Port Waterhouse is a family run company offering a stunning venue for weddings and other special occasions aswell as moorings and other various boating packages.

About Port Waterhouse

A family business providing personal service

This unique waterfront location has been in the Waterhouse family for almost a century. Following extensive landscaping in the 1980s Port Waterhouse provides customised mooring services to boating enthusiasts in the Salcombe Estuary.

The business is now run as partnership between two generations, Crispin Waterhouse and his Aunt Isobel Waterhouse. Significant investment has taken place in recent years with the addition of new walk-on pontoon moorings and most recently, the exciting build of a new boat storage facility and Boathouse venue perfect for weddings and events.

Our Services

Hassle-free boating in a premier location

At Port Waterhouse we pride ourselves in offering a complete package to make your boating as relaxed and enjoyable as possible.

We have a range of facilities to suit your requirements and can build a custom package for you including mooring, car parking, dinghy storage, equipment storage, trailer storage and basic maintenance. We will do our best to accommodate any additional needs you may have. 

Moorings

We offer both seasonal and temporary moorings. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Weddings at Port Waterhouse

If you're looking for a waterside wedding venue in a stunning location but with the flexibility to bring your own style to the day, Port Waterhouse may be the place for you.

Our recently constructed Boathouse sits right on the waterfront and is licensed to hold wedding ceremonies for up to 100 guests.

The Boathouse can also accommodate up to 65 people for a sit-down wedding breakfast. For larger weddings our fabulous lawn overlooking the estuary offers ample space for a marquee and additional facilities. 

We work with a number of local suppliers of wedding services and can provide a list of preferred suppliers on request. Otherwise, it's up to you to bring together the people you want to make your wedding a day to remember.
