  The Detail...

Discover the delights of North Devon from this truly unique holiday home. Tawstock Castle, a Grade II listed bailey castle with original parts dating to the 18th Century, is a luxury self catering holiday retreat which stands proudly on a rounded hill top with wonderful views of Devon through 360 degrees, from Saunton Burrows and the sea to the north west and overlooking the open countryside of the Taw valley to the south and east.

Tawstock Castle is situated in open countryside and yet is conveniently close to all the facilities of the Devonshire market town of Barnstaple. The holiday retreat is immediately surrounded by lawned gardens of about an acre that are enclosed by a circular bailey. It sits in approximately eight acres of its own parkland.

The house sleeps eight guests, with four bedrooms (two circular), two en-suite bathrooms and one shower room on the ground floor. Theres a large living, dining space with a wood burning fire to keep you cosy on winter nights and all the technology you could need with Plasma 42 inch Freesat HD TV, DVD player and TV with Playstation 3. Enjoy beautiful, original features in this room including an ornate panelled ceiling and turrets to the corners. The kitchen is fully equipped, and theres a CD, radio and iPod dock for listening to your music whilst you cook. For pre-dinner drinks with a view head to the wonderfully private castellated roof terrace. Outside are secure enclosed gardens with electric entry gates, garden furniture for dining al fresco and a barbecue is available April to September. Theres ample parking available, or if youre travelling in style land your helicopter at the onsite helipad.

Youre within easy reach of a beach, and you may want to spend your time simply pottering on the shoreline. There are also some excellent, ample walks from the cottage and nearby to the famous Tarka Trail, or visit Exmoor National Park with its spectacular scenery and enjoy peaceful walks over the moors where you may catch sight of the wild Exmoor ponies.For the sporting enthusiasts there are ample activities to try such as kayaking, fishing, riding or rock pooling to name but a few. Spend time on the famous sandy surfing beaches of Saunton, Woolacombe and Croyde, and investigating the dramatic coastline from the coastal footpath.
