Kirklinton Hall

Built in the 17th Century, Kirklinton Hall is currently being restored to its former glory.  It sits on a beautiful 14 acre site that features an amazing part-walled garden.

Kirklinton Experience

In Kirklinton’s stunning garden is an orchard, nuttery, quince grove, bog garden, duck palace, pigs, a yurt, a gypsy caravan and a campsite.  A scented rose maze and rose terraces surround The Great Hall. Kirklinton also have a Children’s Garden with a sandpit and play house.

Take a walk through the woods past the dragons to the Faerie Glen following the path down the side of the beck and the cascades of water. Relax at The Captain’s Seat, where you can sit and enjoy the tranquillity of nature and see the rock carving of the Faerie Princess’s face.

You can ‘pick your own’ fruits or vegetables, dependent what is in season, or purchase some of the plants grown all year round, for you to take back to your own garden.

Once done, head to the tearoom for a slice of homemade cake or a scone with tea and coffee, beer or wine.


A stunning and magical location for weddings.  Open from 1st April to 30th September each year and only hold 12 weddings or two per month each year.

Bespoke and quirky – take over the whole site to transform the Great Hall & Gardens to fit your own ideas, imagination and style.
