Stunning location and rather wonderful to have the castle grounds to ourselves once the gates had been shut for the day. The standard of accommodation was very high.
Superb accommodation, exceeded expectations. The website doesn't do the place justice! The welcome was exceptional and the house is beautifully cared for.
The dog loved it almost as much as we did. Staff at castle couldn't have been nicer.
We loved Pendennis. The Housekeeper was brilliant. A great welcome with a very complete welcome pack and loads of helpful info. Fresh flowers were a lovely thought and the place was immaculately prepared.
