Without a doubt, the most perfect venue

I've tried to write this review several times but I don't feel any words can do justice to the wonderful family and team behind this venue.

We knew how perfect Glewstone Country House was the second we arrived for our first viewing. Gary is a warm and proud introduction to the venue and how things are run. It was so obvious that they welcomed you like family.

Emily and Joel answered all my emails quickly and in depth which meant we were able to book the right date for us and let the wedding planning begin!

Amy was a pleasure to organise our wedding with, her guidance helped bring our vision in to reality.

We arrived the day before our wedding and were greeted by Charles who makes the effort to get to know each guest individually and continuously ensured everyone had everything they needed.

Sam couldn't do enough to help and made everyone, from our children to our grandparents feel appreciated and at ease. Sam and Charles together walked around with smiles on their faces and made sure the wedding morning went completely as planned from the smallest of details. We had nothing to worry about and were able to sit back and really enjoy our day.

The venue itself is stunning and perfectly suited to what we were looking for for our wedding day. The rooms were decorated beautifully, spacious and clean. Especially the bridal suite! The food was wonderful with more than enough (even for our picky eaters and big appetites!)

Absolutely everybody, including our suppliers, couldn't praise the venue and team highly enough. Thank you so much for being such a wonderful part of our day. We really can't thank you enough for being such amazing hosts.

The most incredible day!

We cannot thank Glewstone Court enough for giving us the most beautiful experience for our wedding day. The beauty of the venue, the wonderful staff and the warm feeling we had as soon as we visited Glewstone is what drew us to it immediately!
Right from the start of the wedding day we were met with such care and attention to detail. Even though it was raining, the whole team did everything they could to make sure that everyone was happy and settled and I really didn’t think twice about the weather! The interior of the venue was so elegant, with the fires lit and the gorgeous, tall windows making us feel like the outside was part of the inside. It was truly beautiful!
The bridal party were greeted by Sam, who immediately helped me in with my umbrella! We cannot thank Sam enough for the incredible care and support he provided to the whole wedding party from start to finish. He was so helpful, attentive and made us feel so welcome. Everyone commented on how wonderful the whole team were during the day, they really went above and beyond!
All guests have commented on how amazing the day was. The food was absolutely delicious and the rooms were incredible.
We all had such an amazing day filled with smiles, fun and laughter. It is a day we will cherish forever and we cannot thank Glewstone Court enough for that!
Diolch!

Above and beyond

My wife and I had every engauged couples worst fears come true. Just one week before our big day, our venue cancelled on us after 14 months worth of planning.
We didn't know at the time, but this proved to be far from a disaster, and was instead a blessing in disguise.
This, at the time, devistating news, lead us on the path to a day far better than we could have imagined.
Gary, Sam, Joel, Amy, and Charles, with only a weeks notice, managed to deliver us a day that looked as though it had been planned for months. The team at Glewstone Court worked tirelessly, cancelled personal time off, and went above and beyond to give us the most wonderful day.
We truly can't thank Gary and Sam's team enough.
The food was elegantly presented and delicious, the service was outstanding, and the location and venue itself are truly beautiful.
We can't recommend Glewstone court enough. If you are lucky enough to secure a date at this wonderful venue, you will not regret it. Be prepared to have your expectations blown out of the water!

Best day EVER!!

We chose Glewstone Court for our wedding, and we were all so blown away by how incredible it was in every possible way.

They went above and beyond in every sense, Charles and Sam in particular were amazing on the big day. Everyone said how brilliant they were. It was certainly a joy to have people so cool, calm, and collected on such a crazy day!

We'd been speaking with Amy prior to the big day, and she was so lovely and knowledgeable that it made planning an absolute dream.

Gary was very polite and friendly, and it was lovely to meet him. At a lot of venues, you don't often see the owners, but it's lovely that he's so hands on here and it's clear that he (and everyone else) really do care and always give 100%.

We would recommend Glewstone Court to anyone, and we can't wait to return in the future! It's such a wonderful building, and the location is stunning.

We booked for 48 hours, and everyone commented on how beautiful the food was at every meal.

The rooms were beautiful and clean, very luxurious and lots of space! Decor is very tasteful and we were all made to feel very welcome.

We really feel like it wasn't "just another wedding", there was a real personal touch, and that made it all the more special. Thank you all so much.

A Perfect venue for a perfect day

We had an absolutely amazing day. The venue was perfect, the food was outstanding, the team at Glewstone looked after everyone so well and the whole day ran like clockwork. It was everything we could have hoped for. We especially wanted to thank our MC, Charles, who did such an amazing job, keeping his cool whilst performing what must be an incredibly stressful role. He was completely unflappable and had a smile on his face the whole time. What a remarkable young man!

Look no further!

We booked the two night package in December 2023 and have absolutely no regrets!! It was amazing to have our close friends and family be with us the evening before the big day.

A massive thank you for everything throughout the two days!

Amy, thank you for getting back to us so quickly throughout the whole process. It was refreshing to have someone so polite and prompt at all times.

Sam, yourself and Charles were honestly some of the best people we have worked with in any situation. All the way through it seemed as though you all cared how everything was going and it really meant a lot.

We only wish we could do it all again!

Roger Wedding 07.11.23

Glewstone Court Country House, a canvas of enchantment for our 7/11 wedding. The front-of-house team—Laurie, Vanessa, and Gus—imbued the occasion with not just assistance but genuine kindness and passion. The buffet-style family dinner granted us uninterrupted moments, and coordinators Sam and Charles orchestrated a flawless execution of plans.

Amy's meticulous pre-day planning and Sam and Charles's attention to detail ensured our day unfolded seamlessly, embodying the team's authentic care for us as a couple. The venue's breathtaking beauty defies words, with charmingly synced rooms and a bridal suite that became a haven for preparations. Special thanks to Sue for preserving the venue's pristine charm.

Ollie and Rich crafted a culinary experience in the adaptable kitchen that surpassed expectations. The menu's flexibility allowed for a personalized touch, enhancing our overall delight.

Heartfelt gratitude extends to the entire team, with Gary overseeing it all. Special appreciation to Amy, Sam, Charles, Laurie, Vanessa, Gus, Ollie, Rich, Sue, and Gary for perfecting our day. Glewstone Court has etched itself into our hearts.

And to Glewstone – where do we begin? You've been nothing short of perfect. Every staff member, responsive in planning, understanding, and proactive in realizing our wedding vision. The day before, their drive and motivation in helping set up the venue were remarkable.

To our wedding coordinators—Amy, Gary, Sam, and Charles—thank you for making our day seamless and transforming our dream into reality. Glewstone, we can't wait to return.

Gratefully,
Jess & Al Roger

What can we say - the team are phenomenal! The communication from Amy and Gary were wonderful throughout the planning stages and we were well looked after by Sam, Charles and the team on the day and evening prior to our big day. Nothing was too much; they are the perfect balance between attentive and giving us privacy throughout our stay. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, the food and atmosphere were fantastic, the rooms were clean, well equipped and added an amazing sense of luxury - the bridal suite is AMAZING! We could not have wished for a better day, thank you so much all for an amazing experience from start to finish - we will certainly be returning in the future for your dinner evenings and look forward to seeing you all again as Mr and Mrs 😊

The best day of our lives!

From start to finish Glewstone court was the perfect wedding venue for us and all of our guests! The food was incredible, the rooms are absolutely stunning and the photos we have from this beautiful place are stunning! The main reason for us choosing this venue was not only for the intimate wedding that we wanted but also the exclusivity of this venue and the fact we had it all to ourselves from the Friday to the Sunday. All of our guests absolutely loved the venue and had an amazing time. Honestly our wedding day was the best and honestly I couldn’t wish for anything more, everyone at glewstone made our day so special from Sam checking in on me every hour to see how me and my bridal party were getting on to topping up our Prosecco right to the last dance. Amy our wedding co ordinator wax absolutely amazing and couldn’t have done any more to make our day the best it was. Me and my husband are so grateful to everyone at Glewstone court for making our day so special, Gary honestly you have the best wedding venue in the world and your team are fantastic. Thank you so much for everything and we are very lucky to have been part of the Glewstone family for our big special day. Thank you.

Mr and Mrs Kirkpatrick.

Fantastic, absolutely great service beautiful location and food.

We had our wedding at Glewstone at the weekend.
Everything was perfect from start to finish.
Sam was absolutely brilliant, I tried not to be a bridezilla about anything. We had loads of laughs with the organisation, everyone commented on the venue, the food and the rooms. We couldn't have asked for more.

An unforgettable wedding day

The whole team at Glewstone were incredible in their running of both the wedding day and the planning stages. Our wedding was made to be a stress free experience from booking to the last song of the night, allowing us to enjoy our day to the full. Their flexibility was appreciated with last minute guest changes and being able to make each aspect of the day feel like our own.

The venue is stunning with great views over the orchard and a lovely interior with plenty of options for photos. Having both an indoor and outdoor area meant there was plenty of space for guests to relax in different settings. The food during the day was excellent with any dietary requirements well cater for. The bedrooms are beautifully decorated making for a very comfortable stay.

We couldn't recommend Glewstone enough, for both the venue and its owners! I wish we could do it all over again!

The most magical day of our lives!

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for making our Wedding Day so amazing! It was everything we wished for and more. We had so many lovely comments from our guests about how gorgeous the venue is but also how fantastic the staff were. One of our wants for our day was for it not to feel as though it was just another wedding. You all went above and beyond to make it so special and personal.

Gary, thank you for showing us around your beautiful venue and helping us with the initial enquiry. It was great to see you again on Saturday.

Amy, thank you for being there every step of the way through the planning process. You were always there to answer questions and helped put me at ease many a time.

Karen, thank you for making the venue look so pretty with all of the decorations. The staircase looked absolutely beautiful! It was lovely to have met you on Friday.

Rachel & the whole Wedding team, thank you for making our day run like clockwork. You were all fantastic and all worked so hard to make our day simply the best!

And last but by no means least, thank you Sam. You were brilliant. We felt like you took control of everything and nothing was too much trouble. All the stress was taken away! Everyone thought you were a legend 😁 Our guests loved the fact you knew their names and said how lovely and friendly you were. Thank you for making our day run so smoothly. From the moment we checked in, we knew we were in good hands. A big thank you for making sure we didn’t have a casualty during our Wedding breakfast too! We will forever be grateful for your help.

We wish you all the best for the future and hope the transition into a Wedding only venue next April goes extremely well for you all. You are all incredible at your jobs and as stunning as it is, Glewstone Court would not be the same with out you all.

Thank you for making our Wedding Day the best ever!

Our perfect day

Hi Sam & team!

Rich and I just wanted to thank you for your hospitality during our wedding this weekend! We have honestly had the most amazing time.

Sam- you really couldn't do enough for us and we are so grateful of your efforts. From the moment I arrived on the Thursday you were on the ball and attentive. We've had so many compliments from our guests on the venue, the food & your hospitality! Even down to the finer details of getting to know peoples names. We appreciate the numerous trips to the bridal suite and bringing an even number of plates to eliminate Chrissies OCD 🤣.

We felt very much at home and a part of the glewstone family, so thank you for everything. Hopefully, neither rich nor I will end up getting married again!! But if we did, I'd certainly choose glewstone again in a heartbeat!

Thank you for making our day so special. I know you've played all sort of roles this weekend, from being one of the girls, being called a body builder by my mum & being hounded by Matt and his sambuca shots!

I can leave you in peace now, without anymore checklists or spreadsheets!

Thanks again. We really had the best day!

Mr & Mrs Snowzell !

Perfection

The Glewstone team made our whole wedding experience joyful and stress-free, from the planning stage to the moment we left the morning after our perfect reception. They are wonderfully accommodating, the venue is stunning, the food is divine, and my guests (genuinely) said it was the most enjoyable wedding they’d ever attended.

In particular, we cannot praise Sam enough, who made all our plans a reality. “Thank you” doesn’t seem adequate.

Seriously. Take a bride’s advice. If you’re looking for the BEST wedding package in the Ross area, look no farther than Glewstone.

If I could choose one day to live over and over again for the rest of my life, it would be my wedding day. Every single second was perfectly happy.

Glewstone: The best people in the world all under one roof!

From the moment we randomly swung by just to take a look, we were utterly captivated. Glewstone Court is not only a beautiful family-run home, but it is filled with the most wonderful supporting staff and chefs. Gary Homewood, the owner, is just lovely, and so kind and flexible. Of all the venues we'd seen, this was the only one that was truly flexible and willing to give us whatever we wanted; evidence of this is how they adapted during COVID and did not pass the cost to the customer - it is absolutely clear how passionate the Homewood family is about giving you your best day. On the day itself, Sam was exceptional; his attention to detail rivalled my own! Never without a smile, there was no job too big or small for him, and what a sense of humour! We booked for the whole weekend with our guests arriving on Friday for an incredible pre-wedding dinner, then the day itself was nothing short of spectacular. Leaving after brunch on Sunday was profoundly emotional after having a home from home all weekend. Our friends have not stopped talking about it since! Words simply cannot express our gratitude and we hope to be friends of Glewstone for life.
