Are you itching to escape with your loved one to a ridiculously romantic hideaway?  Then Taw Tower, beautifully and privately located to showcase the sparkling River Taw, is just the place.

A Grade II listed watchtower set high on a hill, you’ll have the whole tower to yourselves throughout your stay.  This being a watchtower, there’s plenty of scope to immerse yourselves in those glorious views – no matter which room you happen to be in!

The cosy accommodation is light, lovely and open-plan throughout, with furniture perfectly positioned for you to enjoy the best of that riverside scenery over refreshing drinks.

While there is no oven in the tower, there are basic kitchen facilities.  The lawn garden comes equipped with a barbecue for sizzling suppers, and there are plenty of pubs nearby that serve mouthwatering meals…a fantastic excuse to get out and explore!

The long, sandy Devon beaches of Westward Ho!, Saunton and Croyde are within easy reach, and the pretty market town of Barnstaple is nearby for shopping and entertainment.   And of course, you can take plenty of long country strolls right from the doorstep.

Just make sure you’re back in time to catch the sun sinking over the river from the comfort of your romantic watchtower.  We guarantee it’s a sight you won’t want to miss.
