India tea baron Julius Drewe's dream house. This granite castle, built between 1910 and 1930, is one of the most remarkable works of Sir Edwin Lutyens and combines the grandeur of a medieval castle with the comfort of the 20th century. A great country house with terraced formal garden, woodland spring garden, huge circular croquet lawn (equipment may be hired) and colourful herbaceous borders. Standing at more than 900ft overlooking the wooded gorge of the river Teign with stunning views of Dartmoor and delightful walks.
