Lumley Castle was without doubt the right venue for our wedding and we are really pleased we chose it. Everything ran smoothly on the day, it’s a venue with a lot of experience of weddings and they know what they are doing. David was our Co-ordinator on the day and he was great, helpful, nothing was too much trouble and it felt like he really cared about everything running smoothly. We booked the Scarbrough room for our ceremony and the Baron Suite for the reception. It was lovely to have the two options for the two elements of our day. The Baron Suite is really quirky - if you book it and go for table flowers I recommend utilising the candelabras, we did and they looked fab with trailing flowers arranged by our florist. Emma and Holly were excellent in terms of the planning, very helpful, knew their stuff and were very responsive. One of the things I found stressful with wedding planning was when suppliers didn’t get back very promptly but that was never an issue with Lumley. Always consistent in terms of communication. Price wise, we went with the sapphire package and it felt reasonable for what we got, our guests loved the food. There wasn’t much negotiation on price for things, some prices/pricing strategies were set in stone. So if you are looking for a lot of negotiation price wise then this may not be the venue for you. However I don’t know that other venues are big on negotiation either. If you want to get married somewhere that’s extremely picturesque for photos, quirky for guests and with staff who genuinely are lovely then I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Lumley Castle. We had a brilliant day and our chosen venue was definitely part of this.EVENT REVIEW

Went here for afternoon tea, a birthday treat. It was lovely and staff were really nice as well. Very tentative regarding asking if we needed more drinks etc. Lovely setting as well. It was a place is never been too, but would definitely go back.GOOGLE REVIEW

This was our second visit here after a hiccup on our first stay. Couldn’t fault a thing. Stayed in courtyard in a sumptuous beautiful room. The staff went above and beyond to check everything was okay. Service at dinner was exceptional and all drinks & food delicious. We will definitely be back. Loved it. Very polite & efficient staff.GOOGLE REVIEW
