Our Wedding Open Day

Events at The Hall

The time has nearly come for our Wedding Open Day at the Hall! 

Where?

Saltmarshe Hall is a historic 19th century stately home located in mature parkland in the secluded countryside of Yorkshire, it holds a variety of exquisite accommodation to choose from, regular events, as well as its reputation for being one of East Yorkshires top wedding venues. The grounds offer extensive lawns, wooded areas and a secluded walled garden which contains an array of colour with its kitchen garden, hornbeam hedges and bordered walkways. 

When and Why?

Join us at Saltmarshe Hall on the 2nd of September between 12 noon and 3pm to take the next step in planning the wedding of a lifetime. The magical day, hosted by us on our beautful grounds, will showcase the hall in all its glory, dressed as it would be on any of our wedding days - giving you a true taste of what your day could be like. We carry out days like these every couple of months to meet brides and grooms to be, to give tours around the hall and show how we'd design your bespoke wedding around you, and answer any questions they see fit regarding your special day. 

Ask Us! 

Our dedicated, on-site team will be there to answer any questions or queries you may have about all things weddings! Helping you visualise your perfect wedding bespoke to your ideas and preferences. Every wedding we take on at the hall, we get to know you, your needs, and exactly what we need to do to make your day one of the best you've had.

No Need to Book

So it's easier for you, the house will be open so there is no need to book, so just come down, have a chat with our lovely team and let the hall speak for itself!

 

We hope to see you there!

A Walk Around The Gardens

A Walk Around The Gardens

Saltmarshe Hall

Come and take a walk around our interesting and picturesque gardens this summer and see what you can find!

From our walled garden, to grand herbaceous borders, sweeping lawns and tree-lined walkways, our gardens are a fabulous year-round experience for anyone who comes to visit.

Set in 17 acres of stunning Yorkshire countryside and fronted by the River Ouse, beautiful and picturesque views can be seen from all areas of the garden.

The parkland offers opportunities to explore riverside walks, ancient trees and discover hidden wildlife. For the more adventurous hiker or cyclist, we’re on the Trans-Pennine trail running from Hornsea to Southport.

 

Outdoor Weddings and Events

All of our reception rooms inside the Hall are licensed for weddings, but why not complement this with an outdoor wedding? With acres of beautiful grounds and gardens you can guarantee a unique celebration. We listen to what you want, whether having it in a serene woodland setting or under a canopy of blossom trees, letting your creative input flourish, our team then make it happen! An outdoor wedding at Saltmarshe is truly a wedding to remember. 

We don’t just host weddings in our grounds and gardens, to utilise it’s beauty as much as we can in these Summer months, we host an array of exciting and diverse events for anyone and everyone to join us and enjoy. To keep updated on what there is to offer, join our mailing list by enquiring here!

Our annual garden open day is being held this Sunday (3rd of June - see events for details); with our gardeners on standby to give tours and offer information regarding the multitude of life we have within the vicinity. This year, we have a new addition to our gardens that you might find quite interesting – carnivorous plants! We thought we’d shed some light on a couple that we found the most weird and wonderful, let us know what you think, or even come and see them yourself!

The Cobra Lily

There is only one species of this fascinating plant, naturally found along mountain streamsides of North California and Oregon.
Flies are attracted to nectar on the forked 'tongue' guiding them into the lobster pot style opening into the hood. Light enters the hood through the translucent windows and the fly becomes confused and cannot find the exit. The spiral trap has rows of downward pointing hairs making the descent one way. We’ve had to be very specific in where we’ve located these in our gardens due to most of them liking a bright, cool position away from hot summer temperatures and central heating in the winter. They tend to thrive outside in a sheltered position, so we have a few places in mind!

The Venus Fly Trap

We love these… Venus flytraps are carnivorous plants native to a small region of wetlands in America. They have however been introduced into other areas of the world (soon to be including Saltmarshe Hall!) and are really popular house plants too. The flytrap snaps shut and imprisons its prey when triggered by a time and touch sensitive mechanism – interesting eh?! Once the prey has been digested, the trap re-opens ready for another victim. Each individual trap on the Venus flytrap can only operate three or four times, after which it photosynthesizes like a normal leaf or dies back. The Saltmarshe gardeners are safe… They only feed on a diet of flies and small bugs.

The Sundew

Sundews are carnivorous plants with an ingenious way to catch their prey. Sundew plants have sticky pads that trap insects. The plants are also attractive, often brightly coloured rosettes. Growing sundews is common in terrariums or other warm, moist areas that mimic their natural bog habitat, in which we have adapted an area specifically for them in our gardens.
