Beautiful Grounds

Clearwell Castle stands at the top of Clearwell village, set deep in the heart of the Forest of Dean. The approach to the Castle takes you through the original portcullis setting the scene for a truly majestic wedding. A manicured croquet lawn and lake are hidden to one side of the Castle and provide the perfect setting for your wedding reception and photos. The grounds are exclusively yours for your entire wedding day.
