Today was a little bit of an adventure . As national trust members we love to explore their properties . Today’s choice castle drogo !
Quiet : it is a quiet area perfect for walks and they even allow dogs which is great for you pet lovers . The grounds do expect you to look after the property so please do not litter ! There are a couple bins near the cafe and shop .
Accessible?: there are disabled parking and as I have learnt from my grandmother being disabled not all places are easy access despite them saying they are ! However here it is and it’s perfect grounds for a walk
The gardens :- I believe this is my second favourite gardens . Gorgeous flowers are around in this early May time and it’s kept up well .
Toilets , shop and cafe : unfortunately we did not buy anything today there however donated some money towards the gardens . The cafe was busy and we recommend that you take your own food to avoid waiting in a queue. All staff were lovely and we will definitely be coming again
The castle: the castle is the last castle to be built in the uk and is currently being renovated so your future generations can still see it . The inside is lovely .
Overall rating : 10/10
Easy to drive too? : do not use aa route planner . I’d use a different source as it’s a bit off from Exeter and the roads are narrow so if you have a big car I would not recommend you drive down there. On the way back why not stop off at killerton house … I didn’t feel upto it today but we’re planning to go in the next few weeks
