History

Although it is difficult to be entirely certain of the year of Fonmon Castle's construction, there is evidence to suggest that a stone structure was first built on the site around 1180 by Adam de Port, who came from a family of early Norman lords.

The castle's ownership changed hands a few times and was continuously altered before being bought by Colonel Philip Jones in the 18th century.

  • Lisa Sheree Cartwright - 5 September 2017

    We had our wedding here 28/8/2017 we are finishing up our minimoon and just about coming down from cloud nine. The venue is the epitome of beauty, the grounds are incredible it's unique, grand but also very intimate and is a great little hidden gem. The staff were second to none on the day and in the run up towards the wedding, nothing was to much trouble and I was actually very surprised by how much was done by the staff (hannah and Casey thankyou!!) before and on the day I expected to have had to have done a lot more of the set up ourselves!

    This venue was our perfect fairytale and I couldn't compliment it enough, perfect for any wannabe princess for the day, couldn't be happier to have started our next chapter here. Utterly incredible would recommend to anyone

  • Rebecca Archer - 25 February

    Well - what can we say...Hannah and the team were exceptional. They bent over backwards to make sure that we had nothing short of what we saw as the perfect wedding. Nothing ever seemed too much effort for Hannah and it was because of her and the team that we were able to relax and actually enjoy our wedding day. Fonmon Castle as a venue is not only interesting, but also stunning. We had so many compliments on the day and after about the venue itself and how enjoyable the whole day was - from beginning to end. Thank you so much!

  • Hannah - March 2017

    We had our wedding here in March. The venue is hands down the best venue we have ever been too and the day was perfect. Hannah and Casey were helpful, kind and just down right amazing from day one. They were prompt with contact and never kept us waiting long for answers. The bar prices are the best we've ever experienced at a wedding and the bar staff were just as much fun! We can't thank you all enough at Fonmon for the experience you gave us. Thank you.

  • Charlotte - August 2017

    We had our wedding here in August and it could not have been more wonderful. A huge part of this was down to the beautiful venue itself and the amazing hard work of Hannah and her team. Everything ran like clockwork and any little last minute changes Hannah was on it immediately. The planning was a breeze and anything we wanted was accommodated for. Our guests could not compliment the hospitality enough and how stunning the venue is kept - thank you so much Fonmon Castle for us our day was just perfect x
