There's a lot going on this February half-term from Wild Tribe to an animal tracking trail around the garden.

Children's trail

This half-term at Castle Drogo you could pick up a poo and paws trail from visitor reception and follow it around the garden to claim your prize at the end. (£1). The trail is all about animal tracking and what to look out for.
