    Thank You all so very much for giving us the most

    From the start of coming to view the Castle, your kindness and hospitality has been amazing. Sharon did a fab job at helping us organise the most perfect day imaginable, and very prompt with replying to emails and speaking with us about anything we needed; this made the whole process run so much smoother, cut down on the stress, and I think that it really showed on the day just how well everything came together. We are so proud to have had our Wedding at your venue and would recommend it to anyone for future weddings. It was 1000 x better than we could have ever imagined.

    It was the most amazing day of both our lives!

    Sharon, your help and support throughout the whole planning and wedding weekend was really great. Thank you so much for making sure that I had ticked all the boxes at every step of the way.

    The Castle grounds, the Hall and Banqueting Hall looked stunning and judging by the photos so far, made an amazing backdrop for all the pictures. And the sun shone just at the right moment! One of our friends summed up the feelings of all the guests with her guestbook comment - a day of deep, deep style.

    The day of our lives

    Having had time to think and absorb the emotions, the event and the memories created, I can honestly say that I don't think anywhere in the UK can come close to what Bickleigh Castle has to offer for putting together the perfect wedding. It's not just the venue of quaint country cottages flanked with rich historic castle structures that provide space for grand occasions, nor is it the surrounding area of the very best of Devon's countryside, nor is it the exceptional staff that the castle has, who were always on hand to make our day run smoothly and effortlessly, but all of these things that worked together so well that made our day the most fun, emotional, enjoyable, entertaining day of our lives.
