My wife and I married at Clearwell Castle in May 2019 and we could not possibly have been happier with the venue, food, events management and everything inbetween. If you are looking for a venue for your big day before you look at any other venue I would highly recommend looking at Clearwell Castle first. We drove over 100 miles to get to the venue but it was worth it. Our wedding planner, Ann, was absolutely outstanding ensuring the day ran as smooth as possible. The venue is perfect in every way and I could not possibly sing their praises enough.

From gardeners, cleaners, kitchen staff, serving staff and especially Lottie a huge thank you from the Morris Family.

On  the Bank Holiday Monday David and Grace got married and everything was perfect. We would never have known it was your 5th wedding in five days! Everything ran like clock work from morning until midnight.

Your staff were invisible but worked so hard. The Dj was amazing too! They really do deserve medals.

Keep doing what you do the way you do, as it obviously works!

We have great memories of a special day!

We just wanted to say a massive thank you to you all for the most wonderful experience of our lives! It was just the best time ever! Huge compliments to the chef and his team, so many people came up to me to say that the quality and quantity of food was far superior to any they had experienced at other weddings they had been to. Everybody loved the castle and grounds and kept saying what a perfect venue we had chosen and they were right, the whole experience was PERFECT!

Well where do we begin!

It’s done and it’s over and it was the best day of our lives. I know every bride and groom or couple say the same thing, but from the bottom of our hearts thank you… You made our day the spectacle we’ve always wanted!

You’re kind and sweet which made us feel at ease and completely content knowing our day was going to be what it was.

We have already had continuous feedback from guests saying the day was flawless and ran so incredibly smoothly.

The food was top notch and you were so quick on the service!

The rooms in both the Ceremony and Wedding Breakfast were exactly how we’ve been imagining them since day one…if not better! We just can’t express our gratitude towards you!

We are completely devastated it’s all over and have been feeling the Wedding Blues for the last two days! Nobody mentions that part!

We cant wait to make an appearance at The Castle soon!

I just wanted to say the biggest thank you to all of the staff at Clearwell Castle. Our day went without a single hiccup, the food was delicious, the staff attentive, and the venue absolutely perfect.

Our day was extraordinary and I cannot thank you enough! Many friends and family have commented that it is the best wedding they have ever been to. Everyone from the housekeeping staff to the night porter went above and beyond for us and it really was noticeable.
