Devon mansion comes complete with castle

The village of Mamhead near Dawlish in Devon is home to the extraordinary Mamhead House, a 19th century mansion with a difference - it has its own castle in the grounds!

Currently on the market for a cool £8 million, this Grade 1-listed property was built as the bridal home for an Exeter MP and his new wife in 1833, and comes with the additional feature of Mamhead Castle.

Designed to replicate the historic Belsay Castle in Northumberland, the unique structure is now treated as a separate entity to the house and has recently been developed into an unusual office space for the South West England branch of the Forestry Commission.
