National Trust Compton Castle

Dramatic fortified manor house and small formal garden


A rare survivor, this medieval fortress with high curtain walls, towers and a portcullis, set in a landscape of rolling hills and orchards, is a bewitching mixture of romance and history.

Home for nearly 600 years to the Gilbert family, including Sir Humphrey Gilbert - half-brother to Sir Walter Raleigh.

Wander round this charming small castle's medieval kitchen, great hall, solar and sub solar.
