Reviewed 29 April 2017

As soon as we visited Rowton, we knew our wedding had to be here. The castle is simply stunning. The staff were so friendly, talented and thorough we knew we were in safe hands for our big day. Our wedding was Good Friday, 14th April 2017. Gareth took care of us throughout the day, we couldn't have wished for anyone better, absolutely top class, so chilled out and so precise, always a couple of steps ahead of us on our day whilst guiding us through it so perfectly. Keith also deserves a special mention for making the evening run so smoothly.
We got married outside, Rowton even managed to persuade the sun come out for half an hour during the ceremony! It was simply magical the whole day from start to finish, we really didn't want it to end.
Thank you so much Rowton for everything. I really couldn't recommend you enough for anyone looking for the perfect wedding day.

Room Tip: Bridal suite with the Hydro bath!

Dear Luke D
Thank you so much for entrusting us with your big day, and for your kind words regarding your recent wedding with us.
Here at Rowton Castle every member of our team works tirelessly to ensure the experience couples enjoy is second to none; I am delighted that this was your experience. It was also lovely to read that the sun made an appearance, allowing you to marry in the Linden Belvedere surrounded by rolling countryside, a truly magical setting for a wedding.
Thank you once again, and we very much hope to welcome you back in the future.
With very best wishes to you both
Bryan

Our daughter got married here at the weekend and it was an absolutely perfect day. The venue is amazing and having previously attended a taster night here we knew that everything would be well organised and they didn't disappoint. A special mention to Keith the master of ceremonies. He was brilliant talking us through the day and being a calming influence on every one. The food was very good and so was the DJ the lighting was amazing. Everyone had such a good time. Thank you Rowton we will remember the day forever.

We stayed at the castle as part of the group attending our extremely close friends wedding. The grounds are perfectly manicured and maintained and the castle and setting for the outdoor ceremony is simply fantastic. The rooms are equally stunning and spotless, not to mention quiet when you want to rest after the wedding party. The staff are over the top friendly and work like a very well oiled machine.The bride and grooms every expectations, need or request were met with ease and made it a wonderful wedding experience for them as well as all guests. Gareth made sure the whole days events were spot on and managed everything to perfection. The outdoor ceremony was flawless, albeit a little chilly weather. The food was top class as was everything else. It was hard to check-out and leave the castle as the venue was so warm and comfortable. Anyone planning a destination wedding should check it out.

Our wedding was on 10th April 2017 and thanks to Rowton we thought it was completely magical. Keith and Polly were amazing and made the whole day and evening evening run smoothly. My hubby and I didn't have to worry about a thing. We have had so many compliments from our guests about the venue, the day, the food and the staff. We would highly recommend Rowton to anyone who wants a special wedding day. We will remember our perfect day forever! Thank you so much Rowton - you were awesome right from the very first viewing that we had!! Xx

FANTASTIC Venue & AMAZING Staff meant that we had the perfect day. 18 months ago we decided to book Rowton Castle as our venue after being showed around the beautiful building and grounds also the fact that each and every member of staff from the front of house to the guys that tidied the rooms were so polite and genuinely looked happy in the work that they did.

Over the 18mths we were continually supported by Rachel, who answered all our crazy questions and put our minds at ease. The night before the wedding Laura and her family stayed in the Tower House which was a brilliant experience. I was lucky enough to be able to stay in the castle also the night before with my family and wedding party, this made the experience even better as the staff set up a table in the room where the disco is normally held, it meant that we could have an exclusive meal altogether and it helped put the nerves at ease.

Being at the castle for both myself and Laura the morning of our wedding was lovely, the staff again were faultless and a MASSIVE shout out to Polly, who looked after Laura and myself throughout the day and Lewis who had the joys of looking after us into the early hours...

The day itself,as nearly all married couples would say, was the best day of our lives but this was made so so true by the venue being a WOW factor, the fantastic staff throughout with their amazing customer service and support and not forgetting the tasty food both during the day and the elephant sized hog roast in the evening.

Thank you to all the Staff for helping make our special day the best day of our lives.

Dear Laura & Dave
Thank you so much for your comprehensive, lovely review of your recent wedding with us here at Rowton Castle. It is an honour for couples to entrust us with their big day, a responsibility we do not take lightly, and I am delighted we delivered throughout the day and evening with all aspects.
The key that you highlight which we believe is our biggest asset here at the castle is the team of hard working and dedicated professionals who are on hand for your every need. The majority of our "fantastic" team have been with us for over 10 years, and I am so pleased that their "fautless, amazing customer service" shone through.
Thank you once again, and we very much hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back in the future.
With very best wishes
Bryan
