This fairytale castle is an idyllic choice for the big day. Nestled in the romantic Forest of Dean, it was built in 1727 and is an outstanding example of Gothic Revival architecture. Situated just 45 minutes from Cheltenham, Bristol and Gloucester, the imposing three-storey stone towers at the entrance sit dramatically against the magical woodland background.
Brides to be will love the ballroom's 75ft aisle, where you will say your vows beneath the large ornate windows that let the light sweep the room. Newlyweds can spend the first night of their honeymoon in the beautiful Bridal Suite, complete with four poster bed and a spa bath - in fact, all fifteen of the bedrooms are reserved for exclusive use of guests so absolutely privacy for the day is guaranteed. Marrying a music buff? Rock fans will love the venue's varied history - it was previously used as a recording space for rock legends Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath in the 1970's.
