Full Description
The Guardian of Whitsand Bay since 1867, Polhawn Fort is a unique, exclusive use wedding venue on the Cornish coast. The experienced team of wedding professionals at Polhawn Fort are dedicated to helping you create the wedding you have always dreamed about. Your guests will enjoy the stunning, secluded location complete with private access beach. Offering extended stays and luxurious accommodation you have the choice to do as much or as little as you choose. Actually, choice is what we do best. With a handpicked list of trusted suppliers, curated with quality and service in mind, you will be able to bring your ideas to life! Flexible spaces mean you can plan your wedding to be as relaxed and simple or as formal as you can imagine. The Grand Hall is perfect for everything from a sublime indoor ceremony to a riotous, lively party! The summerhouse overlooking the Bay stands ready for enchanted outside ceremonies but can also be transformed into a beach hut bar or chill-out zone! Not to mention the beach for cricket, bonfires and water sports. New for 2018 is the use of the Mediterranean inspired Roof Garden Terrace. Situated on the top of the Fort your guests can enjoy Al Fresco dining with sweeping views of the Bay from the end of the Terrace. You are free to choose how to use the space which lends itself to a casual barbecue or chilled out drinks reception. Combine a fire pit and festoon lighting to encourage your guests to appreciate the sunsets from the roof or your very own fireworks display from the neighbouring field. To add to the enjoyment of the extensive grounds, Polhawn provide a range of garden games. A bit of healthy competition will develop between your family and friends as they challenge each other to Croquet, Giant Jenga and our favourite traditional Cornish game – Smite! Spectators can enjoy the sport from our new folding lawn chairs and side tables. Polhawn Fort has viewing days every Monday and Friday afternoon, including Bank Holidays.

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Gemma
Polhawn Fort is a one-off, unique kind of place. It stands alone, quite literally. So if you’re looking for a coastal wedding venue to make your own, you’ve probably found it. Imagine a home-from-home vibe and you’re halfway there (if ‘home’ happens to be a Napoleonic fort, complete with drawbridge)! We welcome you to come and visit us on any Mondays and Fridays between 1.30pm and 3.30pm. Contact the team to book your viewing https://www.polhawnfort.com/arrange-a-viewing/. See you soon. Sarah
