National Trust - Castle Drogo
Castle Drogo was the last castle to be built in England. It is a dramatic castle overlooking the Teign Gorge, undergoing a conservation project to make it watertight. Nothing is normal.
Tedburn St Mary lies amidst the rural charm of inland Devon, just 3 miles from the stunning Dartmoor National Park and 7.5 miles west of the cathedral city of Exeter. The main streets of this award-winning village are lined with traditional thatched cottages, two good pubs, with The King's Arms Inn dating back to the early 1600s, and a well-stocked shop. Tedburn St Mary also offers the Tedburn Fair, held every September, stone-built cottages, a Methodist church built in 1930, a Methodist school room, which dates back from 1859, an 18-hole golf course and a monthly farmers' market. Close by is Dartmoor National Park, which is home to the Dartmoor pony and offers excellent walking, pony riding, golfing and pretty villages that are scattered amongst the dramatic landscape, plus the area has become an inspiration to many artists and writers. The city of Exeter is within driving distance and boasts beautiful architecture, theatre productions and plenty of shops, eateries and cinemas. Other attractions close by and well worth a visit are the Crealy Adverture Park, the beaches at Exmouth and Teignmouth and the National Trust properties of Castle Drogo, Killerton House and Lydford Gorge. Tedburn St Mary is a fabulous holiday destination.
