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.
