As regular visitors we find that Coleton Fishacre never disappoints. A lovely house in a very human scale. Lovely gardens with wonderful sea views. A good tea room and shop, with good quality plants on sale in season.

Of all the NT houses this is my favourite - I'd move in tomorrow! I think this is the loveliest house in England. Kids loves exploring the house and garden using the treasure hunt sheets. Coffee and cake was tasty and the walk to the coast path and view of the bay sublime.

As an Art Deco fan I thought I'd died and gone to heaven! What a place. It just felt as thought the family had popped out and everything was just as they had left it. I could imagine myself living there. Fabulous and so well presented. Gardens were lovely and you could walk all the way down to the sea.

We went to Coleton for the Christmas Garden Lights and it was beautiful, what I was also really impressed with was that their café being National Trust had a range of gluten free foods. I had a beautiful mushroom soup with a gluten free roll which was actually amazing (need to find where they source them). Great to know of... More

We go to Coleton Fishacre every season as they change the accessories in the room to suit. The staff are very knowledgable and attend to you as though you are a house guest arriving for the weekend...I wish!

2015 was brilliant, and I thought could not be topped.....I was wrong, more illuminations than ever, all the way around the circular pathway. Where there were dark spots, stewards were there with torches to guide the way........it was superb beyond words......only slight downside, for me personally, I preferred the house decorations last year, the Mikado theme this year didn't work...

This is such a beautiful place. The house is a wonderful art deco building with lovely interiors and is set in fantastic gardens. If you are prepared to walk then you can get to the coast with stunning views of the sea. There are numerous walks in the fabulous gardens but some are a bit steep so you need to... More

A beautiful house which we have visited several times, but never after dark. And of course it's stunning. With lighting different aspects of the house become apparent such as the light fittings and bookcases. The piano in the lounge was being expertly played and one of the visitors stood up and sung for us. I could have spent all evening... More
