Exceptional Service

Our award-winning Guest Services team will not only help you find your dream holiday but will support you through every step of your stay.

Your journey begins with the picturesque driveway, paving the way to this magnificent abode. Sir James Tillie’s statue will greet you in the Courtyard, before stepping inside to be impressed by the castle’s grandeur and many years of family history.

The elegant dining room sits in the heart of the castle and is a fabulous place to wine, dine, entertain, and socialise. Seating up to 22 guests, you can gather here for a delicious banquet, admire the gold-framed portraits and clink champagne glasses until nightfall. Once replenished, retire to the drawing room in front of the open log fire, sink into the cosy sofas and reminisce good memories under the glistening chandelier.

Next door you will find the morning room, a comfortable space to relax and unwind. Nestle into the sofas, sip a warming cup of tea, and admire the far-reaching views from the patio doors. As the sun starts to set, wiggle your toes in front of the open fire or snuggle up to watch a film on the TV.

The large kitchen provides everything you should need to self-cater with ease, including an AGA, a large gas oven and hob, two dishwashers, a microwave, and an American-style fridge/freezer. Congregate around the eight-seater dining table to discuss your next adventure or natter over a cup of coffee to start the morning right. Rearing off the kitchen is a handy boot room, where you will find a selection of Le Chameau’s to wear for your walks.

Head down the steps to the cellar/games room where you will find an abundance of activities to keep the whole group entertained. There is a pool table, table football, a dartboard, and a Smart TV, enabling you to watch the latest sports match or big game.

There are eleven bedrooms, all of which have been beautifully decorated with soft linen sheets, original antiques, and chic interiors throughout. There is one accessible bedroom on the ground floor, featuring a wet room and all the luxuries the first floor rooms provide. The impressive staircase will lead you to eight first-floor bedrooms, all of which boast incredible views of the river or gardens and are equipped with a king-size bed as standard and en-suites (all bar one with a shower and bath). The final two bedrooms are additional rooms in the attic, sharing a shower room with views across the gardens. The option to have rooms twinned (two single beds) is available in all rooms except the Dewhurst Suite, Coryton and Wyndham. Bayly is twinned as standard.

The outside space is complete with 55 acres of private woodland to explore, a solar-heated outdoor swimming pool (open seasonally, please see more information within House Rules below) and three large terraces with riverside views. Play a game of croquet on the lawn, toast marshmallows on the fire pit under a blanket of stars and absorb the exceptional surroundings that will take your breath away time and time again.

The owners will greet you on arrival and show you into the property.

Location of 'Cornish Castle


The neighbourhood

Cornish Castle is located a short drive from Saltash, also known as the ‘Gateway to Cornwall’ and neighbours the famous St Mellion Golf Course. Whilst there is so much to do nearby, the estate itself provides an abundance of activities to enjoy, including walking the woodland gardens, stand up paddleboarding on the River Tamar, gin tasting, clay pigeon shooting (available between April and June), 4x4 driving and so much more.

Just 10 minutes away, ‘The Who’d Have Thought It Inn’ serves delicious home-cooked meals and provides a hearty Cornish pub atmosphere. The local town of Saltash features all the amenities you will need for your self-catering stay and the many close-by villages and towns allow you to browse boutiques, grab a coffee and a slice of cake or enjoy a locally sourced meal in a restaurant beside the sea.
