Had been on our way home from a few days touring when we decided to stop off for one extra night away. How lucky were we to find Rowton Castle available last minute. It became the highlight of our break. If you think the pics look good on the website wait until you see the real

We got married on 27th December 2018 at Rowton Castle and we couldn't have picked a more perfect place. All the staff were wonderful, especially Gareth who was running the show on the day. The venue is gorgeous, especially with the Christmas decorations up. The food was so tasty

Dear KindaBoldlyGoing Thank you so much for your kind words regarding your recent wedding with us here at Rowton Castle. It was an absolute pleasure to read that you enjoyed all elements of the day. I agree with you that the ability to be able to stay in Tower House and The Orchard Suite on site the night before the wedding is fabulous. Relaxing with your immediate bridal party, waiting in anticipation of the day unfolding the following morning is the very best way to prepare. It was also lovely to read that you found the initial viewing and process clear and thorough. It is always our intention to assist couples with making an informed choice as to whether Rowton Castle is the venue for them. We are so happy that yourselves and many other couples choose that we are! It was our absolute pleasure to take care of you all, and hopefully we will welcome you back in the future. With very best wishes Bryan

Dear andybf8752AQ Thank you for your kind words regarding your recent wedding with us here at Rowton Castle in December. It was lovely to read that you enjoyed the day, and our attention to detail being "beyond compare" is high praise indeed. I know the whole team will be delighted to read your review knowing they contributed towards its success, and Gemma & Gareth will be pleased to have warranted a special mention, as will your DJ Chris. You are right, Rowton is particularly beautiful at Christmas. The decorations are amazing, and the finishing touch of a 30 foot Christmas tree at the front of the castle is very impressive; a truly magical time of year to marry. Thank you once again, and we very much look forward to welcoming you back in the future. With very best wishes, Bryan

A jewel in a picturesque town. The castle was well-maintained, clean and beautifully decorated for the Christmas period. Staff was polite, family room for 4 was big and clean, sanitation was modern and in the cold weather, the hot shower was wonderful. The lounge menu was yummy,

How much is a pint at the bar? What beers do they have?
I can't answer re the cost of the beers, but I can say they have a good selection of beers including craft beers. I believe they have two bars, one bar inside one bar outside. The staff are very friendly so I'm sure if you called the Rowton castle they would answer your questions probably better than myself. It's a beautiful place to visit.

Yes you can. Then you can park in the adequate car park. It’s a little incline from the car park so be mindful. Hope this helps.

Our exclusive use wedding in march was fantastic, see reviee, I think the advice to go to an open day is good, what I'd say about exclusive use though is that you effectively pay a specific cost element for that, it's not I don't think tied to guest numbers which are then charged on top per head, so effectively your buying 19 bedrooms, then the wedding elements.
