Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
How can I choose just one! There are so many wonderful weddings that we host at The Castle, everyone is so different but the end goal is the same. Marrying the love of your life.
What’s your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Sit down and be honest with each other about what you want from your day. My biggest tip is to list your priorities against a budget. You'll be surprised to find what is most important to your partner, and you need to agree how to best spend your budget.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
The Groom etched the date and their names on hand-carved wooden hearts which were part of the table decorations.
Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.
Timeless. Elegant. Romantic. Historic. Affordable.

Our biggest secret here at The Castle is our wonderful Norman Rose Garden, the BEST place for pictures, especially when everything is in bloom.
Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?
Well, that would be telling!
What’s your favourite canapé?
Goats Cheese with Pine Nut and Beetroot - perfect on a warm summers day.
