I visited Coleton Fishacre at the end of June with friends. The house was simply beautiful - especially the drawing room. The attendants were very pleasant and informative without pushing themselves at you. Then we went into the grounds. Wow! We went at the end of the afternoon so didn't have sufficient time to explore properly but it was fantastic.... More

Stunning setting and views. The house is lovely and the gentleman demonstrating the gramophone was particularly memorable. A real enthusiast with interesting stories and it helped to set the age of the house and the time. The gardens are lovely and while not so accessible for some who might find the climb from the cove difficult, the views from the... More

Every visit here is a life-enhancing experience. The gardens are stunning. The house is.... well, I could just move in tomorrow; it's my favourite National Trust house by a mile. The volunteers who offer information are particularly friendly and helpful. The restaurant, which has indoor and outdoor seating, serves very good home-produced food at reasonable prices. I can't imagine a... More

As members of the National Trust we regularly visit Coleton Fishacre, sometimes the house and almost always the gardens. As the seasons change the garden brings new surprises every time. It is a very hilly site, especially if you wander the grounds, but as it is set in a valley leading to the sea, so that is to be expected... More

The house and gardens are well worth a visit if you are in the area. The house is big enough to explore without being too big so you get bored. The gardens and views are beautiful.

Hadn't planned on visiting here but as National Trust members thought we'd go. All of us ( 2 adults and 2 children age 8 and 11) had a great time. The children enjoyed the trail through the house and we enjoyed the house and the history of the Doyly Cartes.

Beautiful house well worth visiting if you , like me, love art deco furniture and design. The house itself is beautiful, situated down very narrow country lanes so care with the driving but well worth the effort. The house was owned by the D'Oyly Carte family, past owners of the Savoy, Claridges and the Connaught, as well of course as... More

It’s no wonder all the reviews to this National Trust gem give top marks. Although the house is a little off the beaten track it is fairly easy to find and a sat-nav will take you straight there. Ample parking which is free to members and every effort is made by the staff to assist in finding a space during... More

We discovered Coleton Fishacre when we joined the National Trust recently and whilst in Devon used their mobile phone app to locate nearby attractions. The description looked interesting so we thought we’d give it a try. The app didn’t prepare us for what a wonderful day out was ahead of us. On arrival at the car park we were welcomed... More

This is a very nice property to visit. The gardens are beautiful and the house reflects the Art Deco period. We had the pleasure of visiting on a lovely summers day and saw the gardens at their best. The house reflects the time period and someone playing the piano really added atmosphere! Well worth the visit.
