    Spoilt for choice

    Compton Castle is close to three other amazing places, all perfect for group visits. Why not get in touch; we'll be happy to arrange a visit to some of them before or after your visit to Compton.

  • Bradley

    This unspoiled medieval manor house is hidden in the heart of Newton Abbot, amidst riverside meadows and woodland. Well worth a look around, and just six miles from Compton Castle.

  • Greenway

    The beloved holiday home of Agatha Christie is perched on the banks of the River Dart and surrounded by romantic woodland gardens. The Georgian house is filled with Agatha and her family's extensive collections, and the heart of the house, the House Kitchen, is a dedicated space for group refreshments.

  • Coleton Fishacre

    Step back in time to the jazz age at Coleton Fishacre The house is imbued with elegant art deco style, and the gardens are a sheltered haven for exotic and tender plants. Art deco inspired Café Coleton always has a seasonal treat to take your fancy.
