Entered through a large wooden door in the side of Compton Castle, the Watch Tower is a fascinating building built into the curtain wall. Arranged over three floors and with steep and narrow stairs between each one, this holiday cottage has been carefully converted and retains much of the character of this exceptional historic building.
Children: Due to very steep, narrow stairs we feel this cottage is not suitable for children under 12.
Heating:Night storage heating included.
Parking: Cars must be parked on the grass outside the castle gates at all times. It is possible to load and unload quite near to the Watchtower although luggage will have to be carried a short distance.
Accessibility: The Watch Tower is set over 3 floors with narrow stairs.
Utilities: The kitchen has a fridge with icebox.
Offers: Guests will benefit from a late Sunday checkout of 4pm at this cottage.
Please Note: It is advisable to take a torch if arriving after dark. The key to this cottage if collected has to be picked up before 6.30pm.
