Remote, rocky headlands, sandy beaches, quiet coves, and the endless ocean at your feet, Pengersick
Castle in the West of Cornwall is hardly touched by the modern world.

Built-in the 1520s, the castle’s granite tower once dominated the farmland below, a collection of small
shacks and fishermen’s cottages. The Lord of Pengersick was master of all he could see, and the times
were lawless. Smugglers ran a thriving brandy business with Brittainy, and pirates of the Barbary Coast
were never far away. In Cornwall’s darker past, wreckers were rife:

The castle was a defensive structure with crenelated battlements around the roof and slots where you
could attach your portable cannon, but these days our drop-slot in the stone arch above the massive oak
door is used to strew confetti rather than scald pirates storming the castle.

Pengersick’s sweeping stone staircase will lead you up the tower to the roof and soaring views across
the beach village of Praa Sands, then down to the gun room on the lower floor, now a romantic dining
room set amongst the silent suits of armour and flickering candlelight. Relax in front of a roaring fire
before drifting asleep to the sounds of the sea in an authentic sixteenth-century four-poster bed.

Beloved by writers, artists and poets, West Cornwall has always been a magical place. No wonder that
film and TV crews can be seen most summers. Look westwards across Cudden Point to Prussia Cove
where Ladies in Lavender and Summer in February were filmed. Look east towards Rinsey Head and
Poldark country, and see the headland of Lizard Point where Fishermen’s Friends began, a successful
2019 movie and now a musical. Most recently the Game of Thrones prequel at St. Michael’s Mount, just
five miles away.

Even more recently Hallmark Films used Pengersick Castle as the location for a literary festival in a
the romantic film set in Cornwall called ‘Presence of Love” starring Eloise Mumford, Julian Morris, Samantha
Bond and Anand Desai-Barochia.

If you love history, let your imagination run wild in the 500-year-old castle and the five acres of grounds
that have been occupied since the Bronze Age.

Pengersick Castle is a very special place, and perfect for your special day.

We say “Here’s a Tudor Castle, come and play with it. Your special day is our speciality”
