Landscaped grounds, terraced gardens and views across the Derwent Valley.
On Yorkersgate in historic Malton the Talbot Hotel and York House command a superb position with views across the Derwent Valley. The landscaped grounds and terraced gardens offer the perfect backdrop for your wedding photographs and, on a sunny day, an alternative venue for your reception drinks.
York House and the Talbot Hotel are both iconic 18th century, grade II listed buildings which have been lovingly restored by the Fitzwilliam Estate. In 2012, the Talbot Hotel reopened its doors following a £4 million refurbishment, and has been delighting guests with its traditional charm and family feel every since. A popular wedding venue limited only by its capacity to seat 60 guests for an intimate celebration.
Neighbouring the hotel is the stunning York House, which had remained unused for over 20 years. Upon opening the imposing doors there was a breath-taking interior, which included mosaic stone flooring tiles and a magnificent oak staircase. Keen to restore it to its former glory, the Fitzwilliam Estate have once again made substantial investment to save the building from going into disrepair. As such the Talbot Hotel now has the large wedding venue that its guests have hoped for. In conjunction with a semi-permanent marquee in the grounds, York House will now welcome wedding guests for their reception drinks, before they move through the gardens into the marquee that can seat up to 150 guests.
