Abbotskerswell castle description

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.
