About Pentillie Castle

Sitting in the heart of a privately owned 1,500-acre Cornish estate on the beautiful banks of the River Tamar, Pentillie Castle is a breathtaking spot for a wedding. The enchanting, outstretched views of the Tamar Valley, extensive mature gardens, and secluded setting provide a spectacular backdrop to celebrate your wedding. Not forgetting of course, the chance to have your magical day in a Cornish castle!

Pentillie's extensive grounds mean that you have a wide variety of indoor and outdoor options when it comes to ceremony locations. There's always the Castle's grand interior for example, but you may choose to say your vows in the romantic wisteria-clad Pavilion, the Castle Loggia, or the intimate riverside Bathing Hut. Other outdoor locations include the Stone Circle at the highest point of Pentillie's grounds, with the estate's peacocks in the Walled Kitchen Garden, or amid blooming rhododendrons and bluebells of the American Garden.

Though grand in the name, the Castle is incredibly intimate by nature, offering the perfect venue for a romantic elopement or a small gathering for up to 60 (with up to 40 additional evening guests). For a larger celebration of up to 250 guests there are a number of large lawns and spaces for a marquee. Meanwhile, Pentillie works with a carefully curated selection of caterers and focuses heavily on the quality local produce of the West Country to make sure that all the food served at your wedding is of the highest quality.

Whether it's giant board games on the lawn, arriving at your own wedding ceremony by helicopter or a wedding menu cooked by a Michelin-starred chef, Pentillie is the ultimate blank canvas that allows you to tailor the wedding of your dreams.

Testimonials For Pentillie Castle

The perfect day!SEPTEMBER, 2022

We were lucky enough to tie the knot at Pentillie this September. We had a perfect day, and extended weekend with close family and friends. Chrissie, Steven and the whole team couldn't have done more throughout to make sure everything went smoothly and we didn't have to think or want for anything. The house itself is beautifully restored and the extensive grounds will take you more than a weekend to explore. The bravest amongst us even managed a dip in the Tamar.  We hope to be back one day! So many special memories for our wedding. Thank you! We wish we could bottle them up!

Magic wedding fairies!OCTOBER, 2021

Pentillie is a beautiful venue in a fantastic setting which along with the ability to have our closest friends & family stay with us for the entire weekend is what made it stand out. The staff however are what make it special. Chrissie & Stephen anticipated our every need on the day. If we wanted something, it was already done. They were like magic wedding fairies making sure that we didn't have to think about a thing and that everything ran perfectly. I cannot overstate how fantastic they were!

We couldn't imagine anything more perfect!JUNE, 2021

Having had to cancel our wedding abroad, we never thought we would find somewhere more amazing than what we had originally planned. Our micro wedding at Pentillie was exactly what we wanted. The staff were incredible, not only did we feel at home with our small party of guests but we also felt extremely spoiled by the team the whole weekend. Nothing was too much trouble and we only had to think of something and it was arranged without hassle. We couldn't imagine anything more perfect.

Unspoilt natural beauty!FEBRUARY, 2020

We were surprised by how many people said that we did the very best thing by eloping - we had the day we wanted without worrying about anyone else, and it looked absolutely fabulous. We chose Pentillie for its unspoilt natural beauty - and we were not disappointed with our big day! Despite it being February, the weather was glorious. We married in the riverside Bathing Hut which has a large window looking onto the River Tamar, and throughout the ceremony the sun streamed in - all we could see was the river and the glorious sunshine. After the ceremony, we had photos taken around the grounds. Everyone we've showed the photos to has admired the setting, with many asking when they can visit themselves.
