Thanks to our rich heritage, we have been recognised as one of Yorkshire's architectural gems for more than two hundred years.
Located in an elevated position high above the historic spa town of Ilkley, our Grade 1 listed Georgian country house is home to some of the finest examples of 18th century décor.
The original estate dates back to 1253, however, the hall was burned down around 1734 and was rebuilt by Henry Ibbetson, only to be destroyed by fire again in 1743.
It was Sir John Ibbetson who, in 1776, commissioned John Carr, of York – renowned as the leading architect of his era in the North of England – to create the Denton Hall we know today. Carr also designed Harewood House and the stable block of Castle Howard.
The hall is set in the heart of 2,500 acres of colourful, secluded, landscaped grounds, which feature their own manicured lawns, mature woodlands, working farms and two lakes – bringing a picturesque blend of tranquillity and sophistication - the perfect backdrop to our wide range of sporting and team-building activities.
It features four meeting rooms, two communal breakout areas and a dedicated dining room serving home-made food, scones and biscuits.
It is a unique and inspiring venue for hosting business meetings, conferences, seminars, training and creative team-building events, and product launches.
What Our Guests Are Saying
On behalf of our whole family I would like to express our sincere thanks for all your help at Lottie's and Andrew's wedding. Both Denton Hall and The Box Tree staff we could not fault. The service, the food, the venue all excellent. I know you see many weddings, but you helped make the day truly memorable and special.
We held our wedding at Denton Hall and other than saying 'yes' to my fiance (and my dress!) It was the best decision we ever made.
If you are thinking about having your wedding at Denton Hall, do it! We can honestly say that it was the best day of our lives and a large part of that was because the staff, venue and food were all fantastic.

I just want to express our enormous gratitude for what was a truly wonderful wedding at Denton Hall. The feelings and memories are overwhelming as one magical moment just turned into another. You were both absolutely outstanding throughout the whole process; from the day we first met you right up until our goodbyes at the end of our wedding. But this was especially true on the day of our wedding. You thought of everything! This made our day so relaxed and enjoyable and it was everything that we had hoped it would be and more. Nothing was ever too much trouble and you made us feel like the 'stars of the show' but also special friends for whom you wanted everything to be just perfect and done the way that we wanted it. Denton Hall couldn't be in better hands!
