About Killerton

Walking towards the handsome Georgian property known as Killerton House, you get only a hint of the surprises awaiting you inside.

The house itself, is of gracious proportions with a foliage clad exterior and beautiful bay windows. It was initially erected in the late 1770's for the Acland family, but is now in the hands of the National Trust who have used their expertise to make the house a rewarding experience for every visitor.

Killerton House contains an extensive collection of period costume, the grounds surrounding the property were laid out around 1800 by John Veitch, the emphasis here is on many rare trees set on sweeping lawns. The hillside garden features Magnolias and Rhododendrons. Visitors are welcome to walk in the grounds all through the year, when every season brings its own special delights with a continuous rainbow of ever changing colour.

For this season the National Trust have arranged a dazzling collection of gorgeous dance dresses, glittering evening wear, and elegant accessories, from Killerton's period costume collection. With the renewed interest in dancing, this display is of interest to everyone, especially the females of the family - however young!

To add to your further pleasure there in an informative visitor centre which brings to life the history of the house and its surrounding environment.

The garden is open all the year round, this has plant centre where you can buy produce grown in peat-free compost.

Killerton House is open to the public throughout most of the year - opening commences on March 15th.
For this season the National Trust
