Full Description
You have use of a suite of rooms, both period and modern, with comfortable on-site accommodation for up to 50 people, a licensed bar and fairy lit courtyard. When you choose Tawstock Court you are booking your own country estate for your special day. The Panelled Hall (Max. 90 people) provides the perfect indoor space to say your vows. If you prefer an outdoor ceremony, the 16th century Elizabethan Gatehouse is a great choice for a fine weather day. If you wish to have a church wedding, St. Peter’s Church is situated only a 2 minute walk away. You and your guests can mingle outside on the balustrade or indoors in the Morning Room whilst enjoying welcome drinks. The Study, Lantern Staircase, Courtyard and outdoor spaces along with the ancient woodlands offer numerous photo opportunities. The licenced bar is a modern yet vintage style space complete with a carefully selected gin list, lager, ales, cider, spirits and soft drinks. The Old Refectory (max. 108 people), is an elegant function room to host your wedding breakfast. It has a stunning Parquet floor and reclaimed wood feature wall and, in the evening, sets the stage for a band or disco with mood lighting. We are happy for you to choose your own professional external caterers to suit your requirements.
