Berry Pomeroy Castle is tucked away in a deep wooded valley, and is the perfect romantic ruin with a colourful and intriguing history to discover! A reputedly haunted ruins to explore amongst the woods and rocky outcrops of Berry Pomeroy.

Explore the dramatic ruined shell of the great Elizabethan mansion of the Seymours, set within the 15th century defences of the Pomeroy castle. Building of the house began in about 1560, with ambitious enlargements from circa 1600 intending to create the most spectacular house in Devon!

But the family ran out of money, and by 1700, the castle was an abandoned shell and became the focus of blood curdling ghost stories! You can hear all about this and more in the great audio tour that is included in the entry fee.

The location of the castle also makes it a great place for a walk, with beautiful woodland nearby, and if you want to have a historic day out with the family, Totnes Castle and Dartmouth castle are only a short drive away.
