We were married at Fonmon Castle in Easter 2015. Throughout the planning we were looked after with timely correspondence, reassurance when needed and nothing was ever too much trouble for the friendly and efficient planning team. On the day, everything ran smoothly. The castle was beautiful, the gardens were stunning and small touches had been added like a St George's... More

My parents had their wedding here and it was honestly the ideal dream vision for a wedding. The sunny weather may have helped but the castle itself is stunning. There was an old dog who likes to roam around the lobby which we found to be a sweet touch. There is a large spacious room where the guests were able... More

We attended a Wedding Fayre at Fonmon Castle, near Barry this money and it was a very pretty place to be. All the staff and exhibitors were lovely and made you feel very welcome. We haven't chosen a venue yet, but this one was definitely lovely. Thank you

Came here for a wedding reception and had a wonderful afternoon and evening. The food was great, and as other reviewers have mentioned, you do feel like you're a guest in a home, without any "keep off" signs on the chairs or furniture. Unfortunately it hammered it down all day, so we didn't get to look around the gardens and... More

Visited the castle as attending a wedding, the grounds are beautiful, as well as the room used for the ceremony and lunch (same room) although the people at the back of the room find it very difficult being involved as you can't hear anything when the planes are passing low to land or take off from cardiff airport. The night... More

I had long wanted to tour Fonmon Castle, having lived nearby 40 years ago, the time was right. My tour guide, and mine alone was a local Welsh lady. This amazing person was a wealth of information, on the redoubtable Boothby family. As a schoolboy I had worked the harvest for Sir Brooke's mother Lady Anne, truly an amazing lady.... More
