Castle Drogo, nr Drewsteignton, Devon
Have a relaxing Devon day out at Castle Drogo (NT), the last castle to be built in England. Made of glittering granite and perched high above the Teign Gorge, there are dramatic, almost endless views across the Teign Valley. Stroll around the formal gardens with woodland walks and see the miniature Bunty House; explore the Teign Gorge by bike or on foot, go on a high tech treasure hunt, or a nature spotting trail. Peek around inside the house and marvel at how this used to be a family home, then enjoy cakes and tea in the café.
Open: All year between 10.00am-5.00pm NB: The castle is undergoing a conservation project due to finish in 2018, so there may be scaffolding up during your visit.
