Castle Drogo

Exeter, Devon

The last castle built in England, Castle Drogo is a magnificent modern fantasy in granite, built in the heart of Dartmoor by Sir Edwin Lutyens for the India tea baron Julius Drewe. Inside it feels comfortable, sophisticated and personal. Outside there is a large and beautiful formal garden and glorious walks through the 700-acre estate that includes the wooded gorge of the River Teign.

Discover the beautiful Lutyens-designed terraced garden with dramatic views of Dartmoor. There’s plenty to see from the rose garden to the quaint Bunty House (Wendy House) complete with its own miniature garden.

Below the castle, you can follow the winding paths into the sheltered Teign Valley. Explore this ancient gorge, teeming with wildlife as you follow the trails along the river.

Recharge at the café with a traditional Devon cream tea or tuck into a slice of cake. At our gift shop and plant centre, you can pick up a wide range of plants, books, cards and locally produced food.
