Luxury castle sleeping up to 20 with a heated outdoor pool, for celebrations and special gatherings near Saltash

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Pentillie Castle and Estate, Saltash, Cornwall, sleeps 15-20 in 10 bedrooms.

Situated in the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Pentillie Castle is set in more than 500 acres of beautiful park and woodlands. It is a stunning location available to hire exclusively for weddings, a family get together, anniversary celebrations, corporate entertaining, or team building exercises. The property is completely secret - you can only see it from the River Tamar.

Renovated to a luxury 5 star venue in 2009, Pentillie Castle is perfectly situated for trips to the gardens of Cornwall - Lost Gardens of Heligan, the Eden Project to name but two, and is also within easy striking distance of both Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor. Plymouth's Theatre Royal and National Aquarium are also nearby.

Explore the gardens and surrounding woodland over the course of a 3 night stay, and enjoy the experience of your very own large country castle. Explore the idyllic woodland paths lined with snowdrops or bluebells down to the river and across fields, watch out for deer, buzzards and our resident peacocks.

There is plenty for those with a historical bent - Sir James Tillie still resides in his Mausoleum at the top of the property looking out over the river (his vault was discovered in spring 2013!!), and there are plenty of secrets to be discovered on walks through the American Gardens, full of camellias and rhododendrons during spring and early summer. Autumn does not disappoint either, when the woods become a riot of colour.

Exclusive hire includes private use of the Castle and gardens, linen, heating, electricity (for up to 20 adults). Additional catering, e.g. breakfast, house keeping, self-serve supper, 3-course dinner with canapés, is available for a supplement. Well behaved dogs welcome to stay in the boot room (heated with kitchen adjacent) but not in the Castle or guest bedrooms.

Christmas and New Year self-catered only.

*Twin attic bedroom with private shower room also available.

No need to bring wine! Order from our excellent wine list; compiled by local Master of Wine, Charles Steevenson. It reflects the style of Pentillie Castle - classic, but a little quirky!
