Overview

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.

Stopped in on our way down to Cornwall, and what a treat. The house is a very manageable size to be able to take in the content, including an excellent exhibition on the Suffragette movement. The gentlemen who welcomed us into the house was very...More

Very nice building. Would have like to known more about the people that actually lived there and the type of furniture that they would have used. I think another visit is in order next year to see who the people were.

A wonderful display of the suffragette era; clothes, opinions, history and the divisions that the movement caused in society. From today's perspective we wonder what the fuss was about, but clearly it was a cause that galvanized women to fight for their rights and Killerton...More

A fantastic national trust property. Admittedly I didn't go and see the main house my first time there, as I was mainly there to try out one of the walks around the estate. Top marks to the visitor centre staff member for being so enthusiastic...More

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.
