Killerton visitor reception
From visitor reception turn right and right again uphill past the chapel grounds.
At the crossroads, continue straight on and go through the black metal gates on your right following the sign to Deer Park and The Plains.
Continue straight ahead onto a wide path that is the historic carriage drive, crossing over a track and continuing straight ahead through the Deer Park.
Bear round to the left to a kissing gate, passing the bench overlooking the local hamlet of Ellerhayes. Go through the gate and follow signs to Park Wood. Continue along the carriage drive, passing under The Clump and The Plains.
Where the paths meet, follow the sign left towards Deodar Glen, heading uphill. Keep walking until the path forks, then take the smaller path to the right.
Keep following signs to Park Wood. Cross the 19th-century deer park pale, a stone-faced ditch built to keep deer in the park.
Bear right at the junction. Emerge into a valley reaching a bench. This is Deodar Glen.
With the bench behind you, go straight uphill to a kissing gate. Turn left along the path through another kissing gate to The Plains, home to ancient trees, including two giant redwoods that stand guard over this landscape. Continue ahead following signs towards Deer Park and follow the track down to a gate.
To the right is an old quarry. The exposed rock face is volcanic lava now stained green with mosses and lichens. The rock here was used in buildings around the estate.
Bear right, following a path towards the black metal gates. To return to where the walk started follow the sign to Stables Café and Shop. Alternatively, if you aren't walking your dog, you can turn right after the gate and continue on this path to Rookery Gate to reach the garden and house.
