We got married at rowton castle on the 18th of August & it was perfect! In April (whilst 9 months pregnant!) we saw an advert for the late availability package & opted to go for that.

The Castle, the rooms and gardens are amazing and immaculate, the staff are friendly and professional and you don't even know they are there unless you want something and then they... More
