We have just attended the Paul and Susie wedding and I felt compelled to contact you and say what an amazing venue you have and how completely fantastic everything you did was. The attention to detail and the customer service was exemplary. Every need was catered for and nothing was too much trouble. In particular when my son was unfortunately ill within an hour of the bride arriving …nothing was an issue and I wasn’t made to feel awkward at all. I sincerely apologise for your housekeeping having to clean up after him. The manor is out of this world location and view wise and your staff were amazing. I can’t complement you all enough.

My now husband and I got married in Old Down over the weekend. We couldn't have picked a better venue to make our dream wedding become a reality. The venue is absolutely beautiful but it is the staff inside it that made our day as relaxing and enjoyable as it possibly could be. Everyone from our wedding planners, Katie and Lucy, to the front of house manager Ellen, the outstanding chef, and every single waiter and bar staff, were extremely professional, friendly, and just amazing! The whole day went swimmingly and we didn't have to worry about one thing. And it's not just us who speak highly of Old Down, all our guests were blown away by the venue and service. I will be recommending Old Down Estate as a wedding venue to any engaged couples I know! Thank you all so much again. You rock! #mrandmrsminkov
