A magnificent castle mansion & gardens hidden in the stunning Forest of Dean.

Nestled in the Forest of Dean in the tiny village of Clearwell, the venue is conveniently located only 45 minutes from Bristol, Cheltenham and Gloucester. The journey up to the venue is as impressive as the castle itself. A sweeping tree-lined drive leads to a magnificent Portcullis, perfect for a photo opportunity with the castle turrets in the background. From there, take a short drive along the manicured grounds and be greeted by stately front steps up to the historical entrance. The beautiful Gloucestershire countryside envelopes the manor & gardens, making it a romantic retreat for couples and their guests.
