Me and my partner visited Berry Pomeroy on our way home from a short break in Darmouth. We spent two hours exploring the castle and following the audio guide. There was much more to see than we were expecting and the castle is set in beautiful surroundings.

A magical haunted castle/house (don't visit at night!). Staff very helpful and friendly. The café was lovely serving delicious coffee. I would recommend a visit as it reasonably priced.

Great value castle, and good to explore for an hour or two. Interesting information on the castle's history is provided and there is a little wooden café which offers a good range of food and drinks. Friendly staff and ghosts too (allegedly). Tucked away down a wooded lane, but plenty of parking is offered as well.

Visited the castle on a Sunday with only a few people about. This is a great place to visit . Complete with an audio tour you can wonder through history and enjoy the explanation of one of Devon's most famous families. Although we couldn't take our dog in there are some lovely walks in the woods all around the castle.... More

We visited today a lovely place set in a secluded valley, we had an audio tour and as there was just a handful of people there it was really eerie walking round this amazing castle imagining how it used to be ghosts Included

We visited on a sunny Sunday in August. Us young'uns took the tour of the castle with the aid of the audio-guide while the aged Ps enjoyed the delights of the café! The castle and it's history were very interesting, especially that of the Tudor period (lots of intrigue and politicking) and it was fascinating to hear of the rise... More

Berry Pomeroy Castle/Mansion doesn't stand proud on top of a huge hill, so it's easy to find. It's actually off the beaten track, down some extremely narrow little lanes but really is worth the effort to find it. We visited in the second week of September, fairly early in the morning (around 10.30am) and basically had the place to ourselves... More

This site is organized by English Heritage so be certain to take your card with you. It's a mile or so away from a minor road but has a couple of passing places with adequate car parking near the entrance to the castle.There is a small shop and also a cafe and toilets, We did not sample the food but...

This castle is well located for views from the outside and a walk around the nearby countryside. This time I didn't go in, but I know from before it certainly has a haunted feel and that one of the towers in particular experiences lots of ghostly activity! This time we sat outside and had a picnic in the shadows of... More
