Of course! We welcome viewings of our site and discussions of your requirements and ideas. Please contact us to arrange a viewing. We also welcome visits from your suppliers, again by appointment.

This depends on the type/style of event and the marquee you have. The design you choose for inside your marquee also needs to be taken into account (e.g. if you have a dance floor, sitting/standing guests etc.). The maximum amount of people allowed on site is 120.

Little Oak Cornwall has an area for free parking onsite. We are conscious of the environment and the emissions impact, so request where possible, car sharing and/or encouraging guests to travel via minibus hire etc. to reduce their carbon footprint.

Please speak to us about camping and luxury camping options on our site. There are many hotels, bed and breakfasts, self-catering cottages and caravanning/camping sites in the local vicinity too.

You will need to apply for and purchase a Temporary Event Notice (TEN) from Cornwall Council should you wish to have any of the following licensable activities:

  • Plays or films
  • Indoor sporting events, boxing, wrestling
  • Live/recorded music
  • Performance of dance
  • Provision of late night refreshment (hot food and drink between 23:00-05:00)

Please allow plenty of time before your event to apply for and obtain your TEN. Little Oak Cornwall will need a copy of your TEN for your event to go ahead.

There are an abundance of suppliers for all aspects of events available. As Little Oak Cornwall is a blank canvas for you to put your stamp on, we welcome you to arrange your own choice of suppliers to suit your design. All suppliers are required to have Public Liability Insurance. We have a list of suppliers to help you on your way should you require*. Please just ask.

Yes, we offer our Petite Oak Weddings for up to 30 guests. For this we provide a 9m x 9m petal pole tent to hold your celebrations (subject to availability). Please contact us to discuss your requirements and for prices.

All events must finish by midnight. All suppliers will also be made aware of this finish time. Please ensure guests and attendees are made aware of this and have arranged the appropriate transportation methods required to travel back to their accommodation safely.

Little Oak Cornwall is not a licenced venue, therefore to be legally married, this would need to be completed before or after the event at a registry office or church. However we welcome blessings and celebrant services to take place at Little Oak Cornwall

If you would like to use confetti at your blessing or ‘wedding’ we request this is made of natural materials and is biodegradable to help the environment. Plastic confetti is not allowed.

For the safety of animals, the environment and risk of fire, we do not allow lanterns or balloons to be released into the air on or around the Little Oak Cornwall site.

We do not allow dogs on site, with the exception of assistance dogs, due to the health and safety of livestock, wildlife and other guests/attendees.

Little Oak Cornwall holds its own Public Liability Insurance. We request you take out your own event/wedding insurance for any eventualities. All suppliers are required to have their own Public Liability Insurance and must provide copies of this to Little Oak Cornwall prior to carrying out their services on our site.


*Please note, Little Oak Cornwall does not accept any responsibility for the products, services, content or personal/professional opinions/mannerisms of any suppliers listed. The suppliers list is a guide for clients to point them in the direction of what services may be available for their event and for clients to do their own research and decision making on these.
