On the Cornish banks of the Tamar River, which divides Cornwall from Devon, lies the breathtaking country estate of Pentillie Castle. Naturally, this restored Georgian mansion offers breathtaking views, set within 55 acres of woodland garden. If you're looking for a unique retreat in a traditional country house with all the modern touches, this boutique bed and breakfast is the perfect marriage of luxury comfort and rural tranquility.



The vast countryside surrounding the hotel is beautiful. Pentillie is close to both Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor, and perfect for getting out in the fresh air.
