Stunning Wedding!
The events team at the Castle are fantastic. Louise looked after us for our Wedding in between Christmas and New Year 2017. The venue is spectacular, the events team are there to answer any queries and their enthusiasm is fantastic, nothing is too much trouble. The preparations were made hassle free and on the day, we could not have wished for more! We chose one of the packages which are fantastic value and got ,arrived in the stunning Wisteria room. Afterwards we headed into the lobby for bubbles and nibbles which allowed our gusts to mingle and take photographs. We had our wedding breakfast in the Garden Room. The food was top notch, the service was nothing short of fantastic and we had the most fantastic day. We would not have changed a thing!! I cannot rate the team at the Castle highly enough!

Our Wedding Day
Thank you so much. We had an absolutely fantastic day. Afternoon tea was perfect and we took some home 😀. Thanks for making our wedding planning so much easier and guiding me through what I needed to do... I was a novice!! Haha I will be back for afternoon tea again soon! I have learnt a lot about weddings now though, and everything ran smoothly.

Our Wedding at The Castle
Thank you so much for all your help with our wedding, we were so happy that we chose the Castle Hotel for our reception, every step was made easy by you and the day was perfect- great service and we loved the garden for the photographs ( a hidden gem I feel). It was also great staying overnight and we made use of the little snug bar area. We are more than happy to recommend the Castle for any events!
