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.
Introducing 'The Boathouse' - a brand new events venue on the Salcombe Estuary!
Completed in 2018, The Boathouse is available to hire for private parties, weddings and other events. And we now have a license for civil ceremonies for up to 100 guests!
Nestled into the land and sitting right on the waters edge, The Boathouse enjoys enviable views across the estuary to Salcombe.
This is arguably one of the best events venues for hire in the South Hams.
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.
Bar Opening Times
Our bar is open to the public on Friday & Saturday evenings, (5pm - 9pm) throughout the school holidays*.
If you are passing by boat and see our Gin pennant flying from the balcony, then the bar is open! Come on up!
Alternatively, please call Crispin on 07977 150 527 for more information on the bar.
We look forward to seeing you there!
