Shaldon Castle, Teignmouth

10.6 miles away – TQ14 0BH

The sweeping slopes of Homeyard’s Botanical Gardens give captivating views of the world below. From the top of Mrs. Homeyard’s gardens, you can admire the Teign Estuary, peer over the river to Teignmouth town, and appreciate the beautifully rugged Jurassic coast. The castle ruin is not the only enticing feature. The witch’s cave, a small grotto made of Torquay limestone, is said to be where ‘Old Mother Gum’ comes down from the woods at dusk to take tea.
