  • Was nice for a wonder, doesn't take long to go round, so could be seen add quite expensive if not a member of the National Trust.  more »
  • Lovely place to visit. Doesn't take too long to walk around. Staff were very knowledgeable and easy to converse with.  more »
  • This is the first National Trust property visited that did not have a Tea Room! There were only a few rooms open to the public, the gardens were in dire need of a gardener and the information booklets...  more »

  • Beautiful property and the children enjoyed playing the games on the lawns. Luckily as NT members we didn't pay for entry as I do not feel that it would be worth the entry fee as there is not a great deal to see. Good for a quick visit.
  • Although it is well looked after, there is not much to do here. Realistically you will struggle to spend more than two hours here, regardless of the age of your party. It is a beautiful building though and we'll worth visiting if you are passing (when it is open).
  • Interesting medieval castle small but sweet. Small garden surrounding and historical connections with Sir Waltef Raleigh.
  • Small castle quite decent to have a look around but not really worth the £7 ish that you pay to get in, would recommend Carlton Fishacre which is just a few miles down the road.
  • Went to Easter egg hunt which was lovely but didn't take a long time! We are members of NT so didn't pay entry fee

Where to stay in Paignton

A room near the harbor provides a view over the water. However, a historical cottage outside the town center may be the ideal getaway. A cottage offers seclusion, within walking distance of the town's main attractions.
