Free parking and walk for dog

We couldn't go in as we had the dog with us, but the car park was free and there's a nice woodland walk off the car park where dogs can walk off the lead. Nice setting and surrounding countryside.

Beautiful gardens!

The gardens are the jewel of this property, with many different areas; woodland, formal garden, meadow, parkland and a stunning restored kitchen garden which provides produce for the lovely stables restaurant. Highly recommended and really easy access from the M5.

Very impressive

As my partner is a pilot it was inevitable we would need to visit the airfield.... usually these places are quite basic and food is obligatory greasy spoon type fare....but not here in Dunkeswell! Very impressed and very helpful staff. Food great and very reasonably priced too and dogs are welcome. The location of the outdoor seating also means you get an excellent view of aircraft both landing, taking off and parking up....

Killerton House and Gardens (7 miles)

A fine example of 18th Century architecture, Killerton House is home to a vast collection of period costumes - 9,000 items in all - spanning the fashions of the past 200 years. The gardens are the star of the show at Killerton. Beautiful all year round, they put on a wonderful display of rhododendrons and magnolias, set against the backdrop of Devon's rolling countryside. Open-air theatre is hosted here during the summer.

Steaming!

We visited this on a 'steam-up' day which I recommend. It would be interesting at any time as there will be few Victorian-era factories with so much of the original machinery still in place. However seeing and hearing all the machines clacking away, feeling the heat of the massive boiler and seeing (and smelling) the massive steam engines moving overhead really brings the tough lives of Victorian factory workers into close relief. Steam engine buffs will be in heaven but plenty for history enthusiasts. What wasn't explained was why anyone would choose to wear puttees instead of socks... Be aware that it does get really busy on steam up days so get there early.
