Exclusive Engine House weddings in Cornwall

The Venue

A unique wedding venue in Cornwall, The Stack is quite unlike anything that has come before it. This former 19th century engine house exudes a pared-back, rustic feel, providing lovebirds with a striking backdrop for the intimate wedding of their dreams.

In and Around the Grounds

This exclusive wedding venue in Cornwall is set overlooking the magnificent Fal Valley, a pastoral paradise steeped with Poldarkian intrigue. The wraparound gardens provide an informal setting which can be decorated and used in whichever way you wish... perhaps you'll fashion a pathway of jam jars with tealights twinkling inside, or hire a boat bar bedecked with a riot of floral blooms!

The Ceremony

The house holds a civil ceremony licence so you can say sweet "I do's" beneath the roof of an enchanting piece of Cornish history, friends and family gathered all around. The surrounding area also houses some beautiful churches and chapels, so whether you decide on a traditional church wedding or a fairytale elopement for two in your own private engine house filled to the rafters with history and character, the choice is entirely yours.


For al fresco affairs, twinkling lights in the trees will enhance celebrations under the stars, or you may prefer to host a seated wedding supper on the deck under an elegant stretch tent which ensures the rolling countryside views can still be enjoyed, no matter what the weather. High-spirited toasting and revelry will be well matched with smokey barbecue feasts, homemade pizzas and dancing in the moonlight, making way for a truly memorable experience.  

The Accommodation

The Stack can sleep up to six guests, meaning your nearest and dearest can help you to relax whilst they assist in the preparations during the run-up to the big day itself. Arranged over three floors, the beautifully-appointed bedrooms offer lucky overnight guests a sumptuous place to unwind before and after the celebrations. Bridesmaids and groomsmen will love to get ready using the huge gold mirror in the opulent bathroom, whilst the snug cinema room will provide a peaceful sanctuary for newlyweds to catch a moment away from the excitement of the rest of the house.

Our Take

Property Owner Sarah says

Any wedding at The Stack is pure magic. Intimate and dramatic, surrounded in history and seemingly cut off from the rest off civilisation; it´s a venue a world away from anything I´ve ever known and the perfect venue for proclaiming love and dancing the night away.

Before Let pre-wedding nerves melt away with an evening spent in the sunken hot tub, chilled Prosecco within arm's reach. Come morning, stretch from beneath the covers of your enormous cloud-soft bed and wake to the smell of fresh, buttery croissants baking in the large Range cooker and the sound of excited bridesmaids giggling in the kitchen.

During Set up lawn games under the shade of the trees in The Stack's garden and enjoy the friendly sound of families involved in a Giant Jenga tournament as canapés and fizz are offered around your guests in the afternoon sunshine. 

After There's no need to rush home after the wedding; enjoy the afterglow the following day by basking in the tranquil grounds of The Stack. Sink into the hot tub as the barbecue gently sizzles fresh lamb steaks from the nearest butcher and revel in that rosy radiance only known to newlyweds. By night, head to the south coast for a casual beachside dinner at Sam's on the Beach in Polkerris, where moonlit dips in the ocean are highly encouraged.
