One-Off Feature

Castle Barton is a beautiful, spacious three bedroom house in Devon, in the grounds of Tiverton Castle which was originally built in 1106 by order of King Henry I.  It was originally a farmhouse built in about 1840 and is adjacent to the 15th century Castle gatehouse.  The castle and grounds are home to five properties – very comfortable accommodation just a short walk from the shops and restaurants of Tiverton.  The Castle is open to the public two afternoons a week on Sundays, Thursdays, and Bank Holidays from 2.30-5.30 from Easter Sunday to the end of October.

General Info

Tiverton Castle simply oozes history and atmosphere and offers very comfortable accommodation and unusual places to stay.  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  self-contained holiday properties.

The Area Surrounding The Property / Accommodation

There’s lots to explore on site - you can enjoy a free tour of the castle and learn about its history, or wander through the walled gardens down to the River Exe and enjoy the produce from the kitchen garden.  There are many local attractions and facilities in the vicinity, as well as some lovely village pubs and restaurants, and miles of unspoilt countryside to explore.  Tiverton is a market town with interesting history and architecture, and the north and south coast beaches are just a short drive away, as are Exmoor, Dartmoor and Exeter.
