A family home and a great estate. Glorious landscape garden surrounded by parkland with fine 18th-century house
Would you give away your family home for your political beliefs? Sir Richard Acland did just that with his Killerton Estate in the heart of Devon, when he gave it to the Trust in 1944. Today, you'll find a friendly Georgian house set in 2,600 hectares (6,400 acres) of working farmland, woods, parkland, cottages and orchards.
There's plenty of calm space in the glorious garden, beautiful year-round with rhododendrons, magnolias, champion trees and formal lawns. You can explore winding paths, climb an extinct volcano, discover an Iron Age hill fort and take in distant views towards Dartmoor.
Off the beaten track, you can discover three of Killerton's hidden gems. Nestled by the River Clyst sits Clyston Mill, a working watermill. In the heart of Broadclyst you'll find Marker's, a medieval house steeped in history, and just a stone's throw away from Killerton House is a 1950's post office with charming cottage garden.
This year, we’re fixing the leaky roof and carrying out vital conservation work to the exterior and interior of the house. Everything is open as normal, except for the first floor and annual fashion exhibition, which is normally displayed upstairs. The fashion exhibition will be back in 2018.
Yes, dog friendly. Dog walkers welcome around the park, dogs to be kept on leads around livestock
