Autumn at Castle Drogo


In autumn the Teign Gorge takes on an incredible transformation. From the forests in the valley, to the borders in the garden there is a variety of flora and fauna making the transition away from the vibrancy of summer. Although this cold weather makes most of us want to cosy up at home, a few of you can’t wait to get out there and capture the amazing scenery changing before us. Here are some of our Instagram favourites showing off Castle Drogo’s awesome autumnal views.
