Pennsylvania Castle is a spectacular castle that has an enviable position on the Dorset coastline, perched on top white cliffs with far reaching sea views and direct access to a picturesque sheltered cove.

The very impressive Pennsylvania Castle


Pennsylvania Castle’s dramatic setting on the cliffs above a secluded cove in Portland, Dorset, is hard to fault, with stunning views over the landscaped gardens to the sea. The Jurassic Coast is famous for its stunning scenery, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with many unspoilt beaches in the local area. A pathway from the gardens leads past the romantic ruins of the 13th century St Andrews Church and directly down to the idyllic Church Ope Cove, just a few minutes’ walk from the castle.

Imposing gates lead to a sweeping driveway to the front of the property with mature trees and shrubs. There is parking to both the front of the castle and in a large parking area to the north side of the property. The extensive landscaped gardens and grounds include large lawns (one with a wedding pergola), terraces with outdoor dining facilities and sun beds, English, Italian, Tropical and Japanese gardens, and direct access to a sheltered beach just a few minutes walk from the castle. There are amazing views from most parts of the terraces and gardens, and ponds, fountains and waterfalls are featured throughout the grounds. The lawn beyond the Italian garden can be used as a helipad if required.

Elysian's Review

Pennsylvania Castle is one of the loveliest properties in our portfolio, another of our favourites (yes, we have many). The grounds are just beautiful, cascading down to the coastline with panoramic sea views, the terraces are perfect for al fresco dining or an elegant drinks reception in this most beautiful of settings. Pennsylvania Castle itself is wonderful too, light, airy and elegantly furnished, with a feeling of understated luxury throughout. Add in the charming town of Portland which is just ten minutes’ walk away and the abundance of beautiful beaches nearby and you have the perfect coastal retreat for relaxing breaks, special celebrations and sophisticated weddings.
