Castle Drogo & Grounds

Later on the same afternoon we saw Okehampton castle, we headed across to Castle Drogo, the newest castle in the United Kingdom, built in the 30’s by an eccentric family. In a perpetual state of repair due to the poor quality of the original building work, it is clearly a new building. The reason to visit however is the grounds it is set in, a beautiful combination of planned lawns, herbs and flowers, and wilderness it is worth an exploration.
