We stayed one night at Pentillie in July 2014 and I can't recommend it enough. The house and grounds are lovely, we had picnic and watched a play in the gardens. After a lovely sleep in a big comfy bed and a cracking breakfast we ambled around the gardens to enjoy the views and tranquil countryside accompanied by a very... More

Beautifully restored and a wonderful place to take in the countryside. Very friendly people and dogs! The Aga suppers taken outside on the terrace were wonderful. Lots of space to explore and plenty of different rooms to sit in so felt like we had the whole place to ourselves at times.

I spent a night here this week and thought that it was a wonderful setting, beautiful building (inside and out) and the staff were all lovely. I stayed on the ground floor and found the room rather small for the price. There wasn't much room around the bed and there was no real sitting area. There was no wardrobe, just... More

Dear JoeGWD, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Pentillie Castle. We're sorry to hear that your room was not to your satisfaction.

The night my wife and I spent at Pentillie Castle was a birthday present for from our daughter and as the title suggests it was a marvellous experience. The room was excellent with all of the facilities provided to a very high standard indeed; the view from the windows of the Tillie Room over the woods to the River Tamar... More

Pentillie just continues to exceed our expectations every time we visit. Dean and Sally did their usual sterling job in welcoming us and making us feel at home (Sally, your breakfast today was a triumph!) . The grounds are still exquisite - even in the rain! It was lovely to see Sammie, Marc and Charlie - thanks for popping over,... More

Our family went on a road trip in South West England for one week. We visited at a lots of interesting places, but the absolute best stop was at Pentillie Castle. Everything with Pentillie Castle is fantastic. Everything from the rooms (we stayed in two rooms, Parker and Victor, which was absolutely gorgeous) to the warm welcome when we arrived.... More

We spent two days in Pentillie Castle and would have loved to stay longer. Lovely service, wonderful rooms (I never had such a huge bathroom before...), wonderful gardens and setting. The diner in the Castle kitchen with the meal ordered before (Pie, Quiche, fresh salads and desert) was amazing, an experience I would not want to miss!! We will definitely... More

Dear Manuela_Bern, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Pentillie. I will pass on your kind feedback to Sally and Andrea in the kitchen. They will be pleased to hear that you enjoyed their homecooked supper. Tillie has the most wonderful bathroom with river views and clawed-foot bath doesn't it! It's certainly my most favourite bedroom... More

While we have not stayed in Pentillie, we have been to several of Pentillie's events.Yesterday we attended another wonderful outdoor theatre evening. The garden was looking beautiful and the food laid on was superb and good value. The hosts were there to greet us when we arrived and to say goodbye when we left and of course the play (Romeo...

Dear Railholiday, Wow! Thank you, what a review! You must come to our final outdoor theatre of the year, Robin Hood on 28th August, if you can. And of course stay for B&B - even if you live locally, it's a good short break away from home. Andrea and Sally will be whipping up a delicious Lasagne and some sweet... More

We had only one night here unfortunately. I will find a way to get back here for a few days. The house itself was beautiful and immaculate but comfortable. the bedroom and bathrooms were superb. Grounds lovely. Service exceptional. No evening meals but we were recommended a local pub which provided a great meal. The location is peaceful and beautiful... More

Dear Gayle G, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Pentillie. We're glad that you had a lovely stay here, albeit a short one (!), but a good excuse to come back again and stay for longer. We're sorry that you weren't able to dine in. Our homemade suppers are available to pre-order on most evenings.... More

There is also a solar-heated outdoor swimming pool (open Apr-Sept). There are plenty of activities to enjoy in the local area, from fishing, cycling, hiking and golf to zip lining through the trees. Plymouth is only a 20 minute drive away. ... more   less
