Everything about that weekend was much more than we had anticipated, the service & organisation was excellent throughout. The food and presentation during the whole weekend far surpassed our expectations, the ambience. The chapel on Sunday morning was the crowning glory with over 40 attending which surprised us all. It was truly wonderful and magical. We would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Bickleigh Castle!
Thank you so much for an absolutely incredible weekend, we couldn’t have asked for more. We were expecting a magical weekend, but it surpassed all our expectations.

I would just like to say a massive thank you to Sarah and the team at Bickleigh Castle for hosting our Winter client event this year. We started off with having drinks in the Great Hall which was spacious yet cosy with the huge fire going. We then went on to the banqueting room for our buffet style lunch which was extremely tasty with plenty to go around all of our 70 guests (some going up for seconds!). John did a fantastic speech about the history of the castle which was both informative and interesting. John then led on to tours of the castle which all the clients thoroughly enjoyed. All of the staff (naming Marie and Steve especially) were extremely helpful, nothing was too much trouble and it really made my job a lot easier knowing I had such a great team to call upon at any time. Thank you, Sarah, we all thoroughly enjoyed the event and will be sure to be back.
We just wanted to send you a note to thank you again for everything throughout the planning on our wedding day. It was truly was the best day of our lives and we are still getting comments from family and friends about how amazing it was. We have gorgeous photographs and a fantastic film, which we regularly watch, wishing we could do it all over again!
“Mathew was here when he was 6 weeks old now he came back here and got married.”
To Sarah and the Team….We had the most amazing wedding. The flow around the Castle and Grounds was perfect. The Great Hall looked stunning. The Chapel was awe inspiring and the Humanist ceremony magical. Champagne and canapés on the lawn followed by live music from the Swing Kings in the courtyard got the party started. The wedding breakfast room looked fabulous and everything went smoothly. The welcome drink in the Great Hall for evening guests was a brilliant idea. The evening events were in the |Orangery with 10 piece band rocking. Casino entertainment upstairs & Dan Frazier magician meant there was something for everyone. The fireworks were the Grand Finale and all the guests were spellbound!!!!! It couldn’t have been more PERFECT and the wedding of the year. Romantic, historic and memorable. Simply just PERFECT.
The most stunning venue, so personal, charming and beautiful. I have never been anywhere like Bickleigh Castle, completely unique. Thank you! x
The castle is medieval, but the rooms and bathrooms are quite modern and comfortable. The owners and staff are warm, friendly, helpful and efficient, and went out of their way to ensure that the wedding reception, breakfasts, dinners, fireworks, etc. were all over the top. The owner and wedding coordinator exceeded expectations a number of times to ensure all went well – even to the sewing up of a broken zipper on a bridesmaid’s dress as she headed for the church! We will definitely spend more time at Bickleigh Castle.
