Venue Setting

After a 12 year restoration project, Boconnoc House now has a heartbeat again. Set amongst sweeping private parkland, the house adores to be filled with laughter, music, love and imagination. When you arrive we hand you the keys and it can be your own haven for as long as you like. We encourage you to treat the house and its neighbouring enclave of guest cottages, a private church and the civil ceremony room as a blank canvas on which to paint the special day you have always envisaged, be it a subtle elegant affair or a whacky one-off wedding. With accommodation for 40 guests and extensive gardens for glamping, Boconnoc is a wedding village you will want to make the most of for a few days before and after your big day. Once the preparations are complete, relax with a glass of champagne or Cornish cider and a barbecue by the lake, soak up the beauty of nature while wandering along one of the tracks through the woods or beside the streams that meander down every valley. The only sounds here are bird song and water flowing, otherwise it is total peace. We guarantee you will not want to leave.

Venue Features
The Scene:
The house is tucked down two miles of private driveway which leads you past the 123ft obelisk built in 1771 at the top of the drive which then sweeps round though open parkland to the house. From the rooms of the house there are breathtaking views over the park and woodland looking across to the deer park and lake in the valley. There has been a dwelling at Boconnoc since Domesday but the main house was built between the 16th and 18th century and bought by Governor Pitt of Madras in India in 1717 with the proceeds of the diamond that he bought back to the UK. The diamond now sits in the hilt of Napolean's sword in the Louvre in Paris. The house passed through five generations of Pitts, until Ann Pitt married Prime Minister Lord Grenville who abolished the slave trade. By marriage it was then passed to the current owners, the Fortescue Family who took on the project of restoring the house has been restored over the last 12 years and is now a magical location
