A stay at Gwavas Garden Homestead allows you a unique
opportunity to literally live in history, as you are transported
back 120 years, to the world of early pioneering settlers.

Inside the homestead, guests can ask to view some of the fascinating family
memorabilia collected over the last one hundred years; outside, the beautiful
gardens and grounds are yours to roam.

In ancient Cornish, the word Gwavas means "permanent steading" as opposed
to the summer pasture; in other words, a place where roots are put down, and
histories begin. What better place then to celebrate a wedding, commemorate
a significant milestone, or launch a new direction for your business.

And with extensive outdoor areas, Gwavas Garden Homestead offers plenty of
options for open air events. Your hosts Stuart and Phyllida Gibson, can help you
with marquee hire, sound systems and other requirements you may need.

For weddings, tour groups and larger functions, a fully equipped commercial
kitchen is available, Gwavas Garden Homestead can supply catering to your
event, or your caterers may use the facilities on site themselves.

For those wishing to stay longer, the Swinhoe suite with a king sized four poster
bed is available, as well as two other rooms, one with twin beds, the other with
a queen sized bed.
