Pocket Guide: Dartmoor Castle Drogo Hotels

Devon is a county full of interest and charm, and visitors come from around the world to experience its wonderful attractions, including crumbling priories and castles, lovely seaside resorts and historic towns like Plymouth and Torquay. Amongst its famous old buildings are some real gems that are not all you may think them to be. One of best and most famous of these is Castle Drogo, which was actually built in the 20th Century.

Explore Castle Drogo from Devon Hotels

Built between 1910 and 1930 by Sir Edwin Lutyens, this splendid 'castle' was the brainchild of Julius Drewe, a successful merchant whose next step on the rung to gentrification was to have his own baronial pile. Lutyens designed a Tudor fantasy of a building for him, complete with barbican and battlements, and of course, a portcullis! All the granite used in its construction was quarried locally and the castle's foundations are dug deep into the hillside rock on which it stands. The bathroom, in fact, features exposed slabs of granite.

Enjoy a Mock-Tudor Folly from Your Devon Hotel

Castle Drogo is certainly a dramatic sight to behold. Perched on a rocky spur that towers almost 1,000 feet above the River Teign, you can get a superb view of nearby Dartmoor from its battlements. Although the castle has an intentionally forbidding aspect, its interior was designed with comfort uppermost in mind, and many of its exquisitely furnished rooms feature specially imported Spanish furniture. Although many visitors might shake their heads at the no-expense-spared attitude of Drewe in his drive towards self-aggrandisement, there's no doubt that Castle Drogo today make a fascination place to visit and has become a part of Devon's cultural heritage for all that.

Whether you're based in a local Devon hotel or guesthouse, or are just visiting for the day, be sure to drop in to Castle Drogo and enjoy a walk in its lovely surrounding gardens. These were designed by Gertrude Jekyl and are amongst the finest in this part of England, and there are very pleasant walks nearby along the Teign Gorge. Castle Drogo makes a great day out for the whole family.
