We know that many of you visit Devon to make the most of the wide open spaces, the sound of nothing but birds tweeting, and well, somewhere that’s unspoilt. At Escot Park you’ll find all of those things and more, as the owners of the park are careful to add, change and develop as little as possible.
This east Devon estate dates all the way back to Normal times, and it’s belonged to the Kennaway family for more than two centuries. Today, Escot is as beautiful as it’s been for hundreds of years, and it’s the perfect family day out. Lose yourselves in the Beech Hedge maze, wander sun dappled woodlands and watch the little ones enjoy the secret playgrounds dotted throughout the park.
There’s an indoor play barn aimed at small children, and the Coach House Restaurant provides fantastic food for the whole family. Picnics are welcome throughout the grounds if you’d rather fill a hamper with your favourites and take your time eating in one of the many picnic areas.
We promised all things natural at Escot, so it’s only right that you encounter some wildlife during your visit. Look out for the resident otters, wild boar and red squirrels. You’ll also come across the odd peacock and guinea fowl that are free to roam the grounds, so expect surprises during your visit. Escot is close to Ottery St Mary on the outskirts of Exeter.
