The Vean along with a number of other sites on the Caerhays Estate offer Superb Wedding Venues.
The interior of The Vean has been restored and furnished as an elegant period Georgian country house with the addition of the most modern heating and plumbing systems designed to provide the highest standards of luxury and comfort. The kitchen is designed both for family and for semi-commercial use.
The Drawing Room
This is a light, elegant but comfortable room with access to the verandah. The walls are painted in 'Cornish Clay', a soft grey / green and the curtains are pale gold silk hung from beautifully hand painted poles. It is furnished with Georgian period pieces including wing chairs, card table and corner cupboard. There are two sofas which have been specially made for the drawing room and covered in Zoffany fabric. The lighting is created by antique table and standard lamps with a huge crystal chandelier taking centre stage. The open fire will be lit during the autumn and winter months.
The Dining Room
This room leads on to the Drawing Room and is decorated in a similar colour scheme. The handmade mahogany, Chippendale style dining table and ladder back chairs have been specially commissioned for The Vean and seat up to 20 guests. The Georgian style chairs are upholstered in green and gold. There is a beautiful period corner cupboard for drinks and glasses and a serpentine side table between the windows. The walls are hung with carefully chosen portraits and mirrors.
The Sitting Room
This room is cosy and informal - a place to sit and relax, read a book, watch television or play cards. The walls are painted a deep green and the original tub sofa is covered in a rich gold and green fabric. There is a large screen television including sky subscription which can also be used to project videos and DVD's to give a cinema effect. This room also serves as a children's playroom with a cupboard full of games and toys.
This room has been thoughtfully designed to reflect the simple early Eighteenth century style but at the same time containing the very latest quality kitchen appliances and equipment. It is built to a commercial standard but still retains a domestic feel with a wonderful 18 century butler's cupboard and specially commissioned cherry wood table and chairs for less formal dining.
The eight bedrooms have been individually designed in the late Georgian style, each one unique, with a character of its own. They have beautifully interlined curtains, antique mirrors, desks or dressing tables all carefully chosen. The rooms are named after farmhouses on the Caerhays Estate and over the years new rhododendron hybrids bred in the Castle gardens have also been given these names. The bedrooms will be hung with pictures of both the farmhouse and the rhododendron they are named after. These include Penvose, Nancor, Polgrain, Treluckey on the first floor and Rosevallon, Treberrick, Penvergate and Trevennen on the second floor. All the bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms with limestone floors, simple but elegant fixtures and fittings and luxurious bath towels.
