Killerton car park
Starting from the visitor car park, head towards the stable block to visitor reception. Once you're through here, turn right onto the main path towards the house, then first right, in the direction of the chapel. Stay on the main path and head up the hill (a steep incline). Please keep your dog on a lead in this area.
Follow the well-trodden path around the top of the valley and eventually you will see a wooden gate leading into a wood. Go through this and follow the path.
Carry on at the crossroads. At the top of the hill the path will go right, you'll need to leave the path and go straight on towards the metal gate ahead of you. Once through the gate continue straight on, crossing over a rutted track. Dogs can have fun off the lead in this area but sometimes there are cattle grazing, so please keep your dog in sight and under control. Continue forward and follow the path round to the left.
Keep following the footpath. Eventually it will split into two, take the path on the right. You can see Ellerhayes car park over to your right-hand side and the River Culm. There is a dog bin near the car park should you need to dispose of any dog waste.
The path will split again, this time go left up the hill. As you climb the hill the path will break, take the path on the right.
You'll come to a clearing and the path will split in three. Take the middle path up the hill. Keep on the path and carry straight on. Eventually you will have two wooden gates appear. Go through the one on the right. Once through, turn left down the hill through the field. If cattle are present please put your dog on the lead.
At the bottom of the hill on the left there is a wooden kissing gate. Go through this and carry straight on. You will be able to see the stable block and your starting point in the distance. Carry on past Killerton House and you'll see a wooden gate on the left. From here you can make your way back to the stable block for a well earned rest and cup of tea. Remember to put your dog back on its lead when you enter the main drive area.
