This is a beautiful National Trust property, dating from the 1920's, that is set in grounds of 23 acres. It is a snapshot in time, that shows how the well off were able to live. The grounds are lovely, and run down to the sea,...More

This is a lovely way to spend an hour or so. The gardens were lit up so tastefully- great positioning of lights and glitter balls( I know but the effect was magical!). Understated but very effective. The house had also been done up ready for...More

Stunning house, inside and out: something from a different era for National Trust members. Fabulous gardens, which meander down to the sea, merging formal to natural landscape seamlessly. Looking forward to returning in a different season.

Lovely house and gardens. On damp, muddy days they expect you to cover your dirty boots to protect the carpets. Staff are on hand to assist. The gardens are beautiful, but lots of steep inclines. The volunteers provide maps of some of the less steep...More

Yes you can get to Coleton Fishacre via South West Coast Path, but I advise you to use the correct O.S Map because there are a couple of different ways to go each one can be quite strenuous.
