There's no such thing as a typical wedding.... it's your day, so the team will work with you to make sure it's all about you. On sunny days an outdoor wedding might be followed by live music on the lawn or traditional lawn games. On cooler days enjoy log fires and a cosy, comfy ambience. Either way, your wedding breakfast will be a highlight of the day. In the evening choose a band, a DJ and/or maybe a casino. Firework displays are a wonderful addition, or for a lower cost option, sparklers make a great photo opportunity!

Whether it's a small intimate wedding of 2 - 20 guests, a simple afternoon wedding, or a bigger, exclusive use affair, The Horn of Plenty prides itself on bespoke weddings. Rather than providing packages, the team would prefer to chat to you, find out what you are looking for, and discuss options with you. Special offers are available for Monday weddings and Winter weddings, whereby there is no charge for exclusive use, saving you up to £3,000!

Arrival information and directions

Address: Gulworthy, Tavistock, Devon, TavistockPL19 8JD, United Kingdom

From Plymouth, take the A386 north to Tavistock via Yelverton, and turn left onto the A390 towards Liskeard/Callington. After 3 miles turn right at Gulworthy Cross and follow signs for The Horn of Plenty.

Please do not follow SatNav if coming from Plymouth, as it will take you down a very steep and narrow country lane.  Much easier to come via Yelverton and Tavistock.
