Park at Chagford Lido, access the footpath through the farmyard. Keep the river to your right for a lovely walk across the fields and then into the woods of the gorge. When you reach Fingle Bridge, on the ridge above you to the north east is Prestonbury Castle, on the ridge above you to the south is Cranbrook Castle and a little under two miles further east along the river lies Wooston Castle, which are all Iron Age Hill Forts. Here you can stop at the eponymous inn before crossing the 17th century stone bridge and head back on the opposite bank before crossing again near the path up to Castle Drogo.
