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.

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!

Grandparents to the Bride

The best place ever for a wedding to be remembered forever. The venue was perfect for a fairy tale wedding day. The beautiful Castle was wonderful for the pictures the whole day planned to every detail and the staff did everything to make it a most memorable day, always with a smile on their face. The group taking the photos were everywhere not one moment would be forgotten. From the ceremony going through to the day and evening, it was one surprise after another. After such a great day what better way to end the evening than going to bed in a comfy warm room in the Castle and having the best breakfast ever before saying goodbye. 24hours in a Castle what a way to celebrate the wedding of a much-loved Granddaughter. A day never to be forgotten, pure magic.
