Our work

Getting on two wheels

This video made by the local primary school in Broadclyst was made once our cycle track was officially opened last year.

The children use the path as a regular gate way to the estate and have even starting using it as part of their PE lessons. See for yourself the family friendly route from Killerton to Broadclyst.


Every day the house team do their regular conservation checks. Daily tasks include looking for pests, checking light levels and delicately cleaning the collection. Every second Monday of the month see the team in action.


Every year, when the fashion exhibition is taken down, each dress is carefully inspected and cleaned by the costume team to ensure this beautiful pieces are preserved forever for everyone to enjoy.

Using local

Killerton estate is home to nearly 20 farms. The restaurant team and the wardens work very closely with the local farmers, using their produce in the kitchen and promoting their work at the monthly farmers markets.

Community farm
