Devon Days Out – Killerton National Trust
Living in the South West we have beautiful surroundings and loads of things to do with the kids.
Since getting our lovely Labradoodle (now 3) a lot of our days out are places that the kids can have fun and the dog gets walked at the same time. We pack the car up with food, drinks, wellies, dog treats and plenty of pooh bags and off we go.
Friends of ours recommended Killerton ages ago but it was only on Bank Holiday Monday that we went for the first time, and it definitely won’t be the last.
Killerton is a National Trust Property with lots to offer.
It was a nice surprise when we arrived that they were hosting the Cadbury’s Easter Egg Hunt. So off we set looking for clues…..
You had to collect letters to make a word at the end to claim your Chocolate prize.
Amazing Outdoor Space
There are parts where the dog wasn’t allowed so Daddy did a bit of walking whilst we carried on the hunt and came across the Bear Hut where a real bear was kept by the family in the 19th century. The picture on the right was the walls and the ceiling inside the hut.
The whole place was beautiful with lots of places for Isabelle to stretch her legs and climb on.
We didn’t venture inside the house as we had Charlie, so we’ll have to make a trip back without him so we can have a look around and stay for tea and cake.
After hiding under a tree during a huge downpour with hailstone we found this low rainbow in font of the chapel.
All in all it was a great day and we’ll be going back again soon.
