My daughter got married at Rowton Castle in November and it was an excellent occasion from beginning to end.
Rowton Castle is a beautiful venue and at this time of the year it looks stunning with all the Christmas decorations. Food was wonderful and the rooms spacious and very cl

Dear kayak22 Thank you for taking the time to share your experience of your daughters wedding here at Rowton Castle in November. It was lovely to read that the food was wonderful, and the rooms spacious and very clean. It was also great to see that you particularly liked the stunning Christmas Decorations. Winter weddings are fabulous and very popular here at the castle. Decorations are placed from late November until early January, and there are plenty of Christmas Trees - even a 30ft one lit at the front of the castle. The decorations are enhanced from year to year, and it may be that next year snow covered real Christmas Trees become an option for table centres, and maybe even real snow outside on demand! Lets wait and see what the team develop for 2019. Thank you once again, and we very much hope to welcome you back in the future. With very best wishes to you all, Bryan

We were married here on 06/12/2016 and we aim to visit every year on our anniversary, so second post wedding trip. Can it get any better? It is perfect. The welcome, the atmosphere, the bedroom, the meal, the breakfast, I don’t think it can be improved upon. Oh! Yes, I have found

Myself and Damien had our wedding here on 22/11/2018. To say it was perfect, would be an absolute understatement. From the second we booked, everything was all in hand and nothing was too much trouble. Gareth was absolutely amazing! He made sure everything ran smoothly and kept c

Dear Victoria & Damien Thank you so very much for your kind words regarding your recent wedding with us here at Rowton Castle. I was delighted to read that whilst everything was "absolutely amazing", you particularly liked the Tower House & Orchard Suite, enabling you to stay the night before the wedding, safe in the knowledge you could relax, have a fabulous nights sleep, and wake refreshed for the day ahead. It was also very nice of you to mention Si Medlicott, your photographer on the day; I know he will be appreciative of the recommendation! All I can say is it was our absolute pleasure to take care of you both from beginning to end, and we very much hope to welcome you back in the future. With very best wishes Bryan

How much is a pint at the bar? What beers do they have?
I can't answer re the cost of the beers, but I can say they have a good selection of beers including craft beers. I believe they have two bars, one bar inside one bar outside. The staff are very friendly so I'm sure if you called the Rowton castle they would answer your questions probably better than myself. It's a beautiful place to visit.

Can we drive up to the entrance ? I'm travelling with a wheelchair user
Yes you can. Then you can park in the adequate car park. It’s a little incline from the car park so be mindful. Hope this helps.

We are trying to put together a short list of venues for our wedding ceremony that will be for possibly just 25 people and live a distance from Rowton Castle. I have read lovely reviews about this venue and would appreciate comments from those who have their weddings here more recently that will help us narrow down our selection. Thank you in advance.
Our exclusive use wedding in march was fantastic, see reviee, I think the advice to go to an open day is good, what I'd say about exclusive use though is that you effectively pay a specific cost element for that, it's not I don't think tied to guest numbers which are then charged on top per head, so effectively your buying 19 bedrooms, then the wedding elements.
