Magical castle set in the dreamiest of landscapes. Every element of our stay was wonderful from our first glimpse of the castle from the drive, to the wonderful walks, swims and dining. Thoughtful touches all the way through to make our stay even more exceptional. Would book again in a heartbeat

We all loved our bedrooms, which were beautifully furnished, the small grandchildren spent much time in the games room, allowing the grown-ups to enjoy playing the piano, or relaxing in the various sitting rooms. We enjoyed walks in the evening, particularly down to the river Tamar, and loved playing boules and other games. All the staff were very pleasant, and we loved the history of the house, and were delighted to meet the family who owned it. Lady E

We had our wedding at Pentillie Castle at the beginning of February and we stayed there two nights. The Dewhurst Suite was fabulous - and we couldn't have asked for more in terms of the size of the space and comfort. The staff at Pentillie were wonderful and went to great efforts to make sure we had the wedding we wanted and everything we needed. I can't fault them. The Castle grounds are fantastic and the wedding venue (the bathing hut) was so romantic. We had dinner in the restaurant and breakfast - and the food was great. Pentillie Castle is an elegant setting for any wedding or country escape!

The drive is stunning but its so close to Plymouth. It feels a million miles away from anywhere. Linda checked us in and was very friendly and knowledgeable. We were told to treat it like our own home which was s welcoming. We stayed in the Spencer which was huge! The bed was over sized and so comfortable I can honestly say it was one of the best nights sleep ever. Fantastic water pressure in the bathroom. The bathrooms was really big as well with such fluffy towels. We didn't get to walk around the gardens which was a shame. We'll definitely be back. Views at Breakfast were amazing - who knew they were there?! Breakfast was fabulous too recommend the eggs benedict! Should have stayed for a second night but will definitely be back. Thank you all for a wonderful stay!
