Our second visit to Cotehele and still very enjoyable, I coukd live here! The house is not too big and furnished in arts and crafts style. Lovely gardens too they looked good even in March. Worth a visit at any time of the year

The house is beautiful, but the gardens are wonderful with spectacular views. Well groomed although too early in the year to see them at their best.

This was our 2nd visit. The contents have been restored to what they would have been like originally, but they are not the originals. Very nostalgic if you are of a certain age. The walks in the grounds can be challenging but the view from the cliff path is amazing and worth the effort.

Never knew about this house and grounds before, but what a treat to visit it. The National Trust guides were all very friendly and informative. A well presented attraction.

Didn't know what to expect but I was bowled over by the opulent splendour. It was almost possible to glimpse the ghosts of the gay young things frolicking and being decadent in the magnificent gardens and splendid house - especialy the main Drawing room. It was a real treat.

We have been here quite a few times but it just gets better & better. Great shop & cafe & the house so interesting with the story of the family & the building of the house. The gardens & grounds down to the sea are wonderful. National Trust are doing a great job.

You have to admire the upper classes, they certainly know how to pick a great spot to build their country houses. Unlike many NT properties, Coletone Fishacre is quite modern, certainly inside, which is decorated in a fairly minimalist 1920’s style. Not totally to my taste but it’s fascinating to see. Best bit was the dining room and loggia –... More

Beautiful house, small so you don't need to spend all day here but you could do easily as you can lose yourself in the grounds. Beautiful gardens which lead out on to the coastal oath with steep climbs but if you're fit enough do it, fantastic views. First time doing NT with my husband (who's not a big fan) but... More

A truely magical place. It was very popular with the aristocracy and the likes of Noel Coward, and Gilbert & Sullivan. The house is a wonderful mixture of archtecture. Set is fantastic gardens overlooking the sea. It has its own eco climate. The family were keen botanists, and they collected plants and trees afrom all owver the world. There are... More

We visited in March on a sunny cold day. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. We walked down through the lovely gardens (the camelias and daffodils were in full bloom) and we walked to the coast path and took in the wonderful views. We then went the the cafe for lunch - there was a small choice of... More
