Polhawn Fort

Reaching out into the English Channel in the southeast corner of Cornwall, the Rame Peninsula is something of a forgotten – and unspoilt – corner of the county. As you weave your path along the breathtaking ocean road towards this secluded spot, you’ll see Polhawn Fort nestled on the western tip, where the land meets the sea.

This extraordinary Napoleonic fort stands in a wildly dramatic location. The building looks out across miles of ocean; across the rugged crags and folds of the Cornish coastline that curl into the distance as far as the Lizard peninsula. Sweeping lawns and wildflowers blanket the beautiful grounds and a path leads down to the venue’s own secluded beach.

A drawbridge and granite spiral staircase leads into the Grand Napoleonic Hall, an ambient space with a series of vaulted ceilings and windows overlooking the sea. The bedrooms are located over two floors; each cosy room faces the ocean, boasting dramatic views across the cliffs and seascape.

A wedding at Polhawn Fort is characterised by the bespoke factor. Couples may have exclusive use of the venue for a three or four-day package – allowing for an extended tailor-made wedding celebration in total privacy.

Ceremonies may take place in the enchanting setting of the Grand Hall before up to 125 people; if you’re planning a smaller ceremony, the Emperor’s Room offers the same ambience on a more intimate scale for up to 30 guests. In keeping with the personalised ethos of the venue, each space may be decorated entirely as you wish.

The Summer House offers an al fresco option for the ceremony. Imagine exchanging vows with your guests seated on the lawn before you and an achingly beautiful seascape beyond, the call of sea birds and the murmur of the tide your soundtrack. After the ceremony, you may choose to steal a few moments to yourselves on the beach below the Fort. The venue is equally atmospheric in winter. Think crackling log fires, candlelit ceremonies and the thunder of the tide on the rocks below.
