Truly the best day of our lives
We had the entirety of our wedding day here and it’s the best decision we could’ve made! They put our minds at ease through the whole process and went well above our expectations. The food was indescribable, honestly the best food we’ve ever had and we got the same feedback from many of our guests. We were made to feel so comfortable and we were sad to leave! The court house itself is so beautiful, we fell in love the second we saw it and the attentiveness of the staff just added to it! We will never forget or stop talking about Glewstone and that definitely won’t be our last time visiting!

Could not have wished for more - the perfect venue!
Our wedding day at Glewstone was nothing short of amazing and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect celebration. The entire weekend was exceptional from start to finish and we were made to feel so welcome. From our initial calls, the Glewstone team helped us to remember the finer details and gave personal recommendations on things we hadn’t considered. They had a detailed plan for the day and knew exactly what would happen and when. We didn't need to worry about a thing and could really just enjoy our special day. The venue and the grounds are gorgeous and this really came out in our wedding photos. The accommodation is absolutely stunning and all our guests commented on how roomy and well equipped the rooms were. My personal favourite was the food which was very high quality. There were a wide variety of menus to choose from, including canapes and evening food which did not disappoint. The wines were lovely but the bar also had a broad selection of drinks to meet all tastes. The only downside is that the day flew by so quickly but no doubt we will be back soon as part of the Glewstone alumni. A huge thank you to Gary, Amy, Sam and Charles who make the most superb team. If you are looking for a stress-free and unforgettable wedding experience, we would wholeheartedly recommend Glewstone.

Perfect venue for a perfect day
We had an absolutely amazing day. The venue was perfect, the food was outstanding, the team at Glewstone looked after everyone so well and the whole day ran like clockwork. It was everything we could have hoped for. We especially wanted to thank our MC, Charles, who did such an amazing job, keeping his cool whilst performing what must be an incredibly stressful role. He was completely unflappable and had a smile on his face the whole time. What a remarkable young man!

5* Wedding Venue
From when Gary first showed us around Glewstone Court, we were put at ease and felt confident that the people there would go above and beyond to ensure a really special day for us. We were particularly taken by the family-run feel of the venue. Put simply, they delivered on every promise they made us and more. The venue itself is beautiful and in a lovely scenic setting. Our wedding was close to Christmas, so Glewstone had their decorations up and the whole place was wonderfully festive! The main bridal suite is incredible, and the perfect place to get ready on the day. The other rooms were also all immaculately presented. The food was delicious throughout, including the Friday night buffet-style meal, breakfast, the canapés, evening food, and of course the wedding breakfast itself. Everyone commented on how lovely the food was and that there was plenty of it. The staff were incomparable – they really could not do enough for us and were so friendly. Amy’s meticulous planning beforehand ensured that every detail was thought of, and she was so patient with our many email queries! Sam and Charles made sure the day ran smoothly and looked after us so well – everything was taken care of so we could just relax and enjoy ourselves. We had a really personalised experience – this venue is not a wedding factory, churning out the same thing again and again. We were able to change the drinks package to better suit our guests, and we were also able to order a keg so that the groom and his friends could have their favourite beer on tap. We also requested a couple of cocktails to be available on the night which I’d highly recommend – they were delicious every time (and I managed quite a few of them!). Honestly, we had the best day and couldn’t be more grateful to Glewstone for providing that. If you are looking for the ideal venue for your wedding or special occasion, you need look no further!

Outstanding!
If you're looking for a gorgeous, exclusive, intimate venue (that's dog friendly) then look no further. Nestled in the beautiful Ross on Wye is Glewstone Court which is run by the most amazing team of people. I actually cannot put into words how amazing our wedding was, but I'll try my best! From arriving the night before, we were welcomed by Charles, Sam and Gary and even though I'd had minimal contact with them on the run-up to the wedding (the wedding was planned by Amy who was also amazing), everything had been handed over properly, so Charles knew exactly what was happening and when. When I say this place is dog friendly, I mean it. We specifically picked Glewstone Court because of them being dog friendly and they were SUPER lovely with all 3 dogs. I was a bit nervous at first to let the dogs roam but after a crazy 30 minutes they settled in and were happy getting fusses from all the staff. If any of the staff didn't like dogs they definitely didn't let on, I had to drag one of my dogs into the car when we were leaving as he wanted to stay! Anyway, if you don't have dogs, it's also just an amazing place to get married. We had around 50 in the day and about 70 in the evening, the place is big enough to accommodate those numbers but small enough, so people aren't all spaced out to make it look half empty. It felt very homely and with it being exclusive, we had no other people apart from our family there, so it meant we could leave the doors unlocked etc. The bedrooms were gorgeous, and the bridal suite was a perfect size for me and my 3 bridesmaids to get ready in, there was also loads of natural light for my MUA to perform her magic. Everything on the day ran smoothly and that was all down to Sam and Charles who were so attentive, I even needed a pair of pliers to get a stuck earring out and Sam delivered! I asked a lot of questions, but Amy smashed it out the park with the responses, we booked about 13 months in advance, so she had 13 months of my questions to answer (sorry!) but she was very helpful, not only with the whole planning but with recommendations too. We were due to see 2 other venues but cancelled after we’d been to Glewstone, it’s just stunning but what really makes it is the people and you will not find a better venue, better food, better atmosphere, or better people anywhere else. Thank you Glewstone Court, you were outstanding.
