Originally built in 1106 by order of Henry I, and later rebuilt and enlarged in the 13th and 14th centuries, Tiverton Castle invokes an incredibly atmospheric sense of history. What could be more romantic than making a Castle your home for a few days?
Once home of the powerful medieval Earls of Devon and a Plantagenet Princess, the Castle has been added to and altered over the last several hundred years to become a wonderful amalgamation of all periods of architecture from medieval to modern. The Castle has now been turned, in part, into a collection of large, self-contained holiday properties and one of these is Pear Tree, an apartment just for two. Enjoy a free tour of the castle and learn about its history, seasonal fruits and vegetables available from the kitchen garden, fish on the banks of the River Exe (licence needed) or explore the surrounding countryside.
Tiverton is a market town, the largest in Mid Devon, with interesting history and architecture. Easy motoring access to North & South coast beaches, Exmoor, Dartmoor, Exeter, many local attractions and sporting facilities, lovely village pubs and restaurants, unspoilt countryside.
Leave the M5 at Junction 27 and go a full 7 miles on the A361 towards Tiverton to a roundabout where the Castle is signposted. Follow Tiverton Castle signs.
