We got married at Rowton on 2nd September 2016. We were lucky with the weather and had an outside ceremony. Arrived on a helicopter and met immediately by Lewis who was taking care of our day. Lewis was incredible! Always there but always in the background. The venue is amazing. Had such a good time and didn't want the day... More

Came for a two night break, it was perfect. Staff were so attentive and the atmosphere was welcoming and relaxing, just what we needed! We ate in the restaurant on both nights, the food was incredible, the food was of a very high standard and priced very reasonably. I enjoy Prosecco and this was also well priced. The hotel is...

Had the most amazing time at Rowton Castle for our friend's wedding! Nothing was too much trouble. The grounds are amazing and staff were too. Thank you Rowton for the most memorable day! I'm sure the bride and groom will be saying the same too.
