Allergen information

If you have an allergy or intolerance and would like ingredient information about the food and drink served, please ask the staff, who will be happy to help.

Always check when you visit

Visited before? We sometimes change our recipes to improve quality and flavour, including the ingredients. When you visit, please speak to one of our team to check the current allergen information for your favourite dish.

Thank you

Every cuppa or tasty treat you buy helps us to continue looking after places for everyone to enjoy.

Shopping at Killerton

Inspirational gifts

Inside the National Trust shop at Killerton, you'll find an abundance of gifts, homeware items and tasty treats, all inspired by the places in the Trust's care. Take a look at our selection of locally crafted items to bring a touch of Devon into your home.

Food, glorious food

Most of the food in the shop is made by small, artisanal producers using the finest, carefully sourced ingredients. Look out for our selection of gins, including the locally made Salcombe gin; it's a firm favourite for a seasonal treat or gift.

Perfect plants and presents

The shop also sells a range of horticultural gifts, gadgets, books and tools. There are also garden sculptures and accessories that will add interest to your flowerbeds.

And don't forget to check out our selection of green and flowering plants in the courtyard – some will have been grown by Killerton’s own garden team. Pick up something to add colour and texture to your garden, or as a gift to delight a green-fingered friend.

Budding explorers

There's lots of goodies for our younger visitors, from ‘50 things to do before you're 11¾’ items to nature diaries and water bottles.

Second-hand Bookshop

Take the opportunity to try a new author, or you might just find that out-of-print book you've been searching for. There's also a selection of children's books to browse.

All the money raised from the sale of second-hand books helps to care for Killerton.

We're able to accept small donations of good quality books over the counter in the second-hand bookshop. If you have a larger amount to donate, please contact our friendly team who can arrange a suitable drop off time and location on: 01392 881345.

Thank you

It is through your purchases and support that we are able to continue to care for nature, beauty and history for everyone, for ever.
