Whether it’s your wedding day, a milestone birthday, your anniversary, a big family get together, a business weekend or just a lavish holiday to take some time out and recharge, here are our top tips to celebrate in style and make it one to remember.

Location, location, location

You need a show-stopping venue to create a truly show-stopping occasion.

Nestled in the heart of Cornwall just a short hop from the dramatic coastline, our Georgian house has been lovingly restored with décor to reflect its heritage but all the modern touches you could wish for. Our characterful property is elegant yet homely and is the perfect stage to create a truly unique and timeless experience.

Plus, all stays include free entry to the nearby historic Caerhays Castle Gardens – and what could be more magical than staying near a real-life castle?

Dress to impress

Sparkly dresses and dickey bows, or fascinators and top hats – we love any excuse to get truly suited and booted! Make your event feel extra elegant by dressing to match your surroundings.

Our opulent main staircase is the perfect place for a candid photo as your wedding dress train sweeps around the corner, or a how about a group shot of you all posing in your evening wear with a glass of bubbly in hand?

Make a meal of it

Our stunning kitchen might be the heart of the home, but it’s understandable if you don’t want to cook whilst the rest of your party are off celebrating. Add a bit of glitz and glamour to the event with a personal chef! We can arrange all kinds of catering – from a simple buffet, to a summer BBQ or a fully-catered experienced – so you can kick back and relax with everyone, just as you should be.

Obviously, it goes without saying that a champagne toast at every opportunity is a must!

The little touches

The trick in taking your special occasion to the next level is to surprise and delight. Why not have a special family member to show up unannounced or fireworks to finish off the evening? We’re here to help arrange whatever your heart desires to make your event utterly unforgettable.

We don’t want to give all of our secrets away, but we always go above and beyond to make sure you’re completely happy and relaxed both before you arrive and whilst you’re here – being greeted with a welcome hamper of delicious Cornish goodies certainly gets your stay off to the right start!

Create new traditions

We’re always very proud when hearing and reading the lovely comments of our guests; “it was like staying in a private hotel but with all the character of a private house,” “every detail had been thought of,” “everyone in our party was blown away,” “we’ve all stayed in luxurious accommodation but Burncoose was quite something else,” “we’ll definitely be back!”

Burncoose House is one of those places that will steal a piece of your heart as soon as you step through the door, with its timeless charm and relaxed, homely feel. Special occasions are made even more special with the promise of a return visit – what could be more magical than returning to celebrate your 20th anniversary in the same place that you said, ‘I do’?

Now you have all the inside info on how we take every occasion to the next level of unforgettable, all you need to do is show up, have a great time and remember to take lots of photos!
