Yorkshire Wedding Venue
Previously voted Europe’s “leading destination”, Yorkshire is, and Chevin Country Park Hotel & Spa is, a beautiful wedding venue, surrounded by the picturesque Yorkshire Dales looking over Otley. The memories of your special day will last a lifetime so we feel privileged when a couple chooses our venue for their wedding celebrations.
Why should you choose Chevin for your wedding party? Well, aside from the secluded woodland location (perfect for photographs), flexible wedding packages and award-winning food and drink, we only look after one wedding per day so your wedding will be our number one priority, with absolute exclusivity granted to you and your guests throughout the whole day and evening.
Your own personal wedding coordinator, plus complimentary wedding night bridal suite, is included in your wedding package, and we also provide a toast master to help things run smoothly on the day. Wedding ceremonies are held from midday onwards, with evening receptions finishing at midnight. Chevin is licensed for civil partnership ceremonies.
We have a variety of suites all licenced to hold civil, religious, and humanist weddings.
Suitable for large weddings of up to 100 guests (or 140 guests at the evening reception), the Woodlands Suite has its own bar facilities and reception area with clear views over the private lake and gardens. This suite is flexible as it can also be split into two (Willow Suite and Birch Suite) seating around 35 people in each.
The décor of the room is neutral with windows along two of them, creating an abundance of natural daylight within the room. The muted décor allows for any colour scheme and decoration.
The Lakeside Restaurant has great views across the lake and gardens and is available for wedding ceremonies. It can accommodate 60 guests, either seated or standing.
The wooden panelling of the walls creates a perfect archway at one point in the room, ideal for the head of your ceremony. The layout of the Lakeside allows for seating in such a way that an aisle can be created to lead right up to the archway.
The Garden Lounge seats up to 30 people and is perfect for intimate, small weddings. With a log fire to warm up winter weddings and an outside reception area for the summer months, this is a great spot to hold your wedding reception whatever the weather.
Chevin offer a preferential rate for your guests, including bed and breakfast and use of the hotel’s leisure club.
- For guests travelling long distances, special rates are available for the nights before and after the wedding day itself, subject to availability
- The hotel will hold an initial allocation of 15 rooms and when all rooms from your allocation have been booked further guests will be offered the same rate, subject to availability
- Eight weeks prior to your wedding date, any unused rooms from your allocation will be released (any guests wishing to book after this time will still be able to book at the special rate, subject to availability).
We have a variety of suites available, all licenced to hold civil, religious and humanist weddings.
You will arrive at Chevin Country Park Hotel & Spa to a red carpet welcome. The chosen room for your ceremony will be decorated in your chosen designs and colour scheme and all you’ll have to do is say “I do”.
