Compton Castle: Dramatic fortified manor house and small formal garden. Fairy-tale castle hidden in a lush south Devon valley. A medley of fortified towers, battlements and buttresses. 600-year-old home of the Gilbert family, kindred of Sir Walter Raleigh. Delightful flowering gardens, enclosed by a stone curtain wall. The Great Kitchen offers a unique insight into medieval domestic life. Film location for Sense and Sensibility (1995)
