Went on the way back from a day out, only because we have NT membership so it was going to be free. Pricey if you don't have membership. But what a lovely place! Beautiful house, kids enjoyed the 'trying on room', helpful volunteers, but my highlight would be the garden which is like a Cornish valley garden similar to Glendurgan... More

The gardens were really very good, no doubt helped by the climate and position here. One might envy those who could afford to have such a home by the sea but one should mainly be impressed by the industry & imagination which created this haven of beauty seen by us in its prime.

We hadn't planned to visit Coleton Fishacre but staff at a couple of other NT properties in the area raved about it so we changed our travel plans and paid a visit on our last day in the area. What a gem! The house is a simple but beautiful example of Art Deco and the gardens are stunning (but be... More

This was probably the best place we visited whilst on holiday in Devon. The house used to belong to the D'Oyley Carte family. It was a pleasure to go round this house. Although not all the furniture was original, the rooms had been refurnished according to old photographs, so that they were replicas of how they had been in their... More

the house was amazing and the room guides very knowledgeable and kind, one suggested we sit in the beautiful living room and listen to the jazz music playing to soak up the atmosphere. gardens perfect and the restaurant lovely with great food. NT places food varies quite a bit.

Coleton Fishacre is a beautiful place to visit. the garden is immaculate and as it was June when we visited it was also in full bloom! A lovely route around the garden which is slightly challenging to walk so beware : lots of hills! Have your cake and coffee after! The house is very interesting and the staff are all... More
