Six of the best places to play
There are all sorts of places to play at Killerton, from woods to parkland. Here are six of the best places to play when you visit, but the opportunities for a fun and playful visit are endless.
1. The Clump den building
After an adventurous climb up to the top of the Clump - the highest point at Killerton - you'll find a den building area where you can test your skills.
2. Sparrow Park
Two fallen veteran trees are a great place for clambering and climbing. Look out for big fungi growing on them in autumn and winter.
3. The fallen red oak
If you follow signs for Deer Park you'll come across a fallen red oak on a hilly outcrop. It has been turned into a great play area with a rope swing and places to climb and scramble. With a fantastic view over the Devon countryside, it's also a perfect place for a picnic.
4. Swings and slacklines
Keep your eyes open for swings and slacklines as you explore the park. We often move them to new places, so ask in visitor reception for their latest location.
5. Park Wood den building
The more adventurous visitor might enjoy a walk to Park Wood where they will discover a secluded den building site. It makes a great place for a family afternoon creating the perfect forest shelter.
6. The lost house
It's an adventurous walk to the lost house but a great place for young imaginations and budding archaeologists.
