    Awful experience, do not hire this venue!!

    So where do i start....we fell in love with the place as soon as we saw it, and agreed we'd stretch the budget for our August wedding as hiring this place certainly isn't cheap.

    The owner made us all sorts of promises in terms of sourcing discounted suppliers for the alcohol, catering, marquee etc. She told us to trust her, as she could provide certain prices to fit within our budget. Little did we know, these prices were non existent, so when we contacted her suggested suppliers, they all gave us higher costs. We had no choice but to proceed - although we realised she'd been economical with the truth, we'd already paid the deposit on the castle which was non refundable. We'd also agreed to purchase all alcohol through her, as she promised she could easily provide it within the budget we specified - we even have this in writing on an email from her. But, low and behold, she doubled the price with no explanation!!

    The icing on the cake (no pun intended) was when she refused to refund our £750 security deposit - this is still ongoing. Nearly 3 weeks after the wedding, she sent us a hostile email making falsified claims....no phone call, no discussion, just a rude and horrible email full of accusations.

    Honestly, worst experience of our lives. We had a wonderful wedding day, but if you value honest and straightforward people to hand your money over to, then avoid this place like the plague.

    Walton Castle's reply:

    I am certainly surprised to receive this review
    We bent over backwards for Anisha and had more meetings with her than any other bride ever !
    Let me answer her accusations !
    - re alcohol we have a bar at the castle and although we allow clients to bring an agreed amount of alcohol corkage free like the majority of venues we provide the alcohol
    Pre pandemic/ Brexit we were able to source excellent wine at a great price from France ! By the time of Anisha’s wedding this option was no longer open
    We offered her great wines at a sensible price however in the end she chose to go down the route of paying g a corkage per head charge to bring her own drinks ! We also provided £100.00 of disposable glasses free of charge.
    - Anisha’s plans changed constantly as a result of the pandemic and we tried our best to accommodate throughout
    - a typical example of how flexible we were was to allow her Indian catering company use of our main kitchen to provide her food !
    Caterers usually bring their own kitchen / vans etc to prepare and serve food as we do not charge a commission !
    Unfortunately her harassed caterers spilt food and oil on my front door stone steps !
    What a hideous nightmare ! We have consulted with a top stonemasonary company to find a way of cleaning or worst case scenario replacing these steps
    We are awaiting a quote from them whereupon we will revert back to the bride for her comments
    Walton Castle is not merely a venue but also one of my homes so we all take great pride in keeping it beautiful and well kept as I’m sure you can all understand
    The damage deposit will be discussed once the damage that occurred at this wedding is assessed

    The perfect location...

    Walton Castle, was for us, the perfect location for our wedding. We hired the Castle over the august bank holiday weekend and stretched our wedding celebrations out over four days which allowed us to really relax and spend lots of time with our friends and family. The Castle suited us perfectly – the swimming pool, party turret, bar room, croquet games inside the Castle grounds, rowdy rounders games & archery outside the castle made the place truly unforgettable. We would really like to thank the team up there, especially Franco and Neil, Franco for all his patience and helpful tips and Neil who was always on hand.

    Thanks so much for helping to make our wedding so special.

    Pip and Graham
