Things to do near Pentillie

Located in the Tamar Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Pentillie is a stone’s throw from the famous St Mellion Signature Niklaus golf course.

The north and south coasts of Cornwall are within easy reach, as are many of the great gardens of Cornwall, including the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project, not to mention Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor.

Although Pentillie sits in silent countryside just outside the village of Landulph, Plymouth is only 20 mins by car where the Theatre Royal shows quality plays and musicals – often before they hit the West End. There are many marinas nearby and there is a mooring just a short tender ride from Pentillie’s own quay. Pentillie Castle is the perfect retreat for your country holiday.

Here are some links to local attractions and places to visit nearby:

Local Produce from the Tamar Valley

We try and source as much as we can from the local area, and even from the estate itself. The very local produce (from Pentillie estate) includes our Apple Juice, home-made jams and preserves, honey, herbs, apples, eggs and meat.

Other produce is sourced from the Tamar Valley (see sample price list here), Warrens the butcher in Launceston (all his meat is supplied from within a 30 mile radius), the fish markets in Looe and Plymouth, and other local suppliers including the Cornish Crisp Company based in Callington!
