Top Spooky Places To Visit In South Devon
With Halloween on the horizon, what better time to round up the top spooky places to visit during your Beverley Holidays break. Take a look, if you dare…
Halloween Haunt 1 – Berry Pomeroy Castle
Located just a short distance from Totnes, Berry Pomeroy Castle is a 15th century ruin which is said to be haunted by two ladies – the ‘white lady’ and the ‘blue’. The ‘white lady’ is said to be the ghost of Margaret Pomeroy who was held captive in the castle’s dungeons by her own sister.
Take a trip to the castle which is open daily from 10am – 5pm until November and you might have an errie encounter of your own!
Halloween Haunt 2 – Torre Abbey Historic House & Gardens
Originally founded as a Monastery in 1196, Torre Abbey is Torquay’s oldest building, having witnessed, survived and played a role in some epic moments of history. It’s also one of the best surviving medieval monastries in Devon and so has had plenty of time to acquire a resident ghost or two. Its ‘Spanish Barn’, for example, is said to be home to ‘The Spanish Lady’ who according to local legend roams the barn in search of her lost love.
Be brave a head down to Torre Abbey House from 10am – 5pm on Wednesdays – Sunday throughout winter.
