Fantastic wedding venue

The Alverton was such a beautiful venue. The food was delicious, the staff were brilliant, the rooms were gorgeous; we couldn't have wished for a better location for our wedding. I would highly recommend you visit and talk to Nikki, the wedding planner, who is fab. Our day went better than we ever could have imagined.

wonderfully romantic and expertly organised

With its gothic hall, the alverton is a great alternative to a church. Nothing was too much trouble and there is always someone on hand to help what more does a stressed out bride need?
