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.
Devon has the largest collection of tourist attractions per square mile than anywhere else in the UK & Ireland. There is literally something for everybody. One of those many attractions and one that also has something to offer everyone is Escot. On the day that I visited here, I had only planned to stay for a couple of hours as I had planned to see two other attractions all in the same day, that didn't quite turn out how I had planned. I spent a good four hours at Escot and had I not pulled myself away I could of easily spent longer here. With a multitude of outdoor activities, amazing woodland walks and not forgetting falconry displays, Escot is a nature lovers paradise. Escot is the first attraction that Ihave been to in three years where you can book a Segway experience and I couldn't imagine anywhere more perfect for the job- Top 100 Review
