Okehampton Castle was built immediately after the Norman Invasion of England in 1068. The castle has been modified many times over the years with the majority of the building remaining dating from the 14th century. Henry, Marquis of Exeter, was found guilty of conspiracy and was executed by Henry VIII. Some say that it is his ghost that still walks within these walls.

Explore the castle or picnic by the river in the pretty woodland. Visit at springtime to see the ground covered with wild flowers.
