Description

Few buildings evoke such a feeling of history as venerable Tiverton Castle, which celebrated its 900th anniversary in 2006.

Originally built in 1106 by order of Henry I, and later rebuilt and much enlarged in the 13th and 14th centuries, it was once home of the powerful medieval Earls of Devon and of a Plantagenet Princess. With later additions and alterations down the centuries all periods of architecture from medieval to modern can be seen, with beautiful walled gardens within the romantic ruins.
Besieged during the English Civil War by General Sir Thomas Fairfax, it fell due to a lucky shot hitting a drawbridge chain. This was the only time in its long history that it saw battle.
The four large, self-catering and self-contained apartments, which have been totally refurbished and have been awarded the English Tourist Board National Quality Grading and Classification Scheme rating of 4 Stars are found in the main Castle building.

All are approached through a turret door and the first and second floor apartments via a magnificent 17th century well staircase. There is full gas central heating and electricity. All beds have duvets, but blankets can be provided if preferred. Shared garden and garden furniture, barbecue, bonfire, croquet.

Free tours of the castle. Seasonal fruit and vegetables from the kitchen garden. Free Parking. Free fishing on the banks of the River Exe. Sorry, no pets, no smoking. Friday to Friday.
