We travel full-time as a family and I've just started blogging and freelance writing with no set place to call home, I'm now sharing my family's adventures online. Please visit my blog at www.timetowalkabout.com

Watch out for the cows in the fields
Killerton house built in 1778 by Sir Thomas Acland with ownership passing to the National Trust in 1944.
The estate has over 6,400 acres of land, eighteen farms and two hundred and fifty cottages.
There are many different walking trails all around the estate each with a varying degree of difficulty and accessibility, and there is something for everyone with maps and trail instructions that can be downloaded from the website making it easier to pick a trail that suits.
Some of the trails include: -
Acland Walk, which is buggy friendly and follows surfaced paths
Two Chapels Walk, this goes along the riverside and thru the woodlands on what can be rough and muddy terrain so unsuitable for pushchairs.
Tree Walk takes you among the ancient woodlands on rough terrains.
There are also many dog-friendly walks and some that take you thru the wider estate taking in villages and cottages.
While you walk around the estate, you will come across some of the farms and orchards within it that produce a wide range of products such as flour, cider, apple juice, dairy and meat all of which help to keep the estate sustainable.
The old manor house has many interesting artefacts throughout and exhibitions around the building that change over the year so you may find some new and interesting displays each time you visit as we have each time we've managed to visit.
