Rivergaze Castle

A private castle with breathtaking views

Built in 1698, this historic Cornish castle by the river truly enjoys magnificent views. As part of an estate that covers over 2,000 acres of land, this property is the ideal private location for all occasions. From magical weddings - be it intimate or lavish - to family retreats and corporate events, Rivergaze Castle is the perfect setting for an unforgettable experience.

Renowned gardens 

Experience true estate living at this luxurious property. With its river façade and extensive grounds, Rivergaze Castle showcases mature gardens that have been compared to the world-renowned and historic Lost Gardens of Heligan. During the summer months, guests can enjoy the solar-heated outdoor pool, enclosed within a beautiful walled garden.

Charming, stylish rooms

Enjoy the warmest of welcomes upon arrival and step into the light-filled ground floor reception rooms with magnificent views. The castle which has recently undergone renovations, successfully retains its classic charm and boasts wood and stone flooring and refined antiques. 

Rivergaze Castle provides the ultimate in rest and relaxation. The retreat boasts a bright and charming kitchen with an authentic farmhouse table and new Aga cooker and 10 bedrooms with a total of 10 private and en-suite bathrooms.

Truly private surroundings

The landscape provides a wealth of opportunities for activities. Enjoy long leisurely walks or stylish riverside picnics, but do take some time to simply be lulled by the glorious sense of peace and tranquillity that this striking private castle embodies.

Open to the public for the first time in centuries, Rivergaze Castle has quickly established itself as a property that features one of the UK’s most significant gardens and prised houses. Perfect for both intimate and lavish weddings, we highly recommend that reservations are made early.
