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.

One of the best national trust properties we've ever been to, something for all ages. The gardens are fantastic and offer both formal and woodland styles. Well worth a visit!

Good National Trust property

Interesting house and gardens, even kept the kids going for two hours.

Flaming Tar Barrels (6 ¼ miles)

17 wooden barrels are coated in tar, set alight and carted shoulder-high through the streets of the town. Yes, on fire. It’s been a tradition since 1605-ish and probably started to brace the town for the imminent invasion of the Spanish Armada.

Amazing!

This really is a spectacular event. The atmosphere is electric as locals hurtle through the streets with the flaming barrels hoisted onto their backs. Thousands of people come to witness the tradition each year - if you don't like crowds, then this is probably not the event for you, but you can take refuge by the huge bonfire, which has to be one of the largest and most impressive in the South West, if not the country.

Tiverton Castle (8 miles)

Originally built for Henry I, this castle encompasses 900 years of history. Worth a visit to see the romantic ruins and beautiful walled gardens and you can book a stay through Classic Cottages as there are several cottages and apartments available. Tours can be booked in advance, with limited availability.

A really nice place for children to visit, very hands on. Visitors can try on Civil War armour, see the medieval loos, learn about the 900 years of history, the ghosts, secret passages; beautiful garden. Very moderate admission prices, and excellent value for money. Free visitor parking inside.

The Bear Trail (1 ½ miles)

A must do activity if you don't mind getting covered in mud! Welcome to an obstacle course in a field of mud where you and your family challenge yourselves. Don't forget to take a change of clothes and trainers are better than wellies which just fill up with mud.
