Last week I met some friends at Castle Drogo, before travelling on to Cornwall with them to stay in Newquay for a few days.
Castle Drogo is one of the most bonkers places I have ever visited. Unfortunately the house was shut but you can see some photos of the interior if you go to the # Castle Drogo Instagram page
It was built between 1911 and 1926 as a family home?!
What were they thinking!
It looked like a prison or a workhouse to us.
Trees mask the glorious views to the moors as you walk around the house.
There are two magnificent arbours. We were not sure what variety of tree they were but my best guess was a type of birch.
My favourite tree was this magnificent maple, what a colour!
with its twisty moss covered trunk.
After lunch in the cafe we drove the hour and a half to Newquay.
This is the view from the apartment we were staying in.
Oh happy days!
