Pengenna Manor

Tucked away in a quiet, secluded valley just three miles inland from the North Cornish coast lies Pengenna Manor, an 800-year-old private family home set in over 300 acres of beautiful Cornish countryside and available for exclusive use hire.

Completely private and exclusively yours it has a true flexibility that offers you the chance to create your dream wedding the way you want it. So whether you’re dreaming of a grand country house wedding with carriages, canapés on the lawn and a string quartet, a simple and natural countryside wedding with welly boots, tractors for transport and hay bales, or a bohemian vision of giant tented tipis, acoustic guitars and lanterns strung amongst the trees, this hidden gem is the ideal venue for your special day.

Pengenna Manor is a ‘blank canvas’ venue, but also still very much a family home. The current proprietor Richard Blewett (the sixth generation of his family to live at the Manor) will work with you in the build up to your wedding to help you use the Manor and its grounds however you wish, and then personally host you for the entirety of your stay, ensuring your wedding passes without a hitch.

Tie the knot in our feature summer house with views down over the valley while your guests look on from under an avenue of apple and cherry blossom trees, under the archway of the 450-year-old front door of the Manor with your guests sat out on the front lawn, or inside the Grade II* Manor House itself in the historic surroundings of the Drawing Room. For 2019 choose our atmospheric brand new rustic Cowyard Barn with its walled courtyard looking down over the Manor.

Celebrate your union with a drinks reception in the walled garden on the front lawn of the Manor, in the Drawing Room inside it, on the Ha-ha Terrace with its sweeping valley views, on the terrace in the Marquee Garden, or in the new Cowyard Barn and adjacent courtyard. Or, if you wish, in all five locations!

For your wedding breakfast and evening party, make use of our purpose-designed marquee garden and hire in any kind of marquee you like to suit your style for up to 350 guests, or for up to 70 guests choose the new Cowyard Barn with its ancient stone walls, supporting granite stone posts and festoon lighting strung through the roof timbers.

For your overnight accommodation we have four beautifully restored, character-filled bedrooms available inside the Manor sleeping 8 guests on a bed & breakfast basis, consisting of the glamorous Art Deco style Bridal Suite with its luxurious en-suite shower room, and three further sumptuous bedrooms – two good sized double bedrooms and one smaller twin bedroom that can be converted to a double. Each of these rooms have been individually and tastefully decorated in a grand country house style. On the edge of the Estate (just 5 minutes walk from the Manor) there is an additional house, Watergate, set in 3 acres of its own gardens that sleeps 6 adults and 2 children which is available on a self catering basis.

For the rest of your guests there is a wide range of fantastic accommodation to suit all tastes and budgets in the area near the Manor, including FREE camping in the Manor grounds itself for all of your guests, and two large houses close to the Manor that are perfect to accommodate other members of your family on a self-catering basis.

The Manor is available to hire as your exclusive wedding venue just for your ceremony, just for your reception, or for both your ceremony and reception. Contact us today for a brochure or to make an appointment to come and visit.
