Happy New Year Sian.

Firstly I wanted to take this opportunity to say a massive THANK YOU to you and all the wedding team at Clearwell. We had an incredible day that ran so smoothly thanks to you and the staff. Everyone was complementary about the politeness and enthusiasm of the catering and bar staff. The dj was fantastic and the castle looked absolutely stunning.

Thank you for listening and answering my millions of questions and for your constant effort to make my day as easy as possible. I am so happy we managed to get in the castle to put on my dress and that we were able to put the cake in.

I actually can’t thank you all enough and am so excited to see the photographer and videographers final footage.

Myself and Jon as well as all of our guests had the most fantastic time!

We booked our wedding several years ago before the world changed. When it came to us having to move our date Clearwell were incredible, with a special mention to Ann at this point who was incredibly honest, supportive and reassuring and moving without any hassle or stress.
Clearwell have hosting weddings perfected, they have a way of making sure everything runs to perfection without any pressure or stress, thanks to all of their friendly and welcoming staff. The venue and grounds speak for themselves, Clearwell is beautiful and gave us the fairytale we never knew we could have.
Our day wouldn’t have been possible without our amazing wedding coordinator Simon Cooper. Simon was friendly, professional and keen to help in any way he could from the moment he introduced himself. Simon went above and beyond in every single aspect of the day and in every way. He was incredibly attentive, helpful and supportive to both of us before the wedding, helping to get everything in place and minimise any stress. Throughout the day Simon was always on hand, was polite, patient and compassionate with all of our guests and this was maintained throughout the entirety of our day and the following morning.
We honestly can’t say enough great things about Simon, a very special thank you for all that you did for us, we will be forever grateful to you.
If your thinking about booking your wedding at Clearwell, there is nothing to think about.
They look after you, make sure your day runs smoothly and treat you like your the only wedding they have ever had, in addition you will have a perfect day in a beautiful place.

Our wedding was perfect. Clearwell castle is a stunning venue. The food looked great and tasted amazing too.

Sian and the rest of the staff were helpful, friendly and professional. I can’t speak for any one else but can only say that Sian was phenomenal for our wedding.  My wife and I  would like to say a massive thanks to all of the staff but Sian in particular. We look forward to attending one of your evening events.

I would not hesitate to recommend this venue to anybody looking to get married.

Wow!! If I could give this venue 10 stars I would! Me and my husband got married here yesterday and it was absolutely perfect!

I booked this venue 2 years ago and they have gone above and beyond to make sure our day was special.

My Dad unfortunately had a fall and hurt himself the morning of the wedding where an ambulance had to be called. As you can imagine this was very stressful and upsetting but the staff were excellent!!! They calmed us down and were so helpful.

A massive thank you to Ann who I have dealt with throughout. Their all amazing people and i will miss talking to them. Thank you Clearwell Castle you made our day perfect and that is something I will never forget!!!

Hi Ann,

Jared and I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and the rest of the team at Clearwell. Our day on Friday couldn’t have gone better, you were all so helpful and attentive and we felt relaxed the whole time.

We also wanted to thank you for being so understanding and helpful throughout the past year, with multiple date changes and the unknown, it was really such a huge help having a venue as understanding and accommodating as you have been. With all the restrictions and lockdown rules changing, the whole wedding planning turned into a bit of a nightmare, but knowing we were lucky to have such a understanding venue and suppliers really made a huge difference! All of our guests commented on how amazing the day was and how fab the venue and staff are and are really looking forward to coming back next year.

We’re really looking forward to next April to come back for the “big do” but have already been telling everyone we know how amazing you all are.

Thank you again 😊

Laura & Jared

Myself & my husband to be, have just finished our virtual Zoom meeting with Lottie, at the Castle.

We had no idea, how we could possibly get a feel for the venue this way, but we were so very impressed & she was FANTASTIC.

It’s safe to say, that we will be putting our special day, in the more than capable hands, of Lottie & the rest of the team.

Thank you for the call today. It’s immensely reassuring to see how on the ball you and Clearwell Castle are – I feel like we’re in very safe hands!

I’d been starting to worry about wedding planning and the mountains of things left to do, but after speaking with you it feels like we’re right on track 😊
