Beacon Crag is a wildly beautiful wedding venue set on the south coast of Cornwall, on the edge of Porthleven. Complete with accommodation, the house is set within five acres of private clifftop grounds with its own access to the sea and rocky coves below. The terraced garden with lawns sweeping down to the sea is the ideal location to admire the breathtaking scenery of the rugged Cornish coastline, perfect for elopements, intimate celebrations and marquee weddings.

Set in a stunning position on the cliffside near Porthleven on Cornwall's sub-tropical south coast, Beacon Crag presents a beautifully wild locale in which to wed.

The stirring seascapes are flanked by the ambient array of spaces to celebrate, from intimate (fully licensed) ceremonies to marquee receptions on the cliff, all of which ooze a palpable sense of romance.

Built in 1887 for a local artist, the house spoils visitors with five acres of private clifftop grounds that afford its own access to the sea and rocky coves below. What's more, the terraced garden boasts pristine lawns that sweep down to the sea, making those newlywed photo shoot opportunities all the more special.

Those lucky enough to bed down in this wonderful home will discover stylish and fully equipped rooms featuring undisturbed sea views, en suite facilities and king-size beds alongside a host of other comforts and amenities.

With ample parking and the harbour town of Porthleven situated just minutes away, it's a highly accommodating and conveniently placed venue that – being open all year round – allows wildly romantic and scenically staged weddings whatever the season and weather, whether you opt for a windswept, storm-watching winter affair or exotic summer fling on the Cornish clifftops, Beacon Crag is an incredible choice.

The venue of dreams

We always knew we wanted to get married in Porthleven, and Beacon Crag was the first and only venue we were interested in - nothing else could possibly compare.
Samantha was extremely accommodating, and offered us many options and choices so that we were able to really make the venue our own for the day. We opted to get married outdoors, and it was the most beautiful, special set up for us to have our ceremony. Samantha organised and set up everything, there was absolutely no stress for us at all.
Our guests were absolutely wowed by the house, the landscape, and the gorgeous ceremony setting with the floral arch (which was the perfect centre piece), and it was genuinely a breath taking place for our lives to begin together.
To be able to take the most incredible photos in a number of beautiful locations around the venue meant that we can treasure the memories forever.
Drinks and food were brought out at perfect intervals, and Samantha had mastered being so attentive to us and our guests, whilst also not being at all intrusive on the day.
We chose to stay at the house on our wedding night, and our suite was just outstanding. Beautiful rooms, stunning views - it was perfect.
We look back on our wedding with the happiest, fondest memories at Beacon Crag, and we feel so lucky to have been able to say our vows in a venue as close to heaven as you can get. It will always have a special place in our hearts, and we will without a doubt go back to visit.

Fabulous hosts , nothing to much trouble and WOW what a stunningly beautiful venue 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

We found this venue quite by chance on our coastal walk whilst on holiday in Porthleven in July 2020, looked them up and couldn’t quite believe our eyes at how stunningly beautiful Beacon Crag was both inside the house and the views outside .
The following year we popped along to see Sam and get an idea of our ceremony options , we just wanted something low key , elopement wedding , somewhere special to us ( Porthleven) Sam was so helpful and understanding right from the start even sourced some flower towers very last minute for us and gave us contact details for a photographer also a very last minute decision on our part .
Our day was just perfect, everything ran smoothly, chilled and relaxed just the two of us with our 4 kids and their partners .
Beacon Crag has everything for a small intimate ceremony to a large gathering of family and friends.
Beautiful setting whatever the weather .
Our wedding photos are amazing and still don’t quite believe that our dream venue was just there waiting for us to find .
Porthleven is even more special to us now thanks to our lucky find of Beacon Crag and its amazing hostess Sam .
Simply cannot rate highly enough
