Flowers, Flowers, Flowers!

If you like gardens, this is a must-see, simply beautiful. Take your time to go down to the coast, it's worth the way. The House is very interesting, too.

The house at Coleton Fishadpcre is a gorgeous family home from the 1920s and 30s. It really feels like stepping back in time. Every effort has been made to make the house feel like it did in its heyday. There is a very sad family back story to the place, but it doesn't feel sad to walk around it. Whilst... More

We enjoyed a tour of this quirky dwelling before a pretty challenging walk to Kingswear. The staff were pleasant, although many of the rooms were surprisingly small. I liked the lounge and study best. The gardens are nicely laid out, but the lawns weren't in very good condition.

What a fabulous place to visit, the house has a wonderful atmosphere with fantastic attention to detail, the guides/volunteers are very welcoming and informative. The gardens are a joy to wander round with many unusual specimens stretching right down to the costal path and small cove beyond, also plenty of room on the lawns for a picnic, there are even...

Wonderful setting and intriguing art deco house. Lovely walks around the garden right down to the sea. Until tragedy struck, obviously a house full of style and music.

If you decide to explore the West Country (Devon) don't miss a visit to Coleton Fishacre. It was the holiday home of the D'Oyly Carte family who had the wonderful foresight to create an amazing English country garden leading down to the sea. It is a blaze of colour and a myriad of greens. The garden took almost 10 years... More
