Can I hold a small party at Porthpean House? An event that caters for up to 30 people can be accommodated within the house. However the house is only equipped for 21 people (sleeping & eating). Over 30 people requires you to hire a marquee, generators and portaloos. It will therefore attract a different booking rate.

Can I have my civil ceremony at Porthpean House? We are not licensed for civil ceremonies; St Austell is the nearest Register Office. The closest church is St Levan’s in Porthpean village.

Can I have a wedding party at Porthpean House? The house holds a maximum of 30 people at any time. If you would like to hold your reception here it is necessary to hire in portaloos, caterers and a marquee (see below). Marquees for up to 150 people can be erected 2 days preceding the wedding. This means we may require a booking for longer than a normal week or weekend if your wedding is on a Saturday, as Friday is the normal changeover day for the house.
For Example: Wedding party on Saturday   requires 10 day hire.  Marquee erected on Wed/Thurs and dismantled Mon/Tues following week.
For Example: Wedding party on Sunday requires 7 day hire.  Marquee erected on Friday and dismantled Tues following week.
