Killerton House and Gardens

Would you give away your family home for your political beliefs? Sir Richard Acland did just this with his estate, one of the largest the Trust has acquired (includes 20 farms and 200-plus cottages).

Killerton House, built in 1778–9, brings to life generations of the Aclands, one of Devon’s oldest families. The gem of Killerton, beautiful year round, is the garden created by John Veitch – with rhododendrons, magnolias and rare trees surrounded by rolling Devon countryside.
