Pentillie Castle is every bit as fabulous as its name suggests! It’s a picture-perfect, fairytale kind of a place; a stylishly renovated 17th century castle that sits pretty in an idyllic setting on the banks of the River Tamar.
It’s undoubtedly grand and the ultimate in luxury B&B, but it’s also the cosy and welcoming home of the Coryton family, who, with the support of their friendly team of staff, go out of their way to create a relaxed environment. Their hard work paid off when they took the top award – Gold – in the B&B/Guest Accommodation category at the South West Tourism Awards 2014.
The castle forms part of a beautiful and historic country estate, and is surrounded by 55 acres of woodland. Every room affords guests stunning views across the Tamar Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), to Dartmoor.
As well as sensitively modernising the castle in 2009, the Coryton family have put a huge amount of effort into restoring its beautiful gardens, which are now a visitor attraction in their own right. They’ve been featured in a Daily Telegraph article on the five Best Spring Gardens, as well as being likened to Cornwall’s famous Lost Gardens of Heligan, which are not far away.
St. Mellion’s famous golf course is nearby, and Cornwall’s north and south coasts are within easy reach, as is the Eden Project and Bodmin Moor. Plymouth is just 20 minutes away by car.
Pentillie Castle hosts a wide variety of events throughout the year, including outdoor theatre, garden tours and corporate days, and is also a licensed wedding venue. It’s also possible to arrange to have exclusive use of the castle.
The castle’s tasteful interior complements, rather than overshadows, its period features and rich history. The Coryton family’s antiques and original artworks have been combined with modern home comforts to create a relaxed, contemporary feel.
As well as having the beautiful grounds to explore, guests can make use of the outdoor swimming pool in the walled garden during the summer months. In the winter, the roaring open fires in the large, comfortable drawing room and the smaller sitting room are the perfect place to relax after exploring the countryside. There’s also a games room with a pool table, table tennis, board games and a DVD collection, as well as an honesty bar. Dogs are welcome to sleep in the Boot Room and can be walked in the grounds on their leads. Pentillie Castle even has a charging point for electric vehicles.
The nine guest bedrooms all have super king sized-beds, although most can be turned into twins if preferred. The Coryton family are huge fans of the toiletries from St.Kitts Herbery in North Cornwall, which are provided in the en suite bathrooms. There is disabled access to the Warren bedroom on the ground floor.
Room rates range from £125 to £230 per night.
The entire property can be rented on a self-catering or fully catered basis for those who’d like to get away with a larger group of family and friends, or for weddings. Contact the owners to discuss your requirements.
Breakfast is usually served between 8.30am and 9.30am, and is made using local produce, including homemade jams and apple juice.
A three-course evening meal, priced at £30 per person, is available when more than six guests are staying in the castle. Ask about this option at the time of booking, and let your hosts known about any dietary requirements, or likes and dislikes.
