Rosa Pelham Suit would have approved of Andrew Gosline, current owner of her precious stone cottage known to the world as Berkeley Castle especially since he has her portrait hanging in the gleaming wood dining room. He enhanced the gardens, expanded the terraces and rebuilt the turret guardhouse that she added in 1893. The three-story tower, battlements and exterior castle walls of local sandstone have been repointed and century-old mortar replaced. Her bedroom and the adjacent childrens’ rooms are now Gosline’s three-room suite and the wood-paneled library has been trasnformed into a game room.

Twenty-first century Berkeley Castle has been returned to its original 19th century purpose as a private home causing endless sighs and moans of dismay from visitors who remember it open for house tours. Today, public use of the castle that perches on the mountainside above the park and town is limited to weddings, photo shoots and occasional community events including the annual Museum Tea the first Sunday in December.
