Dating back to 1866, this Victorian country house was originally built for James Richards, the Duke of Bedford's Mine Captain, responsible for extracting tin and copper from the Tamar Valley. In 1967 it was converted into a gourmet restaurant by the first British woman to be awarded a Michelin star, Sonia Stevenson.

It has steadily gone from strength to strength; accommodation was added in 1985, and the Coach House extended in 2014.

Today the hotel sits firmly on the foodie map, and has plenty of awards and accolades to its name. Just a glimpse of our awards; South West Wedding Awards 2016 - Gold Winner & Visit England national small hotel of the year 2015 - Silver Award.


This stunning mid-Victorian manor house presents a choice of three beautiful rooms for civil ceremonies and receptions. The house can seat up to 90 guests for a civil ceremony, followed by an equal number for a formal wedding breakfast reception.

Civil Ceremony Capacity - 90 Guests

    We would like to thank each and every one of you for the most amazing experience from the moment of booking our wedding, right until we checked out on Sunday. Everything was faultless and all our guests complimented the venue, food and rooms. Please can you extend this email onto your kitchen and housekeeping staff too as I know they often go unnoticed.

    We honestly had the best time and were so sad when it was over.

    We will most definitely be back next year for our anniversary and hopefully for lunch in the meantime!

    Thanks again.

  • Charlotte and Laurence

    I just wanted to say a big thank you to you both and to the team for making our wedding day perfect. The venue was gorgeous and we were so lucky with the weather. We had so may comments from guests about the food and the staff - everybody was just brilliant. The only thing we do wish was that it didn't go so quickly!

    Thank you both for being so accommodating in the months running up to our wedding and we hope to come and stay with you in the future.

    Many thanks
    Charlotte and Laurence

    I got married here on the 20/10/17, the staff went above and beyond and exceeded every expectation. Thank you for your kindness, patience and making my day perfect!

    The food is the best I have ever eaten, the grounds are beautiful, rooms gorgeous and it's dog friendly! You will not be disappointed with a visit to this beautiful gem. I can't wait to go back!

  • Clare & Dave

    Thank You! We had the most fantastic day, as did all our guests! Everyone loved the venue, commenting on how beautiful it is and how great the food was!

    I really can't think of anything that would have been done better!! You are so obviously experienced in facilitating weddings, with such attention to detail, which shone though throughout the whole of the experiences. We loved creating our own menu, experiencing a night there together and being able to completely personalise our day.

    Can't wait to come back and reminisce.

    Thank you so much again, Clare & Dave Xxx
