Incredible venue with incredible staff

An absolutely beautiful venue, rich with history and perfectly organised. The whole team were super helpful and couldn't do enough for us. The venue is beyond beautiful and would definitely recommend having a private tour to learn the history.

sheer perfection

Had the most perfect wedding reception here for our daughter's wedding in December 2014. From our first visit to the castle, to the wedding day(and all the visits in between) we were made so welcome and the personal service of the wedding planner, Hanna, was second to none.
Nothing was too much trouble and the food was amazing. It's such a beautiful venue and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
