Charming vernacular buildings with mill and forge restored to working order.

The Old Bakery is a stone-built and partially rendered building beneath thatch, which at the time of its closure as a business in 1987 was the last traditional working bakery in Devon.

The old baking equipment has been preserved in the baking room and the rest of the building now serves as a tea-room.

The water-powered Manor Mill probably supplied the flour for the bakery.

The forge is open daily and the blacksmith sells the ironwork he produces.

Few buildings evoke such an immediate feeling of history as Tiverton Castle. Originally built in 1106 by order of Henry I, it was rebuilt and enlarged in the 13th century, and with changes and additions down the centuries nowadays all ages of architecture from medieval to modern can be seen. Once home of the powerful medieval Earls of Devon and a Plantagenet Princess, and besieged by Fairfax during the English Civil War, the Castle has witnessed extremes of peace and turbulence. The furnishings and exhibits reflect the colourful history and development. Superb holiday accommodation. Licensed for Civil Weddings. Beautiful gardens.
