Stack House | Unique Wedding Venue | Cornwall

Weddings at The Stack

Trelion, Cornwall, UK

Peeking from a thicket of trees and surrounded by pastureland, this former engine house turned intimate wedding venue is located in the heart of mid-Cornwall's romantic Poldark country. The Stack appeals as much to barefoot brides seeking a bohemian wedding as it does to couples looking for a unique backdrop for the ultimate Cornish celebration.



Overlooking the magnificent Fal Valley, The Stack is a truly unique venue for an unforgettable wedding in Cornwall. Wrapped in a cluster of trees and nestled within established gardens, this former 19th century engine house exudes a rustic appeal and provides a striking backdrop for intimate gatherings and rural revelry. With beautiful churches and chapels close by, whether it's a civil or religious ceremony you opt for, The Stack is a magical venue at which to toast togetherness.


The Stack can sleep up to four guests, with closest family and friends on hand to assist with ensuring your wedding day vision is created. A restful beauty sleep is assured at The Stack, with bedrooms spread over three floors, each of the unique rooms affording a sumptuous place to unwind before and after the celebrations. If newlyweds are a need of a little 'us' time during the outdoor wedding celebrations, escape the madding crowds by taking a moment to reflect inside the haven of The Stack. 


Melding with the pastoral, Poldark-esque scenes beyond, the wraparound gardens and thicket of lush trees offer an informal setting for romance. For the perfect al fresco affair, twinkling lights in the woodland grotto will enhance celebrations under the stars, or you may prefer to host a seated wedding supper on the deck to really immerse yourself in the rolling countryside views, whatever the weather; just add high-spirited revelry.

From the owner

“Intimate, dramatic and surrounded in history, The Stack House is a unique wedding venue in Cornwall for brides seeking a truly magical Cornish wedding set within established gardens and band of shady trees.”

From the owner

Lying within the secluded hamlet of Trelion, overlooking the upper reaches of the magnificent Fal Valley, the setting of The Stack is magical... the undulating countryside is nothing short of a Tolkien landscape. We relish waking up each day to birdsong, spending a relaxing end of day in the hot tub and stargazing from the attic bedroom.

As a family, we've found that for each of us the Stack holds a different appeal; from getting back-to-nature, to toasting the end of another day with friends, or blasting music through every floor of the property.

The previous owners were musicians and from song-writing to novel creation, we feel that the very special ambience that The Stack possesses is conducive to getting those creative juices flowing! We hope you find this a wedding venue to suit all seasons, from enjoying the cosy basement cinema room to flinging open the back door and reclining on the deck.

Guest Testimonials

The most perfect wedding week. We got to enjoy the build-up of decorating, eating, drinking, and laughing. The day itself could not have been more perfect with the most relaxing environment and creating a fun and laughter-filled day. We were then privileged to enjoy the wind down with many moments spent reminiscing and recalling our special memories of the day.

We had our sights set on an intimate wedding ceremony. So, when we discovered The Stack during our venue search, we knew it fit the brief: it was small, intimate, and unique, the kind of place you fall in love with at first sight. We were able to plan our entire day from afar, and the events planner at Unique Homestays was always on hand with expert advice ensuring a seamless approach to what became one of the most memorable days of our lives.

I just wanted to thank you for all of your help and support in the run-up to our wedding at the beautiful Stack on the 30th of September 2023. We had an incredible time and will treasure the memories forever!

Our wedding went down an absolute treat. Everyone was praising the venue from the start and throughout, including guests and suppliers. It really is a perfect setting for a smaller, intimate wedding. A special day that we will never forget!

We came here to renew our vows after 25 years of marriage and a couple of broken wedding rings. We had no idea there were two separate wedding areas which worked out just perfectly and were a great surprise. We have fallen in love with this beautiful home and gardens, and really don’t want to leave – it is perfect! Thank you for everything! We truly love it here.

Unique extras

From private chefs to luxury at-home spa therapists and adrenalin-fuelled retreats, once you’ve booked your stay we’ll introduce you to our owner-recommended suppliers to create a truly bespoke, memorable escape.
