About

Are you dreaming of a fairy-tale castle that's exclusively yours for your special day? The magnificent façade of Clearwell Castle affords picture-perfect photo opportunities, and who doesn’t want to be the prince and princess of their very own castle for the day? As the company focusses entirely on weddings, the castle is always presented at its very best, allowing couples to truly visualise in advance the magical scenes that can be created here. Couples often comment on how warm and welcoming Clearwell Castle feels, despite its elegance and grandeur.

The church-like Ballroom boasts a 75-foot-long aisle, raised dais and leaded windows. The sense of ceremony created when the Bride and Groom say 'I do' just cannot be recreated. Fine dining follows, with our team of in-house chefs able to create bespoke menus to suit any taste, with hand-picked house wines available to complement the tasty wedding breakfast.

The modern Cellar Bar has been designed with your evening reception in mind, and offers a contemporary setting to dance the night away in style. The addition of the Clear Well just a short stroll away means there are now an additional 20 bedrooms on top of the 15 Castle bedrooms for your wedding night. If one night is not enough, why not upgrade and stay for two?

Take a castle, create the perfect wedding setting and sprinkle it with magic... This is what you'll find at Clearwell. Whatever the season and whatever the weather, dreams really do come true.
