Judges Hotel, North Yorkshire

Judges Hotel, formerly known as Kirklevington Hall, is a popular North East wedding venue and getaway for people who live near the North Yorkshire Moors. Located near Yarm in the North East, Judges Hotel offers luxury accommodations and sits in the middle of 22 acres of gardens and thick woods. A small river runs quietly through the woodlands. There are many pathways among the gardens and through the wooded areas. 

Judges Hotel is well-known for its luxury features when it comes to weddings. Everything a bride and groom need can be found on the grounds. The Downs family who restored the hotel also had success restoring other manor houses as well. Extensive efforts were taken to restore the building as close to its original glory as possible. Today Judges Hotel sits in regal fashion, surrounded by its beautiful Victorian wall and lavish gardens.

History of Judges Hotel

Kirklevington Hall was built in 1881 by the Richardson family. During World War II, the Army took possession of the property and used it until the end of the conflict. When the Downs family acquired the property, it became a home away from home for judges who travelled through the area. From the early 1970s to 1989, local judges stayed at the home for all their travelling needs. In 1989, when the judges stopped using the property, the renovations began. By 1994, Judges Hotel opened and was ready for business.

The elegance of the manor has been restored, along with all the gardens and beautiful Victorian wall that once doubled as a bunker for the British Army. Couples can spend time preparing for their special day in the lavish rooms of the country house. The property has several areas throughout the estate allowing for exquisite wedding photography anywhere on the grounds.
