One of my friends held her wedding here last summer and it was a stunningly beautiful place that had that real wow factor. It helped that it was a glorious sunny day but honestly if is not already booked my own venue I'd have considered this one. The place is not too big so has a real intimate feeling that... More

We were married at Rowton Castle on 2nd August 2013. It was the only venue that I called and viewed, it just felt right. On the day, as most brides perhaps are, I was very nervous but the one thing that worried me about Rowton (the number of weddings they do per year), turned out to be a godsend. They're... More

Dear Enslow-OfficeGirl Thank you for taking the time to review your wedding with us in August 2013. It was lovely to read that we were the only venue you visited because "it just felt right" - I believe that gut instinct is the best guide for anyone. As you commented, we are phenomenally popular as a wedding venue, having the... More

Food was good as was the service. Drinks weren't cheap but this was to be expected in this type of place. We have room 6 which was above the DJ so our sleep was rather disturbed. Everything else was great though. Beautiful venue! Would recommend to friends and family!

Having just returned from Rowton Castle the only complaint i have is, that it isn't in Yorkshire. My daughter was married there yesterday, the staff from Alex down were more than happy to help with ANY issues, and very attentive to detail. The wedding function, lunch, evening entertainment, evening meal were all flawless! If i could mark the Castle more... More
