About Clearwell Castle

Complete with grand reception rooms, a 75-foot-aisle and accommodation aplenty, the multi-award-winning Clearwell Castle offers a magnificent backdrop for your fairy-tale wedding.

A magnificent castle in a romantic forest setting
Set in 20 acres of grounds complete with a cocktail terrace and croquet lawn, Clearwell Castle is the perfect fairy-tale wedding venue. Step inside the house and be greeted by roaring log fires, grand reception rooms and two well-stocked bars.

At the top of the stone entrance steps, you enter into the main hall of the castle. The roaring log fire at the end of the room ensures a warm welcome for you and your guests. Comfortable sofas make this grand space a pleasant area for guests to relax throughout your day.

The Library, with its substantial armchairs, provides a perfect spot for mature guests to take a quiet five minutes. The solid oak hand-carved dining table can be used to display photographs of the happy couple, or for games to keep younger guests amused. The Drawing Room houses the baby grand piano and affords views over the croquet lawn up to the pavilion beyond.

There are two bars within the castle. The Cocktail Bar at ground level is available throughout your day. In the evening, the lower level comes to life with vaulted cellar bar and LED starlit dance floor. The DJ sits in his mini castle and can be given a personalised playlist according to your musical tastes. Also on this level, you will find the Children’s Room, complete with toys and games; and the Quiet Room, with its walls adorned with historical articles about the Castle.

The Castle sits in over 20 acres of grounds. Our donkeys will welcome you by the driveway upon arrival, and groundsmen ensure our lawns are perfectly striped. The Bandstand makes for perfect photo opportunities, the lake is a hidden gem and the ‘lime walk’ is an enjoyable stroll – perfect for a moment by yourselves.
