The team at Bickleigh Castle made every effort to to meet our (quite particular) needs, and we thoroughly enjoyed everything about our weekend. Our party (of stags!) had a great time, and we thoroughly enjoyed living like lords for the weekend. Thank you to Sarah and everyone behind the scenes; we couldn’t have been happier with the environment, freedom, and help provided by the friendly folk at Bickleigh Castle.
With a venue like this, people like this & a service like this, it couldn’t be anything other than the Perfect Day!
From the start of coming to view the Castle, your kindness and hospitality has been amazing. Sharon did a fab job at helping us organise the most perfect day imaginable, and very prompt with replying to emails and speaking with us about anything we needed; this made the whole process run so much smoother, cut down on the stress, and I think that it really showed on the day just how well everything came together. On the day itself, a lot of guests commented that they thought they were at a Celebrity Wedding!! It was a lovely touch for Sarah to come and see me and give me the last roses out of her garden, and the love and kindness from Sharon and Polly was really touching; it was obvious how much they wanted us to be happy and give us the most perfect day. We cannot say Thank You enough for giving us a Wedding Day that we didn’t even know was possible. We knew our Wedding Day would be special, but we didn’t know it was this possible to be this happy, and now, we will hold on to these memories forever. We just wish we could relive the day again and again and again. We are so proud to have had our Wedding at your venue and would recommend it to anyone for future weddings. It was 1000 x better than we could have ever imagined.
What a wonderful wedding Natasha and Andy had at Bickleigh Castle in July this summer. We shall never forget the enchanting setting, beautiful weather and the perfect service that was provided by you and your staff. Nothing was too much trouble, so that each guest felt relaxed and really enjoyed the whole day.
People have not stopped commenting on how delicious the food was and how amazing the fireworks were, nothing could have prepared us for how magical and emotional the day was for us both. Bickleigh is a very special place with an amazing charm of its own. Everyone of our guests without fail commented on how wonderful a venue it was, like no other wedding venue they had been to before.
They wanted a fairy tale venue & they got one… The accommodation was clean and well presented, the beds were very comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble. The ceremony was exactly what they wanted. The food at the wedding breakfast was lovely.
A perfect wedding- thank you so much for inviting me to share it with you. Your lovely families & friends are so special & you are such an amazing well-matched couple! Have a perfect future as husband & wife
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.
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!
