The best possible wedding experience!
Venue Service

By Rob Grundy, on 06 Jan 2020Date of Wedding - 10 Aug 2019

From the first time we enquired about a tour of the venue to the last goodbye when we collected everything on the Sunday it has just been the best possible experience. A venue that has it all; grand rooms, amazing gardens, rustic coach house and owners who are so easy to work with who go above and beyond for you and your guests! must check out this venue!

A fantastic venue with beautiful grounds
Venue Service

By Patrick Lee, on 06 Jan 2020Date of Wedding - 27 Jul 2019

Rownhams House made a fantastic venue for our wedding. The grounds were beautiful and allowed our guests to spend plenty of time outside- plus there were lots of excellent spots for photos. The coach house made for an excellent reception, with plenty of space for guests to spread out and do what they wanted (dance, chat, eat, etc) without all being confined to one space. Nigel and Helen also went above and beyond to support us, they were very involved in helping us with planning and with keeping everything smooth on the day itself. They were friendly and professional throughout. I cannot recommend Rownhams enough!

A magical day

We cannot thank Nigel and Helen enough for enabling us to have a magical day! The venue is simply stunning ?? and having the option to get married both inside and out is a bonus.

We could not have asked for better day
Venue Service

By Theresa Gear, on 06 Jan 2020Date of Wedding - 06 Jul 2019

We cannot recommend this venue highly enough. We held our wedding here and had the most perfect day. Nigel and Helen were fantastic hosts and were there every step of the way from initially giving us a tour of the venue to replying promptly to any queries we had. They were reassuring at our final run through and supported in decorating the venue and even fanned my dress prior to my walk down the aisle!! The weather was on our side on the last week and we changed to getting wed in the garden and they helped us order in what we needed and how it would run. The grounds, the house and coach house are stunning. We had so many compliments on the venue. The staff were brilliant they were polite, discreet and gave a great service. Thank you Team Rownhams, we could not have asked for a better day! I only wish we could do it all again

The most perfect wedding venue
Venue Service

By Alex Wales, on 06 Jan 2020Date of Wedding - 22 Jun 2019

Rownhams House was the most perfect venue for our wedding. The house, grounds and coach house are beautiful. Nigel and Helen are such lovely people and went above and beyond to look after us on our day. I would highly recommend Rownhams House for a wedding!

The best day ever
Venue Service

By Charlie Bailey, on 06 Jan 2020Date of Wedding - 18 May 2019

We had our evening reception in the coach house at Rownhams House on 18th May 2019 and I can honestly say it was the best day ever. Everything went perfectly and that is in no small part due to Nigel and Helen at Rownhams. From our initial phone conversation, right the way through to after-the-event finalities, both Nigel and Helen have been attentive, pragmatic, accommodating and thoughtful. If there were any hitches on the day (excuse the pun), then we weren't aware - they took care of everything in collaboration with our best man, bridesmaids and caterer and we were free to really relax and enjoy the day. The venue itself is absolutely beautiful and in particular the outdoor space suited our needs down to the ground (we had at least 35 children running around!). We cannot recommend this venue enough, and want to thank Nigel and Helen for their wonderful service! Many, many thanks for a truly unforgettable experience! Charlie and Phil x
