The Setting

Tanfield House is a beautiful period house in a romantic riverside setting, on the banks of the River Ure, surrounded by stunning gardens.

Licensed for Civil Ceremonies in a Riverside Pavilion and also within the house, Tanfield House is offered on an exclusive hire basis for 2.5 days. Tanfield House delivers an entirely unique and intimate ‘at home’ experience, often denied by more commercial wedding venues. It is ideal for small to medium size weddings (max 100) and comes with full wedding planning support and management.

The Vibe

The vibe of this venue is informal and relaxed with couples designing the space according to their vision. You will be able to choose your own caterer to work with and the style of feast that’s right for you – from a sit down banquet to summer BBQs, sharing platters and afternoon teas! You are free to choose whatever light evening catering you desire, ranging from buffets to vintage pizza ovens and ice cream bicycles.

The house is always open to guests to make full use of the drawing room and other comforts throughout your wedding and smaller parties can dine in the house (max 40). The majority of their weddings involve a marquee and they work with a great supplier on incredibly competitive rates, delivering stunningly finished marquees for couples to personalise as they wish.

While the team run Tanfield House with extreme efficiency, they do so with joy and lightheartedness and the homeliness and privacy of the venue delivers a very relaxed feel.
