A fantastic spot for walking with dogs and/or children, Danes Wood is part of the Killerton Estate. To find the main car park you follow the signs for Killerton (through Broadclyst on the B3181) and then drive straight past Killerton’s main entrance on your right. When you reach a fork take the left side and the car park is clearly signposted on your right.
The car park operates on a £2 donation basis – there is a secure box by the information board. There are also dog bins here and further round on the walk. The nearest toilets and cafe are at Killerton’s main entrance.
You can’t really get lost as the site is bordered by the lanes that you arrived by so even if you stray off the main track you can work out roughly where the car park must be.
It’s a wonderful spot to look for wildlife and the bluebells are amazing in spring. If you have any fairy enthusiasts there are lots of possible sightings and homes!
