Pentillie Castle sits in the heart of a large private family-owned estate, on the Cornish Banks of the River Tamar. Ideally situated on the borders of Cornwall and Devon, Pentillie provides the perfect country home from home for your holiday, with Plymouth City Centre, south-coast sandy beaches and Dartmoor National Park all within a short drive.
The Castle can accommodate up to 22 adults and up to 4 children throughout its 9 luxury ensuite bedrooms and two additional bedrooms in the castellated turrets. All first-floor rooms have beautiful far-reaching views across the Tamar Valley or of the historical estate gardens. One bedroom is located on the ground floor with a wet room facility to enable disabled access, three rooms are dog friendly, and most can be twinned upon request.
Creating the homely atmosphere, guests have the exclusive use of the Castle and its extensive facilities, including the large farmhouse style AGA kitchen, the elegant dining room, and the outdoor solar-heated swimming pool (open April – September). For the little kids (and big kids) there is a dedicated games room in the cellar with a widescreen smart TV, billiards, table tennis and a darts board.
Whilst staying at Pentillie, guests are welcome to borrow a pair of wellies from the Castle boot room to explore the 55-acres of woodland gardens. There are many spectacular walks around the estate, including paths through the Lime Avenue and American Gardens, to Sir James Tillie's mysterious mausoleum and down to the river quay to the picturesque Bathing Hut. Hiring the castle exclusively ensures that you will be the only guests at the castle during your stay.
