The beaches at Mill Bay are a sheltered, sandy cluster of beaches situated within Salcombe Harbour, overlooking Salcombe town. They are accessible by car but the access route consists of very narrow lanes & there is limited car parking available (National Trust).

Berry Pomeroy Castle is tucked away in a steep wooded valley and is a romantic ruin with a colourful history of intrigue. Originally work started on the castle in the 15th century, beginning in around 1560 and being enlarged around 1600 with the intentions of being one of the most spectacular houses in Devon – to match both Longleat and Audley End. However, work was never completed and was abandoned by 1700. Since then, Berry Pomeroy Castle has become the focus of blood-curdling ghost stories – some of which can be heard on the audio tour that is available at the castle. The castle’s location is perfect for walkers who wish to explore local woodland or you could enjoy a light lunch or home
