The Setting

Clearwell Castle is set within the stunning Forest of Dean and provides the perfect fairy tale setting for your wedding day. Located in Gloucestershire it is just 20 minutes from the Severn Crossing and 45 minutes from Bristol, Cheltenham and Gloucester making it easily accessible from all directions.

Winner of the British Wedding Awards ‘Best Wedding Venue’ in 2016 and 2017, this award winning venue absolutely has to be seen.

The Vibe

The magnificent Ballroom is licensed for civil ceremonies and boasts a 75ft aisle allowing the Bride to really make quite an entrance!

The Ballroom offers a unique and serene setting that is usually only found in churches created by the ornate leaded glass windows and Dias at one end. For sunnier days the Terrace provides a stunning setting for an outdoor ceremony.

The Ballroom can also seat up to 150 people for the wedding breakfast and there are several other grand and elegant reception rooms for your guests to enjoy. As the entire house and grounds are exclusively yours you can also invite up to 250 guests for the evening wedding reception and party.

There are 15 beautiful bedrooms within the Castle and grounds which are reserved exclusively for you on your wedding night ensuring the perfect end to your perfect day at Clearwell Castle. There are also beautiful properties within the grounds for the Bridal party and Groomsmen to stay in the night before the big day.

With the new addition of the Clear Well in the village, just a short stroll from the Castle itself, there are a further 20 bedrooms available for the night before and/or the night of your wedding. Complete with private bar, lounge, dining and breakfast room this is the perfect place to spend your wedding eve with close family and friends.

Clearwell Castle is a historic listed building and, as such, they are extremely restricted in how they can amend the property to accommodate wheelchairs. However, they do provide ramps to facilitate access to the key ground floor rooms of the Castle. There is a disabled toilet on the lower ground floor and they also have a disabled-friendly room across the courtyard in the Coachmans accommodation.

Clearwell Castle has lots of different options to suit you and if you fancy extending your wedding to a weekend-long affair then move in to the castle for a two day celebration!
