Attraction details
Owner description: One of Devon’s great estates, Killerton was given to the National Trust by Sir Richard Acland because of his political beliefs. And now it's yours to explore. At Killerton, you can discover the history of Aclands in the relaxed atmosphere of the friendly Georgian mansion. Upstairs, you'll find an annually changing fashion exhibition. The gardens at Killerton are renowned, with blooming herbaceous borders and patches of wild meadow. Winding paths lead you to hidden treasures, from the ice house and bear's hut to chapel. The Killerton estate is vast. Off the beaten track, you can discover Deodar Glen, an ancient iron hill fort, Danes wood and Ashclyst forest, a top butterfly site. There's also three hidden gems on the Killerton estate to discover; a postcard perfect old post office, a working mill and medieval hall-house. A visit to Killerton isn't complete without a stop off at Killerton's award-winning restaurant, where you can sample tasty treats made from local homemade produce. The shop, plant centre and book shop are perfect for picking up gifts.
