      Spooky but fab holiday!

      Great place for a Halloween holiday! The castle was perfect for a large family. The owners were really helpful and the location was perfect for lots of dog walks and pub lunches!!

      5/5 Excellent


        Take friends/family and enjoy. The building has history and is certainly quirky. The views of Teignmouth are spectacular and the walk back from town, good exercise. Don’t expect perfect decor but is suits the house. We had a fantastic time.

        5/5 Excellent

          Wonderful location with stunning views.

          We stayed over the weekend to celebrate my wife's 60th birthday with our family. We loved the unusual character property and found everything was as described and a nice touch was the welcome pack. Would certainly look to stay again in the future.

          4/5 Good

            Great building with stunning views. Lots to do within an hours drive.

            Jenny and Gary kindly provided lots of information prior to arrival, even updating local fliers to give us tourist ideas! The property has everything you need. It is understandable that it's character is old, with lots of history, adds to the whole experience! We had an incident with the cooker, Gary and Jenny kindly offered to sort asap but it wasn't essential for us, but it is good that they are contactable during your stay if need be. Of note, I didn't realise where the border of the garden was (it is a semi-detached property), despite them placing a big notice in the hall. So unfortunately, had a run in with the neighbours after our dogs and kids were tearing about! Our fault though! Just forwarned for future stays. The views are really quite breathtaking, a real highlight to the holiday. Thanks for a lovely holiday, The Youngs.

              different, calm and relaxing with incredible views

              Wow to sum it up. This is a very old gothic style property which will never be forgotten. The beds are comfortable with lovely Damask duvet covers. The bedrooms are all clean and plenary of room. The top tower bedroom is a lot of stairs and is just a bedroom. So you have to go down for a wee but the views from this room are amazing. In fact they take your breath away. There is a view from every bedroom all breath taking. If you continue up the stairs you can walk out on the tower roof terrace. This is not for the faint hearted. It’s so high up but OMG the views from here make you feel like you are on top of the world. This is an amazing place to be. The lounge and dining area are very gothic in style with dark wood panelling and the old front door which is beautiful. The views from here are amazing. There are loads of board games and jigsaws and a massive dinning table. This room is cool even at 30 degrees which was wonderful. Because of the really thick walls. The kitchen is better stocked than mine. What ever you need is there I even found an electric whisk and muffin tins. The two fridges are brilliant so you can keep food in one and drinks in the other. The kitchen windows don’t appear to open but the bar lifts up. Wonderful selection of mugs. Downstairs loo is very old it’s like sitting on the throne in carved wood. Open staircase up to the next floor is lovely with an old stained glass window. First floor is stairs to tower bedroom. Stairs to 2nd floor not in to the tower a good Juliette bathroom with shower and loo and two bedrooms. Second loot is two more spacious bedrooms and a lovely bathroom with a shower with a view! Over all I had the most relaxing chilled out week and spent most of the time on the huge lawn celebrating my 50th. It was a great week. I can recommend the crab shack on the front too. Lovely old place. JG
