Tawstock Castle is no ordinary home. It is an enchanting small romantic castle deep within the Devon dream. Sleeping 8, our welcoming hideaway near the picturesque village of Tawstock is close Barnstaple & N. Devon’s sandy beaches. History buffs will not be disappointed - our stunning 18th-century castle is the last castle to have built in England & has two Grade II listed towers originally constructed as a lookout for Lord Wrey. And for 'wow' factor, its fairytale turrets & yawning acreage of perfect parkland weave their magic over the countryside with 360 degree views over the Taw Valley & Saunton Sands. Beautifully restored & 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 has ornate panelled ceiling & turrets to the corners, luxurious sofas, a laid open fire, 42″ TV & dining area making a very sociable space. The unique circular kitchen is contemporary & well equipped to cook up any feast. There are 4 sumptuous bedrooms, with 2 bedrooms having en suite facilities. 2 circular bedrooms are in the the tower itself. You may need to draw lots!
