A Hidden Gem in The Stunning Forest of Dean

Complete with grand reception rooms, a 75-foot-aisle and accommodation aplenty, the multi-award-winning Clearwell Castle offers a magnificent backdrop for your fairy-tale wedding.

A Fairy-tale Castle Wedding Venue in the Heart of Gloucestershire

Set in twenty acres of grounds, complete with a cocktail terrace and croquet lawn, Clearwell Castle is embedded within the romantic Forest of Dean and offers an enchanting venue for your wedding day.

Make your way through the forest and notice the magnificent facade, which affords picture-perfect photo opportunities. Despite its elegance and grandeur, this Gloucestershire venue is warm and ready to welcome you.

The church-like Ballroom boasts a 75-foot-long aisle, raised dais and leaded windows. Fine dining follows, with our team of in-house chefs able to create 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 end your night in further celebration. The addition of The Wyndham (formerly Crosswell House) just a short stroll away means there are now an additional twenty-four bedrooms (and bar facilities) on top of the fifteen Castle bedrooms for your wedding night. If one night is not enough, you can upgrade and stay for two.
