Finding heaven at Polhawn Fort
Article Published: Wednesday 23rd March, 2022 - 5:01pm
Picture this: a Napoleonic Fort sitting on a Cornish cliff-top, rolling lawns and wildflower-filled gardens slipping down to the sea and a private beach for loved up wanders at the water’s edge. Nestled in a tucked-away corner of the Rame Peninsula with soul-stirring sea views, Polhawn Fort really is the stuff of dreams.
A personal and highly flexible approach is key to the venue’s appeal. Whether you’re planning a simple, intimate wedding or a seriously stylish affair on a grand-scale, the exclusive-use venue makes the perfect canvas. What’s more, its magic is year-round: a summer wedding might see a garden ceremony in the summerhouse followed by frolics on the sand and sundowners on the roof garden terrace. A winter wedding is equally enchanting, with vows beneath the vaulted ceilings and twinkling lights of the grand Napoleonic hall and candlelit celebrations while a log fire crackles and waves crash at the shores below.
Complete with a drawbridge and spiral staircase, Polhawn Fort is as unique as it is captivating. And, with accommodation for up to 16 in cosy, comfortable rooms with views across the sea, a group of your nearest and dearest can savour this extraordinary spot for a brilliantly memorable stay of two, three or four days.
