DAFFODILS, a pirate, free gifts and preserving Exmouth's A la Ronde for future generations attracted scores of visitors to the attraction's Heritage Day.
The unique house threw open its doors to the public over the weekend and encouraged people to leave their cars at home by offering free gifts to those who used green transport.
The heritage open day followed the theme of 'treasure forever' and pirate captain Jack Sparrow showed visiting youngsters how to make treasure maps.
Visitors also made light cards to measure the effects of sunlight on objects, and learned how the property cares for its treasures.
