Raise a glass
Whether the last dance is over or has yet to begin, celebrate the occasion at the Rod and Line inn.
For lovers and guests celebrating a happy ever after, the Rod and Line – a 16th century inn nestling in the tiny village of Tideford – provides an idyllic venue for pre or post-wedding celebrations. It’s an exquisite place to stay too, having a wealth of secret boutique rooms, separate from the pub itself, all of which are beautifully decorated. Some have gorgeous feature baths; all boast luxury linen and Cornish organic toiletries.
Inside the inn, you’ll find a quintessential ‘old world’ bar with an unrivalled atmosphere. It’s the perfect spot for sharing wedding stories over a glass of wine or ale, before tasting some of the Rod and Line’s famous, locally sourced and freshly prepared food.
For those of you who’ve planned a winter wedding, you can relax in front of the crackling open fire; in the summer, sip champagne in the sun with your loved ones on the inn’s south-facing patio.
In addition to all of this, the Rod and Line also boasts a standalone five-bedroom town house, complete with its own garden and patio. This is perfect for friends celebrating your nuptials, and the best part is that it’s dog friendly!
Situated just a ten-minute drive from the beguilingly beautiful south coast of Cornwall, and in close proximity to the grand romantic estates of Pentilly, Boconnoc and St Germans, the Rod and Line is also well placed for easy access to the A38, which makes day trips around Cornwall’s innumerable attractions a simple matter of hopping in the car. In short, it’s the perfect base for both pre and post-wedding celebrations, but be warned: in a county where it is impossible not to lose your heart, you may well find yourselves celebrating more than one happy ever after.
