Join us! These days we’re back to dreaming of Devon and spending our Lutyens Intensive exploring Lutyens’s Castle Drogo – out from under wraps after a £11 million restoration project with a new roof the size of two soccer pitches, 60,000 meters of repointing, and 913 refurbished windows. Located in the middle of the evocative landscape of Dartmoor, the refurbished Castle Drogo will be a memorable experience showcasing Lutyens at the height of his architectural prowess.

Lutyens’s works around Devon include:

  • Castle Drogo
  • Mells
  • Mothecombe House
  • The Drum Inn
  • Littlecourt
  • 3-8 Venn Hill
  • The Pimple at Tavistock
  • Hestercombe
  • Exeter War Memorial

We’re working on an itinerary with as many of the above as possible, as well as special experts and behind the scenes tours of Castle Drogo and the surrounding buildings and gardens,  And, we’ll throw in a few additional surprises.

Our headquarters on the Flete Estate will be minutes away from Mothecombe House. Awaken each morning to views of the Pamflete Valley. Stroll to the Mothecombe beaches at the mouth of the River Erme. Enjoy the two acres of gardens. Surround yourself with Lutyens during the day and return to the Flete Estate each evening for dinner and fireside discussions with distinguished guests.
