A beautiful house and gardens

We visited in June 2015 and had a lovely visit. Gardens are excellent and the house and contexts are exquisite.

We are just completing a photo book of last year's UK holiday. We saw many houses and gardens. Remembering our visit and reviewing photos of Coleton Fishacre has been a joy. The garden and house are superb. So pleased that it is in the ownership of the NT allowing new visitors and succeeding generations to enjoy it. A special experience!

Stop over for lunch wit the grandchildren who really enjoyed this house and the handling room. The staff were very friendly and really brought the house to life.

We visited for the Coleton Aglow event on 30 December and despite the fact it was blowing a gale and bucketing down with rain the illuminated gardens were truly magical. Coleton is always beautiful at any time of year but this was the first time we had visited after dark. Hope they repeat the event in 2016!

This is a great NT House and Garden that is less known and probably less visited than some of it's more well known counterparts but it is an absolute gem, the house is like stepping into the 1920's and is really interesting throughout, we have taken family members of all ages here and they have all found it enjoyable.

We visited the house and garden today for the Garden Aglow Christmas event. The house is decorated throughout, and it was interesting the see the contrast of home-made decorations in the servants quarters while the rest of the house is resplendent with high quality trimmings. The gardens are lit at 4pm and the crowds of families were enjoying themselves in... More

Coleton Fishacre is so atmospheric. When we arrived the grand piano was being played. It was genuinely like stepping back in time. A wonderful time traveller's experience, with phenomenal gardens. Allow plenty of time for these.

Wow. We've been many times during daylight but this event tops it all. So much work went in to creating this display as the whole valley had been lit up. Photos don't do it justice. My advice, start the walk by going down the steps after you leave the Gazebo that looks over the valley towards the sea. We found... More

A lovely house and gardens which is well worth a visit. The house is beautifully decorated and I always feel that I could move in tomorrow! The cafe provides good quality food and on sunny days it is very pleasant to eat outside. The garden too is beautiful and well tended.

Think I'm going to win the lottery and live there for the rest of my life and drink G&T on the terrace, in the early evening sun.
