The outdoor, Solar power heated swimming pool is open from April until September, and as if this isn t enough, the gardens, recently compared to those of the Lost Gardens of Heligan by Channel 4 s Ruth Watson, are yours to explore. Awarded a Gold award for B&B/Guest Accommodation at the Visit England Awards for Excellence 2012, Pentillie is not just a luxury place to stay but is also imbibed with history. Originally built in 1698 when James Tillie, a flamboyant businessman, built his grand home on the Cornish bank of the River Tamar and erected a statue of himself outside. In 1809, the family had more money to play with, and commissioned 18th Century architect William Wilkins, renowned for his Gothic flair, to transform Pentillie into a castle. However, by 1968, dated amenities and inheritance taxes led to the demolition of three wings, and the scaling down of this tremendous property to its current size and layout . Pentillie Castle is also available for exclusive hire, corporate meetings and conferences.
