Clearwell Castle

Fairytale weddings become a reality at award-winning Clearwell Castle, an absolute gem of a venue with capacity for up to 250 guests for drinks and nibbles or 150 guests dining. Tucked away in the quietness of the Forest of Dean yet less than an hour from Bristol, Cheltenham, and Gloucester. Immaculate 20 acre grounds, a beautiful Ballroom, grand reception rooms and plenty of sumptuous accommodation provide all you need for your dream day.

Clearwell Castle has a rich history spanning five centuries, so is full of beautiful original features; a sweeping tree lined drive takes you to an impressive portcullis, beyond is the turreted castle. Take your vows in the Ballroom with its marble pillars, sparkling chandeliers and elegant lancet windows; a 75 foot long aisle leads to the dais where the ceremony takes place for all to see.

Then mingle happily with your guests in the handsome reception rooms; exclusive hire means you have them all to yourselves – The Main Hall, The Library, The Drawing Room, The Children’s Room, The Quiet Room, and two bars. Have cocktails on the terrace when the sun is shining, play croquet on the lawns, or in the colder months, be warmed by roaring log fires.

Finally dance the night away in the fairy lit vaulted cellar bar before turning in for the night – there are 15 castle bedrooms, including the Gresham Honeymoon Suite, three estate cottages, and 24 more guest rooms just a short stroll away.

Photo opportunities are enormous in such a wonderful setting; pause on the castle steps, in the bandstand, by the hidden lake, in the sylvan setting of the forest, or in the lush meadows as the sun sets. Your Personal Wedding Manager will take care of every detail for you, and talented in-house chefs will create a wedding breakfast to delight. Book Clearwell Castle today and step into your very own fairytale.
