Stayed in the Garden Wing.Thoughtfully equipped for self catering, crisp white sheets, lovely fluffy towels, spotlessly clean. Big Georgian windows with real shutters, log fire, lots of books and games. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. We spent the weekend walking the beautiful gardens and grounds, blackberrying in the lanes and sitting in the secluded garden outside the Garden Wing reading and watching the butterflies in the lavender and stasis flowers. Tiverton has a shopping centre with M&S food hall and Saturday market. Killerton NT property is well worth a visit.
