Rowton Castle, Halfway House, Shrewsbury SY5 9EP.
Rowton Castle is located in the heart of the Shropshire countryside. It is close to the England-Wales border and sits between the towns of Shrewsbury and Welshpool.
Although we enjoy a peaceful location here at Rowton Castle, being just outside of the market town of Shrewsbury, we are quite easy to find! You may find this detailed map and directions useful, alternatively, google maps and satellite navigation will bring you to the front door.
The castle comprises 19 bedrooms including the Bridal Site. We ask couples getting married with us to allocate all bedrooms (there’s no denying that the couple will know you all better than we do and can select the most appropriate room for your stay). If you haven’t been allocated a room, don’t worry; there are plenty of lovely local B&B’s as well as larger hotels nearby. Please see our list of recommended local accommodation.
All accommodation bookings at Rowton Castle include full English breakfast the following the wedding day. Check in is from 3pm and Check out at 11am.
It is no problem to order a taxi from Rowton Castle. We recommend a number of companies based both in Shrewsbury and Welshpool. Please do book your taxi before the wedding evening where possible – this is advised for weddings taking place on any day of the week but is especially important on Friday and Saturday evenings. You can find our recommended taxi list here.
Music finishes and the bar closes to non-residents at 12.30am. You may that times between 12.30am and 12.45am most suitable when arranging your taxi.
We do not provide lunch prior to weddings. The kitchen is already in full swing at this point preparing a delicious wedding breakfast for you to all enjoy. If you fancy a snack or quick lunch before the wedding, the town of Shrewsbury is perfect for this. Just a few short miles away, there are a wide range of restaurants for all tastes.
Our bar stocks a fantastic range of larger, cider and bottled drinks as well as spirits and a selection of house wines at reasonable prices. We take card payments and accept apple pay. We do expect that drinks consumed on the premises are bought from the bar whilst open.
If you would like to bring confetti, please bring dried petals. We do not allow the use of paper confetti.
