Perfect wedding venue!

We have just had our wedding reception at Pentillie Castle, and it truly was the most wonderful day! From the moment we met, Pentillie's wedding co-ordinator Chrissie went above and beyond to make our dreams come true. She was always so friendly and happy to chat over even the smallest details, was incredibly helpful with all of our questions, and made every aspect of planning our Pentillie wedding into a really special and personal experience.
We were drawn to Pentillie's beautiful grounds and outdoor spaces which all lend themselves to stunning photo opportunities, but we were equally impressed by the indoor areas, which are beautifully decorated and we and all of our guests greatly enjoyed our time there. Our guests all said how much they loved their sytlish and elegant bedrooms and the amazing breakfast the next morning too.
On the day, nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff. Stephen, Linda and all of the team were fantastic, working behind the scenes, looking after our guests and keeping the day running smoothly.
Pentillie is a magical place for a wedding and we would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a truly special venue. We could not have chosen a more perfect place to celebrate our special day!
Thank you all again for everything, we will always remember how you all helped make our dreams a reality.

Romantic, Idyllic Elopment

We chose to have our elopement wedding at 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 building they call the "Bathing Hut". It has a large window at one end looking onto the Tamar and throughout the ceremony the sun streamed in. All we could see was the river and the glorious sunshine. They lit a fire in the fireplace for us and we were plenty warm enough despite the season. After the ceremony we had photos taken around the grounds of the castle which are absolutely stunning. Everyone we've showed the photos to has admired the setting. The staff at Pentillie are brilliant. They made it effortless for us to organise our wedding and they made sure everything ran seamlessly on the day. I cannot recommend this venue highly enough.

The best day ever

The title says it all. Words can’t express how much we and all our guests enjoyed the day. We’ve been inundated with messages of thanks and expressions of gratitude for their invites. You are a superb wedding co- ordinator. The atmosphere was amazing, food delicious, weather so kind to us and the Castle is even more beautiful than we remembered it. A truly magical weekend”

We owe you many thanks for helping us making our own wedding the best we've even attended. The setting is beautiful, the rain didn't hurt a bit and every single guest seemed to be as happy as we were. We'd also like to express our thanks to all Pentillie staff who helped before and during the weekend, everything was a very smooth operation.
We plan to come back for many anniversaries ...
