Drewsteignton, Nr Exeter, Devon
The 'last castle to be built in England', set above the Teign gorge with dramatic views over Dartmoor. Family activites every day of school holiday (April-Oct). There is a cafe, a shop and picnic areas. Open daily from 11am-5pm (closes every other Tuesday so its best to phone ahead and check).
We strongly recommend you ring Castle Drogo before you set off on your family day out, to make sure they are open and to confirm admission prices. It may also be worth visiting the website for Castle Drogo, www.nationaltrust.org.uk, to see if there are any special events on the day for which you may have to book a ticket. Please also be aware that if Castle Drogo hosts birthday parties, this may limit the access in the cafe/restaurant areas.
