I just wanted to thank you and your staff for making my son’s wedding on 11th August such a great day.

Everything was just so brilliantly organised – everyone was obviously very well trained, and so very helpful and friendly.

The food was excellent. The ground beautifully looked after – I was particularly impressed by how quickly Cooling Castle Barn was cleared up ready for your next function.

Many of the guests commented on how well eveything was handled by you, and praised the food and organisation.

I have already passed on details to friends looking for a wedding venue.
Again, many thanks to you and your staff.

Yours faithfully,
Julia Tucker
