About Clearwell Castle

An impressive Gloucestershire venue nestled within 20-acres of ground, Clearwell Castle is a fairytale castle wedding venue that is brimming with whimsy and romance. Found within the enchanting Forest of Dean, this picture perfect location is ideal if you have been dreaming of a wedding day in the country.

As you make your way through the tranquil forest, you will reach the impressive facade of Clearwell Castle, complete with intricate stonework and a sweeping stone staircase. Manicured lawns, lush greenery and beautiful blooms only add to the magic of this wedding venue in Clearwell.

If you are planning a civil ceremony but you love the visual appeal of a church celebration then the church-like ballroom at Clearwell Castle will offer the aesthetic you are dreaming of, with the flexibility that comes with a civil ceremony. A 75-ft wedding aisle ensures that you can make a grand and impressive entrance, leaving you with a memory you will treasure forever. A newly-licensed outdoor ceremony area also gives happy couples the opportunity to have an outdoor ceremony against the lush background of the Forest of Dean. Those looking for a relaxed and peaceful ceremony will love the tranquility that comes with an outdoor wedding ceremony.

Clearwell Castle also has wedding accommodation on site, with 15 stunning bedrooms that can be reserved for you and your wedding party. Within the grounds there are three pretty cottages that can offer a beautiful stay ahead of the wedding so that the wedding party wakes up relaxed, refreshed and with no need to travel to the venue. Just a short stroll from the castle you will find The Wyndham, with an additional 24 bedrooms, ideal for your guests and complete with its own bar.
