My sister was married here. This has to be the best wedding I’ve ever been to and a truly magical venue to get married in! Nothing is too much trouble for them – they really do go above and beyond to make everything perfect. We stayed in the cottages the night before as well which was an awesome treat! If your looking for a venue seriously look no further. Book it! Now!!! You won’t be sorry trust me.

Thank you so much for all your help both on the day and in the lead up to our wedding. Without fail, it was the best day of our lives. It was everything we imagined and so, so much more! The staff were all so very lovely and at no point did we ever feel rushed. It was so lovely to have the castle to ourselves – a true fairytale-like wedding!
