"Thanks a million to all at Escrick Park for the efforts made to make our day so special. The singage and grass cutting was all so appreciated and we had lots of lovely comments regarding the black sheep in the park - our guests thought we have shipped them in specially"

We both (and all our guests) had a brilliant day and didn't want it to end. Thank you to both yourself and Diane who helped us at the house and theatre, especially when the rain hit and we used the house for photos. We will definitely recommend Escrick Park as it is such a lovely venue and you were all very helpful and friendly. It was so easy to set everything up, meaning the build up to our wedding was a fairly relaxed one :)

Naomi and Mick

Helen and Henneke

We had the most wonderful wedding ceremony i the Little Theatre.  I personally don't think there is anywhere else in the York area that can match the atmosphere at Skipwith Hall and we are so happy we chose it!  Escrick Park team all made it far too easy, so now I'm wondering why other people think weddings are stressful!

"The setting at Escrick Park was a perfect back drop for our wedding reception.  The Estate were really helpful in the run up and the extra little touches that they provided helped make the day run really smoothly.  All our guests commented on the fab location as well as the wonderful views, a big success all round"

The Little Theatre really is a fantastic venue, which had all required amenities and was lovely and warm. All those attending were most impressed and beats a village hall any day!
