This grand house in the Cornish countryside is a secluded spot for picturesque weddings.

In the middle of a 2,000-acre estate, Pentillie sits on the banks of the river Tamar, overlooking Dartmoor. Our favourite ceremony spot is the Victorian Bathing Hut on the riverbank (which seats 60), where you can arrive by boat, or the pretty Loggia is an outdoor alternative for larger guest lists (it seats 200).

The East Terrace lawn is perfect for marquees, and don't miss the wisteria avenues for photo opportunities.

Ceremony capacity: 200; Corkage: £8
