This extraordinary castle of granite and oak was built by Sir Edward Lutyens between 1910 and 1930 and is thought to be the last castle built in England. You can get a fascinating glimpse of Victorian life both above and below stairs, visiting the dining room, drawing room and kitchen. The house is surrounded by gardens including a formal terraced garden and a huge circular croquet lawn, which you can use by hiring equipment from the reception area. There are scenic walks along the 300 foot gorge and down to the nearby River Teign. There is also a Restaurant and Tea Rooms for refreshments, a children's play area, shop and plant sales, and facilities for the disabled.
