Launcells Barton undergoes renovation as wedding venue

06 Jul 2016

Grade II listed building Launcells Barton in North Cornwall is undergoing restoration to create a destination wedding venue

Based in Launcells, near Bude, Launcells Barton, a family-owned Georgian manor house, is set to be renovated.

The project will see the disused agricultural buildings at Launcells Barton transformed to create a ceremony barn, licensed outdoor walled ceremony garden and guest accommodation.

With an aim to position Launcells Barton as one of Cornwall's most sought-after wedding venues, the work will also unveil a purpose-built events barn, accommodating up to 200 seated guests and an additional 150 evening guests.

Current owners of Launcells Barton, Matthew Stokes and Lara Gill, said: “We have spent a great deal of time and thought on the concept and design of all the spaces and locations available for weddings.

"For the new events barn, we wanted to keep the character of Launcells Barton and feel of our Georgian house apparent. We wanted to combine English country charm with a rustic farm feel, to create the perfect atmosphere for couples and their guests to relax throughout their special day. To achieve this we have, wherever possible, used reclaimed items from the farm; we even have an old mahogany organ which we are using as a drinks cabinet for the new bar.”

The events barn will be complete by April 2017 and available for weddings from July 2016.
