A day at Killerton

By | February 17, 2015

Today we decided to head over to Killerton, a National Trust house and garden we have wanted to visit for a while. The sun was shining so we were happy there were lots of things to do outside. The children found so much to keep them entertained!

The children had fun spotting the toy mice that had been hidden and I quite enjoyed the fashion exhibition but it’s not one of my favourite houses. I love seeing all kinds of rooms in stately homes but we didn’t get to see the kitchens, bedrooms or bathrooms which I often find more interesting than the library or music rooms.

    Perfect weather for such a great day out. Those cyclamen are quite something when they grow like that, and such a welcome sight in the winter………xxxx
