Full Description
You have use of a suite of rooms, both period and modern, with comfortable on-site accommodation for up to 50 people, a licensed bar and fairy lit courtyard. When you choose Tawstock Court you are booking your own country estate for your special day. The Panelled Hall (Max. 90 people) provides the perfect indoor space to say your vows. If you prefer an outdoor ceremony, the 16th century Elizabethan Gatehouse is a great choice for a fine weather day. If you wish to have a church wedding, St. Peter’s Church is situated only a 2 minute walk away. You and your guests can mingle outside on the balustrade or indoors in the Morning Room whilst enjoying welcome drinks. The Study, Lantern Staircase, Courtyard and outdoor spaces along with the ancient woodlands offer numerous photo opportunities. The licenced bar is a modern yet vintage style space complete with a carefully selected gin list, lager, ales, cider, spirits and soft drinks. The Old Refectory (max. 108 people), is an elegant function room to host your wedding breakfast. It has a stunning Parquet floor and reclaimed wood feature wall and, in the evening, sets the stage for a band or disco with mood lighting. We are happy for you to choose your own professional external caterers to suit your requirements.

The most perfect day.
We had our wedding at Tawstock court recently. We had the most amazing weekend. The venue is absolutely stunning! We were lucky enough to get married outside, with the weather on our side, it was a beautiful day! There are plenty of rooms to make use of, which are all beautiful. The views outside are stunning which is great for pictures. We had quite a few guests stay at the accommodation of the venue, and we had lots of comments on how lovely the rooms were. The honeymoon suite is such a lovely room, with plenty of space for bridal prep with good lighting. Laura is such a lovely lady and nothing was too much trouble for her. She went above and beyond to ensure we had the best day. We wish we could do it all over again! Thank you again Laura and your team for being so amazing & making our wedding extra special. 🌟

It was love at first sight!
I can’t rate Tawstock Court and the wonderful Laura highly enough! - There really aren’t enough stars! This was the first and only wedding venue we looked at, it was love at first sight! It is just as beautiful inside as it out. Unfortunately lockdown hit a month before our wedding and if it weren’t for how supportive, understanding and kind Laura had been through it we would have struggled with the postponement. With Laura’s help we decided to have a small wedding last minute in September and we couldn’t have wished for a better day! The venue has multiple spots in which to hold the ceremony so when the forecast was sunny we quickly changed it to an outside wedding. Despite having to scale back our plans we were able to keep in line with the government guidelines and have a safe wedding without worry. For any couples thinking of viewing/booking, a few of Tawstock’s highlights - The space is fantastically flexible, I was surprised at how well it worked for a small wedding after booking it with a big wedding in mind The bar is beautiful! Center of the venue with sofas and a fire. Lots of accommodation including the honeymoon suite which is big enough and well equipped for bridal prep. Breakfast the next morning was SO yummy! We followed it with a walk around the surrounding woods. Laura put us first, she worked so hard to make the day possible and run smoothly, I can’t thank her and her team enough! X

Outstanding all round.
Outstanding all round. We weren't expecting Tawstock to feel like "our kind of venue" having previously had our hearts set on a barn or marquee on the cliffs... but Laura and Tawstock instantly captivated us and our wedding became something more perfect for us than we could have ever imagined. A few highlights: - Laura and co - first and foremost, Laura is the most amazing person to work with in the run up to our wedding and I wouldn't have wanted anyone else running the show on the day, she was phenomenal. As were all her staff. - That view! - Inside and outside ceremony choices where neither would have felt second best. - Fantastic flexible space allowing you to create the perfect flow for the day, whatever the weather. - Gorgeous central bar area, keeping people near the action. - Beautiful courtyard. - High quality on site accommodation. The list is really the tip of the iceberg... it is impossible to describe the feel and potential of Tawstock Court. It's a "blank canvas" with such warmth and charm. This venue will allow you to create whatever feel you'd like for your wedding day. I would urge anyone to have a viewing here, even if you aren't sure if it's "your kind of venue" we didn't think it was ours... we couldn't have been more wrong. Thank you xxxx
