AboutIn an oustandingly pictureque setting above the rushing River Okement stands the remains of what was once the largest castle in Devon.
Begun soon after the Norman Conquest as a motte and bailey castle with a stone keep, it was converted into a sumptuous residence in the 14th century by Hugh Courtenay, Earl of Devon, much of whose work survives.
After the last Courtenay owner fell foul of Henry VIII in 1538, it declined into an, allegedly, haunted ruin. Take an audio tour around the site and hear tales of a bygone age as you explore the former home of one of Devon’s most powerful families.
After your visit, don’t miss the riverside picnic area and woodland walks nearby.
