How to Get There
The nearby village of Berry Pomeroy and of Berry Pomeroy Castle itself is easy to find and is well signposted as you approach Totnes. The best way to find the castle is to start from Paignton Zoo and travel towards Totnes. As you go across a large crossroads keep travelling forwards towards Totnes but as the road starts to bear left after the speed camera take the small road that cuts off just to the right (there should be a 'Berry Pomeroy Castle' brown sign pointing to it). Keep travelling straight down there, keeping on the straight road until you come out at a crossroad that intersects a busy two-way main road. Turn left here and travel down towards Berry Pomeroy village. Now, keep a keen eye on your right because there's a very sharp turning that bends back almost 180 degrees and is quite hard to see if you're not looking for it. This is a short, windy road. As you drive up it you should soon see a couple of houses as the road bears right. Turn left at these houses and in front of you will be the gate entrance to the Castle grounds. Just drive down this and you'll get there. Be wary - these woods you drive through are said to be haunted...
