Thank you Pentille for a wonderful birthday dinner. Pentillie Castle is a rare thing: wonderfully comfortable and welcoming, designed with style and beautifully finished, a fascinating history and estate to discover, enthusiastic professional unfussy staff and the whole place does "not stuffy" with a capital N.

Before my upcoming wedding at Pentillie my fiance and I stayed a night and were the only ones there - we literally had a castle to ourselves! The rooms are beautiful - modern and comfortable with comfy big beds, rain showers and roll topped baths. The rooms have a small TV (that would be my only comment (the TV is... More

Lovely location, friendly and down to earth in fabulous surroundings. I stayed as I was at a business function in Plymouth and wanted to avoid the drive home. Wonderful breakfast, all locally sourced followed by lovely walk in the grounds.

We stayed as two couples in this beautiful estate just outside Plymouth. The hosts were lovely, the rooms beautifully comfortable with bathrooms to die for! The many sitting rooms were inviting with open fires and honour bars. The house was handed over to the guests in the evening so we felt like it was our own house party! A simple... More
