New for summer 2021 - Exclusive use of this historic rural farm in the heart of Cornwall licenced for civil ceremonies. Tucked away in 100 acres of farmland, Avalen nestles in amongst rolling countryside and rambling hedgerows. The venue has been sculptured from an outstanding set of traditional granite barns, sympathetically converted to retain their original beauty and charm. The central courtyard can be used for your wedding ceremony and for games and socialising, adding another dimension to your celebrations. Helping to craft a unique, flexible and relaxed occasion for you and your guests we can offer you sole use of Avalen over three days. We will be registered to hold civil services at the farm, or you can choose to have a celebrant – or just hold your wedding reception here. What ever your ideas, what ever the size wedding, we offer the blank canvas and help to personalise your perfect day.

Avalen Farm caters for both intimate and elaborate weddings offering the perfect, romantic, wedding venue just minutes from the A30 and the centre of Cornwall. This magical set of interlinking barns has a unique charm of their own and can be exclusively yours to create your most memorable wedding. Although there is a dedicated ceremony room, you are welcome to choose an outdoor service or use the stunning purpose built wedding breakfast barn with its amazing views over an area of outstanding natural beauty. We pride ourselves on our versatility knowing that every wedding is unique. We have thought about every aspect of your big day and designed the wedding venue accordingly, offering you an amazing venue with Internal moving walls so the rooms can be the perfect size for the perfect wedding.

Avalen again offers you versatility when it comes to accommodation. The former Cart House has been stylishly converted to offer the bride and her closest friends somewhere to stay the night before the wedding. Being onsite and hidden from the wedding guests, the Cart House is the perfect place for them all to get ready. There is plenty of room for hair and beauty professionals to do their magic and retracting glass doors allows everyone to spill out into the walled garden where you can sip champagne and relax. This walled retreat is also the perfect place for the happy couple to have five minutes alone together later.

Upstairs in the Cart House you will find a romantic bolthole for the newly weds. A unique handcrafted slate roman bath will enable you to both stop, relax, and reflect on your special day, before retiring to the luxurious super king sized bed. Views across the surrounding farmland add to the magic of this stunning honeymoon suite. Downstairs there is a second bathroom with double shower and a small kitchenette with comfy bed sofas for use on the eve of the wedding.

For your guests we offer exclusive use of our group accommodation just minutes away at from our other farm. The award winning 6 ensuite barn conversion, two bedroomed farm cottage and two bedroomed lodge offers spacious accommodation for up to 28 guests. Transport is provided to get your guests from Tor View to the wedding ceremony and return them at the end off the day’s celebrations.

    Incredible venue and people

    Incredible venue and the Avalen team is so helpful and friendly! Couldn’t have asked for a more special day. Highly recommend

    Avalen Farm's reply:

    Thank you for taking the time to write a review following your fabulous wedding with us last week. What an amazing day. Everything was perfect, even the weather. You both looked stunning and I am sure you have some brilliant photographs to help you remember your very special day. It was a lovely to meet you and have you as our first wedding... Take care and looking forward to seeing you again when you visit your tree! Best wishes, Clare.
