The Castle Hill Estate
Castle Hill near Filleigh, Barnstaple was built in 1730 as the Earl of Fortescue’s family home. The Palladian House, in which his descendants, the Earl and Countess of Arran are living, is set in a spectacular 18th century parkland landscape with grass terraces and statues leading down to the river and lakes.
Only one mile from Hartland Quay, Hartland Abbey lies across a narrow, sheltered valley which winds its way to the spectacular Atlantic Coast. Within a designated ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’ visitors may wander around the beautiful gardens and grounds which lead to the rocky cove. Peacocks and guinea fowl roam at will, whilst donkeys and Black Welsh Mountain sheep graze the Old Deer Park.
