About

Castle Drogo is situated high above the Teign Gorge. It was designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens for self-made millionaire Julius Drewe. It looks ancient, but this remarkable building was only constructed 100 years ago, the last castle ever built in England.

From the beginning it has suffered from water penetration and has for the last 8 years been undergoing a conservation project to make the Castle watertight.
As the building work comes to an end the interior of the castle has been redisplayed after years in storage. Once reopened, you can explore the castles refreshed layout, discover its precious treasures, fascinating stories, and unique history.

Outside the castle, stroll around the formal gardens, alive with colour throughout the seasons. Or explore the Teign Valley with its ancient gorge, teeming with wildlife. There’s a variety of routes to suit all abilities.

No visit is complete without a stop to recharge in the café, serving traditional Devon cream teas and many more seasonal and locally sourced options.
