Fantastic NT house and garden. Take the lower car ferry from Dartmouth and drive to it. Car parking is limited, but there is an overspill car park. Parts of it are very steep to walk around, but very interesting house.

The whole area is amazing not just the National Trust property. Which is compact but outstanding with amazing gardens. The views along the coastal path should not be missed and anyone up for a challenge can take on of numerous routes each of which challenge you in a different way And why not take a chill out time at the...

As normal with the National Trust this attraction is superbly done I do tend to think that they are having a bit of a laugh with the Cafe Prices £28.00 for two crab sandwiches and two glasses of wine perhaps they think they have relocated to LONDON

As others have said, this house perfectly captures the atmosphere of the era. And I think it's nice when you can glimpse life behind the scenes - in the kitchen, pantries and laundry. The chatty and knowledgable room stewards provided lots of anecdotes that help to see the place as it must have been to live there. Outside, the gardens... More

Very different as you feel like you've stepped back in time to the 1930s. Beautifully maintained and very helpful and knowledgable staff. Gardens are amazing with a wide variety of trees and shrubs from all over the world. Well worth a visit

Fantastic Art Deco house beautifully maintained by National Trust and then wonderful gardens to spend a day chilling out away from the normal hustle and bustle of working life. Mr Tremayne one of the volunteer gardeners was a delight to speak to and very informative. Warning to car drivers: please take care on the approach to the property which is... More

Absolutely marvellous house and gardens. I normally don't like the house as they are so stuffy but here I fell in love with the house. If I won the lottery I'd want to buy the whole place and keep ot for myself. Well worth a visit until I win the euro millions :)

Thoroughly enjoyed a visit to the gardens on a superb June day. The grounds are well maintained and a joy to wander round, including the coastal views. Enjoyed our snacks at the café, but it would benefit from a reorganisation to improve the flow of customers and minimise unnecessary delays.

I can't believe how much I enjoyed this. Visited at the end of June and everywhere I turned there was different shapes and colours. This is now my favourite place in England.

Fascinating property which allows you to get up close and far more personal than most Trust properties. I'm not a huge fan of Art Deco but this is tastefully done. The gardens are exquisite and worth a visit in their own right. We throughly enjoyed a lengthy stroll taking lots of pictures. Shame about the cafe though. The slowest service... More
