We’ve all done it…sat there watching the presenters on Countryfile getting stuck in to an outdoorsy activity like building a campfire and thought “I wish I could have a go at that”, and thanks to the rangers at Killerton House in Exeter – now we can!
The rangers at the National Trust’s Killerton House are running Countryside Wednesdays throughout the year, and that means everyone’s welcome to volunteer for the whole day or just a few hours and have a go at something different. You could be doing anything from picking apples to burning charcoal, but it’ll be outdoorsy, great fun and you’ll be fully supervised so it doesn’t matter if you’re a complete novice. Just make sure you call Emma to book before your visit on 01392 881345.
Killerton’s one of Devon’s many National Trust properties, and it sits at the heart of a landscaped garden and a gorgeous country estate. With one of those gardens that’s always a mass of colour no matter which season you visit in, Killerton’s home to gorgeous views of Devon’s countryside.
The 18th century house welcomes visitors all year round, and it’s actually one of the biggest country estates in the National Trust’s care, so if you’ve yet to tick it off your list then you can time your visit for a Wednesday and make for an extra special experience.
