Visited last summer. We were absolutely captivated. The house was beautiful & furnished just like the occupants had just popped out for the afternoon. It made you feel like you wanted to move in & change nothing. Beautiful gardens & the walk down to the cliff tops to see the sea view was worth the climb back up. If you... More

This is a lovely National Trust property (my favourite) and was decorated for Christmas with candles and a tree. The house is 1920's so is a good option for families and there is a dressing up room. On a good day you can wander down to the cliffs and overlook the sea or take the cliff path to Kingswear.

Fascinating house which was wonderful to walk around. The gardens were wonderful and especially enjoyed the stroll down to the cliff edge to admire the view. Will return.

The National Trust opened Coleton Fishacre in the run up to Christmas. Thw weather wasn't the best for enjoying the garden wit its magnificent sweep down to the sea. However there was a pianist playing in the house. She chose music specific to the time of year and to the inter-war period when the house was at its peak. We... More

What a beautiful hidden gem this was, lovely garden and walk around and then into the house. Just a great day. Take care if you have a dog though as you have to stay to the outside path

Beautifully appointed delivering an insight into life in the 1920's The d'Oily Carte family were very fortunate to have been able to live in this magical part of Devon. You can see the house and immediate gardens in a little over an hour but half a day would be better in order to explore the gardens properly.

The immediate impression was that I could live here exactly as it is, a perfect reminder of a wonderful period without being over the top set in a perfect valley. The house is well worth a visit and the guides are as usual very knowledgeable.

National Trust property at its best. Wonderful property, homely feel, art deco throughout. Top floor now open, so if you haven't been there for a couple of years it is well worth another visit. The gardens run down to the private beach, so wear comfortable shoes, a little bland in December, but the buds and young plants bode well for... More

One of the best places we visited from the National Trust. The setting, the views, the gardens, the walks, and the house were all memorable. Well worth a visit. The docents were very well trained and friendly. We would love to go back again.

We went on an Autumn afternoon and really enjoyed looking round the house. The gardens and stream running through the garden were beautiful. It was worth the walk down to see the sea and a bit of a climb back up with a pushchair. It was a shame that some of the gardens were cordoned off as it would have... More
