    I would recommend you whole heartedly

    Coming from Kent I had no knowledge about the venue and had only seen photos that had been taken by my son.
    Well all I can say is wow they could not have made the day more perfect for them.
    Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff from the moment we arrived to the moment we left.
    The food was perfect as we were there for two nights we had a hot and cold buffet on the first night, breakfast had everything you could want and our wedding breakfast was superb.
    We had the brides two young children with us and again the staff gave so much time to them.
    All I can finish saying Rowton is keep up the good work and I would recommend you whole heartedly and THANK YOU for making our day perfect.

    Venue is stunning, a dream location!

    I got married this week at Rowton Castle, and it was the wedding of my dreams! All our guests commented on how calm and smooth the day ran. My partner and I didn't have to worry about a thing, it was all taken care of. The staff did keep checking in with us to make sure we were happy with the order of the day, layout of the room etc. just to make sure everything went perfectly and it did. In particular, Gareth was the most amazing help, he is a credit to the staff and venue. He was on top of everything, so talented and you could tell he really cared about his role. He definitely stood out to us, very professional! The venue is 10/10, so stunning, a dream location! Thank you for having us.

    The Late Availability Package is the best thing

    Myself and my HUSBAND (ahhhh) got married here on Monday 6th Jan 2020 and I don't have enough words to thank all of the staff for all they have done. The little touches and the expertise of the staff was incredible. We utilised the 'Late Package' which is the best thing in the world- well without exaggeration, we wouldn't have been able to get married without this and we will always be grateful to Rowton for allowing us our perfect day. Can't recommend enough!!
