Your bridal party accommodation
As a bridal party you’ll make our Manor House your home for the weekend. With its distinctive regal façade and large light rooms with high ceilings, the house if packed full of traditional features including a priest hole in the bridal suite that dates back to the dissolution of the monasteries during the reign of Henry VIII!

Our venue is nestled just inside Cornwall, close to the border with Devon.
