What if I cannot get 50 Guests to Book B&B?

This is a fantastic offer - especially if most of your guests are outside our area. Can you invite 50 guests who will stay overnight and party into the night?  

If you cannot manage 50 staying, this offer is not for you - go instead to our Last Minute Wedding Package where you only need 20 guests to stay overnight.

You get a more complete wedding package, & still get the venue for free, but with just 20 guests staying.

Make it a Two Day Wedding
30% off B&B the night before

This offer is ideal for Couples who have most of their guests living quite far from the Castle.

We are a 'destination wedding venue' in the Brecon Beacons National Park. This means many of your guests will also want to stay the night before to avoid a long journey on the wedding day. We offer 30% off B&B on the night before a wedding. If your guests stay two nights, the rate drops to £105 B&B for two in an en suite, the night before your wedding.

So you can extend your wedding into a two day early weekend event, Thursday & Friday, by inviting your nearest and dearest to join you the night before your wedding. Have a pre-wedding get-together and catch up.

Decorate the Reception room the night before!

Why not set up your wedding decor and tables the day before?  Decorate your reception room a day early (subject to availability) then relax & unwind the evening before the Big Day itself.
