It is like staying in a good friend's country house, who have just popped out for the day. Could have stayed for a month! Would need that time to explore the gardens and estate and make the most of the lounge,open fires and bar!

What stands out for me the most after my stay at Pentillie Castle, is the perfect balance they have achieved between feeling you are in a stately home yet without any pretension. There is a real feeling of grandeur, yet you are made to feel so at home, mainly due to the amazing staff. We stayed at Pentillie for 1... More

Pentilley Castle is gorgeous, don't just take my word for it, stay in one of the gorgeous rooms, wonder around the stunning grounds, devour the amazing local food and drink. This privately owned estate is gorgeous, despite its grandure, you are still made to feel at home. We were lucky enough to come here to celebrate our friends 70th birthday... More

We were part of a classic car tour which stayed here in early July. The Castle experience is not like a hotel, but being a house guest. The house and grounds are superb, with a lot of walks you can do without leaving the estate, including mid 17th century buildings and the river Tamar. This is not your usual hotel,... More

My Husband and I got married here a week ago today and I have to say the staff at Pentillie were amazing in every way.

We booked a weekend at Pentillie Castle only knowing it was near Cotehele House (National Trust) which it self is in a lovely part of Cornwall. The Castle or large house to be more accurate is just divine from the moment you step inside. The young lady who greeted us was charming and helpful in fact all the staff made... More

Pentillie exceeded our expectations at every turn. We were there for two nights but could have stayed for a month. The interiors on the first floor are beautifully designed and furnished. There are two public rooms -- a living room and a morning room -- available for guest use, with an honesty bar available. The dining room is also furnished... More

We enjoyed a private dinner party, excellent food, service and ambiance on 2nd June. From the moment we arrived Jack made us feel at home. We stayed overnight in the best room overlooking the lovely gardens towards the river. So peaceful ! All the staff made us very welcome. The breakfast was delicious . Highly recommended.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Built in the 17th century, Pentillie Castle is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the Cornish banks of the River Tamar. Set on an estate that spans almost 2000 acres, the Castle offers luxurious B&B accommodation as well as exclusive hire for groups. All 9 bedrooms are en-suite (some with Victorian style roll-top baths!) offering views over the River Tamar and surrounding woodland. Relax in the Drawing Room where you can help yourself to a drink (or two!) from the honesty bar, sit out on the terrace or enjoy yourself in the Games Room. 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
