Pentillie Castle is a 17th-century family home, owned by the Coryton family, on the banks of the River Tamar, Cornwall. Originally built by Sir James Tillie (the land agent for the Coryton family) in 1698, the castle passed back into Coryton hands in the 1770’s.  Though not strictly a boutique hotel, Pentillie Castle has been modernised and renovated to become an award-winning, luxury B&B situated on the border between Devon and Cornwall. Pentillie is surrounded by 55 acres of woodland and gardens (voted one of the 5 best spring gardens by the Daily Telegraph) which really come alive in the spring and summer months. This 9 room Chic Retreat has won many awards for its lovely rooms and personal service including Gold at the Visit England Awards for Excellence in 2012. There is also a room for disabled access and Pentillie is becoming a popular choice for weddings given its idyllic romantic setting.


Pentillie's gardens are stunning and have been compared to the Lost Gardens of Heligan by Country House Rescue's Ruth Watson.  The Bathing Hut at Pentillie is a gem of a place, right by the water's edge and is the ideal private hideaway for intimate weddings, picnics, barbeques and afternoon teas.   Ideal for escapes all year round, Pentillie has sitting rooms and drawing rooms with open log fires, a games room with a pool table and table tennis, and flat screen TVs with DVD players and Sky Sports.  The outdoor solar heated swimming pool is open during the summer months.  Golf lovers will be pleased to know that St Mellion International Resort is nearby.  Children will love the aquarium in Plymouth City Centre which is only 20 minutes away.


Breakfast (served between 8.30-9.30) is an abundance of local produce including home-made jams, eggs and juices. Pentillie does have a drinks licence and an extensive wine list - for those wanting a tipple during the day there is an honesty bar in the drawing room.  Guests are invited to select their supper from a home-cooked menu, and pop it in the AGA to heat up when they are ready to eat. They then have the entirety of the castle to enjoy, dining in the kitchen or even on the terraces if the weather is glorious. Afternoon teas and picnics are also available.
