Stunning and beautiful location
Venue Service

By Sonia & Darren Smith, on 26 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 18 Aug 2018

Such a beautiful Castle location for our wedding we loved every minute spent at this truly special place, we made so many precious memories and it was everything we dreamed of and much more. We had a very small intimate wedding with just 12 guests everyone stayed in the Castle and we felt so relaxed and welcomed by the hosts Abbie and Daniel who set out the great hall for our ceremony in front of the roaring fire so beautifully and changed the layout for dinner and the evening, they made the whole day so stress free and nothing was too much trouble for them they were the kindest and most perfect of hosts. All the guests were so comfortable and the rooms so unique and comfortable. The guests have not stopped talking about the wedding location and the special feeling we all have about our day and the stunning location and views.

A Perfect Idyl With Wonderful Hosts
Venue Service

By Amanda Jarvie, on 03 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 01 Jun 2018

We got married here - and it is one of the most beautiful, perfect places I have ever stayed. Everything about it is better than you could ever imagine. The castle itself is immaculate. Absolutely stunning and beautifully restored. Each of the rooms is unique, furnished with such style and grace, the fabrics are gorgeous. The beds are unbelievably comfortable. The best mattress ever. But more than that, Abbie and Danny, the hosts, are just the loveliest, warmest couple - and their welcome was probably what made us book in the first place. We actually went to see the castle, not expecting to love it, and when Abbie opened the door she greeted us with a lovely big smile and couldn't wait to show us around. We met Danny too - and that was it. We knew we wanted to get married in the Great Hall, and that Abbie and Danny would help make our day extra special. Which they did. Our stay was perfect, all the little touches that Abbie does were great. Breakfast is immense. Love Danny's fruit salad. And the cooked breakfast was enormous. We had afternoon tea on the day =- fabulous. And a wonderful evening, with the castle all to ourselves. We have already booked for our anniversary next year.

Barcaldine Castle Wedding
Venue Service

By Arianna Pretorius, on 20 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 26 May 2018

We had our wedding at Barcaldine in May 2018. It is a fantastic, classy venue for a small wedding. Abbie and Daniel were wonderful hosts and made sure our day went smoothly and that the guests were happy. We had both the ceremony and reception at the castle and both were set up beautifully and went along without any issues. The castle is very impressive and the rooms are very luxurious and comfortable. All of our guests loved the venue and the those who stayed in the castle all loved their rooms. I cannot recommend the castle highly enough!
