Hotels near the Totnes Castle
Dominating the upper end of the town, Totnes Castle is a classic example of a Norman motte-and-bailey castle. Walk the battlements of this English Heritage castle and take in views over the River Dart and towards Dartmouth, Dartmoor and beyond.
Originally built by Judhel, the Norman overlord of Totnes, the castle has dominated the town for hundreds of years. The once-great surrounding ditch is filled today with cottages and gardens.
