Your Wedding Reception in a Castle - it's all yours for the Day

"We only allow one wedding a day in the castle, so
our Castle is yours for your wedding day"

This sets our castle apart from wedding venues in South Wales who have more than one wedding on the same day.

As of 1st December 2021 we are going 'cashless' - read more here.

Permitted Wedding Guest numbers in Conservatory are 92 while current restrictions remain. A negative test or double jab is required for guests at weddings.
To avoid us having to advise you if there has been a case of Coronavirus, during your visit, all guests should be double vaccinated & had a recent negative test before arrival. See updated Coronavirus rules for weddings here.

Your DJ can set up in our large function room while you dine in the Conservatory. There's no waiting around while our separate function room is 'made ready' for the evening.

You can either have your evening party in the Conservatory or in the larger Function Room.

Larger weddings will tend to use the main function room as there is more space and the main bar is next to the function room. Midweek, Last Minute and smaller weddings mainly use the Conservatory for Day and Evening.

After your wedding banquet, you simply glide through to the evening party room with your DJ fully set up, lights dimmed and music playing.

Marrying on a Saturday?


As larger weddings require more certainty in their planning, for much above 80 guests, our advice is to book into 2023. November/ December 2022 also have some weekend dates left.

As the situation with the National and Local News is constantly changing, you can see our up to date contractual and procedural analysis by our Business Systems and Procedures Manager Michael Ludwig - on our main Castle Website here but also see our Coronavirus page below.


Update 16/11/2021: So many Couples postponed to late 2021/ 2022 that 2023 is booking up. With 160 weddings in next 14 months, for a good date in 2023, get your wedding date reserved this month. Reserve your date now, and we'll 'hold' it until you can view in person.
