Imposing and impressive with views onto the River Tamar, this absolutely remarkable castle is a magical haven for families and friends seeking elegance, style and a property with an abundance of grandeur.
Situated on the Devon and Cornwall Border, in South Cornwall there is plenty of exploring to do and admire the rich history of this Castle dating back to 1698. On the River Tamar take a boat trip, hire some paddleboards or kayaks. Venture further afield and explore the remarkable South Coast, Whitsand Bay offering four miles of golden sands accessed via a steep cliff path. The nearby South West Coast Path runs along the cliffs, offering walks to Portwrinkle, Downderry, Looe and Polperro. Take a day clay pigeon shooting, wine tasting, try 4x4 off-roading all available at the Castle (at an additional cost) or explore the stunning gardens and an afternoon of croquet or bowles on the lawn. If all this sounds too exhausting, a day relaxing by the heated swimming pool is never wasted time.
