Cove Holiday Park is part of Pennsylvania Castle Estate which was first built in 1800 on the top of the cliffs, overlooking Church Ope Cove and the English Channel. With uninterrupted views out to sea, and across the Estate there were beautiful vantage points to enjoy the marvellous vista.
In 2014 we started a project to once again provide space to enjoy the wonderful seascape. On a cliff ledge which had been landscaped as part of the grounds we commissioned Morrow & Lorraine Architects to design five lodges that would fit into the cliff landscape, embrace the local ecology, and use Portland Stone in a way that demonstrated the Islands unique geology. A given was always to ensure that the views of the Jurassic Coast really came into the lodges and create a sense of cliff living. The outside roof space will provide a platform to watch the sea in the day and stars at night.
Now known as Clifftops, these five lodges will open in May 2019. They will be more than just self-catering accommodation. Combining luxury and service our guests will be able to enjoy fully serviced accommodation, in-lodge catering, housekeeping, and activities management from the Estate Team. Alternatively guests are welcome to be left alone and manage their stay without any interruptions.
Guests across the Estate enjoy the bespoke nature of their stay. This will also be available at Clifftops, catering for all our guest needs within an experience that will be totally bespoke in a truly unique environment.
So far the work is going well. The feedback from guest staying on park as been positive and you can see more of what people have to say on our TripAdvisor or Facebook pages. We will continue to keep you updated with how the development is going and here is a video of the progress so far:
The view from the roof deck is stunning. Perfect for a drink on the terrace next summer or maybe our sunrise Yoga sessions. With the bridge from the Penn Castle Grounds near completion we will have ended this phase of the build and moving onto the Portland Stone walls.
