Loved this. We've been 'doing' castles this summer and this is up there. Fantastic location, excellent audio guides and fascinating site.

Tudor history plus more recent additions to a defensive castle set in beautiful trees with lovely views across the valley. I'd go again for sure.

Spend a good few hours with the audio going around the castle in what had some interesting details so well worth going if you like castles

Second visit to this castle. We went on Thursday afternoon and the castle was nearly empty...just two or three other families around. This castle is more of a ruined stately home with some defensive towers. There are some fantastic views and lovely architecture to look at as well as some interesting and innovative gun slots. The guided commentary was very... More

We took our 2 daughters here. Found the place no problem and free parking! Nice little cafe for a quick ice cream. Toilet was a bit dodgy but perfectly use able. The head phone tour was very interesting and enjoyable. Our girls were a bit spooked but had a great day. Probably not worth a return visit as nothing will... More

Down some very narrow country roads, through a bit of forrest, you arrive at a free car park and an impressive castle front. We had a nice slow walk round dipping in and out of the audiotour. The ruins of the castle are interesting, atmospheric and beautiful. A very enjoyable couple of hours. Many of the 'rooms' don't have a... More

Visited this castle on a beautiful day and thoroughly enjoyed the site which was greatly enhanced by the audio tour. Learnt a lot about its history and the history of the families who lived there. Set in wooded area it was a short walk from the car park and a great way to while away a couple of hours. Not... More

Absolutely loved our visit to Berry Pomeroy Castle. A bit out of the way, down some VERY narrow roads but worth the effort. From the front just looks like a ruined old Castle & indeed really that's what it is. But once you get your ticket from the reception office & pick up your Audio guide then your visit becomes...

Hidden among the many winding roads and valleys of south Devon you will find this little gem. Just the drive alone adds to the atmosphere. A good visit in high summer an even better visit on a cool drizzly autumn day. First and foremost Berry Pomeroy is a ruin. Don't come here expecting grand staircases and afternoons in the drawing...

This is a nice castle ruin and relatively quick visit. Our kids enjoyed walking around, seeing the guns and peephole. The scene was peaceful and a nice visit. There was a story of a girl who was killed because of love... A fun addition to the experience.
