More About This Title Castle Drogo


This granite fortress, commanding panoramic views of Dartmoor, was built between 1910 and 1930 for the self-made millionaire Julius Drewe, and is one of the most remarkable works of Sir Edwin Lutyens. The interior combines the grandeur of a medieval castle with the comfort of the 20th century. The terraced formal garden has an established rhododendron and magnolia collection, spring bulbs, summer and autumn flowering herbaceous borders, rose garden, shrub garden, and circular croquet lawn. There are delightful varied walks through the River Teign Gorge.
