We just wanted to say thank you once more for everything!! The day was so special, despite the Covid restrictions, and now I don’t think I would have wanted it any other way! You really did make us feel at ease on the day!

Everyone worked so hard, and was so lovely throughout the entire process, and we are extremely grateful!

I thought I would send over a few photos as well, though it was hard to choose as they’re all so good!

We hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and New Year!

Clearwell Castle is simply stunning.

The gorgeous building is set in compact, but beautiful grounds, in an idyllic countryside setting, on the edge of the Wye Valley.

Attending the wedding of a very close friend, at such a beautiful venue.  Clearwell Castle delivers on all counts – the staff are very friendly and completely efficient, attending to every need and more and they can’t be faulted. They help to make the day run seamlessly.

A perfectly beautiful venue that delivers exceptional quality with views to match.  Picturesque gardens for photos and canapes, top notch food and wonderful accommodation.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this venue for any memorable occasion.

For anyone wondering about booking a venue perhaps without being able to visit it in person first – just do it with Clearwell Castle.

You will NOT be disappointed! They exceeded our expectations and I have two other friends who also got married here and they feel the same!

Best day of my life to this day!
