Thank you for booking your Viewing
at Craig y Nos Castle
Thank you for booking your viewing at Craig y Nos Castle.
Our reception staff will confirm your viewing shortly by email. If you do not receive a confirmation email in the next day or so, please give us a call on 01639 731167 between 09.00 - 17.00 hrs, but also check your junk mail in case it ended up in there. You will also receive an automatic response from me confirming receipt of your viewing booking.
When booking a viewing time, if a wedding is taking place it may not be possible to access the Conservatory once it is in use – this applies to most Friday afternoons and all Saturday afternoons. If you have an early viewing, we allow access prior to the wedding’s occupancy of the room. Also at weekends the en-suite bedrooms will be mostly occupied by guests - bedrooms may be viewed on line but we can only show you some sample bedrooms that happen to be empty when you arrive.
Who you will be meeting on our team
Your appointment will be with one of our Wedding Planners or Wedding Assistants. The team is headed by Donna Davies.
For directions on how to get here, see Directions to Craig y Nos Castle.
