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!

Myself and my fiancée got married at Rowton Castle the 4th December 2014 and I must say what a wonderful day we had. We dropped off all the necessities the evening before our big day, safe in the knowledge the lady who was running our day "Debbie" knew where everything was and exactly how we wanted things.

We got married here on 2nd Nov. The venue is stunning. Even though they do hundreds of wedding every year, we certainly didn't feel that it was 'just another wedding' for the staff. The staff were all very attentive and friendly. The day ran like clockwork. The food was fantastic. Their attention to detail is amazing, and the rooms are... More
