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

I recently got married at Fonmon Castle and I can’t rave about the staff enough! From the first visit to the Castle to my Wedding day the staff there were fantastic. The venue is beautiful and the grounds are breath taking! Such a lovely place to have a wedding. Everything was set up just how I wanted it and they... More

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

Our U3A local history group had a very interesting tour of the house which has been in the hands of the same family for almost 500 years. We had an excellent and very knowlegeable guide. We had pre booked afternoon tea which is something available to visiting groups and well worth having. The gardens are beautiful with a great deal... More

Attended a wedding here as best man - great venue! A beautiful, picturesque setting, and the staff were all amazing. Made the whole thing relatively stress-free (they couldn't help with the speech!).

Paid £6 each to be shown a few rooms (they keep most of the rooms to live in), tour was uninteresting, was explained who portraits were, nothing else much was discussed, overall very disappointing. They Should stick to events.
