Four stunning bluebell woods at Killerton

With acres of woodland, the Killerton estate is a great place to see bluebells bring the woods to life. Here are 4 of the best spots.

1. Columbjohn wood

A bit further out from the garden, and past the big picture frame is Columbjohn wood. It stands on a long thin ridge with some great views to the south, west and north, and is full of wildlife during April and May. Off the beaten track, it's a perfect place to take some bluebell pictures.

2. The garden

It's no secret escape, but the garden at Killerton has some amazing areas for bluebells. Search them out in the shade of the conifers on the higher slopes.

3. The Clump

It might be a climb to get there, but it's always worth it as the Clump gives great views of the Killerton estate and beyond. Recent conservation around the Iron Age hill fort has made the hillside even better for bluebells too.

4. The Chapel grounds

If you're in a hurry or not up for a hilly walk then the Chapel grounds is the place to get your seasonal fix of bluebells. They'll appear along the paths and you can get a cracking photo with Killerton chapel in the background.
