Penn Castle holds a wonderful location on the iconic Isle of Portland and enjoys magnificent sea views over Church Ope Cove and the famous Jurassic coastline, an area so special, it is regarded by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. The neo-Gothic Castle makes a completely unique holiday home for those looking to stay in style while exploring all of the beauty the county of Dorset has to offer.

The Castle can comfortably accommodate up to twenty guests across nine beautifully-appointed bedrooms, each with en-suite facilities. On the ground floor is the impressive living accommodation, a spacious drawing room and library, ideal for socialising while enjoying the sea views, a cosy study, a formal dining room as well as a fully-equipped kitchen which boasts all the tools you could possibly need to whip up a delicious meal. On the mezzanine-style floor above are the first two bedrooms, a super-king and a twin room, both complete with en-suite facilities. Upstairs on the first floor are seven of the bedrooms, each with its own en-suite bathroom or shower room. The master bedroom is truly special, positioned within the turret of the castle it boasts impressive views out to sea and features an emperor bed and freestanding handmade bath. On this level, there are a further five king or super-king rooms as well as a fantastic family room which can be set up with either two super-king beds, four singles or a combination!

The real wow factor can be found in the orangery, during selected months, guests will enjoy splashing around in the indoor heated pool while enjoying the wonderful sea views. The tranquil gardens are perfect for afternoon strolls or picnics, after action-packed days spent exploring this delightful part of Dorset, guests will enjoy laidback meals al fresco on the terrace.

Penn Castle is situated on the Isle of Portland, the most southernmost point on the Jurassic coast, a tied island joined to the mainland by Chesil beach. Despite being relatively small in size, there is plenty to see, do and explore without even leaving the isle, enjoy a visit to the 16th century Portland Castle, Rufus Castle or Portland Bill Lighthouse or simply choose to spend afternoons lazing in the sun on Church Ope Cove.

The seaside town of Weymouth is just a 20-minute drive away, a resort hugely popular with families and it’s easy to see why with its golden sand beaches, sand sculptures, crazy golf and Sea Life Centre. Further afield, the popular market town of Lyme Regis is an hours’ drive away while dramatic West Bay, made famous from the ITV series Broadchurch, is just 50-minutes away.
