For all lovers of nature and the great outdoors, Escot is a unique experience and offers a great family day out. Set in 220 acres of stunning private parkland in the heart of East Devon, Escot is a refreshingly uncommercial, award-winning visitor attraction that you will want to return to again and again.
Home to the Kennaway family for over 200 years the Escot of today is setting new standards in recreation with its exciting open access red squirrel encounter where visitors can get up close to these adorable creatures, world-class maze, birds of prey displays, otters and wild boar, unique (and scary!) woodland drop slide, saxon village, indoor playbarn and woodland play areas. There's an intriguing letterboxing trail to try and delicious home-cooked food in our Coach House Restaurant. Known as the natural place for good reason, wherever you go at Escot you will see peacocks and guinea fowl roaming free and maybe the odd chicken or few! will cross your path too. The magnificent champion trees and woodland paths through daffodils, bluebells and rhododendrons are truly beautiful in springtime but whatever the season there is always some aspect of nature to catch your eye and make you stop and wonder for a while. Open all year, we hope you will enjoy the views, the beauty of the park, its quirky playfulness and will leave delighted, inspired and wanting to return again.
Escot - there's a natural surprise waiting around every corner.
