We got married at Rowton Castle on 27 July 2015 and we honestly cannot fault any part of the experience, from how easy it was to make all of the arrangements through to the day itself.

My daughter was married at Rowton Castle on August 9th, 2015 and I cannot praise this place and its staff highly enough! From the outset, the care and advice we received was exemplary and the price offered in the wedding package for the exclusive use of the castle and its 19 bedrooms was unbeatable.

I have just returned from Rowton castle after attending an exquisite wedding. The wedding & venue were amazing, all possible details had been attended too and the ceremony, meal & evening was carried out with seamless planning. We stayed the night of the wedding in the castle and this just added to this amazing stay.

This is a delightful venue and my wife and I thought the room, service, food, cleanliness to be excellent. Well done staff of Rowton Castle and thank you for making our stay so memorable. We plan to return. Superb dinner in the restaurant, too. And we loved the 4 poster bed in our room.
