The History of Orangery at Settrington

The Orangery at Settrington, located in Malton, North Yorkshire, boasts an illustrious history and stunning design that dates back to the late 18th century. Its initial construction was orchestrated by the renowned architect John Carr of York, who meticulously designed the property to capture the aesthetic beauty of the Palladian style. The Orangery was initially conceived as a venue for lavish parties and social gatherings by the family who owned it. However, over time it fell into disrepair and was left neglected. Its transformation began in 2010 when it was restored to its current grandeur by Francis Johnson and Partners Architectural Practice. Today, the Orangery at Settrington offers a unique blend of historic elegance and modern comfort as one of the most sought-after wedding venues in North Yorkshire. The venue features a picturesque main hall, an impressive marble terrace, and stunning landscaped gardens, all of which contribute to the overall enchanting and romantic environment.
