your wedding @ Boscundle
Love is in the air at Boscundle Manor. As well as a dreamy sense of romance, a wedding in this exceptional place offers exclusivity, flexibility and a beautifully personal event.
With accommodation for up to 30 guests, you can revel in the blissful climes of Boscundle for an extended celebration. Arrive to a relaxed welcome feast, enjoy the festivities in privacy and, the following day, while away cherished moments reminiscing over events, maybe tucking into brunch on the lawn rounded off with a long soak in the hot tub.
Ceremonies may take place in the lounge or the conservatory, which is ideal for small parties of up to 50 guests. There’s also the restaurant, a magical setting for a candlelit winter wedding with its low ceiling, log fire and intimate ambience. You may even wish to go al fresco and take your vows beneath the thatched gazebo on the croquet lawn – a spectacular spot with the lofty woodland framing the oh-so pretty picture.
The dining room is the backdrop for intimate receptions and, for larger parties of up to 100, a marquee can be attached to the house to provide a tailor-made celebration space in close proximity to the cosy lounge and facilities of the hotel.

Welcome from Sharon
I have been involved in wedding planning for more than 15 years now. I love it! I love everything about it! I bought Boscundle Manor because I could imagine it as the perfect wedding venue for intimate, exclusive use weddings and I would love the chance to hear about your ideas for your perfect day. If I can help with my previous experience, then even better, maybe help to put your mind at rest about what has to be sorted straight away and what can be left a little later.
At Boscundle Manor we cater for weddings from 2 (and we can be the witnesses!) right up to 150, small events for just the day, right through to fabulous 3 day exclusive use events over a bank holiday weekend. For up to 45 guests, we offer an intimate dining experience in our lovely dining room and for up to 105 banqueting style in a fabulous marquee from our marquee partners, Absolute Canvas. As we don't have a large function room, we are not the ideal venue if you are thinking of 200 or more guests, but could be ideal for most other weddings especially if you think that you like the idea of exclusive use, it really is the way to go and we even have a few ideas about how you can still get exclusive use without blowing the budget.
With best wishes for the future, Sharon x
If you are able to find a venue like Boscundle Manor that offers exclusive use for your wedding, then my advice is to look closer. What better than to catch up with old friends and your nearest and dearest in a relaxed setting the night before your wedding, whilst sipping a glass of wine and eating great food at an ice breaker dinner.
Boscundle quickly becomes your very own ‘home from home’ and the staff have just one focus (well 3, actually) – you, your family and your guests. There tends to be fewer rules too, as there are no other “guests” to disturb and often the bar can stay open late as you are all residents.
You are probably thinking “this must cost a packet” but there are ways and means of making exclusive use and a tight budget work. Obviously, if funds allow, then the wedding party can pay for all the rooms but this may simply not be possible, so how about paying for your guest’s rooms for the night before and let them pay for their own rooms on the wedding night, thus halving the exclusive use charge or alternatively subsidise the room rate so that you pay a proportion and your guests pay a lower rate. The ultimate cost saver of course, is to have all your guests pay for their own rooms and, believe me, it happens more than you would think!
As Boscundle Manor is quite small, with just 14 rooms, you will be surprised how quickly you will be able to ‘allocate’ all the rooms once you have ticked off 2 lots of parents and grandparents, a sprinkling of brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts and cousins, a few bridesmaids and some close friends and, of course, yourselves. And guests travelling any sort of distance are going to need somewhere to stay anyway!
And picture this, a fun communal breakfast the following morning, full of cheering and clapping friends and family and not being embarrassed in front of strangers as you enter the breakfast room. A great end to a fabulous, exclusive use, wedding!
For small parties of up to 44 guests, receptions can take place in our dining room, however we are able to accommodate up to 90 people in a fabulous marquee, which can be attached directly to our dining room. We erect the marquee on a purpose made terrace just outside the dining room and attach it directly to the front side of the house. The marquees have a solid floor, carpet to suit your colour scheme and are fully lined and lit. Optional exterior lighting is available to illuminate all the grounds in a range of colours as well as a powerful heating system so you can even have a marquee wedding in the winter!
And the result - all the splendour of a marquee style reception with out the two biggest drawbacks; no wet grass to walk across and no portable loos to worry about!
The chefs at Boscundle Manor are able to put together just about any selection of food to compliment your day. Not unique, but quite unusual, is our ability to offer you and your guests a choice of food, typically three starters, main courses and desserts as well as vegetarian and other special dietary requirements.
All year Round
It is undeniable that Boscundle Manor is lovely in the summer time, but it also has a very special feel in the winter months and around Christmas. With its cosy sized rooms, real log fire and comfy furniture Boscundle is suitable for weddings at any time of the year. Even marquee weddings have taken place in December with suitable heating systems installed in the marquee.
Ask about special discounts for mid week weddings and really special discounts for weddings in November or January. At these times of the year, we are (to be brutally honest) quiet and would love to help you get your perfect day on a reasonable budget. You never know, the weather might just be kind as well.
