Castle Hill Devon welcomes you most warmly to this stunning beautiful Palladian home in its wondrous grade 1 landscape in north Devon. It gives us great pleasure to be able to share our romantic Woodland Gardens with you. Wonder through rare trees along tranquil paths where magnolias, camellias, rhododendrons and azaleas grow in abundance together with profusions of daffodils, bluebells and carpets of Devon primroses.
Meander beside water where Tarka the Otter's offspring gambol with vistas to 18th Century Temples and bridges. Visit Sham Castle with all round views to distant horizons. A peaceful descent brings you to our Millennium Garden, a summer haven of lavender and gentle colours.
Look on our website and Facebook page for details of our events which run throughout the year including Open Theatre productions or come to us for your important celebrations hiring our West Wing or enjoying a marquee on the West Lawn. We are licenced for Civil Weddings and have three locations in the grounds for the ceremony, a truly magical backdrop for your special day.
