Devon is truly a place of history, myth and legend. From one end to another, there are countless tales of hauntings, often based on folklore, often based on fact. This tour gives guests the opportunity to learn about some of these stories, and to see the evocative places in which they are based. We visit the ruin of a 15th Century castle, an 800 year old inn, a church with a difference, before heading up to Dartmoor to hear about some of this National Park’s most iconic and spooky tales!

Stories of witches, suicides and hairy hands will have you enthralled, and just the atmosphere of some of the places, regarded as being amongst the most haunted of their type in England, will send shivers down your spine.

During the day we will also be driving through some beautiful scenery, giving guests ample opportunity to take photographs of the spectacular views. We can take a walk or two, and lunch will be had in a characterful old inn, with more than its fair share of apparitions! To soothe the nerves at the end of the day, a traditional Devonshire cream tea will be on offer, and then we return you to your accommodation in time for you to rest and recuperate!
