Castle Drogo

It's prominent position looming over Dartmoor. Set in 12-acre formal gardens overlooking the Teign Gorge. High above the ancient woodlands of the Teign Gorge stands Castle Drogo. 

Inspired by the rugged Dartmoor tors that surround it, the castle was designed and built by renowned 20th-century architect Sir Edwin Lutyens. The castle has recently come to the end of a major conservation project, making it watertight. 

Outside the Lutyens designed garden is colourful in all seasons, and there are miles of pathways to explore in the Teign Gorge. Castle Drogo is the last castle to be built in England now owned by the National Trust.
