An absolutely brilliant day from start to finish. Staff from day one were amazing, so helpful, nothing was a problem. Duty Managers were great too and the day could not have been more perfect! All our guests loved it, loved the venue, loved the food and said how fab the staff were. Thank you for making our day all we dreamed of and more.

We fell in love with the venue and so did all of our guests. The staff were wonderful and although this is your business everyday, you still made us feel incredibly special.

To everyone at Cooling Castle Barn, We cannot thank you enough for making our wedding the most perfect day ever. Every single member of staff was fantastic and could not have done any more for us. So many of our guests commented it was the best wedding they had been to, from the food to the beautiful grounds! Please give our special thanks to our Toastmaster & Duty Manager who both made our day so magical and were just brilliant! Thank you again

Good evening, Having just returned from your venue following the wedding of Mr & Mrs Pryor, I honestly have to say I am simply spell bound and in amazement of the shear delight of the day. Our room was spotless, you would be hard pressed to find a spec of dust in the accommodation and for me that is a credit. The room was well equipped and spacious, fresh linen on the bed and ample tea & coffee to be enjoyed. Breakfast in the morning, wow, I walked out of the breakfast room & tweeted #fullenglishbreakfast - it was one of the best I had ever eaten. Your gardens are a simple credit to you and your staff. From the lady cutting the dead heads off to the young lad going round each area by hand and sweeping up every inch of debris from the previous evenings wedding. Total attention to detail. The food was amazing, so well cooked and tasty. The salmon was lovely and a huge size fillet. The evening was a lovely event, the bar staff very friendly and the bar prices did not reflect your venue nor the exclusive clients that you have! I felt the prices were excellent and excellent value for money. I have spent a number of years in hotels and from being in your venue as a guest, I can simply say I never once came across a miserable member of the team. Every member of staff wanted to help you, serve you, look after you and most importantly ensure you leave happy. I want to say a huge thank you as I have walked away amazed at your venue, food, grounds and most importantly your staff and their service.

Everything was just perfect and the Toastmaster was great. The food was fantastic and everyone commented on it. The accommodation was lovely and staff couldnt be more nice. I was disappointed about not having the wedding outside but I think it ended up being so much nicer inside. Thank you so much! Mr & Mrs Brooks Dartford, Kent

Hi All, I attended a wedding a few years back and fell in love with your venue, no matter what it cost I wanted my wedding at Cooling Castle Barn. So in September 2011 I secured my date for this year. From day one you have all been amazing, we have been very impressed with the quality of service you have given. The girls in the office were great, helping me out with my planner and making sure all appointments were booked. They were always there when I needed a question answered. This continued right up until the wedding day. The planner was a great tool, helped me keep on track of my planning and really helped me set out how the day was going to go and the bonus was that it was sooooooo easy to use. On the day, what can I say! 2 weeks later and im still getting emotional when I think about the day i've waited for for 15 years......waiting this long I had high expectations for a perfect day and I was truly not disappointed. When people ask us about our wedding, I describe it as magical and thats also down to the work and effort the staff put in to make the day. Sorry for the long email lol, I wanted to express how you met and exceeded my expectations and made a special day very magical!
