Pentillie Castle

Pentillie Gardens are open to the public on specific days throughout the year.

Over the last 18 months, we have been restoring the mausoleum and walled kitchen gardens, with the very exciting discovery of Sir James Tillie’s vault in the mausoleum. The greenhouse in the walled kitchen gardens was restored to its former glory by Easter 2013 (although it may take a little longer to get the plants growing!) Many of the overgrown woodlands and paths have also been cleared in the last 12 months, to enable you to explore more of Pentillie.

You can also join one of our guided garden tours, usually held on the first Thursday of the month, March to July. If you can gather 15 or more people, we can arrange a private group tour.
