We can’t thank you all enough for everything that was done to ensure that our day went smoothly!
It was without doubt the most perfect day not only for the two of us, but also a great experience for our guests, we have had many comments on how great the venue, food, and staff were.
We have to say a massive thank you to Zoe who has been absolutely amazing throughout, from questions, to general check up, and attentive nature on the wedding day she truly has been amazing – thank you Zoe for everything!! Even our photographer said and I quote “BIG special mention must go out the wedding co-ordinator on the day, Zoe. Seriously one of the best I have ever worked with in my 13 years as a full time wedding photographer. If you are getting married here, ask for her!”.
Perfect day thank you Zoe and the wider clearwell team!

We can’t thank you all enough. Michelle was exceptional throughout, from our pre wedding visit on the 6th March 2019 to our special day, nothing was ever too much trouble for her and kept in contact with me with the lead up to our wedding, regarding any query that I may have had and ensured that everything went smoothly, which it did. From our first initial visit in January 2018 when we booked our wedding, Barry and I just knew that this was the right venue for our wedding, it gave us goose bumps and made us feel very emotional.

Our wedding by far exceeded our expectations it was perfect in every way THANK YOU !!!

We hope to return at some time to your beautiful venue, our guests were very impressed with everything as was Barry and I.

My daughter got married there on 31st May. Beautiful ceremony room, bedrooms, grounds and disco in the cellar. Ann and her team looked after us and I cannot praise them highly enough. They were so helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. The food was superb and i have had many guests say how wonderful and beautiful the castle and whole day was. I highly recommend Clearwell castle to anyone thinking of getting married.

Ann, thank you and your team for all your help, support and understanding on Chloe and Mikes Wedding day. You really helped make the day go so well!

The wedding was so much more beautiful than I ever imagined and most of that is down to you and the team at Clearwell – although the venue is stunning it’s what goes on behind the scenes that makes it all work so well – so well done to you all. Two weeks on and I am still getting messages and comments about their day! Your chefs also are great – the food was delicious.
