A fresh new look for Polhawn Fort

A fresh new look for Polhawn Fort

Article Published: Monday 4th June, 2018 - 11:16am

Polhawn Fort's breath-taking location overlooking the beautiful Cornish coastline makes it the perfect venue for your outside coastal wedding. And now, new for 2018, is the use of the Mediterranean-inspired Roof Garden Terrace. Situated on the top of the Fort, your guests can enjoy al fresco dining with sweeping views of the bay from the end of the terrace. From a casual barbecue to a chilled-out drinks reception under the sunny skies, choose how to use the space to best suit your wedding. Perhaps you'd like to combine a fire pit and festoon lighting to encourage your guests to appreciate the sunsets from the roof, or your very own fireworks display from the neighbouring field?

To add to the enjoyment of the extensive grounds, Polhawn Fort provides a whole host of garden games. A bit of healthy competition will develop between your family and friends as they challenge each other to croquet, giant Jenga and our favourite traditional Cornish game - Smite! And for those who prefer to watch, spectators can enjoy the sport from our new folding lawn chairs and side tables.
The interior of Polhawn Fort has also had a fresh new look. A gigantic ornate mirror provides the perfect spot for bridal preparations, and the introduction of unique soft furnishings from renowned local craftswoman Helen Round and artwork from muralist Gez Taylor add to the luxurious feel of the inclusive accommodation. Four-poster beds with the finest quality mattresses paired with thick 100% cotton sheets and the fluffiest white towels ensure your guests' comfort.
