Pentillie Castle, Saltash

Hire your own private 5* castle on the beautiful Cornish banks of the River Tamar, perfect for weddings or large party stays.

Weekend Escapes

Pentillie Castle is an impressive country house, available to exclusively hire for bespoke weddings, special celebrations, retreats and memorable holidays. Steeped in 300 years of history, this beautiful house is nestled within a 1,500 acre private estate and boasts extensive mature gardens bordering the River Tamar.

Choose from 11 individually styled bedrooms with stunning waterside and garden views: the Castle can accommodate up to 22 staying guests plus up to four little ones on additional beds/cots. Most bedrooms can be twinned, three are dog friendly and there is also a ground floor bedroom with a wet room facility and disabled friendly access.

Guests have the exclusive use of the farmhouse style AGA Kitchen on a self-catering basis (although catering can be organised additionally), relax by the outdoor solar heated swimming pool with a good read, or, if you stay in winter, hunker down after dark playing after dinner games in front of the open log fire in the Castle Drawing Room. For the little kids (and big kids), there is a dedicated games room in the cellar with a widescreen smart TV, billiards, table tennis and a darts board.

Borrow a pair of wellies from the Castle Boot Room to explore the 55-acres of woodland gardens. With paths through the Lime Avenue and American Gardens to Sir James Tillie’s mysterious mausoleum and down to the river quay to the picturesque Bathing Hut, you can walk to your heart’s content without ever leaving the estate, and with exclusive hire, you’ll not meet anyone else either. Should you wish to venture further afield, being on the Cornwall /Devon border means you’re in easy reach of the beaches of both counties as well as the ocean town of Plymouth and Cornwall’s fishing harbours and attractions.

Pentillie also offers a spectacular and intimate setting to marry. With licensed ceremony locations both indoor and outdoor (including the Bathing Hut), it is the perfect place for a romantic elopement or a small gathering for up to 50 (with 50 additional evening guests). For a larger celebration, there are a number of incredible and inspirational spaces for a marquee.
