Elegant country house sleeping 14 with a hot tub, perfect for wedding parties and special weekends near Cornish beaches

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Burncoose House, Gwennap, Cornwall, sleeps 6-14 in 7 bedrooms.

Burncoose House is set within 30 acres of mature woodland gardens offering privacy, tranquility and wonderful views from every window. With decor to reflect its Georgian heritage and all the modern touches you could wish for.

This country house is suitable for parties of friends, family reunions, special celebrations and weddings. It is also a great venue for corporate and business use, or retreats. The large level expanse of lawn at the front of the house is perfect for marquees for up to 150 guests and the house is also licensed for civil marriages.

The reception rooms of Burncoose House are large, bright and airy and include a dining room to seat up to 18 guests and a large well appointed kitchen with breakfast table. The drawing room is beautifully decorated and has big comfortable sofas and armchairs. The open fires in the reception rooms keep the house cosy in the cooler months.

Beautifully decorated spacious en suite bedrooms accommodating up to 6 guests.

For relaxation there is a hot tub and shower situated in the sheltered rear courtyard. For recreation, table football and table tennis are provided along with croquet for the lawn. The conservatory overlooks the gardens and with its glitter ball and Bluetooth speaker is the perfect space for a party!

The woodland gardens are a delight and in the spring the magnolias, rhododendrons and camellias burst into colour followed by the hydrangeas in the summer months.
