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.

We had our wedding at Clearwell Castle in May 2019 and it was the most perfect day. Ann and her team were beyond superb – nothing was too much trouble, and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. The food was delicious, and the venue speaks for itself – we had so many compliments about what a fantastic place it is. Clearwell will now always hold a special place in our hearts and we can’t wait to return for one of their summer soirees or winter gatherings!

Zoe, we really can’t thank you enough for everything you done for us on our special day. You and the team are truly amazing, it really was everything we dreamed of and more. We had the most magical day. Not once did I have to stress about anything, in the build up or on the day as you were so organised. I had nothing to worry about all I had to do was relax and try and take it all in, we didn’t want the day to end and wish we were doing it all again tomorrow. Seeing everything altogether after the months of planning really was amazing. Thank you sooo much we will be forever grateful for everything you done for us and can’t wait to return to the castle one day. It will always be the most special place to us.

We had an amazing day and it was exactly as we had hoped.

Compliments to the chef as the Wedding Cheesecake was more than we had imagined and it looked and tasted great.

All of our guests loved the venue and commented on how seamless the day was and how good all the staff were.

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.
