An enchanted woodland walk along a tree-lined path with sea views.

This year I was invited to a spring visit with a group of friends and was surprised at the flora and views. I walked along the tree-lined path for some time admiring the birds and... read more

This year I was invited to a spring visit with a group of friends and was surprised at the flora and views. I walked along the tree-lined path for some time admiring the birds and scenery, and later linked up with the group and walked back up for a meal in the restaurant. We had a great day out, and...

The pouring rain could not detract from the pleasure of visiting this architecturally interesting house with its unpretentious and stylish feel. Contents were not original but thoughtfully installed to reflect some of the spirit of the age, ranging from Arts and Crafts to Art Deco and beyond. There was good information about the D'Oyly Carte family who commissioned both house... More

No trip to Dartmouth and the South Hams is complete without a visit to one of our favourite National Trust places. This is an unusual house for when you tour the building you get the impression it is almost modern - built only around a hundred years ago for the Doyle Carte family after they saw the valley from their...

Not the most exciting house in the area if you like a story, but charming all the same. The garden is wonderful and views are fantasic though.

We have National Trust membership and go to a lot of NT properties- not always to the delight of our teenagers. This is something a little bit different. It is worth saying that the approach road is high banked and narrow with passing places and you may well need to reverse to let others along the road. The NT website... More

Visited in rainy weather, but we were welcomed into the National Trust owned 'time stood still' art deco themed interior rooms of a fabulous house! Times were not always joyous for the D'oyly Cartes who lived there, but the atmosphere had a simplicity, calmness and good taste about it. Would visit again.

Lovely place to visit. It was very wet today so not too busy. Gardens were hilly but lush and lots of different paths. Great coastal view. The house interior was fab. Well laid out and informative. Good cafe, reasonably priced. I drove there. The road is narrow but no worse than Dartmoor and not busy.

It was overcast and drizzled during most of our visit to Coleton Fishacre but it didn't matter one bit and even added to the feel of the location and its gardens. Coming suddenly on to the cove at the foot of the gardens, with waves breaking against the rocks, was quite evocative of how it must have been for the... More
