We had our wedding here on Friday 13th October and it was absolutely fantastic, WOW, best day of our lives , we were so impressed with everything , staff were fabulous, thank you to Angel and Gareth who looked after us all on the day and also the evening, i stayed at Orchard House the night before the wedding with my maid of honour which was incredible as it took all the stress away as I didn't need to worry about getting to the venue the next day, Claire and Nicola did my hair and make up who were brilliant so I highly recommend them.The rooms were beautiful all my guests commented how nice they were, the day went so well, the weather was nice and warm so we got married outside which was unbelievable i am so lucky to have chosen such a wonderful place, thank you to all the staff that made our day magical I wish I could do it all over again, love and best wishes to you all, many thanks , Mr & Mrs Hughes xx

Dear Julie H
Thank you so much for your kind words regarding your recent wedding with us here at Rowton Castle. It was lovely to read that it was "the best day of your lives", and that it was so "magical".
I am sure that other couples will be delighted to read your feedback regarding the Orchard Suite & Tower House - The "Bridal Party House" for the night before the wedding. As you stated, to be able to relax the night before the wedding, safe in the knowledge that our team are on hand to guide you through the next 36 hours, stress free, is invaluable.
Also it was lovely to read that the weather was kind and you were able to marry in the "Linden Belvedere" within the castle grounds, surrounded by rolling countryside, with the castle as the most magnificent backdrop. The whole setting is picture perfect, so I am delighted you were able to enjoy it.
I will of course pass on you comments to the whole team, and I know Angel and Gareth will be delighted to have warranted a special mention, as will two of our local professionals Claire and Nichola who assisted with hair and makeup preparations.
Thank you once again, and thank you for choosing Rowton Castle.
With very best wishes
Bryan

We had our wedding here in October and it has been the most wonderful experience. The venue was absolutely stunning, an medieval castle exclusively used by us. The venue was totally modernised inside with great taste but also remained the characters and nice features of the castle. The service was sleek and extremely thoughtful, from wedding planning to the chiefs, and operation team on the day, everyone was so nice and went the extra mile to make sure we had a lovely day. I cannot praise enough how good this venue is!

Dear Sarah C
Thank you so much for your fabulous review, and for entrusting us with your wedding day.
It was an absolute pleasure to read that the whole day was a success, with the service "sleek and extremely thoughtful", and everyone went "the extra mile" to ensure that the day was a success. Whilst Rowton Castle is a beautiful building, offering Exclusivity and luxury to its guest, what truly sets it apart is the team of professional in-house staff who work tirelessly to ensure everyone enjoys their day; I am delighted you appreciated this.
Thank you once again, and we hope to welcome you back in the future.
With very best wishes
Bryan

We stayed at Rowton Castle for one night to celebrate my husbands birthday. Our room was perfect. The whole experience from start to finish was truly memorable. The staff are delightful and so helpful. Upon arrival, our daughter (who lives in Australia) had sent a bottle of wine to our room which was delivered with such thought, beautiful flower on the tray, nice glasses etc. After a lovely walk around the gorgeous grounds we got ready for dinner which didn't disappoint. The care and attention paid to you by the staff is commendable, food was first class and so was breakfast the following morning. We felt truly rested and reenergised after our stay and cannot recommend Rowton Castle enough.

Every aspect from accommodation, catering, service and ambience was truly amazing. The orchard suite is fantastic and Angel lived up to her name in every way possible. Our daughter had her magical dream wedding and a day none of us will ever forget. Thank you all so much for your excellent, caring and professional approach. Rowton castle is a magnificent venue only outshone by their fantastic staff.

We stopped at Rowton Castle for one night on the way to Dairy show. What a beautiful place. Atmosphere so relaxed staff so efficient nothing too much for them. Some hotels staff could do with going there to learn how to do the job properly. Professional throughout. Highly recommend it.
