We were booked here as part of a tour and found it quite special. We had an enormous room and bath, decorated in over-the-top "castle" decor and were most comfortable. Our room overlooked the gardens and we had the treat of first hearing, then seeing, a piper "pipe" a bride and groom to a photo spot. The staff was pleasant...

Dear Reviewer, thank you. It is rewarding when we receive a compliment from a client that has enjoyed our hospitality other than a wedding. I realise most reviews here relate to weddings or celebrations, but once you have been here you will realise we are far more than a wedding venue. We organise personal guided tours of the castle where...

Dear Reviewer. Well where do I start? We hold regular wedding fares, which allow potential couples to see what we provide, and more importantly what our recommended suppliers supply. Our next one is on Sunday 15th September 2013 from 1pm-5pm, and the dome will be here; a very unusual option for a marquee,- and a lot cheaper. There are numerous...

Dear Reviewer. Thank you. I know from talking to guests that many read these reviews, which from some part of their decision to book here.

Dear Reviewer, thank you for this. There are a number of weddings we host here that just marry and enjoy our facilities, but do not stay with us. Often agents do not explain that we provide not only the ceremony, but also catering and accommodation, which is sometimes too late for couples to change their arrangements. If you do organise...

Dear Reviewer, thank you. Every day here is different. Every client is unique. Sometimes when we host intimate weddings (you need a minimum of two!) it can make the most memorable memories, for you and staff. The one thing that is common to all groups is what people refer to as bespoke- you tell us what you want, and we...
