Pentillie Castle for a magnificent wedding venue

Pentillie Castle

Pentillie Castle was featured on Channel 4′s Country House Rescue last night (13/01/09) and looks like it’s set to become one of the most beautiful wedding venues in Cornwall.  As I watched the show I was struck by the huge task the Coryton’s had taken on and how much they were putting their heart and souls into the renovation.  Unfortunately the programme didn’t show us what stage the renovation is in now and I was left wondering if they would be successful in bringing the castle up to a standard that would make weddings a private hire viable.  However it looks as if weddings have indeed been hosted there and according to the review on the website left by a groom, they did good!  The renovation is still ongoing but will be finished in May 2009 when there will be nine luxury en-suite bedrooms, a swimming pool and four possible wedding ceremony locations.

    Thanks for this lovely review. We are going great guns with the renovation… while still some way to go, we are on budget and time for it to be complete in early May. This gives us a few weeks to tide over any possible glitches before the first weddings that are booked from mid-June onwards.
    I will upload some pictures onto our blog of the current renovation as soon as I find the cable to get them off my camera! I keep forgetting to look for it when I’m at home – not very often at the moment (7pm on a sunday evening and we are in the office!!)
    Some might say we are mad… I think ‘passionate’ is the word!

    I got married on 27th June 2009 and had my reception at Pentillie so I can confirm that the refurb is finished and they are taking bookings. It is a truly magical venue.
