Would you give away your family home for your political beliefs? Sir Richard Acland did just this with his estate, at 2,590 hectares (6,400 acres) it is one of the largest the Trust has acquired (it includes 20 farms and 200-plus cottages).

Killerton House, built in 1778-9, brings to life generations of the Aclands, one of Devon's oldest families. See this year’s fashion exhibition ‘Objects of Desire’ designed and guest-curated by renowned interior designer Russell Sage.

The masterpiece of Killerton, beautiful all year round, is the garden created by John Veitch - with rhododendrons, magnolias and rare trees surrounded by rolling Devon countryside.
