The Setting

The Penn Estate’s clifftop setting provides charming views of Church Ope Cove and the UNESCO World Heritage Jurassic Coastline. The neo-gothic design of the Castle effortlessly combines intimacy, elegance and grandeur, beautifully refurbished with a modern look and feel throughout.

Couples are encouraged to explore the picturesque grounds, moving across sweeping manicured lawns to discover the beautiful Italian Garden and romantic English Rose Garden, the perfect setting to enjoy the best evening sunshine for after-dinner cocktails and garden games.
