Having never been before to the property , it was lovely to visit on such a sunny day. A warm welcome from the staff in the car park and entrance started my journey firstly with the house. As the house is built in an arts and crafts design it was surprising to find the interior to be all Art Deco.... More

We visit here 2 or 3 times a year as it is one of our favourite National trust properties locally. Our most recent trip was over the Easter and with great weather we were able to really enjoy the gardens. Because they slope down towards the sea in a sheltered valley it means the gardens are able to sustain many... More

My favourite National Trust property. The house is a magnificent example of a family livable property with fabulous gardens and walks. You can just imagine the family and friends enjoying the facilities as if it was yesterday. Very good.

Much younger than your typical NT property, but it makes a nice change. The house is less than 100 years old, and is none the worse for that with the lovely Art Deco style interiors of that era. If you visit on a grotty day, you can spend a couple of hours in the house, shop and cafe, but make... More

This is new house by NT standardsonly built 1920/30 but belonged to the D'Oly Carte family. Art Deco house, beautiful gardens and view. Nice cafe but only medium sized so it gets busy. Approach roads very narrow, single track. Avoid Newton Abbot for time being if travelling past there,road works causing long delays, pick alternative route. Cost is about £10... More

We have visited this property on several occasions when in Devon and it never fails to delight. The journey there takes you on some narrow lanes with passing places so take your time! Once there, the carpark is well laid out with easy access to the visitor centre which leads into a pleasant courtyard with a small plant sales area... More

This is a property with stunning gardens, tucked away a few miles East of Kingswear and we visited on the same day as Greenway which is just a short distance down the road. The valley garden is very well kept, and I'd imagine you'd need a number of hours to explore every one of the paths. Similar to other gardens... More

This place is a must and what a stunning property with amazing grounds. My husband and I took a trip the day after we had visited Greenaway and were concerned it would be similar, but were wrong. The house and design is very in keeping with how it would have been in the day and each room had a folder... More

This beautiful National Trust property is stunning. Set in fairly remote location between Dartmouth/Kingswear and Brixham. The house has a wonderful atmosphere about it and it easy to imagine what it must have been like - has a very "jazz age" feel about it. the star of the show though is the fantastic grounds and gardens leading down to the...
