I would just like to extend a massive thank you to the team that were on attendance at The Heron Wedding on 25th October. The young lady who was overseeing the event was superb. The day was wonderful all thanks to the professionalism and the excellent service given by all those at Clearwell Castle. The setting, the staff, the food and the accommodation was first class. This venue cannot be faulted and it was an absolute pleasure to attend my nephews wedding on Thursday.
