Exclusive Use Castle Wedding Venue

Regional Finalists - Wedding Industry Awards 2014
Listed in AA's Britains Best Hotels
Nominated previously for "Wedding Venue of the Year" National Wedding Awards

As an Exclusive Use wedding venue, we are delighted to commit to only every hosting one wedding a day.

With Exclusive Use, the whole castle is yours from your arrival at midday, through until breakfast the following morning.  You and your guests will have the luxury of warm, sumptuously decorated period rooms to yourselves to relax in, the gentle rolling grounds to explore, and the best service that our skilled unflappable team can offer.

Exclusive Use of the castle includes the bridal suite, plus 18 beautifully appointed en-suite bedrooms, sleeping a maximum of 43 guests.  We ask that you allocate all the bedrooms to ensure that your family and close friends are accommodated and if you choose for your guests to pay for their own rooms on departure, this will be deducted from the Exclusive Use charge.

We do request that Exclusive Use is booked on any Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday or Bank Holiday, but it can be taken on any day of the week should you choose.  Sometimes celebration days such as Valentine's Day or New Years Eve occur on a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday and these days are always reserved especially for Exclusive Use, as is the Christmas period.
