Frequently Asked Questions

Little Oak Cornwall is available for hire between 1st May and 30th September each year. We are an exclusive venue, so bookings are limited. Please contact us to discuss and secure your date.

We're a blank canvas and provide only the field spaces so you can then hire a marquee/tipi/tent etc. from a supplier of your choice. Caterers, entertainment and any other services you wish to have will need to be arranged by you to suit your requirements.

Our meadow has access to mains electricity, water for catering and own own toilets, saving you the time and process of arranging these.

To confirm your booking and secure your date, we require a 25% non-refundable deposit. We also ask for a music/damages deposit payable with the final balance, which will be returned to you 14 days after your event if the terms and conditions are met. Our full terms and conditions will be sent to you for your reference and agreement.

Please contact us for up to date prices and special offers for the hiring of the Little Oak Cornwall site.

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 150.

Little Oak Cornwall has an area for free parking onsite. We're conscious of the environment and 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 caravan/camping sites in the local vicinity too.

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

  • Plays or films

  • 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.

Yes of course. All loud live music, entertainment and DJ sets must finish by 11pm, with acoustic music or a silent disco welcome until the event finishes at 12am.

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, fireworks or balloons to be released into the air on or around the Little Oak Cornwall site.

Yes, we're dog friendly as long as all dog mess is picked up and disposed of correctly. We also ask for all dogs to be kept an eye on at all times for the dog's own safety and for wildlife and other attendees on the site.

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.

A full copy of our terms and conditions will be provided to you and is available upon request.
