Fantastic gardens and lovely uniquely designed house. Gardens and garden walks are the highlights. Leading down to the south west coast path at the bottom for those that want to build their own challenge of a long circular walk along the coast to Kingswear. Superb tearoom and shop at the top and good size well maintained car park. Standard Devon... More

We fell in love with this house and gardens - so pretty. The house is not grand but it oozes quality in its furnishings and boasts a lovely layout to make the most of views. Fascinating history too. Would recommend a visit.

A group of enthusiastic gardeners visited this NT house and extensive gardens. Everyone, without exception,enjoyed it. It is situated in a valley with steep sloping sides, which involves a lot of energetic walking if you want to see all the estate as far as the sea view. Parts are not accessible to wheelchairs, the woodland walk and steps for example.... More

One of the loveliest NT houses we have visited this year. Although the majority of the contents are not original, it has been decorated to a high standard using photographs from magazines which gives it a feel of originality. You can really feel the atmosphere of the place. The gardens are beautiful, whilst not grand, you feel like you could... More

We went on a very warm day in June. We had a good lunch in the airy restaurant before viewing the extensive gardens. They are set on steep (in parts) hills leading down to the coast. There are various trails leading to wonderful wooded vista's planted with mature trees and shrubs. The first part of our walk led to a... More

Although not a great garden person this one is outstanding. The house from the flapper period was amazing and one could see yourself living there sipping gin.

We visited this house because we had heard that it was a great example of Art Deco as well as being a home of the Doyle Carte family, the foremost promoters of Gilbert & Sullivan's operettas as well as having built the grandest of London's hotels. The house was fascinating to visit & a lovely country retreat. However, the gardens... More

Quite a long drive, being on the coast to the south of Brixham, but well worth the visit. The house is clean and fresh, with excellent guides. All Arts and Crafts, the inside is a National Trust recreation from the Owner's original photographs etc and it works. If you like Gilbert and Sullivan, or remember your parents/grandparents houses you will... More
