# 9 Killerton House and Gardens

What a lovely day it was yesterday, bright and sunny and quite warm in the afternoon after a chilly morning.

We packed a picnic and drove down to Killerton House and Gardens in Devon. We had a great time walking in the garden, exploring the woods and visiting the house in the company of a guide in Victorian costume.

I especially enjoyed walking the woods because the colours were amazing and the views just breathtaking.

After Killerton House we followed the footpath to nearby Budlake Post Office. This was the post office that served both the house and the local community until the 1950s and it's full of memorabilia from the time.

As usual I took lots of photos and below are just a few. To see them bigger just click on them.
