Tamar Castle holds a tranquil position on the Cornish bank of the River Tamar, just fifteen minutes away from the town of Saltash, often regarded as the “Gateway to Cornwall”. The Castle makes a completely unique setting for a holiday, special celebration or wedding and the wonderful memories will certainly last a lifetime.

Dating back to 1698, Tamar Castle boasts infinite charm and character while still possessing all the modern amenities you could possibly need for a contented and relaxed stay. The living accommodation is ideal for socialising and comprises of the elegant drawing room complete with roaring open fire, a formal dining room with seating for twenty-two, a sunny morning room and a fully-equipped family kitchen. 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.

Oliver Approved
