5/26 Stables and Coach House garages
approximately loom North of Castle
Drogo
GV II


Stables and coach house, garage. Circa 1930, probably by Luytens. Brick walls
faced with coursed blocks of granite ashlar; brick stacks with granite ashlar
chimney shafts; slate roofs.
Plan and exterior description: 3 ranges around a courtyard open to the north-north-
west, say north. The long range backs onto the forecourt of Castle Drogo (q.v) to
the south. This range is broken through by a carriageway which divides the stables
and coach houses into 2 assymetrical L-shaped blocks. All the blocks face into the
courtyard. The largest is the coachhouse garages in which the long (north-facing)
block contains a regular row of 5 large plank doors with large strap hinges. Short
crosswing to west is a 2-room plan workshop with axial stack which has a doorway to
left with a clock above like a half dormer with hipped roof. To right a timber
casement containing rectangular panes of leaded glass. The stable wing contains a
2-room plan grooms cottage on the corner with axial stack. The crosswing here has 4
stables each with a plank stable door and overlight like a half dormer with hipped
roof. All the roofs are gable-ended.
Interiors: are largely original and though plain built to a high standard.
The coach house and stables/garages are part of the original scheme of Castle Drogo.
