For nearly 500 years, Pencarrow has been the much-loved home of the Molesworth-St Aubyns, ever since John Molesworth arrived from Northamptonshire to become the Auditor for the Duchy of Cornwall and Queen Elizabeth I.


Pencarrow House and Gardens lies at the foot of a sweeping valley nestled inbetween Bodmin and Wadebridge in north to mid Cornwall. The largely Georgian mansion is still owned and occupied by descendants of the family who settled there in the 1500s.


The 50 acres of gardens include the Italian Gardens, lovely lawns with magnificent specimen trees, woodland walks and lots of flowering plants and shrubs. In spring the Gardens and mile-long carriage drive are ablaze with camellias, rhododendrons and azaleas, as well as primroses and daffodils, closely followed by a haze of bluebells in May. Later on the blue hydrangeas are a magnificent sight all around the gardens and lake.


Did you know that the monkey puzzle tree got its name here my birds..?


A spectacular wedding venue to suit formal and informal weddings too, indoors or out, you can create your own special day to your own personal requirements.
