The Castle can comfortably sleep up to twenty-two guests across its eleven beautifully-appointed bedrooms, nine of which boast en-suite facilities. On the ground floor is the first of the bedrooms, specially designed with those who struggle with mobility in mind. Upstairs, on the first floor, are a further eight sumptuous, en-suite bedrooms, a number of which can be set up with twin beds on request. The final two bedrooms are situated in the castellated turrets and share a family bathroom.

The gardens are as equally impressive, with fifty-five acres of woodland grounds to explore, there are plenty of beautiful walks to enjoy. During the Summer months, the solar-heated swimming pool is the place to be and provides hours of fun for the whole family! There are multiple terraces complete with dining facilities, ideal for al fresco dining or simply enjoying a peaceful drink in the magnificent surroundings.

Reviews

  • Amazing!

    Created on 24/08/2022

    Stunning location. Excellent service with very friendly staff. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Rooms were amazing, so regal and comfortable.

  • You have to stay here..

    Created on 02/08/2022

    We had a fabulous stay at Tamar Castle. The weather was perfect for daily swims and walks around the extensive, beautiful grounds. We felt we had total freedom, even our own key to the front door. The team were amazing, looking after us from a distance making sure we wanted for nothing. Having breakfast every morning and looking across uninterrupted views of countryside was breath-taking, it was another lifestyle, in another world, perfectly real. The catered final evening is highly recommended for that extra touch of indulgence. Staying at Tamar Castle is a must for everyone. Do it, do it, do it, you know you want to.

  • A wonderful birthday weekend!

    Created on 21/07/2022

    We stayed at Tamar Castle for the weekend to celebrate my Husband’s ‘big’ birthday. We invited family and close friends to stay with us. Tamar Castle surpassed our expectations in every way. The rooms are beautiful, they arranged wonderful food and the staff went beyond the call of duty to ensure we had such a special time. I can’t recommend it highly enough.

  • Exceeded expectations

    on 01/07/2022

    We planned a week long family reunion for 22 at Tamar Castle, and it was a spectacular event with memories to last a lifetime. Despite rain throughout our stay, the venue was absolutely perfect. Every guest was able to relax and enjoy every minute of their stay. All the staff were gracious and kind with all our requests. We can't wait to repeat this vacation at this same venue. All the outside companies that were recommended were phenomenal and exceeded our expectations.

  • Magical

    Created on 04/04/2022

    Wonderful place , everything you could want for a party weekend. Magical estate and a great team.

  • We love Tamar Castle!

    on 29/09/2021

    We run award-winning wellbeing retreats and this is the perfect location for our events: private, luxurious, calm, stunning views, lots to do, and grounds to explore! Our guests loved the beautiful rooms, space to breathe, and the intimacy of a private venue.

  • It was perfect

    on 01/08/2021

    We are a large family of 21 and spent the most glorious week at Tamar Castle. The first place in 16 years when everyone was entirely delighted with their accommodation! Beautiful grounds. Luxurious bedrooms. Massive kitchen and dining room and friendly and welcoming staff and owners. It was perfect. We loved it. We even had a murder mystery in the drawing room! Would go back at the drop of a hat!

  • Magical castle set in the dreamiest of landscapes

    on 27/08/2020

    Every element of our stay was wonderful from our first glimpse of the castle from the drive, to the wonderful walks, swims and dining. Thoughtful touches all the way through to make our stay even more exceptional. Would book again in a heartbeat!

  • We were not disappointed

    on 28/12/2019

    Fantastic location, and excellent service from the team, both prior to and on arrival. We hired Tamar Castle for a Christmas family gathering. Our second time. We were not disappointed. The estate and surrounding walks provides for excellent walking, and the Castle a very welcome return. I am looking forward to more opportunities to visit in the future.
