Life is gradually beginning to return to normal - Hurrah! Soon we will be able to offer viewings again in person in the meantime though, we are still able to showcase our beautiful castle through virtual tours. We have built up a bit of virtual tour experience over the past few months meaning that what you see is incredibly accurate! A staggering amount of couples have actually booked without viewing in person! If you would like to find out more or have your wedding questions answered, please do drop me a line or email. I would love to hear from you! Speak to you soon, Chrissie

Pentillie Castle...
Pentillie Castle and Estate are beautifully kept and the team are fantastic at what they do. My partner and I wanted a few different things to happen during our wedding ceremony and reception drinks and the team were open to other possibilities and making it happen for us. They went out of their way on the day and made sure it was flawless for us. Staying for the whole weekend made us feel extremely relaxed.

Pentille Castle is set in the most stunning location on the river Tamar. This opened up all kinds of possibilities for our day to ensure it was tailored to us. We chose the Bathing Hut which is the most glamorously quaint and unique venue we had seen right on the river. Regan was amazing at helping us with our options and she supported us right the way through and made sure she was there the day of our wedding. Fairytale venue, dedicated staff.
