One of the properties listed on, the beautiful Pentillie Castle has been featured in the Sky1’s drama series ‘Delicious’, as the Penrose Hotel. The series, starring Dawn French, Emilia Fox and Iain Glen, is shot in and around picturesque South East Cornwall, namely the village of Calstock and the Tamar Valley. The series is back for a second season and airs on Sky1 on 29th December.

Dawn French was quoted as saying that “Originally it was set by the sea, but that’s been done by Poldark and Doc Martin, so we did it inland. I love the sea, I live by the sea, and it’s so beautiful. But we are showing another side of the place. We filmed in all sorts of beautiful areas like the Port Eliot estate and Pentillie Castle.”Plymouth Herald

The owner of Pentillie Castle, Sammie Coryton, who is thrilled with the series: “It was just so fascinating to watch all the on set action once again and see how the Castle was transformed! We feel so incredibly proud that Pentillie Castle will feature once again in a second series of Delicious as The Penrose Hotel and showcase our beautiful corner of Cornwall to Sky One’s viewers”.

Sammie has also said: “Delicious’s production team took full advantage of the terraced gardens, woodland valleys and river frontage, and have used every nook and cranny through which to develop the storyline. Not only have they kept away from the Cornish seascape, but the production is filmed almost entirely in South East Cornwall – bringing attention to the wonderful Tamar Valley.”

If you’re interested in staying at Pentillie Castle, don’t hesitate to contact the owner directly via the property page here.

Don’t forget to tune in to Sky1 on the 29th December to catch the first episode of Season 2.
