Our Wedding Planner was amazing - her professionalism, friendliness and attention to detail was impeccable. We absolutely loved her! Thank you to all of you for helping us create the most perfect day of our lives. It couldn't have been any better!

Kayleigh & Stewart, Bride and Groom - 3rd Nov 2017

As the Father of the Bride I would like to thank the management and staff for everything you all did to make the Wedding of Mike and Laure West on Thursday 26th October 2017 such a success. Lauren and Mike really enjoyed their day and so did the guests many of whom have commented on the high standards shown by the venue and its staff. 

Please pass on our thanks and good wishes to everyone who contributed to the day from the catering, housekeeper and grounds staff and to any group I may have missed.

The grounds, accommodation, food and the service were excellent and the whole day went very smoothly and unobtrusively becuase of the good natured efficiency of everyone concerned. 

I'd particulary like to single out our Wedding Manager who was superb. She was with us the night before, throughout the day itself late into the night and was still there to see us off in the morning. She certainyl has stamina! She was helpful, calm and helped to lighten the mood when natural wedding nerves set in and was a constant link throughout the wedding.

Thank you to all of the staff - you helped to make it a great day for all of us.

Peter, Father of the Bride - 26th Oct 2017

We would like to thank our Personal Wedding Manager and all the staff at Clearwell Castle for all their help and making our day so stress free and perfect. They really couldn't do enough for us. The venue, rooms, food were all incredible and we couldn't have wished for anything more. 

Sarah and Zoe, Bride and Bride - 30th Sep 2017

A fairytale venue for a wedding! Everything ran smoothly with no stone unturned. The rooms, grounds and food were spectacular. Cannot recommend this venue enough! Wish I could just come back to stay the night but it makes even more special knowing the Bride and Groom have exclusivity for the whole of their special day. A big thank you again for running my mums wedding day!

Annabelle, Daughter of the Bride - 22nd Sep 2017

On behalf of both families, I would like to thank you all for a wonderful day. Your help and support made it special and it ran like clockwork. We all had a lovely time in beautiful surroundings despite the weather! Thank you once again for everything.

Thank you once again for all your amazing work, not just on the day but helping with our planning. You really made the whole day run perfectly. 

Natalie and Chris, Bride and Groom - 6th Oct 2017

Dan and I attended an Open Day in May 2016 just a few weeks after we got engaged. I walked into the Ballroom and felt this instant pang of excitement - I had to walk down that aisle!! Having spoken to a couple of other venues, Clearwell ticked every box, but in the end we chose them over everyone else because the service was exceptional from the word go (not to mention the setting is breath taking!) We were given a quote on the day, and following that, the Events Manager was able to answer every question we threw at her in no time at all - we were never kept waiting for a response! As the wedding came closer, we met our Wedding Planner (this woman deserves a medal for what we put her through!!) There were a number of sensitive matters that arose in the run up to the day, and she was a miracle worker, NOTHING was a problem and nothing phased her. Myself, my mum, bridesmaids and daughters stayed in the Keepers cottage the night before, which I highly recommend, and Dan, his men & my son stayed in North Lodge - this meant the day started off super chilled for all of us. The day itself was wonderful, I cannot put into words just how wonderful it was, everything was just perfect - we were honestly in this bubble of happiness from start to finish. The staff were exceptional, they made everything look flawless, and again, nothing was a problem. The food was too good for words - our friend who is vegan said that her meal was the best vegan meal she had ever had at a wedding (big Brownie points!). I could literally go on about how amazing our experience was forever and a day. Everything about Clearwell Castle makes it the epitome of the fairytale wedding - anyone considering booking would not regret it! Thank you to everyone who made our day so perfect and beautiful. Hannah & Dan - 24th September 2017.

Hannah and Daniel, Bride and Groom - 24th Sep 2017

2 years ago we found Clearwell castle and fell in love with it. From that moment we didn't even look at any other venues. Those two years flew by and the 9th of September 2017 was soon here. From the minute we arrived at Clearwell the staff where amazing. It felt like we where at home. We didn't have any worries the staff took care of everything. It took every bit of stress off our shoulders.only to let emotions run wild. The day just seem to be over before we knew it. We had the most magical day. Clearwell castle made it so special they made it perfect in every single way. Everything was done to perfection and we couldn't have ask for anything more. The day was everything we dreamed of and we wouldn't have changed a thing.

Christina and Andrew, Bride and Groom - 9th Sep 2017

Thank you so much for all your help every step of the way! We have felt completely at ease and 100% confident with every part of the day with you helping us. We can't say thank you enough.
