Heritage

There was evidence of a vineyard on the Old Walls land more than 2000 years ago.

The Romans took advantage of the south facing slopes and well-drained soil, as we are doing once more. The name ‘Old Walls’ has been adopted from its proximity to another place of historical interest, The ‘Bishops Palace’. Walter Bronsecombe, a native of Exeter, took over as bishop in 1258, displaying an integrity of character and attention to ecclesiastical duties. He secured a market and fair for Bishopsteignton in 1270, and during the following decade instigated the construction of the Bishop’s Palace, the inspiration of the naming of Old Walls Vineyard. All that is left of the 13th century building are some small sections of wall which we have taken care to help restore and keep on display for furture generations.

Old Walls Vineyard today

We are slightly fanatical about continuing the wine making heritage at Old Walls. And we believe passionately in using local services and produce wherever possible as demonstrated in the Bistro menu choices.

Perfect wedding day

"We chose Old Walls as the venue for our wedding reception as we live in the village. We knew our guests would find the setting beautiful and so convenient with the lodges and plenty of parking, but we had no idea what a fantastic success it would be! The manager was in tune with our ideas and kept good communication throughout the planning process."

Enjoyable vineyard tour

"The whole tour was very Informative and entertaining. The guide was very knowledgeable about the vineyard and the wine-making process. The wines themselves were excellent, each of the visitors being given the opportunity to taste them. The adjoining restaurant overlooked the vineyard and the valley of Holmfirth and the breakfast we had was very good. Overall a very enjoyable morning."

Stayed for a 4 night stay with dogs

"We stayed in one of the dog-friendly lodges. It was beautifully modern, crisp and clean. The staff were very helpful and the place was really peaceful and quiet. A very relaxing place to stay and great dog walks on the beaches at Dawlish and Teignmouth. The lodge wasn't big but it was beautifully formed and had wooden floors throughout, as well as a fully enclosed garden so great for dogs. A great place to stay with dogs."
