Knightshayes Nt & War Horse Valley Devon
Knightshayes NT & War Horse Valley Devon
Discover Knightshayes, a country estate on a grand, gothic scale. National Trust.
With acres of glorious gardens and parkland, surrounding a spectacular Gothic Revival house, Knightshayes is the complete country gentleman's dream.
The house is a rare example of the work of William Burges, whose richly decorated interiors have always inspired extremes in opinion. Full of quirks and curiosities, you can see gargoyles, corbels and a medieval inspired great hall.
The garden is one of the finest in Devon and its collection represents one of the most varied in the Trust; with over 1200 plant species unique to Knightshayes and riotous seasonal colour, it's always worth a visit.
Covering an area of just over four acres, the walled kitchen garden is another great highlight, brimming with seasonal produce for the Stables Café.
Then off to Parsonage Farm, Iddesleigh, deep in the Devon countryside to 'War Horse Valley' Country Farm Park. The farm around which the book War Horse by Michael Morpurgo was set. WW1 and War Horse exhibitions, miniature ponies, sheep and pigs. How we used to farm 100 years ago. Half mile circular walk along the farm trail.
Depart Approx. 17.00.
