Weddings & parties

At Restronguet we are able to offer an almost unique wedding reception or party/function venue. There are other places that offer facilities for weddings, receptions or parties but it is the location and the view that are unique to our fields.

We have a choice of two sites, each being situated at the top of a field that overlooks the Fal Estuary or Carrick Roads and the countryside beyond. The breathtaking vistas can be seen from nowhere else. There are no roads or paths that offer the same view and this same exclusivity also provides the privacy that is so important on your big day. The site is exclusively yours for the day.

Both sites are sheltered from the prevailing wind by a Cornish hedge topped with old oak trees. The views are uninterrupted as the field drops away out in front of the site, it catches the sun right through to the evening until dusk when the far shore of the Carrick Roads takes on an orange glow. If your dates coincide with the right part of the lunar cycle the moon then rises over the eastern banks of the estuary.

Both sites can accommodate the largest marquee and there is ample parking.

‘The Kibbin’  is accessed from the road by a clean and well maintained farm track that runs along the edge of a field. We provide three phase mains electricity complete with 13amp, 16 amp and 32 amp sockets for lighting, bands or discos and cooking. Mains water is also laid on and both power and water are included in the tariff.

Our other site, ‘Ladies Close’ also has mains water, but power needs to be provided by a generator, which can easily be hired as part of the package through the marquee company you choose to use.

We do ask that fireworks be set-off by 10.30pm and  music and parties must finish by midnight. We do not want to be damp squibs about celebrations but we do not want to upset the neighbourhood.

Each site is available for a minimum of four days before the event for setting-up and preparations, and we allow a couple of days for clearing away. If there is nothing happening the week before or after more time could be arranged.

We own  two holiday cottages on the farm, Chybean (sleeps 2) and Chyvounder (Sleeps 5) available to rent for those who have guests coming from far away. Please note that the cottages are generally rented for holidays, so at peak times will need to be booked for the full week, from Friday to Friday. We find many of our couple’s friends and families make the most of the opportunity to enjoy a week’s stay and make a holiday of the occasion. More details of the cottages are available on this web site, or call for details about booking. There are other holiday lets  nearby that also operate the same policy at peak times, plus a couple of  B&Bs, plus all the Hotels and Guesthouses in Falmouth.

Should you have a caravan, we also have a small 5 van CL caravan site for Caravan Club members, which can also be booked for families and guests.

We enjoy the spot where we live and never tire of the views and we would be delighted to share it with you for your big day.
