Tiverton and Little Compton: two small towns, one perfect drive. With a handful of historic buildings, rustic outposts, a captivating vineyard, and miles of serenity, these towns escape the hurried lifestyle of surrounding towns. Tiverton Four Corners, a village of 18th century structures, has an array of colorful boutiques, studios and gourmet specialty shops like, The Cheese Wheel Village Market, Gray’s Ice Cream (est. 1938) and Provender Fine Foods. Bucolic Little Compton, where the entire town commons is on the National Register of Historic Places, is known for its quiet and unspoiled landscape. Here you'll also find Carolyn's Sakonnet Vineyards,on 150 acres of land, 30 of which have produced award-winning wines for more than four decades. Grapes there are picked by hand and barrel-aged in French, Hungarian, Russian and American oak. Enjoy's Little Compton's natural wonders, including Goosewing Beach Preserve and South Shore Beach, both boasting panoramic ocean views.
