Full information

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.

The Castle forms part of a beautiful and historic country estate, and is surrounded by 55 acres of woodland. Every room afford 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, and is also a licensed wedding venue.

For weddings:

17th Century Pentillie Castle is set within a 2,000 acre private estate on the Devon and Cornwall border. With breathtaking views across the River Tamar and to Dartmoor, this unique venue can be hired exclusively for your ceremony and reception ensuring your day is just that, yours!

Romance, luxury and elegance…Say ‘I do’ in the wildly romantic riverside Bathing Hut, or outside under the beautiful Loggia on the South Terrace with far-reaching views to Dartmoor. For a more intimate ceremony, why not marry your beau in the Pavilion amidst the sweet scented wisteria with your nearest and dearest looking on.

Take some time to enjoy your first moments as newlyweds by exploring the gardens and woodlands. Capture these unforgettable moments together with photos in the Lime Avenue and endless stunning locations.

Meanwhile your guests can be enjoying a glass of fizz (or our very own Pentillie Apple Juice for the little ones or those who are driving!) and delicious canapés on the terrace. Sit down to your bespoke wedding breakfast menu in the elegant Dining Room which will later be transformed into an open dance floor so you and your guests can dance the night away to your favourite songs.

Don’t forget that Pentillie will be yours exclusively for your wedding weekend, so you and your guests can unwind in the award-winning luxury en-suite bedrooms.

During the summer, take advantage of a morning swim in their outdoor heated swimming pool, and in the winter curl up by the roaring log fire with a glass of ‘Winter Pimms’ and good company!

However you envisage your special day, their dedicated Wedding Co-ordinator will be on hand to help you arrange as much or as little of your wedding as you like.
