Over the summer we visited Killerton, a National Trust property near Exeter in Devon. Its a huge estate - one of the largest that the National Trust has acquired - and given away because of political beliefs by Sir Richard Acland. The NT website describes Killerton House as a "model of elegance" and inside it was beautiful and the sort of home you could feel quite at home in. But from the outside to me, it looked odd and quite boxy and very peach. However I soon forgot that as the views over the countryside were stunning and something you'd never tire of seeing.
