In Barnstaple, North Devon, Tawstock Castle, a magnificent Grade II listed building from the 18th century, is up for sale.

This gorgeous, traditional and modern characteristics abound in this honey-hued gothic property for sale. The spiral staircase, stone walls, and elaborate cornices all highlight the castle’s opulent 200-year heritage, but the monochrome kitchen gives off a more contemporary vibe.

Within are four country-classic bedrooms, two of which feature en-suite bathrooms, a large reception room with its own fireplace, a circular kitchen, laundry, and a study.

Castle countryside views

The roof terrace and tower lookout, as well as two more peculiar circular bedrooms, are accessible from the main tower. There is no better place to sit and take in the breathtaking views than the castle, which is currently available for staycations through Airbnb.

However, one of our favorite things about the property is all of its hidden corners. There is an aura of adventure about the place, even down to the little cabinets and staircases.
