Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Real Glamping at The Fir Hill, Colan, Newquay, Cornwall, sleeps 5-45 in 9 bedrooms.

Unusual in Cornwall in being able to accommodate over 50 people at a wedding venue (and more by arrangement), Fir Hill provides the perfect setting for a country wedding, given its isolated nature and yet proximity to Newquay Airport and railway and bus connections.

Whilst it is suited for most styles of weddings, it is ideally suited for wedfests (festival weddings) and the venue can provide woodland and orchard setting celebrations, as well as having a wedding licence in 4 areas within the Estate.

Fir Hill hosts regular wedding fairs which provide an excellent method of understanding the potential ways in which the site at Fir Hill can be tailored to the couples’ requirements.

We cater for large and smaller weddings; the Barn and Cowshed are available together for weddings of over 75 guests or separately for smaller events. Both have a wedding licence....and one of the yurts is also available for elopement weddings for very small groups of less than 20 people. In addition the Outdoor Kitchen can be easily converted to accommodate a wedding ceremony (it also has a wedding licence).

We have developed a preferred suppliers list which can supply marquees, large catering tipis, food and catering, entertainers, mobile bars. Each supplier knows the venue well, which prevents the need for any additional site visits in advance.

One of main attractions of the venue for couples and their guests is that the site is 100% off grid (10kW solar power station, solar thermal hot water with biomass burner backup, and borehole and spring water), although it does place some restrictions on the electrical appliances that can be used on-site without the hire of an electrical generator (which is a normal requirement for weddings these days).

We offer the facility of staying at the Fir Hill in advance to assess the site, useful for couples who do not live locally. Should you decide to book the venue for your wedding, this cost will be deducted from the wedding bill.
