A guide to the West Country from the people that know…

Lydford Castle

The castle was built in 1195 AD at a cost of around £35. Further alterations were made during the 13th Century. It was used as a prison and a court of law during the Middle Ages and even in its present condition modern day visitors can still get a sense of its intimidating past!

Free attraction which makes a nice change!

Just upriver from the spectacular gorge and next to the lovely parish church is the English Heritage site. Lovely views on top of the mound.
