Read the papers by an open fire in the morning room by the pretty southern terrace, while children have fun in the cellar basement games room featuring a pool table, table football, darts and a Smart TV. Slumber falls easily in the stylish sumptuous bedrooms which include a spacious en-suite ground floor bedroom, while the first floor boasts eight gorgeous en-suites. The castellated turrets on the second floor house two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. There are also five separate WCs on the ground floor, and stylish features throughout the property including roll-top baths, beautiful wall art, even a four-poster bed. Outside, you’ll find spacious woodland gardens and grounds – enjoy a romantic walk through Lime Avenue or past the orchard blossoms. Take a refreshing dip in the pool after a busy day of adventures; soak up the breathtaking views from the castle terraces; or enjoy croquet on the lawn.

We had a WONDERFUL time at Pentillie. The venue is first class: beautiful, elegant, comfortable (oh the beds!), spotlessly clean & extraordinarily well-equipped. The gardens & walks are glorious. The staff are courteous yet friendly - just right. Special mention must be made of the willingness to accommodate guests with limited mobility: my brotherRead more in law is in advanced stages of progressive MS & was able to enjoy the weekend along with the rest of us. Our dog was in Heaven too! Glorious! Hide
