I came here just before Christmas for a friends wedding and what a venue she chose! The staff were lovely and the venue was beautifully decorated for Christmas. I stayed in a twin room with another friend, I think it was 16, on the top floor. There is no lift but this was no problem for me, it's an older... More

My son chose the Rowton Castle for his wedding on Jan 2nd. Everything went exceedingly well. Clearly a castle is high on the list for a good wedding venue and The Rowton Castle did not disappoint.

We got married at Rowton Castle just before Christmas 2014. Incredible. Much of this was down to Rowton Castle, the management and it's staff. Highly professional personnel, superb attention to detail and delicious food all served within a beautifully decorated castle set in charming grounds. This was how all our guests described our day. If any bride and groom to... More

Great venue. We had a lovely time here last weekend for a wedding! Great food, great location! Would recommend to a friend! Didn't get to try breakfast. Our fault! They even let us have photos with their dogs :-) Thanks

We had a great day! Wedding was lovely, bar was reasonable! Rooms lovely and clean! Great style and four poster beds! One/two grumpy receptionist who didn't go the extra mile. But all the other staff were great and waited on our tables. Great food! Didn't make it to breakfast!
