Penn Hill

Penn Hill is a thriving neighborhood that perfectly embodies the essence of modern living. 

With its unique blend of community charm, convenience, and a touch of coastal allure, Penn Hill is a place where residents enjoy the best of both worlds.

Penn Hill

Whether you’re after breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks or coffee and cake, Jenkins & Sons – a converted 1920s butchers and fishmongers – will be sure to satisfy you. The family-owned buzzing bar and restaurant focus on good, honest, locally sourced food – think fancy burgers, wood-fired pizzas, à la carte dishes with a twist, such as the Colourful Calabrian Ravioli, and hearty Sunday roasts (Penn Central also brings a strong roast game with its Sunday carvery). And don’t leave before you’ve tried their Hot Chocolate Dough Balls, ‘a naughty Jenkins special’.

Culinary Heaven

Get ‘naughty’ up the road with Gossip’s creamy, dreamy tiramisu, too. Also serving a sizable selection of delicious pizza, pasta and cicchetti (the Italian version of tapas), you may have to ask the waitstaff for ‘a few more minutes please’ while you peruse the inviting menu. Mamma mia (*chef’s kiss*)!

From Italian to French fare, nip over the road to Isabel’s Brasserie, the perfect spot for a special occasion or romantic dinner (the candlelit booths ensure that love is in the air). Also in the air is the mouthwatering aroma of delectable dishes being served, such as Soufflé au Fromage, Duck à l’Orange and Baileys Crème Brûlée.

Finding Balance

After treating your taste buds, you may want to treat your body (and mind) to a yoga session. South Coast Yoga caters for beginners right through to the most experienced yogi. Offering a varied timetable that includes different types of yoga – ashtanga, hot flow, vinyasa flow, dynamic – you’ll be sure to find something to stretch yourself. If a walk in the woods is more your cup of tea when it comes to exercise, you can stroll through the chine, past the tennis courts (fancy a game?) right down to the beach. You can even reward yourself with a cup of tea (or hot chocolate, or glass of prosecco) at Branksome Beach cafe and restaurant.


  • What a hidden gem! Penn Hill was super close to the beach whilst feeling really safe and homely.
