Glorious landscape garden surrounded by parkland, fine 18th-century house with renowned historical fashion collection

Would you give away your family home for your political beliefs? Sir Richard Acland did just this with his Devon countryside estate. At 2,590 hectares (6,400 acres) it is one of the largest the National Trust has acquired (it includes 20 farms and 200-plus cottages).

This years fashion exhibition 'The F Word: the changing language of fashion' launches in February. Explore how revolutionary innovations in fabric, cut and fastenings have changed the shape of fashion for ever.
