“National Trust local visit”
Review of Coleton Fishacre

Coleton Fishacre
Ranked #1 of 47 things to do in Dartmouth
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 9, 2012

This retro style building has been placed in a wonderful setting, the views are to die for, and the gardens, have suffered this "Summer", but they still have their own magic, produced by some wonderful staff.
This location even charmed my wife, on her second visit, she enjoyed the surroundings, but as with any National Trust property, the excellant tea rooms, are most welcome, both before and after a walk around.

Thank cuddles01

Lovely to see you and your wife enjoyed your visit to Coleton Fishacre. The wet weather has certainly made the gardens a bit washed out - luckily we have such a fantastic garden team, as well as breathtaking views! I hope you visit again soon - the house and gardens open for the new season on 16 February.

What a lovely home in a stunning location. The room stewards were so helpful and obviously love to help and inform the visitors. As normal very good food in the tea rooms.
