Our activity centre is based at Escot Park – An Amazing Location with easy access from the A30 & M5.
Escot House is a Georgian stately home that occupies an ideal location close to the A30 and just minutes from Exeter, yet in an idyllic rural setting well removed from the bustle of urban life. The three beautiful function rooms overlook 250 acres of tranquil parkland. They enjoy an abundance of natural light, and two open directly on to the terrace and lawns overlooking the lake.
The facilities can be offered on an exclusive basis, so you can be sure that your delegates will not be distracted by meeting members of the general public or another organisation. If you prefer to keep your meeting confidential, Escot is the ideal venue.
Our catering is in-house and enjoys an excellent reputation. As a private venue, we can react with total flexibility to our customers’ particular requirements, and we offer good value for all bookings, large or small. At Escot we pride ourselves on understanding the crucial importance of providing an environment and service which allow delegates to focus totally on the topic of the day.

The roots of this East Devon estate lie in Norman times and it has been the home of the Kennaway family for over two hundred years. The Escot of today is a place of great natural beauty, refreshingly uncommercial, it offers visitors a great family day out.
Enjoy the world-class Beech Hedge maze, explore the woodlands and discover hidden playgrounds. Test your nerve on the Forest Dropslide and meet our cheeky family of otters, wild boar and red squirrels. Younger children will be thrilled by the indoor play barn and everyone will enjoy excellent home-cooked lunches and snacks served in the Coach House Restaurant. For those that wish to enjoy the Devon countryside there are plenty of picnic spots and quiet places to admire the views.
Known as the natural place for very good reason (you will meet peacocks and guinea fowl roaming free) we provide sanctuary to endangered species including beavers, water voles, dormice and of course red squirrels. Our education department has an excellent reputation and runs courses and activity days to inspire children to discover the natural world – and to get very muddy! We are also home to Camp Wild – a children’s residential and day camp at Yurt Village which is so much fun most don’t want to go home!
