Historic and full of character yet also contemporary and luxurious, Pennsylvania Castle is a peaceful coastline property where you can live your own fairytale. The opulent bedrooms, lavish living spaces and landscaped gardens have to be seen to be believed.
Nestled on the Isle of Portland, this elegant castle offers the perfect setting for family holidays, special celebrations and quality time with friends. Each of the nine en-suite bedrooms is stylish and unique, the communal areas are expansive and diverse, the gardens are a delight and the views of the sea and coastline are stunning. And there are plenty of extras on offer, from wine tasting or a personal chef to a welcome hamper of goodies or a guided tour of the local area. Pennsylvania Castle is an incredible example of English history but it is also a beautifully modernised holiday home.

Within the house and grounds there is plenty to keep you entertained but if you want to venture out then there is plenty of history, bird life and scenery to discover. Why not talk a walk around the rugged coastline or explore the secluded beach nestled into Church Ope Cove? Or you could visit the island’s castle, admire Pulpit Rock, try your hand at sailing or go kite surfing in Portland Harbour before settling into a local pub.
You can reach Portland via the causeway or by boat. Weymouth is a well-connected train station.

The castle is blessed with several large living spaces – a Living Room with a dining table, an open fire, several sofas and Sky TV, a Study with Chesterfield furniture and a Wii games console, a Library with an open fire, a piano and a selection of books and board games, and a Conservatory where you can dine and enjoy the views. There is also a Kitchen with all the mod cons, a Dining Room with a large table and a fully furnished bar, and a utility area. Upstairs there are nine fabulous bedrooms (a mixture of king, double and twin) the largest of which is a wonderful turret room with feature windows and a freestanding handmade bath.
The property is surrounded by enclosed private gardens made up of manicured lawns, landscaped gardens, a waterfall and spectacular views over the coast. There are several patios and terraces for al fresco entertaining, and the swimming pool is open between October and March (outside of these months the pool is covered and large garden games are available). There is a secure gated driveway with ample parking.
