About this space

Our historic fort is a one-off, unique kind of place. It stands alone, quite literally. So if you’re looking for a coastal wedding venue to make your own, you’ve probably found it. Imagine a home-from-home vibe and you’re halfway there (if ‘home’ happens to be a Napoleonic fort, complete with drawbridge)!

There’s a set of steps leading from the Fort directly down to our very own beach where you can steal a little private time together, frolic in the waves with your wedding guests and catch some very special memories – the sea views from the beach are almost surreal.

A wedding here is all about choice. You are not restricted by us – it’s up to you!  We been a dedicated wedding venue for over twenty years. The experienced team love nothing more than supporting you create the wedding of your dreams. Whether your want a simple, elegant affair or a magical carnival, we will help you make it happen. And with the stunning backdrop of Whitsand bay as well as the dramatic Historic Fort, the day will take your breath away!

The Fort's Team

Our team of experienced wedding professionals put their heart and soul into helping you create the wedding of your dreams. The Fort has been lovingly restored and transformed into a unique exclusive use wedding space. We can show you how the Fort, surrounding grounds and private access beach can work for you as you plan your special day. You are free to choose exactly how you want to enjoy the spaces, designing an event that is completely unique to you.

House rules

Offering you choice is right at the heart of everything that we do at Polhawn Fort. We strive to ensure our guests can have their day exactly how they want it.

Because of this we have minimised our restrictions to those that are unavoidable due to licensing or our location in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

For example, you can only have acoustic music outside and any paid entertainment or bar must finish by 12.30am. We don’t impose a ‘bed-time’ with our in-house entertainment system and license meaning you can continue to enjoy the space as long as you like.

We were lucky enough to have our wedding here on 16th September 2017. The venue is absolutely beautiful, no matter what the weather, and we couldn’t be happier to recommend it to other couples. There is plenty of room to sleep family and friends in lovely rooms and both the grounds and interior are absolutely stunning. It doesn’t need much dressing at all! Having the venue for longer than a day really does mean you get to catch up with your loved ones in a way you never would if you had one big wedding day. 10 million stars x – September 2017

So myself and Jordan got married here just last Saturday. The whole weekend was amazing from start to finish! We couldn’t fault the fort or the staff that we met or that were on hand to help us. All our friends and family as well as this beautiful venue made our day perfect!!! This is a stunning venue inside and out. I recommend to anyone who wants a real homey feeling wedding venue – February 2018
