Enjoy a piece of extravagance when staying at Pennsylvania Castle, Margaret River; offering four bedrooms in a luxurious modernised home wrapped in over 200 years of Portland stone and stories! For most of its life the castle has just hosted visitors, but now in its latest incarnation it welcomes groups and families to relax in its lavish rooms and grounds.

From the moment your party rolls up the private driveway the dream becomes a reality, making you quickly unpack your luggage because everything about this house demands you take your time to enjoy every moment.

Take your pick from the four lavish bedrooms, each with unique character and views but all fully furnished and fitted with en suite bathrooms.

When morning comes, take your time over a large family breakfast in the lovely marbled topped kitchen while you plan out your day. Whatever your interest there’s a room for you whether it’s the warm swimming pool, peaceful library, family room or incredible views of the conservatory.

When you’re ready to see the wonderful isle, step outside and enjoy the landscaped gardens, manicured lawns and waterfall; all framed by the amazing views of the coast.

In clear view to the east, Rufus castle stands proud with the natural coastline stretching south as far as you can see and just a short stroll away you’ll find a lovely secluded beach nestled in Church Ope Cove.
