A Day at Escot
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. Marvel at the falconry displays and stunning birds of prey. Meet rare red squirrels in our new walk-through enclosure, negotiate the fantasy woodland and the knee-trembling forest drop slide if you dare! Lose yourself in the world-class Beech Hedge Maze and follow the clues in our intriguing letterboxing trail. For those rare occasions (!) when the great outdoors turns wet you can always seek shelter in the indoor play barn or why not treat yourself to a delicious Coach House Restaurant cream tea or lunch.
Escot is known as ‘The Natural Place’ for good reason. Peacocks and Guinea Fowl roam free and threatened native species such as the secretive water vole have found sanctuary in our surroundings steeped in history and filled with plants and magnificent champion trees. There are woodland paths to wander, quiet picnic spots with great views to enjoy and natural playgrounds to discover. Visit Escot soon - there's a natural surprise waiting around every corner.
