The Well House, a short drive from Plymouth, is without doubt one of the most exclusive and unique wedding venues in Cornwall and Devon. With breath taking views over the Looe Valley, our Internationally acclaimed Restaurant is also recognised by The AA as one of the top five in Cornwall.

To observe our exclusivity policy, viewings are by appointment only please contact us to arrange (08450 721200).

At a glance, you can expect the following at The Well House:

The best cuisine for weddings available in Cornwall – our restaurant is rated by The AA as one of the top five in the County.

Stunning views from the Hotel out over the picturesque Looe Valley.

Complimentary accommodation for for the Bride and Groom in a romantic Garden Terrace Suite or our Turret Room.

Wedding Decor package to match your theme which includes coloured linens, chair covers, candles, garden furniture and attention to detail which will not be matched, all provided by our in house wedding designer.

Situated just over the Devon/Cornwall border, a few minutes from the A38 and an easy 30 minute drive from Plymouth, we are centrally located in the Gateway to Cornwall - ideally located for guests travelling from any part of the Country. In fact, our location is perfect - slightly inland (we are just three miles from the sea) - but without any coastal drama and high winds.

Ceremonies and Receptions can take place overlooking our stunning grounds and the romantic Looe Valley. We hold a licence to conduct Civil Weddings and Partnership Ceremonies and you can take your vows with a backdrop of complete natural beauty.

The ambience and look of a private country house is purposely retained at The Well House. You will find no reception, no room numbers on the doors, no racks of tourist leaflets in the hall and no plastic credit card signs. What you will find however is luxury and comfort together with a friendly service which is second to none.

We can hold smaller, intimate receptions, for up to 35 guests in our own Restaurant, up to 80 guests in our smaller marquee which is accessed directly from our Restaurant through patio doors. Or for large receptions, up to 200 guests in our larger marquee on one of our terraced lawns.

We are the only hotel in Cornwall, and one of a very few in Devon, offering wedding cuisine prepared by 3 AA Rosette chefs, so you and your guests are guaranteed the very highest standard of cuisine available. Perfect food, Perfect views and perfect service - all you would expect on your Special Day.

We have carefully considered our menus and drinks packages to cater for a range of budgets.


If you have another non-hotel venue you would like for your reception - from a castle to a marquee in a field - don't worry, we are now offering a unique Master Chef Outside Catering Service and can bring our delicious cuisine direct to your chosen venue. Please see below.
