We love the Art Deco period so paid a visit. I have to say that whilst there were some Art Deco pieces of high quality on show, not enough! This was however more than compensated for by the layout of the house, the excellent guides,...More

Really enjoyed our visit here. Nearly every room in the house was accessible to see. The gardens were really good albeit very hilly. Not surprising really as it is on the top of the hill. You can walk all the way down to a view...More

Beautiful house and gardens with rooms in Art Deco style. Lots of interesting facts and stories from the National Trust volunteers who are always so engaging and knowledgeable. Fantastic coastal views too although it is a steep walk back to the house.

Very relaxing Art Deco house in beautiful gardens which tumble down to the sea. As usual, the National Trust volunteers were helpful and informative.

Great house, delicious cream tea and most wonderful gardens. Wander around and breathe in the amazing scent of the magnolia, cherry blossom and flowers. A real taste of spring that revitalises and blows away any winter cobwebs!! A truly beautiful and interesting house and garden.

This is simply a gorgeous house, in a lovely setting, and the 20's styling is just fabulous. Although all of the main rooms are really nice, one room in particular stands out, and that is the Saloon. It is the most spectacular room! Just imagine...More

The approach to this property is down a VERY narrow lane, however its worth it. Very interesting history of the house and in excellent condition. Gardens are worth walking through but very steep. You are rewarded with great views of the coast.

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.
