Skitby House exceeded all expectations we had of our perfect wedding day and truly created a fairy-tale venue for us. They made everything so easy and simple and the day was beyond the perfection you dream of for your wedding day - it was our own. Every single guest complimented the Venue and even commented "the most beautiful place for a wedding we've ever been to" and "so intimate yet relaxed!". I cannot express how simply stunning this venue is and how amazing the staff there are. A real hidden gem.Jonathan & Sophie Callaghan
We had our dream wedding day. From the first meeting to the day itself you were absolutely fantastic. All our guests commented on how amazing the food was and some still are talking about the canapes. Skitby is a stunning venue and it truly deserves recognition. We could not have asked for a more beautiful setting for our reception. We had the perfect day and cannot wait to come back soon.Emma & Karl Robson

Thank you again. Lizzie & Chris Tolley (Parents of the Bride)
