Boconnoc House and Gardens, Cornwall
Anthony Fortescue, owner of Boconnoc, wanted to open up the estate to give others the opportunity to enjoy its magic, space and tranquillity. The House and historic grounds are available to hire for weddings, corporate days, private parties and events. As Boconnoc is a family run business, we offer total flexibility and versatility, nothing is too much trouble and we want everyone to experience the hidden beauty of the place. This unique setting is a wonderful escape from the busy outside world, offering holiday accommodation, including cottages in the 17th century Stable Yard for up to 20 guests.
Boconnoc is located 15 minutes from Bodmin and 40 minutes from Newquay airport, within easy reach of both the north and south coasts. There is a deer park within the grounds and the gardens, bursting with reds, pinks and yellows in the Spring and early Summer when the rhododendrons, azaleas and camelias are in flower, are open to visitors on Sundays in May. Group visits to the house, church and garden can be arranged at any time of the year. The Estate has been used for numerous film locations including Rosamund Pilcher, scenes from the 1993 film of ‘The Three Musketeers’ and the BBC 2 production of ‘Daphne’.
It gives us as a family so much pleasure to be able to share what we are lucky enough to have, with those who come here for weddings and events.
