You can have this deeply romantic historic venue exclusively to yourselves, for a whole weekend or midweek, to create your unique wedding dream.
Imagine having you get married at Polhawn, the Fort and gardens will be exclusively yours to share with friends and family for a whole weekend or a midweek break. With breathtaking sea views all around, Polhawn Fort is Cornwall's most spectacular wedding venue.
You can get married amidst the splendour of our unique historic and romantic Napoleonic Hall, or outside in our Summer House overlooking our wide lawns and the sea beyond.
Polhawn Fort is an unusual and romantic wedding venue on the south coast of Cornwall in Whitsand Bay, near Mount Edgcumbe, round the corner from Plymouth, and just along the coast from Looe, Polperro, Fowey, Mevagissey and St Mawes and the Rame Peninsula, overlooking the sea at Whitsand Bay, and the long distance South West Coast Path runs directly behind the grounds of the Fort. From Rame Head you can look across the entrance to Plymouth Sound towards Wembury and Newton Ferrers, past Burgh Island towards stylish Salcombe.
Polhawn Fort brings you a stunningly beautiful coastal location in Cornwall, and an extraordinary original Napoleonic Fort with huge views across the sea and the fabulous idea that you can have this deeply romantic historic venue exclusively to yourselves, for a whole weekend or midweek, to create your unique wedding dream.
So myself and Jordan got married here just last Saturday. The whole weekend was amazing from start to finish! We couldn't fault the fort or the staff that we met or that were on hand to help us. All our friends and family as well as this beautiful venue made our day perfect!!! This is a stunning venue inside and out. I recommend to anyone who wants a real homey feeling wedding venue
I wish I could add more stars. This was my dream before I met my husband, the place is perfect, the view is perfect, the support from Polhawn is perfect. It is a dream come true. I feel truly bless to have had such an amazing wedding there 4 months ago x I want to thank everyone involved in our wedding. Was the most amazing day of our lives x
Such an amazing and unique place to get married. The grounds are stunning and the views are breathtaking. Our wedding day was beyond what I thought it would be, it was just amazing. All the staff I encountered were helpful and lovely and the place was spotless. It really is the best place! It will always have a special part in my heart.
I cannot put into words how perfect this venue was. From our first visit we fell in love, and our views only became more and more positive the more we came to visit. The lead up to the day was perfectly organised, there were plenty of staff around to chat and lend a hand when needed. We had the most perfect day, and we couldn’t have asked for ANYTHING more. Thanks Polhawn, we have nothing but good memories and can’t wait to come back to visit!
We were lucky enough to have our wedding here on 16th September 2017. The venue is absolutely beautiful, no matter what the weather, and we couldn't be happier to recommend it to other couples. There is plenty of room to sleep family and friends in lovely rooms and both the grounds and interior are absolutely stunning. It doesn't need much dressing at all! Having the venue for longer than a day really does mean you get to catch up with your loved ones in a way you never would if you had one big wedding day. 10 million stars x
We would give it 10 if I could. We got married there this year and simply do not have enough words to say how wonderful and amazing the Fort and staff were. From the first time we visited we were welcomed with open arms. No question was too much to answer and nothing was a problem. We couldn’t have chosen anywhere more perfect for our wedding day! We would relive it everyday if we could.
We got married here in May and from the moment we first saw the venue we knew this was the only place we could get married. It is such a beautiful place and was made even more special by being able to have the place to yourselves for 5 days where friends and family can stay with you. Another massive benefit its dog friendly and our two dogs had a great time roaming round the fort and on the beach. The people we spoke to were so helpful and their recommended suppliers are well worth a look with us using several of them who were brilliant (James buss, alternative styles, Ruth Andrew, piglet cottage and Gemma Viant). Even though we just got married a few months ago we are already discussing coming back for a wedding anniversary as it's such a special place. Thank you for making our wedding so memorable .
You're just left to get on with it in the best possible way. We could do anything we wanted so the day was tailor made with no restrictions. Basically a blank canvas, so we put up paper chandlers and bunting and James even dressed up as Batman for something I needed on the day and he was really happy to do it.
wow! If only we could relive our wedding day, everyday!! It was an absolute dream and Polhawn Fort made it happen! We got married on 30th July 2016 at Rame Church and our reception was at Polhawn Fort. We are completely over the moon at how our wedding day turned out and Polhawn Fort provided us with the absolutely stunning canvas to turn our dreams into reality! We were able to put all our personal touches into our wedding and this was all thanks to Polhawn Fort - so thank you so much to Polhawn Fort for everything you did for us! The team at Polhawn Fort are efficient, professional and were there to answer all our questions throughout the planning process and right up until our wedding day!
The location, views and venue itself are simply stunning. Our wedding day was amazing and all our guests had a fabulous time. The management and the staff were all so helpful and pleasant. Wonderful people and fantastic venue.
The fort is a magic space, which can be turned into your vision of romance and love, claim the space and make your special day a special week or weekend and build the memories even stronger for you and all your guests.
We got married here March last year and it was amazing! The venue and setting are perfect. Loved being able to have close family in the same place and other family and friends stayed local but relaxed at the fort with us throughout the week.
We have just got back from the most amazing week of our lives. Loved every single minute of it! It has to be the most beautiful wedding venue.. We didn't want to leave..Thank you so much to everyone who contributed to making it so special.. And to Sarah & Lucy from the Round Kitchen.. Incredible food!! Want to come back again for a reunion!
A very special venue for a very special day. , It was the perfect location for a winter wedding. All the staff, including Ruth and the owners couldn't have been more helpful in advising and assisting us in the preparations. We loved every minute of our day and we are hoping to come back down soon
We got married here on the 3rd January, what an absolutely cracking day we had!! The whole place is stunning, with the added bonus of being able to decorate it to suit you, so you know your special day will be unlike any others! We even had a visit from a pod of dolphins!! Absolutely love this place and highly recommend it to everyone!! x
