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 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).

Explore this year’s fashion exhibition ‘The Nature of Fashion' with intricately decorated pieces stitched, dyed and printed from natural fibres to catwalk fashion.

See the beautiful garden full of colour all year round - with rhododendrons, magnolias and rare trees surrounded by rolling Devon countryside.
