We stayed here Friday 5th - Sunday 7th October 2012 for our friends wedding. It was a great DIY venue and the guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
We liked the idea of no pretentious hotel staff or check-out deadlines.
The self catering apartments were not plush but well equipped with everything you may need. The addition of the coal fire was lovely! The bed was comfortable and the linen clean.
Adults and children alike enjoyed themselves and we partied until the early hours. The hall was ideal for an intimate no frills wedding and great for a good boogie later on! The owners were on hand if need be and very friendly which was nice.
I think you have to go here for a wedding with a open mind. It is not 5* by any stretch of the imagination but for a good priced DIY wedding venue, its perfect. We have attended over 17 weddings in the past 4 years (phew!) from castles in Scotland, to 4* Sorrento to £35k (Yes £35k!!!!!) weddings, 5* Cedar Grand York.....I can honestly say that we had so much fun at Hargate Hall!
Take it for what it is and blooming well enjoy it!
