Forest weddings

Congratulations on your engagement!

Now comes the exciting time of planning your wedding day exactly the way you want it.

Dalby is set in stunning woodland in the heart of the North York Moors and a wedding at Dalby means a unique and informal venue in the beautiful setting of The Great Yorkshire Forest.

Make the most of the forest surroundings by holding your ceremony on our outside terrace overlooking the treeline. We also have a dedicated room inside with beautiful floor to ceiling views across the forest landscape.

You have exclusive use of upstairs in our sustainably built building with access the day before and after to set up and take down your decorations.
