Experience Castle Drogo

Witness the majesty of the past ages by heading to National Trust’s Castle Drogo in Exeter, Devon which makes its claim to fame as the “last castle to be built in England.”

Surely both children and the older ages groupers will delight in the ancient lore of not only the castle itself but the surrounding area that included the Dartmoor National Park. You will want to start off by exploring the treasure that is bestowed upon us by Sir Edwin Lutyens and in turn take a tour through the expansive rooms and living areas.

Nothing short of stunning will greet the walls and subsequent interior décor with all of the lavish items one could expect of Castle Drogo.

National Trust’s Castle Drogo is not only beautiful inside but out, and you will want to then take a moment to be captivated by the grand view of the Teign Gorge and then head outside to the National Trust garden. A folly of flowers and no shortage of greenery wait to be smelled and bedazzle your eyes.

Once you’ve gone out trekking and worked up an appetite you may want to quell any thirsts or hunger pangs at the Castle Drogo’s charming tea room. There you will find plenty of treats for your palette, and upon the end of your visit you will want to stop by the gift shop to forever remember the time well spent.

Castle Drogo will again be reopening on the 14th of February for you to come enjoy and experience from 11 am to 4 pm and you will no doubt want to scoop up the family and head out to a time and place prominent in England’s history.

  • Castle Drogo is a country house near Drewsteignton, Devon, England. It was built in the 1910s and 1920s for Julius Drewe (businessman and founder of the Home and Colonial Stores) to designs by architect Edwin Lutyens, and is a Grade I listed building.

  • We had a fantastic visit to this property. The grounds are wonderful and the property itself is inspiring. Don’t forget to visit the lovely tea room.

  • Really nice day out for the entire family at this property. The castle is beautiful and the grounds an absolute pleasure. Best of all for us though were the wonderful informative staff who couldn’t do enough for us and told us so much about the history of the castle.
