Coleton Fishacre is a rare treasure in the National trust collection, a place one could move into if you'd only remembered to bring your suitcases with you. The lived in feel of the place and the positive yet unobtrusive staff sets the standard for the visit. If you like the simplistic, beautiful and practical lines of Art Deco then this... More

This must be amongst the most fascinating houses we have visited. The architecture of the house is stunning and its location so beautiful with river views and well kept gardens. The guided tour of the gardens was really good and the guide so knowledgable about plants we learned so much. But what a house .......can't sing its praise enough!

Wow. What a amazing place. We had been on the go all morning so our first stop was the cafe. We had a cream tea each which was very, very good and not overpriced at just over £4.00. We were then lucky enough to be in time for the garden tour taken by a volunteer which lasted about an hour.... More

We love this tourist attraction. You can spend a good few hours just wandering through the gardens, and the house is really interesting.

Tucked away from modern life this property and gardens are a real gem find. The house is wonderful and not like a lot of the other National Trust properties we could easily believe that we could live here. It was very homely and welcoming throughout. The gardens are extensive and some of the views are exquisite. You will find bananas... More

Lovely day, lovely gardens. Visit spoiled by experience at cafe. Had to queue 25 minutes to get coffees in a queue of about 8 people blocking the entrance to the cafe. On leaving the cafe with my coffee on a tray impossible to avoid customers still queuing in the entrance and consequently half my coffees ending up in the saucer... More

This was the home of the D'Oyly Carte family, who were noted for their company which performed Gilbert and Sullivan operetta's. The house is very much as it was lived in and in the Art Deco style. The garden is superb and on various levels, which are very walkable. The herbaceous garden is a real treat. It has a small... More

We went to Coleton Fishacre on the way to Dartmouth for a family weekend and it was well worth the visit. The house is in an absolutely stunning location with incredible views out to see and a lovely 20 minute stroll through the tropical hillside gardens on an easy path - fabulous views. A must-see if you are staying in... More
