Best picnic places at Killerton
Feel the grass between your toes or find shade under a canopy of trees. There's plenty of perfect places for an outdoors feast at Killerton; here's four of our favourites.
Bring a blanket for the gardens or take advantage of the picnic benches in the orchard to enjoy your al fresco feast. All picnic spots are open to the elements so you can enjoy the fresh air and sounds of nature with your lunch.
1. The garden lawn
A great place in beautiful setting of the garden. On the main lawn, little ones can roll down the hill, or there are plenty of quieter spots to find.
2. Sparrow Park orchard
Just a stone's throw from the main car park, you'll find picnic benches scattered among the apple trees. It's full of wildlife all through the year, and is dog friendly, too.
This quiet corner of the estate is full of history. Columbjohn Chapel enjoys a riverside setting and the banks are an idyllic spot for a picnic. It's about a half an hour stroll from visitor reception - follow the below walking trail to find it.
4. Deodar Glen
This secret valley was originally designed to resemble an alpine scene, and takes its name from the Deodar cedars that were brought here from the Himalayas. The glen has amazing views of Dartmoor, and is a great place to escape the world for a bite to eat.
