Full Description
Declaring your love in front of family and friends is big stuff; whether you choose an old fashioned wedding or modern civil partnership is up to you - we can make it natural or funky, eco-chic or country. You might be drawn to a vision of a fairy glade; where you exchange your vows by woodland and stream before musicians on fiddle and flute play you past banks of foxglove and wild rose. Children clutching posies skip alongside as you walk hand in hand to a tented space filled with food and flowers. Later candles in paper lanterns and tiny lights shine softly across the music and dancing - long after little ones are tucked up in their tipis. You could be stirred by the rise of the eco-wedding; thinking green and sustainably from the beginning, you want to arrange ceremony and reception close to one another to reduce miles travelled, low impact accommodation for everyone to stay in, local suppliers of seasonal food and drink, in fact everything as low carbon and earth friendly as it can be.

We couldn't have chosen a better venue or team.
We just wanted to write to tell you how amazing you all are! Thank you SO MUCH for hosting our wedding, you were absolutely brilliant. You made everything seem so effortless, and even calmed us down before the ceremony (not an easy job to take on!). You really went above and beyond for us, and we are so grateful. Our guests were amazed with the venue, the guests that stayed loved the tipis, and i think they converted the non campers into campers! The lake was a hit with everyone too. We are actually quite sad that it's over! But we have decided to come back and stay in a shepherd's hut for our 1st anniversary. Thank you again, we really wish we could do it all over again. We couldn't have chosen a better venue or team.

Our photos are beautiful and so perfect in the beautiful scenery of the venue - the lake, woodland, tipis and the rustic marquee.

The venue is stunning
I can't make the font bigger enough to express my thanks... THANK YOU....!!! Theo and I had our wedding here last month. Wowee, the team are amazing. I couldn't believe how well we were looked after. I've never felt so loved and cared for on one day and the team were seamless, running around after us all. Such a talented, calm and patient bunch. The venue is stunning and it certainly was worth the wait. (delayed due to COVID). Best place EVER to get hitched. Such wonderful memories and we can't wait to return for our hols.

It was perfect from start to finish
Hi Cornish tipis, Just wanted to send an e-mail to give the most sincere and heartfelt thank you for having us for our wedding. When we first started planning our wedding we were left a bit disillusioned by the amount of very fancy venues, focus on 'instagrammable' weddings, and sheer pretentiousness of it all! For us, we wanted a chilled out, outdoors wedding in nature which focused on love (and ideally being able to get in some water at some point!) We are therefore so so glad we found you guys. It was perfect from start to finish, from all our friends and family being able to stay on site and having a big swim on the wedding morning, to the most special and beautiful sun dappled ceremony and then a post ceremony paddleboard, to a ceilidh in the beautiful marquee followed by star-gazing and whisky by the campfire. Thank you for all your help in organising it, and having an amazing 'can do' attitude with our slightly out-there ideas and for being great on the day - we felt so looked after but loved that everyone was just so chilled and friendly. Our guests loved it too - they all had such an amazing weekend and made lovely memories. I think the lake was a real highlight! We will certainly be back for wedding anniversaries and more we expect! Cornish tipis is now a very special place for us.

Travel Notes

Take the M5 to Exeter then the A30 to Okehampton and Launceston. Turn right on to the A395 to Camelford. Just before Camelford turn right at Collan's Cross onto the B3314 to Dealbole. Follow the road out of Delabole for a couple of miles then turn left for St. Teath at the Port Gaverne crossroads (do not take the first road on the left signposted St. Teath just after Delabole). Stay on that road (again do not turn to St. Teath), curving to the right, over an old railway bridge, then take the first right just before Nomansland Cottage, and down the grassy track.

FAQ
(5)

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

unique, magical, natural, romantic, tranquil

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

Our lake is the jewel at the heart of the venue and the backdrop to some stunning photos. Whether you have romantic photos sat on the jetty, rowing around in our bridal boat or stood in the middle of the lake on the pontoon, for a really dramatic shot!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Our Favourte midnight treat would have to be the Camp fire! You can head back to your beautifull private tipi adorned with fairy lights and toast marshmellows or bubbles under a stary sky...

What is your venue's most unique feature?

There are lots of features that make our venue truely unique, our secret valley is 5 minutes from the wild Atlantic coast with a matchless backdrop of woodland and sky, shimmering lake water and magical Cornish earth.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

Once upon a time we started a tipi campsite - the first one in the UK - and then about 10 years later we were asked by a couple if they could get married here! A tipi wedding, woodland wedding, camping wedding, festival wedding - it could hardly be more perfect! The idea of you using our beautiful woods and glorious lake for your day of days was clearly spot on, and now nearly 10 years later, we're established as one of the UK's top outdoor wedding venues. Hurrah! So what we didn't do was jump on a bandwagon; we were in at the off with outdoor weddings, and we're actually from here (farmers - too long to mention) & have grown our family business organically over the last 20 years (yes, sometimes slower than we'd have liked) into something to be proud of. This means when you get married here you are dealing with real people in a real place, and we'll respond to you personally in everything we do. Having been the closest thing you can get to an outside wedding for all this time, we are thrilled to say you can now legally get married outside by the shimmering waters of the lake or in our woodland glade surrounded by ferns, bluebells and trees to the sound of the trickling stream and bird song.
