As you drive down the winding country lanes on the edge of Bodmin moor, the wide panoramic views soon give in to a dense wooded valley where you will find a wonderfully secluded spot, where the hills tumble into valley below and acre upon acre of wildly beautiful countryside, which stretches as far as the eye can see, that’s where you’ll find The Green.
The former working farm, the original home of Cornish Yarg, houses beautiful granite-faced barns which have been painstakingly, transformed into a sumptuous retreat, housing luxury accommodation, while preserving its rich character. A ready-made wedding village, The Green is a wholly private and a blank canvas to make your own for your wedding. Whether it’s a traditional affair, a cosy DIY country celebration or a laidback festival-style wedding, their ethos is one of flexibility at the Green.
A series of options are available depending on the scale of your celebration. Opt for an exclusive hire wedding and enjoy having the venue to yourselves for up to 120 guests and accommodation for 32 guests for three days.

Green was such a perfect place to get married
Firstly, we just want to say a big thank you to you and Zoe for everything you did to make our wedding go perfectly. We had the best day/weekend, better than we thought was possible and the Green was such a perfect place to get married and celebrate with all our friends and family. It was everything we wanted and imagined for our big day, so thank you for allowing us to get married at the Green. We also hugely got away with the weather so think of ourselves as very lucky indeed!

I couldn?t have even dreamt our wedding would be so wonderful
Looking back I cant quite believe it was the most perfect day. I woke up on the morning of my wedding to look out across the views to see the most glorious weather ... the arbour glittering in the warm cornish sunshine. I couldn?t quite believe my luck ... we could get married outside, overlooking the stunning countryside! the registrars were really so lovely and kind, talking us through each part, reassuring us as were were each a little nervous! after the ceremony it was so lovely for our guests to have pasties and Pimms on the lawn outside the grand house in the sun, while we went off around the property for photographs? which I must say with a gentle breeze blowing and the sunshine ... turned out beautifully. The ones in particular are my favourites are the ones of us at the lookout point with the moor in the background. anyway basically from start to finish we had the best wedding I could have ever dreamed of and getting married at the green was perfect for us, it catered for our exact needs and of those of our guests ...everyone had such a good time and even so many of my guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. I have and will continue to recommend your venue for weddings to anyone who asks. Thank you for letting us hire your spectacular venue for the wedding of my dreams. it was perfect and I wouldn?t change a thing?. except maybe that I want to come back and do it all again!!!

Just what we wanted for our wedding
From the moment we viewed the green, we knew it was the one - even on a cold, damp day in November! It was the only place we visited & there was no need to look any further. The cottages are all beautifully decorated and fully equipped (even including travel cots for our nephews & nieces & games for the bigger kids), the house is a perfect central point and was ideal for the me (the bride ) and all the other girls to get ready. The living room was turned in to a beauty room with make & hair being done simultaneously! The grounds were lovely & lush by September and the weather was perfect for the weekend. Moira was great from the off, relaxed & friendly & very accommodating to us. It?s not often someone will let you dig up their turf to prepare a large lamb on a spit! Between them Moira and Zoe had all the recommendations & contacts for anything we could want: taxis, flowers, caterers, ice cream trikes, bands, the registrar, hay bale hire etc. They were there to help when we needed it, either in the office on site or at the end of the phone. It was really important to us to have friends and family together to celebrate our wedding for longer than just an afternoon. Getting married at The Green meant that we could have 32 people staying on sight with another 30 staying in local b&b?s. We were able to have the relaxed & informal wedding that we wanted with as much time with our friends & families as possible - It was perfect.

Perfect venue for our wedding
From the moment we first saw The Green we knew it would be the perfect venue for our wedding. It is set in such beautiful surroundings that you can?t help but be in awe. There is plenty of space for everyone, children and adults alike to explore and enjoy, yet intimate enough so that having all the friends and family around is perfect. Moira and Zoe were on hand to answer any questions every step of the way during the planning stage and throughout the whole event. The entertainment and catering they suggested proved to be a God send. Our guests have all said they agree with our own view, and thoroughly enjoyed the whole two days. We couldn?t have asked for any better. We so much wanted the outside wedding and the weather was kind to us on the day, however there was even a backup plan that would not have been a ?second best choice? had the rain made an appearance.
We thank you very much for making our special day so perfect.

Many Many Thanks
Dear Moira, Zo, Morwenna and The Green Team
Just a note to thank you all so very much for making my Daughter and new son in law?s day so special.
I can?t thank you enough for all you did to make the day go like clockwork.
You have a real knack of allowing people to make the place their own but at the same time keeping the lid on everything.
We had a wonderful day and all the guests in your accommodation were thrilled with it.
Many many thanks.

Dear Moira, Zo, Morwenna and the rest of the team,
A little late but we wanted to say a really massive thank you for everything you have done for us. The day went better than we could of expected and well that?s down to all of you. We couldn?t of wished for a more perfect day and we are so glad we picked The Green, its such a beautiful space and setting.
Apologies to Morwenna for having to light all those candles, that must have been more than mundane but it was all handled with such grace and professionalism.
Hope to see you all again one day, and thank you once again. All the best

Mike and I just wanted to say a great big thank you for helping us have a perfect wedding on the 6th. We could not have asked for a better day, and your fantastic service, amazing venue and great support where all part what made the day perfect for us.
We would like to pass on some of the lovely comments our family and friends had on the weekend. Many commented on the amazing views, beautiful finish, attention to detail, as well as how relaxed we all where in the amazing house and cottages. You really do think of everything - thank you.
We had a great weekend and would highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.
Thank you again for all the help and support you offered us while we where planning (and on the day of cause) it seems quite sad to say goodby to the people we have meet (and the people what helped us so much) during the planning of our special day.
