Customers Say

“You couldn’t wish for a more beautiful setting for your big day than Howard Court, a beautiful farm house with stunning views of the Yorkshire Moors, I couldn’t think of a more perfect place to celebrate. Jules and Caroline went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect and were so helpful and accommodating to all of our requests (such as to have Llamas!). We are so thankful to Howard Court for our perfect day!

“We were at a tipi wedding here in August 2019, which was just absolutely perfect in every way. The setting in the fields, with the backdrop of the hills is something really special, and i loved that guests were able to walk down to the stream at the bottom of the field. I remember saying at the time how lovely it'd be if the barns were also renovated for weddings, and i've been following the family's progress on instagram. They've done a magical job in sympathetically restoring the old buildings, and if i were to get married again I'd book at Howard Court in a heartbeat!”

What a beautiful venue! If you're looking for a space with beautiful rustic buildings, stunning scenery and opportunity to put your own style on the place then Howard Court is the perfect venue.
The space is amazing and allows a couple to put their own stamp on the place, which we really loved.
Juliette and Caroline are both brilliant to work with; really helpful, responsive and full of fantastic ideas and recommendations. I can't thank them enough!”

"We love love love your venue! What an amazing job you’ve done restoring the old barn – it looks incredible with the rustic red brickwork and the twinkling fairy lights wound around the beams. The perfect place for any celebration!"
- Laura
"We were looking for a venue that was a little bit different and that we could really individualise. We fell in love with Howard Court and their blank canvas approach. Say goodbye to the samey, stuffy, stately home weddings and a big hello to quirky, personalised weddings. We cannot wait to get married here!"
- Olivia
"We really enjoyed attending a friend’s wedding here. It’s just minutes from Stokesley but felt like we were right out in the countryside. The view of Roseberry Topping is just perfect for photos. Whilst the wedding we attended was in a tipi, we had a sneak peek at the barn and thought it looked incredible. This area has been crying out for a venue like this and at last Howard Court as arrived!"
