Craig y Nos Castle Wedding Venue
My husband and I got married at Craig y Nos three weeks ago and I cannot recommend highly enough this stunning and quirky venue, as well as the truly fantastic wedding team that looked after us for the entire day and all throughout the planning process! No task was too big or small, and Emily and Nicola were at my beckon call to answer my many silly questions and offered endless advice and support. They both did so much to help our special day come together! The day itself was more than we could ever have wished for - the venue is so beautiful and steeped in history, and was the perfect backdrop for a wonderfully happy day. We received no end of comments from happy guests about how lovely the castle was, how delicious the food was, and how the staff were so friendly and accommodating. We can’t wait to come back to stay for our anniversary! Thank you again for giving us a truly magical wedding day 💛

Beautiful location the castle itself and the grounds are stunning. The staff are all really friendly and even though I found out we're were the only ones staying there they put on a full spread for breakfast. The room was really comfortable and the shower was amazing. Thank you all so much for a lovely stay and I am sorry our dog barked so much😁 hopefully see you all again soon

I was invited to my Nephews wedding here he booked his whole day here . It was a beautiful day, sun shining lots of places to film and take photographs. We also had the lake with fish jumping in the background. Lots of Dragonflies. Quite a few rooms . The room we had for the blessing there were two thrones at frontwhere they sat before blessing. Then everywhere for photos. The food was great, the staff friendly and efficient. Then we had the evening buffet which was lovely. We drove back to Cardiff because we have a dog and 2 cats at home. Then the family and friends booked in advance to stay as they came from afar. Really enjoyed ourselves.
They also host fairs like antique and craft fairs in the grounds on a sunny day.

Well, where to start. It has been a couple of weeks since our wedding now, and I've used that time to try and think of a review which is completely fair and honest. However, I cannot find a single bad word to say.
From the moment I called the venue shortly after getting engaged, I dealt with Adrianne. We met her and she gave us a full tour of the castle, and we knew instantly this was the venue for us. It offered us our countryside wedding, at Christmas, in beautiful surroundings, and we could bring our beloved dogs! What could be more perfect!
Over the coming 6 months, the weddings team continually made us feel like the most important people in the world. Nothing was too much trouble. Adrianne is one of the most hard working, dedicated and likeable people we've ever met, and we have felt so wholly honoured to have her with us on this journey. I'm not sure I would have made it without her!!!! She did everything and more, and put a very nervous bride as complete ease. The woman deserves a medal!!
Coming on to the wedding day, and I think my guests feedback says more than mine ever could. Some told us it was the best wedding they'd ever attended (including their own, awkward......) others said the venue was beyond magical and nothing they could have ever imagined. We ate (and ate) until nobody wanted to move! The chef did an incredible job of one of the most perfect Christmas dinners we've ever had. If I could have your Christmas pudding and brandy sauce recipe I'd be extremely grateful!
The venue is beyond belief. The unrenovated parts are truly a wonderful sight which I strongly implore everyone to visit on one of their tours. The staff are absolutely incredible. My only issue is we partied the night away and so the bridal suite was wasted (it's so beautiful I just want to sit and look at it forever) - as such we will have to come back and stay again!!!
Thank you so much Craig Y Nos for the most perfect wedding day, you will forever hold the most special place in my heart and I cannot wait to come back very soon!! Xx

We stayed for Christmas, 24 to 27 December, and I didn't want to check out this morning, I want to move in and stay longer! We'll remember this place and it's staff for a while and we'll definitely be going back. The castle and country park are beautiful, lots of history and lovely walks. The food was delicious! Our room was clean and very comfortable, we'll probably try a suite or family room next time. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, they couldn't do enough for us. The venue is also very dog friendly which was very important to us and the staff made sure that the dogs had sausages for breakfast! Highly recommended. Thanks to all staff who made our Christmas very special.

Me and my husband got married here 01.02.2020! What an amazing venue and the day ran soooo smoothly everyone commented on how superb the venue and staff were and also how amazing the food was! Nothings too much trouble for them and they are laid back enough that you can enjoy your day but professional enough that it feels special! Thank you so much, especially to Nicola who was our wedding planner. What a lovely woman so helpful with a superb attention to detail! Thank you! Craig y nos will always be special to us and we can’t wait to spend the night for our first anniversary!

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone at Craig Y Nos for being host to my mam’s wedding this weekend. The venue was absolutely beautiful, amazing food and staff you couldn’t ask any more of.
Such a wonderful day was had by everyone but there aren’t enough words to describe how beautiful everything was.
The rooms were so clean and comfortable, I didn’t hear a bad word about them from other guests. Our wedding planner Nicola was amazing from start to finish, and I’ll miss our chats getting everything organised. Thank you all x

Craig y Nos was the perfect venue for our wedding. It's hard not to fall in love with the beautiful castle and its green surroundings. And Patti's theater is an amazing bonus for the ultimate glam wedding. From the start our wedding planner, Adrianne, ensured the whole process of booking and planning our wedding at the castle was fun and stress free. Nothing was too much hassle, and she made sure everything was as we wanted. Even on the day of the wedding, she made sure everything ran smoothly.
Having everything under one roof was perfect for us. And because of the natural beauty of the castle, and the candelabras etc that the venue provides, everything is set up for you. The food on the day was delicious, and it was great to give our guests the option of staying overnight - which was perfect for those that needed to stumble to bed. This also meant we could enjoy a hungover breakfast with our guests the next day!
I would highly recommend Craig Y Nos castle as a wedding venue. And would like to give a massive thank you to Adrianne Sedgmore for helping to make sure our wedding day was stress free and perfect.
Glorious Wedding Venue
My daughter recently got married at Craig-y-Nos Castle. The venue was perfect, it had all the facilities we needed, the staff could not do enough, the food was very good and it was tremendous value for money. The theatre held just the right amount of uniqueness and splendour as suited my girl.We had the reception in the conservatory and the views, even on a cold, wet January day were splendid. Many of the guests stayed at the castle and everyone I spoke to found their rooms were perfectly clean and comfortable. We enjoyed looking around each others accommodation as each room we visited catered for all our different needs. The staff bent over backwards to help, they could not do more and were ever smiling. I have no hesitation recommending the castle as a wedding venue and we intend to return to see more of the area soon. Many thanks
Loved the history of this lovely castle. Stayed in the Courtyard rooms with the dogs and children. Amazing access to the estate for us and dogs without having to enter the castle reception area itself. Beautiful ambience and comfortable spacious rooms, friendly knowledgeable and courteous staff who couldn't do enough to help with requests for information, and we were very well attended to as a family. Can't say enough nice things about this place and the breakfast is delicious, cooked to perfection presented in a lovely setting. Will return for sure, as didn't have a chance to visit the nearby caves., however thoroughly recommend the beautiful estate garden walks in the woodland and by the river.
Our wedding day at Craig Y Nos Castle was the most perfect day that we will never forget. It was made extra special by the way the staff welcomed us and looked after us from day one. Our wedding planner Nicola was especially welcoming and she was always willing to help us out whenever we needed her advice and the whole day ran so smoothly and wonderfully thanks to her and the team at the castle who each played their part in creating our perfect day. The theatre is just a magical and beautiful place to have your wedding and sitting in the conservatory surrounded by the gorgeous grounds of the castle was spectacular. There are so many amazing photo opportunities and the bridal suite is filled with the perfect mixture of class and character. If you want to feel like a King and Queen on your wedding day and have exclusive use of this beautiful venue then look no further than Craig Y Nos Castle. We can't thank you all enough.
