    My husband and I got married here, May 2024. It was a magical day. I cannot recommend this venue enough! I first visited the venue when I went to their wedding fayre. The staff were excellent from the first enquiry at the fayre right through post the wedding day. The regular wedding fayres are really good to re-see the venue and book other vendors that you had not done. This really helped the wedding planning! My wedding coordinator Laura B was outstanding. She was at the end of every email, and there was a lot! She was quick to respond and I felt that no question was a silly question and nothing was a bother for her. The night before the wedding we stayed at the vale. The rooms were great proximity to each other for the videographer and photographer. This made everything easy. Room service was very helpful and it was a beautiful spread. Unfortunately, my grandfather was unwell in the night and required a&e. The night manager was exceptional and took him to a&e and picked him up, which really helped what could have been a very stressful morning. Thankfully, he made the wedding, thanks to the kind staff at the Vale! The wedding day at the Castle was superb. I couldn't have asked for more. It rained on our wedding day but the venue is so beautiful that it didn't matter that the majority of our pictures were inside. Everything ran smoothly. Staff tried to keep us on schedule... the day really does fly by! The staff were very accommodating. We had a surprise slideshow that we didn't know about. One of our guests was breast feeding and they offered her a room to be more comfortable. The food was excellent. I had a number of guests say it was the best wedding food they had tasted and I would also agree! The staff really did go above and beyond for all guests! On the night of the wedding we stayed at the castle. The rooms were beautiful! The breakfast the next morning was as good as the food the night before! A huge thank you to everyone who were involved in our wedding. We had the best day and would do it all over again in a heartbeat!

    We had our wedding here 2 weeks ago and I cannot recommend them enough! From first enquiry right up to the week before, we had a dedicated point of contact who were very helpful and always ready to answer any questions we had! We were given recommendations on suppliers after a few questions regarding our ideas/style we wanted for the day which was super helpful! Their regular wedding fayres also made the planning process so much smoother, as we could visit the venue on these days and catch up with staff in person as well as suppliers that could showcase their work in the venue itself. We stayed in the Vale resort the night before, and the staff were so accommodating and friendly! They all seemed genuinely excited for me and exuded such passion for their roles. The actual day at the castle was amazing - the event team on the day made sure things ran like clockwork, and their wealth of experience really showed as the guests could not stop complimenting how wonderful the staff were. The food was incredible and we still have guests raving about it 2 weeks later! We stayed at the castle on the night of the wedding and our family loved the rooms! The staff even made special arrangements for my sister and her 6 month old baby so that she could store his milk/food with no issues - this was sorted without even batting an eyelid, definitely above and beyond! A huge thank you to both the day and evening event managers as you executed everything brilliantly! We had the best day and cannot thank you enough for everything 💜

    Absolutely Stunning Venue, Inside and out are beautifully maintained and kept to a high standard, also some pretty good food the photos are of the starter and desert I had, if you're looking for a venue and Hensol Castle is in you budget would highly recommend!

    Absolutely loved this property. Very attentive to detail. Answered questions right away. The food for the wedding we attended was top class. Friendly staffed that listened, wasn't pushy, and made sure things happened. The property as well was in incredible shape. With about 1k or so walking path behind the castle, it was an ideal location.
