    We found lumley as a venue quite by accident as it wasn't somewhere we had thought about. but from walking in the door we knew it was the venue for us! The castle is beautiful with an amazing atmosphere and it really was a dream venue to us!
    From the very start of the process the planning staff could not be more helpful. We always felt like our questions were welcomed and they were accommodating in every aspect. Our day went perfectly, the staff were amazing and the food was lovely. I can not recommend them enough.
    A massive thank you to Holly, Kim and all the staff who worked on the day xxx

    We want to say a massive thanks to you and the rest of the Weddings Team, especially Emma and Alex. The day went superbly and we really couldn’t have asked for anything more,

    All of our guests, some of which had never been to Lumley Castle, were enchanted with it, and fell in love with its unique quirkiness. I don’t think Lily has ever had so many “hello’s”.

    We feel extremely blessed that we had such an professional team working hard to create the perfect day for us, and at the head of that team was you Holly. You are so good at your job. Efficiency personified, and a 1000 thank-yous are not enough. From sorting out our precise accommodation requests, the perfect menu and drinks, my never ending calls and emails regarding trivial little details, and you did it all with a perfect blend of calm and reassurance.

    As you may remember when we first met you, we said we have been visiting Lumley for the best part of 20 years and it is always our “No 1 go-to” place whenever we have a special occasion, birthday, anniversary, ... or even just a Wednesday!

    So much so, we are coming to stay this Monday for 2 nights. We’ve had a tricky January what with one thing and another, and just need a little getaway, and Lumley feels like a home from home to us.

    So again, please accept our heartfelt thanks for giving us such a memorable day, we will never forget it.

    From the moment we went to a wedding fair at Lumley we were so impressed by the staff, service and venue that they went straight to the top of our list!

    The organisation and support before the day was top notch and we felt very safe in the hands of the wedding and operations team.

    The day itself was a dream. The staff were friendly and welcoming to our guests. They took care of everything so all my husband and I had to do was enjoy the day. They were accommodating to our wishes so our guests enjoyed themselves too.

    The venue itself is stunning and made such a good impression on our guests. It also looked amazing in photos!

    We are incredibly pleased with our experience with Lumley Castle and genuinely cannot praise it highly enough.
