GOTHIC CASTLE WITH AMAZING VIEWS, MEMORABLE SELF CATERING HOLIDAY COTTAGE

Teignmouth Castle Rental Photos and Description

A taste of grandure with lots of character views over Shaldon estuary

Lovely listed castle folly said to be styled on Balmoral and recently converted for holiday rental. Many unique features and lots of history; Vivien Liegh was a regular house guest here.

Outstanding sea and estuary views from every window. A short walk from Teignmouth town centre and sea front and easy driving access to Dawlish, Shaldon, Torquay, Dartmoor and Exeter plus many other south Devon attractions.

The property has plenty of space with 5 large bedrooms, 3 double and 2 twin beds. Please note the tower room is accessible by a two story spiral staircase. It has fantastic views and a unique character but can be difficult for elderly or disabled people to access.

Two bathrooms, one with steam shower room. Large garden and ample parking.

Large lounge diner where you can sit and eat dinner overlooking the sea.

A delightful and unique place to stay.

The kitchen and bathrooms are all new but the character and features are all original.

We are continually upgrading this luxury accommodation and always welcome comments and suggestions from our guests.

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5
Booking easy & professional, property just as described, amazing views - easy to find and access, warm & welcoming - we were a family group with teenage children but would equally suit adult groups. Great base for travelling around, coastal trips, trips to Dartmoor - town easily accessible. All in all a fabulous stay - would thoroughly recommend

Comfortable and Great views throughout

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at Yannon Towers. Seriously, it was one of the most memorable places we've ever stayed on a vacation. It was comfortable, plenty of space, and overall, it had everything we needed. It was close to the train, as well. We didn't need to rent a car (although we did). There were a lot of stairs, but I chalked that up to making it even more memorable. We would definitely stay at Yannon Towers again.

Birthday weekend with murder mystery.

  • 5 of 5
A fantastic venue for a get together. The building has a lot of character and of course offers the opportunity to have your morning coffee in a turret overlooking a stunning sea view.

Apart from the turret, the castle offers some special touches, like a steam shower with a radio mp3 player, a welcome basket of tea, coffee and local fudge, board games galore and stunning views from every window you look out of.

We hosted a murder mystery on the Saturday night and it was the perfect setting. The rest of the time we spent exploring the local area where there is lots to offer in the way of coastal walks, small independent shops and we were lucky enough to stumble across a St George's day Morris dancing celebration.

We were only there for a weekend but made some very fond memories and we were all sad to leave.

Cannot recommend enough.

Many thanks.

What an amazing place!

  • 5 of 5
I have just returned from a weekend where 10 of us went to stay Yannon Towers (The Castle) where we were celebrating 3 25th birthdays. I would just like to say what an amazing time we had, the castle was beautiful and made such a difference to the usual cottage setting that we tend to go for.

The castle is magnificent and whilst not Disney the turrets, high ceilings and sweeping staircase did make it feel a little magical! We all had a fab time, it was good to stay somewhere that catered to all of us e.g. enough double and twin rooms for the mix of us. Having arrived at 11pm we spent a while exploring each of the rooms and the view in the morning was such a gorgeous sight to wake up to. We stayed in the cream double room on the first floor which was charming as was the view from all of the rooms - all 10 of us were very happy. The tower room was great as was the view from the very top of the turret.

The fittings & fixtures are all clearly brand new and the multipurpose shower/steam room was good. On the Saturday we all walked into Teignmouth and despite the unforgiving October weather walked along the seafront and enjoyed fish & chips & ice creams on the beach. I fully recommend dabbling in a bit of crazy golf which has a very nicely maintained course. In the evening we had organised to do a murder mystery which was further brought to life by the castles atmosphere and charm - a definite must if you are having dinner in the castle and want it to be a bit different.

Altogether an amazing weekend, I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone.

A very special place to stay

  • 4 of 5
Fabulous views and interesting rooms. An unusual and special place that is big enough for ten, but cosy at the same time. We loved the turret room and the sunsets from the top. But you need a good head for heights.

It was clean without being fussy and everything worked.

Teignmouth is a friendly lively place. Recommend going by ferry to Shaldon and walking along the cliffs or through the smuggler's tunnel to the beach.

Would love to go back for longer.

Fantastic stay in an authentic castle!!

  • 5 of 5
We went to stay at Yannon Towers for a long weekend (8 adults and 2 small kids!!)

We are all friends from uni & go away annually - this was our first try at something different and we were absolutely blown away by the castle!

You wouldn't expect to find something so grand and when you first enter the castle it takes your breath away!

Many of the fixtures and fittings are clearly brand new but it has a magnificent old charm, it felt enchanted. We ended up staying in more than planned just because we all enjoyed the atmosphere so much.

We all loved it & will definitely be going back!
