Tawstock Castle is no ordinary home. It is an enchanting small romantic castle deep within the Devon dream. Sleeping eight, our warm and welcoming hideaway near the tranquil picturesque village of Tawstock is close Barnstaple and North Devon's sandy beaches.
History buffs will not be disappointed. Surrounded by a circular Grade II listed bailey (walled courtyard), our stunning 18th-century castle has a fascinating history. It is the last castle to have built in England and has two Grade II listed towers which were originally constructed as a lookout for Lord Wrey.
And for 'wow' factor, Tawstock Castle scores pretty high too. With its fairytale turrets and yawning acreage of perfect parkland, it weaves its magic over the Devonshire countryside with 360 degree views over the Taw Valley and Saunton Sands.
Beautifully restored and effortlessly elegant, the owner's attention to detail is evident throughout with lots of thoughtful touches to make your stay special.
The 35′ reception room is fit for kings and queens. Ornate panelled ceiling and turrets to the corners, luxurious sofas, a cosy laid open fire, 42″ TV and dining area make for a very sociable space. The unique circular kitchen is also on the ground floor - contemporary and very well equipped to cook up any feast.
Four sumptuous bedrooms have incredibly comfortable beds and two bedrooms have the added benefit of en suite facilities. Two circular bedrooms are in the tower itself. With access to a wonderfully private castellated roof terrace with 360 degree views, you may need to draw lots over who gets them.
Approached through electric gates, Tawstock Castle is surrounded by approximately one acre of lawned gardens enclosed by the bailey. The ideal spot to sizzle steaks on the barbie or relax with a spot of afternoon tea or a glass or two of bubbly.
