It was CLOSED for Christmas decorating .. no signage to this effect in the car park so visitors who were not NT members would have totally wasted their money! Even the café at the house was shut. Really feel NT are missing a HUGE trick....More

Always visit \Killerton on our NT tickets. Love the trees, love the house, one of our favourites.. not too busy, always plenty of space to walk and not see a soul.

Killerton gardens and surrounding woods are so lovely to walk around. Whatever the weather you will not be disappointed. We ended up in the cafe after a rainy day walk for a hot bowl of soup, coffee and a cake to warm up. Bliss!

Visiting Killerton in a howling gale, our party explored the house and the cafe. The house is interesting, with its history of a family involved on both sides of the 'Votes for Women' campaign in the early 20th Century. The extensive grounds would be wonderful...More

The house is full of volunteers eager to explain the story of the suffragetes and the anti-suffragete movement. Well planned path through every room. There are lots of toilets.

Yes. You pay for parking, then pay to get into the grounds (and house). The parking fee gets you only into the cafe for free

Hi, There are costumes from other periods as the exhibition also explores how women's dress has changed since some women gained the vote in 1918. Best wishes, the Killerton team.
