different, calm and relaxing with incredible views

  • 5 of 5

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.

A really interesting house for a family holiday.

  • 4 of 5

Plenty of space and a very interesting building to stay in. Great views of Teignmouth and beyond. Worked really well for an extended family to stay. Was comfortable and had a well-equipped kitchen; we had everything we really needed. We could have done with another bathroom, and the decor is a bit tatty here and there, but that's OK for our kind of visit.

We enjoyed Teignmouth, Paignton - especially the zoo, train-rides including steam-driven, Dartmoor and many local walks. It is up a steep hill from the town and beach, but that's what gives it the great views.

Responses from the owner were fast and reliable; sorted out one minor glitch very promptly and helpfully.

Beautiful house, once a castle but now split into 3 properties of which I stayed at number 1

  • 5 of 5

Very charismatic house, beautiful furnishings. Tower a little spooky with a resident ghost called Gerard who liked to become noisy in the tower at night. Beautiful views of the sea. Walking distance to Teignmouth town centre. Dog friendly with a lovely garden although this is not secure so best not to let a dog off lead in it if they have poor recall skills (like my beagle). Would definitely recommend this to friends.

I booked to stay here for my partners 30th birthday, everyone was impressed with the venue as the house & view is breath taking!

I've never stayed in a castle and it looked so impressive, and the views and the grounds were amazing! Child, adult and dog friendly!

Inside has the old features to give you that Gothic feel, however shower, kitchen, tv etc was all modern! So you got the best of both worlds!

It was a 10 min walk to the town and beach, which was handy as everything was on your doorstep.

Thank you for a lovely stay, and were definitely be back!

Jade :)

Very good weekend

  • 5 of 5

Arrived on the 4th November for the weekend our first impression was very good ,it was well equipped for all 10 of us ,very good ambience ,the views were worth the climb up the spiralling stone steps to the tower even us less fit managed to climb them too.

We had lovely weather which helped although there was plenty to do indoors , we took a murder mystery game which we played on the Saturday evening ,but there were murder mystery games there along with plenty of other games for all ages.

We did Tesco & a takeaway order, their drivers (local?) had problems finding it although all of our 4cars found it easily .

We all agree we'd definitely would like to go again so Jenny & Gary you'll be hopefully hearing from us next year

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
