When your guests can book rooms - for
'Night of' and 'Night Before' your wedding

Guests can book on the night of your wedding as soon as you book your wedding date. They can book rooms the 'night before' if your guests wish to avoid traveling on the day of your wedding, provided your wedding falls on a Monday through to Friday.  

However if your wedding is on a Saturday, or a Sunday, then accommodation can only be booked for the night before 6 months ahead. This is in case another wedding books the Friday or Saturday before your date, as they will need rooms for their own guests.

So if your wedding is on a Saturday or Sunday and you want all your guests to be able to stay over on the night before, see our Exclusive Weekend Weddings.

If your Wedding is on a Sunday or Saturday, you can also reserve the Nurses Block for guests the night before. Then 6 months prior to your wedding day, upgrade to the en-suites if available.

...accommodation available in the nurses block for me and my bridal party to stay at

I’ve been waiting to have our wedding photos before leaving a review, so we could show off how amazing it all looks. My husband and I got married here last month (13th September) after booking a last minute package. We cannot thank everyone enough for making our day magical, especially Emily. Nothing was too much of an ask, and any problems or queries we had were dealt with professionally and efficiently. There was a wedding at the castle the day before our wedding but thankfully there was accommodation available in the nurses block for me and my bridal party to stay at. This also meant we were able to decorate the conservatory and theatre the night before, even if we were still in there at midnight! But this took a lot of stress away from the morning of the wedding!!

Emily made sure that we were able to move up to the bridal suite on the morning of the wedding too so that we could have some photos getting ready in a nicer setting. The ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening were all amazing. The day went by so quickly.... The staff were so kind and thoughtful and made sure that nothing impacted on our day. The weather was amazing, the castle was perfect, the food was INCREDIBLE. It really was the fairytale day I’d always imagined. Thank you all so so much and we’ll hopefully be back soon for food or a night away! X

Best use of the 25 En-Suites

Each en-suite should have two occupants at £75 PPPN (per person per night) B&B. Additional guests in triples and family rooms - £50 / person.

Achieving 80 in en-suites is unlikely as you will not use every single available bed. For best use of the rooms s
ee how to book 50 guests into en-suites.

To encourage all guests to stay, see our Letter to Guests encouraging B&B in castle.
Changing room for guests
before Ceremony

Booking in time is 3 pm. Guests book into their rooms after the Wedding Ceremony. There is two hours allowed for Photographs after Ceremony, before the Wedding Breakfast.

All guests not staying the night can change in the Sports Room.

A midday book-in time can be arranged for up to three rooms, for an 'early book-in fee' of £25 per room.

Wedding Couples may book a large room the night before, such as the Gatehouse, for guests to change in on arrival. The gatehouse is often booked night before as a changing room for Bridesmaids.

The separate Nurses Block can also be booked the night before the wedding, for additional changing rooms.

Single Occupancy

All en-suites charged at £150/ room regardless of whether double or single occupancy.

Single occupants may book a £70 Nurses Block room rather than an en-suite. Or two singles could share a family room: AB15 & TFFF each have separate bedrooms.

Weekend Weddings need 50 occupants at £75/guest in en-suites. Avoid using doubles as singles as you will run out of en-suites to meet quota of 50 X £75. A top-up would then be due - read more.
Single occupancy of en-suite doubles reduces capacity and prevents you reaching 50 guests comfortably spread over 25 en-suites.

To avoid a top-up charge we charge singles the double en-suite room rate (£150/ room). Couples can subsidise singles if they arrange this with their Wedding Planner. AB32 and AB33 are the smallest double en-suites so can be used for singles.
