary! Best Wishes.’
Tom and Eve, May 2015.
'I am so glad we chose Rudby Hall for our wedding on Saturday 16.05.15, it truly is the perfect venue. The service provided by Sandra and Martin along with their team is brilliant. They are very helpful, efficient, friendly and welcoming to their amazing building. The function area of Rudby Hall has a nice relaxed feel with the whole ground floor being opened-up to incorporate a dining area, band/dancing room, central bar/reception and a lounge. This gives the guests flexibility to spend the day how they feel comfortable, rather than being crammed into a function room like most weddings. The bedrooms are decorated to a very high standard with themed rooms and attention to detail. The bathrooms are a highlight and have a luxurious finish. The hall is set in lovely gardens with great photo opportunities (weather permitting!). I couldn't recommend this venue highly enough with the facilities on offer, and management who ensure your big day runs smoothly and exactly how you planned it.'
E & T H, May 2015.
'Stayed at Rudby Hall for my friend’s wedding. The venue is amazing, the food is amazing and the staff make you feel very welcome and can't do enough for you, especially Sandra. I stayed in the Mrs Jordan room and it was great. All the rooms are individually designed and that's what's so great about this place, it's above and beyond all expectations. Thanks for making my stay so wonderful.'
N R, May 2015.
'This building was built for a princess and certainly makes the bride feel like one! The hall has been beautifully restored and decorated, every room having a different colour scheme. It is a luxurious venue and has a homely feeling. I have been to some lovely wedding venues in the past, but none come anywhere near this!’
V H, May 2015.
'What a wonderful place to stay with such unbelievable hospitality. You were all so amazing and really did make us feel at home! Cannot wait to stay again, lots of love.'

Margaret Jeffs, May 2015.

‘The full complement of 13 rooms were amazingly well furnished with luscious bathrooms and very comfy beds. The lounge and dining halls are a perfect size for a party of 70-80 people, with multiple rooms to split the mood.’ May 2015.
‘Bar pricing is acceptable for a remote venue, and service for the number of people was very good. The event was planned and well managed throughout the day with the help of Rudby Hall’s staff, and we were advised well for suppliers and entertainment.'
A H, May 2015.
'A wonderful weekend, not only the wedding itself but the venue and the staff; a very enjoyable stay.'

'I decided to book a stay at Rudby Hall for Valentine’s night. We stayed in the bridal suite (Lady Amelia's room); the entire building and grounds are breath-taking and it is one of the most sympathetically restored homes I have ever stayed in. The staff were fantastically helpful, calling us prior to arrival to help with dinner reservations, and we were greeted by the owner who could not do enough to ensure that we were made welcome. Every little detail has been thought of and it is a venue well worth the money; we will be visiting again in the future.'
J S, February 2015.
'Wonderful stay, very nice hosts, will stay again when next in the area, thank you.'

Mr and Mrs W, September 2014.
‘What is quite difficult is to physically add to properties like this; it’s quite difficult to do it and keep in sympathy of the original building. Really, they should be restored sympathetically and in many cases taken back to where they were when first built. The setting here is amazing. Looking out from the bridal suite across the hills there; it’s absolutely fabulous. They seem to have done it beautifully, beautifully.’
Lord Crathorne KCVO.
‘I am delighted to be here to assist in the opening partly because of the successful restoration of an important building. We are very fortunate in North Yorkshire to have many fine halls, castles, places of enormous historical interest, and it is important that they are maintained and restored for future centuries. This one has done very well bearing in mind the history, the history of that period of King William IV when it was built. It is very well done so it is great for this area and for the future.
‘Secondly, I hope it will be a thriving business and it should be. I’ve just looked at some of the bedrooms up there; When you step out on the balcony of the bridal suite the morning after your wedding and you look out onto the Cleveland Hills, if you didn’t already think you had arrived at heaven you would do then. So, it will work very well for many reasons.’
‘That is good for our economy and tourism in this area. We are quite proud in Yorkshire as anyone who has visited here will know. We have lots of reasons to be. We know we have the best countryside, we now have the greatest sporting record of all the counties of England, and we are very modest as well.
‘I have stepped aside as Foreign Secretary as you will know. We added it up and I went to 83 countries as Foreign Secretary and I haven’t been anywhere nicer than Yorkshire.
‘Yorkshire is a great place to visit, it is a great place to have your wedding, it’s a great place to have bed and breakfast, it’s a great place to know people; and all of these things can be enjoyed now at Rudby Hall.’
Rt Hon William Hague MP, August 2014.
Luxurious and elegant, the opening of Rudby Hall is a real asset to tourism. Tourism is worth £7 billion annually to the county and the global success of the Grand Départ in July can only build on this. The Tour de France firmly put Yorkshire on the map for international visitors and the opening of stunning venues such as Rudby Hall really shows the high standard of what Yorkshire has to offer.’.
David Shields, North Yorkshire Area Director for Welcome to Yorkshire, August 2014.
‘I can’t remember a thing so I must have had a good time. Top gaff, nice people.’ Liam Gallagher, Oasis and Beady Eye, August 2014.
