Welcome to Pengenna Manor

Tucked away in a quiet, secluded valley just three miles inland from the North Cornish coast lies Pengenna Manor, an 800-year-old private family home set in over 300 acres of beautiful Cornish countryside.

Completely private and exclusively yours, whether you're dreaming of a grand country house wedding with carriages, canap├ęs on the lawn and a string quartet, a simple and natural countryside wedding with welly boots, tractors for transport and hay bales, or a bohemian vision of giant tented tipis, acoustic guitars and lanterns strung amongst the trees, this hidden gem is the ideal venue for your special day.

About Pengenna Manor

Pengenna Manor has its origins as a small medieval hall house that was dramatically extended during the reign of Elizabeth I, refaced in the late 17th century, and further extended in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Our family has been at Pengenna for over 150 years and seven generations. Having been fortunate to enjoy this fabulous setting for many family parties, get-togethers and weddings over this time, in 2012 we decided to open it up for others to love as much as we have.

2014 saw one of the biggest redevelopments of the Manor in many years, with the creation of several brand new areas for hosting different events. Using complementary landscaping and tree planting, we established a purpose-designed garden suitable for all styles of marquee, and an avenue of blossom trees leading to a summer house licensed for weddings and civil partnership ceremonies. Inside the Manor we restored the Drawing Room in the Elizabethan wing to turn it into a gorgeous indoor ceremony space. Phase 2 of our re-development was completed in June 2015 which saw the further restoration of four luxurious bedrooms bursting with historic character inside the Manor. These lovely bedrooms are now available exclusively for wedding and event guests on a per-night bed and breakfast basis. We look forward to welcoming you to our home.
