Tucked away on a secluded corner of the Roseland Peninsula, Rosteague is one of Cornwall’s hidden jewels. The charms of this distinctive manor house lie beyond its medieval origins and striking Elizabethan façade: its rich sense ofcharacter is enhanced by hidden stairways and smugglers tunnels, exquisite gardens and surrounding rural gladeswhich stretch down to a shell-strewn beach.
Rosteague offers a series of diverse settings for a civil ceremony. Whether within the light and airy White DrawingRoom, with its intricately plastered ceiling, or the potent historic character of the Long Hall, with its ancient granitearchway and antique furniture, the reception rooms of the house make for atmospheric and intimate settings.
Set amidst the elaborate parterres of box hedging in the French Garden, the thatched Summerhouse makes an utterlyunique place to exchange vows should the weather prove favourable. It also makes an idyllic place for your guests towander during the drinks reception.
If you take the marquee route, you have a choice of two equally romantic settings to stage your reception; both theCroquet Lawn and the Front Lawn boast sea views to one side and equally magnificent vistas of the house to theother. Alternatively, the Music Room provides a superb venue for the celebrations. Converted from an old Cider House and opening onto the French Garden, this room can accommodate up to 70 seated guests and boasts a resident baby grand piano, its superb acoustics making it the ideal space for live music and dancing.
Expect decadent luxury when you retire to the endlessly romantic bedroom. Furnished with an opulently draped four-poster bed, the room opens onto an elegantly styled bathroom where a copper bath is perfectly positioned for drinking in sea views with a celebratory glass of bubbly – quite simply a breathtakingly beautiful place to commence married life.
