Our daughters wedding
We walked in to reception to be met by a courteous young man who couldn't be more helpful and this was to continue throughout our stay all the staff were efficient and obliging with a ready smile nothing was too much trouble. It's so refreshing to see staff appear to happy in their work. This was our Daughter’s wedding and the wedding coordinator Vicky went above and beyond to ensure every little detail was met. The rooms were beautiful warm and clean. And the food was another level, absolutely delicious both in the brasserie at dinner the epic buffet breakfast and the wedding breakfast and buffet was out of this world. A million thankyous xxxx

A note of thanks
Dear Vicky, James and I wanted to send a quick note to thank all of you for being part of our wonderful wedding in September. Everyone says that getting married is the best day of your life, but nothing prepared me for how absolutely amazing the day was….it exceeded my expectations! Everybody at Bowden Hall were brilliant in ensuring that every little detail was perfect and catered for, you guys made it and we thank you…we’d particularly want to single out a few people who stood out and made the weekend memorable…..Solvegia and Nathan, for checking us all in and being so excited! Rachel, for organising us all on the day and keeping me calm(ish)….apologies for my tears and language!!! The girls who manned the evening buffet….you guys were great having a little dance whilst manning your stations! And finally, of course, yourself Vicky….for pretty much organising EVERYTHING!!! Thank you all so much, you will all be in our memories forever as will Bowden Hall. All our love Kerry and James Xx

"Thank you"
Long time no speak hehe! Just wanted to reach out and say a massive thank you, to you and everyone who made our day so perfect. We can not tell you how much we appreciated everything you did for us, all of your help and guidance. Can’t actually believe a month has passed, wish we could do it all over again. Hopefully our paths will cross again, but until then keep safe and keep doing what you do (because you’re amazing at it). Josie & Connor xxx

"Excellent wedding venue"
Held my daughter’s wedding reception here in August. We also had quite a few rooms booked too including Bridal suite. Easy review, simply outstanding. With dedicated help all through the planning with Victoria to the day itself & after service. Beautiful grounds, lovely hotel & rooms, good food & impeccable service. Cannot recommend highly enough Mark, a happy Father of the Bride

"The most perfect wedding 👰🏻"
We had our wedding on the 31st July 21 it was perfect Bowden hall have been fantastic especially through a pandemic and having to postpone so many times they went above and beyond for us especially Vicky the wedding coordinator. Our guests said how lovely the food was. The waiting staff were friendly especially Steve he went above and beyond for us and has been there from meetings to menu tastings and then on our special day. Was a beautiful day and I wish we could do it all again . Thank you Bowden Hall for being so fantastic.
