This magnificent Castle, opened in 2009 after extensive renovation, now offers luxury B&B in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the banks of the River Tamar. The Pentillie Estate comprises a land area of almost 2000 acres, lining the Cornish bank of the River Tamar for almost two miles. The gardens and grounds have changed little since Humphrey Repton designed them, and there are many interesting features including lovely woodland walks down to the river.
Built in 1698, Pentillie Castle’s award-winning accommodation is simply glorious. Far from being hotel-like, the bedrooms retain the air of luxurious guest rooms of a grand private residence – which, of course, is exactly what it is. The period rooms are spacious, fresh and bright with elegant antique furnishings and traditional English fabrics. The bathrooms are delightful with free-standing baths, decorative fireplaces and panoramic views. Enjoy an afternoon tea in the cosy Drawing Room or on the terraces, or take a picnic lunch with you while exploring the region. Delicious home-made DIY suppers are also available to enjoy in the farmhouse style kitchen, Dining Room or on the terraces.
Only 20 minutes from Plymouth and within easy striking distance of Dartmoor, this is a marvellous location in which to indulge yourself. Here you are close to the north and south coasts of Cornwall, the championship golf courses of St. Mellion International resort, and the wilderness of both Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor. There are few places in Britain as romantic and magical as Pentillie.
