Curator's choice: Five must-sees at Castle Drogo

I am very lucky to be the Curator for Castle Drogo as I have a particular interest in 20th century architecture, art and design. I remember visiting Castle Drogo for the first time, in the 1990s. I loved the ground-breaking architecture and design by Edwin Lutyens, the eclectic collection brought in by the Drewe family, the exquisite gardens and the breath-taking views of Dartmoor. Here are some of my favourite must-sees at Castle Drogo:
