    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.
