About The Watch TowerAn intriguing three-storey abode, built into the walls of a small Devonshire castle.
Enter The Watch Tower through a large wooden door to discover a carefully restored medieval gem. The three-storey building is built into the curtain wall of Compton Castle and features a narrow winding staircase and small peeping windows.
The castle is set in a landscape of rolling hills and orchards, close to the South Devon coastline. There are gardens of the estate to explore as well as the inside of the small castle.
Other nearby estates, which guests will have free access to, include to Coleton Fishacre and Bradley Manor. The seaside town of Paignton and its zoo are less than a 20-minte drive from here.
