The Bolenna


"What a lovely place. Had a lovely meal for my birthday. Really enjoyed our time in your sunny secret garden"


With its extensive and creatively planted gardens The Bolenna is the perfect backdrop for your wedding.

We have accommodation for up 22 guests staying on site and a little more for formal seating in the restaurant and bar. With around 100 guests attending a meal in an informal seating plan extending to use of the grounds either covered or open. And now we can offer our brand new Giant Hat Nordic Tipi from The Cornish Tent Company.

There is a flexible kitchen that can cater for all tastes without compromising on quality and provenance of our ingredients. We even have a fully equipped outdoor kitchen for freshly produced street food if your style is more flip flops and boho than suited and booted. Both ends of the spectrum are well within our remit and we look forward to helping you plan your perfect day.

Your Special Day

Our bar is well stocked, and we work with local wine merchants to keep our wine list current and exciting, and we feature the best of Cornish products wherever possible. We can source music, flowers, photographers and beauticians and can accommodate a marquee for larger events.

Our yoga and wellbeing suite has a spa tub and a peaceful planting to calm any pre-wedding nerves and our garden rooms make perfect honeymoon or bridal suites.

We have a full wedding license available from 2022, contacts for registrars, and we have a local celebrant who works with commitment ceremonies and other life event celebrations for a less formal approach.

Call us for a chat to discuss your perfect wedding and see how we can help.

Parties & Other Fun

We regularly play host to a wide range of parties, events and gigs. 

With a flexible outdoor space, covered or open, accommodation for up to 22 guests on site and one of the best stocked bars around, tell us what your plans are and we can work with you to make your event one of a kind!

"We have booked our wedding reception here and I am so excited!"


last call for poldark tours

After eight years sitting at the zenith of Poldark related tourism, we have decided 2023 will be Karen’s final year of touring guests around Cornwall’s outstanding landscapes, tourist attractions and show stopping filming locations.

This also means that any and all visits to Nampara (pictured) will cease after 2023, as it is a location Karen has exclusive access to. So if seeing Nampara and experiencing Karen’s expertise and charm first hand is on your Poldark bucket list, this will likely be the final opportunity to do so.

Places are limited for next year, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch, it would b wonderful to see you all –
